Hello and happy new year !
I just purchased ATVFlash.
I seem to be experiencing problems with the installation.
I just bought an AppleTV 40 GB running software version 2.3
Could you please help me solve this problem.
Here is what I did :
Followed the instructions and installed the software(s) on a USB stick
Unpluged the Apple TV
Inserted the USB stick
Repluged the Apple TV
Got the ATVFlash logo
Got a lot of thext flying on the screen until it stopped at the following bit of text (I give you more of what was displayed on my screen in case it helps you solve my issues) :
(please note that the first one or two characters are not properly displayed on my TV… I’ll put ??? for those… sorry)
started : BusyBox v.1.9.1
?oot = patchstick – seraching for patchstick.sh
??? : unknown operand
?oot = auto/manual/patchstick failed – starting telnetd
?c (v.1.9.1) started
Link encap : Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:32:34:1A:4B UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt 18 Base address : 0x8000
And the screen stays like that… I left it hanging for 5-7 minutes. No change !
I have tried rebooting te Apple TV (with the USB stick) and I get the same exact text.
I then turned off the Apple TV, removed the USB stick and rebooted the Apple TV and everything is back to the regular Apple TV (no ATVFlash modules or plugins).
Your help would be greatly appreciated !
