I have the patched AppleTV which has a working USB port, and I can connect to it via WLAN.
I can see an attached USB drive and read from it via Finder/Shared/AppleTV/Volume Name…it mounts right on my desktop.

I can read and copy files from the drive to my Mac - but what I cannot do is write to the drive from my Mac - (or use it for a backup or sync routine).

Under Sharing and Permissions (Get Info) -
(unknown) can Read & Write

  • while “everyone” has No Access

I’m wondering if there is something I can do to enable full WLAN access to this drive - or if this may possibly be a limitation of the “patch” on the Apple TV?
