update 4.0 question??????


I have just updated my atv flash to version 4.0

and all is loaded on to the apple tv.

I rebooted and nothing, it was the same and not the new apple layout

I noticed that there was TWO Maintenance section ie one for version 2.5 and one for 4.0

So I didnt want to do this without asking!! as i will muck the apple tv up

Should I now enable the UPDATE apple tv and load the update???

im not sure, im guessing so but im not sure. Updates are a nightmare!!

a check list would be most helpful

many thanks


The process for updating the AppleTV to 3.0, and installing aTV Flash 4.0 is as follows:

  1. Remove all copies of aTV Flash (folders, files, everything) from your computer.
  2. Download a fresh copy here: https://www.atvflash.com/account.php
  3. Format the flash drive to be used as described here: http://wiki.atvflash.com/index.php?title=Reformat_Flash_Drive
  4. Update AppleTV to 3.0 through Settings > General menu. (Note: Updates may need to be enabled through the Maintenance > Settings menu.)
  5. Install aTV Flash as before. The current 4.0 version will be installed, and will overwrite the outdated version that is on the AppleTV.

If you’re using an external drive as primary iTunes storage you need to add these steps:

  1. Before updating AppleTV to 3.0, switch to internal storage through Maintenance > Settings menu (synced media on external drive will not be changed)
  2. Update AppleTV to 3.0
  3. Install aTV Flash 4.0
  4. Run Smart Installer to enable USB port. http://wiki.atvflash.com/index.php?title=Smart_Installer
  5. Change storage back to external drive. The media that was previously synced to the external drive will be recognized so you won’t need to resync all your media over again.
