Trying to install ATV Flash 4.1 on my 2nd Apple TV, which has the latest ATV OS (3.0.2?). Patchstick creation is successful, and it unmounts and tells me it is ready to use. When I plug it into the Apple TV, the Fire Core logo comes up and it appears to be detecting the flash drive. Then the screen goes black for 2 minutes and comes back on with a progress bar and says “loading.” After about 10 seconds it says “Installation failed, please try another USB drive” or something of that sort.
I’ve used this exact USB drive before to install ATV Flash 3.6.3 on my original Apple TV. That worked fine and I’ve never had any problems. I’ve never updated the software on that box because I’ve been completely content with how it functions. I’ve tried another USB drive for this 4.1 install and it does the same thing. The last thing I can think to try is zeroing out the data on the flash drive, but I can’t imagine that will help anything.
I tried installing ATV Flash 3.6.3 right when I got this Apple TV out of the box. It had 2.4 installed so I figured it would function exactly as my other Apple TV does. It was giving me errors during the installation, so I figured I may as well update to 3.0.2 and try to install the latest ATV Flash. No luck anywhere. Help?
