Stalled at Linux...

installing patchstick-
(finally was able to build the flash drive-once i did it correctly- and changed the name of my flash drive to disk2 btw)

After many tries- finally saw the apple core logo- when i used “restore by holding down the “menu” and “-” buttons on the remote. I kept the flash drive inserted during this process”

HOWEVER (many repeats) code stalls after 8 lines on:
‘starting linux’

what can i do?

What brand and size of flash drive are you using? Not all brands seem to be compatible with the Apple TV. Kingston and Memorex tend to work well.
