Cannot Install Boxee/XBMC

Before applying the last aTV (3.3.4) update I reset my Apple TV to factory and then did a fresh Update to 2.2

I have tried to install the XBMC luancher and Boxee/XBMC several times. Each time everything looks good and i reboot and it says “Boxee/XBMC cannot be found at path.” I checked the console.log file after an attempt to update boxee and this is what is says:

/dev/disk1s2 Apple_HFS /Volumes/boxee-0.9.3964
installer: Package name is Boxee
installer: Installing onto volume mounted at /.
installer: The install failed.
“disk1” unmounted.
“disk1” ejected.

2008-11-09 18:57:06.582 Finder[111] [DEBUG] return with status: 0

I tried to ssh in and do the manual install, but when I try to set the file system to be writable I get this:

-bash-2.05b$ sudo mount -uw /
mount_hfs: Invalid argument

I am at a loss other then to reset the device and re-flash it and hope it was just something went awry with the last flash attempt.

Got any ideas?

Is this while running the Update command found in the XBMC/Boxee menu option on the AppleTV?

Those errors were the ones I get when running update on the Boxee Package.

These are from the Boxee/XBMC launcher update:

Try this… it is somewhere in this forum… This installs B/X outside of the aTV patchstick, i.e., “ala carte”. I believe I would install the 3.3.4 WITHOUT Boxee and XBMC, and then go back and add them in via this instruction after I verified the Apple 2.2 worked with the basic aTV hack.

http://forum.atvflash.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=493&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

and, another undocumented weird thing… you must update the updater app and then update the actual app.
