O.k., so I purchased ATVFlash last week and have spent 3 plus days trying to get it onto my Apple TV UNSUCCESSFULLY! I have followed all the instructions to a T and have used four different USB flash drive and the Apple TV just reboots as normal. What’s going on?!??!?!?!?!
First I used a 8GB Kingston USB Flash drive, nothing. Then I noticed the post about larger USB flash drives not really working, so I switched to a 2GB Kingston Flash drive, still didn’t work. So I ran out to Staples and bought a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2GB, STILL NOTHING! O.k. I borrowed my girlfriend’s 512MB Memorex TravelDrive (one of the RECOMMENDED drives) and removed the U3 from it and reformatted it SEVERAL TIMES to make sure it was clean, installed the ATVFlash on it, was excited because this one has to work right (after all, it was one of the RECOMMENDED drives). Powered down my Apple TV, stuck it in the USB slot, rebooted the Apple TV and guess what? The Apple TV started up as NORMAL, no ATVFlash logo, no scrolling text, NOTHING!!! What’s going on??? How is this possible … I have followed the installation instructions for creating the ATVFlash … everything was done from the disc image, nothing installed directly to my machine and still no luck!
So far I have made 3 attempts via e-mail to contact the tech department (as well as tried calling) and so far no word … what’s up guys?
I need some help here, PLEASE.
