I am really confused and I am sure there is something really simply I am missing, but when reading the instructions on the .pdf, it says to:
Part 1 at the Mac
- Format Flash Drive. Check
- Download ATV update file. Check
(What the hell am I supposed to do with the ‘OSBoot’ volume?)
- Open ATV update file. Check
- Run the ATV Flash app. Check
(I click on the mounted volume from the desktop and a folder opens with two files - ATV Flash & a Readme).
- Agree to License. Check
- Select the Flash Drive. Check
- Select plug-ins. Check
- Copy Files. Check
- Confirmation message. Check
- Remove Flash Drive. Check.
Part 2 at the ATV
- Update ATV. Check
- Unplug. Check
- Insert Flash Drive. Check
- Power ATV. Check
- Process starts. FAIL
ATV boots normally aside from a couple of flashes of the Apple logo. At no time do I see a ATV Flash Logo and at no time does any text run down the left side.
I am using a MacBook Pro along with the latest software for the ATV. I am also using a freshly formatted SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB Flash Drive.
Also, when I plug my Flash Drive back into my Mac (have already gone through the process five times), the drive is called "Patchstick-root’. Is this normal? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
