Fixing permissions?

I am trying to fix the problem outlined in this thread here:

Apparently the solution is to fix the apple tv’s permissions but I am not quite sure how to do that.

Could anyone explain to me how to do this?

you need to ssh into atv, I use putty, and chmod the files you want to fix, do a search on xbmc forum

Thanks for the reply. I figured it out.

For other noobs like myself who need to do the same thing:

Go into terminal and type: ssh (xs are your apple tv’s ip address)

type alpine for the password

then type: chmod 0755 /private/var/root/

and your done.

Now I am not sure at all if thats the normal way to do it but it worked for me.
