After smallatv.dmg, all I get is a question mark
I was having some issues with my apple tv, and i followed the procedure on this thread to a t, to virginize it with the smallatv.dmg file:
Now, however, my apple tv wont boot, and only gives me a flashing drive / question mark. The disk checks out ok in disk utility, and i've done the procedure a couple times to be sure, even with a zero out on the drive inbetween.
I'm stuck here... anyone have any suggestions?
i had the same problem as you. couple of things to double check.. make sure when you partition the hd that you use GUID (in the options panel) when creating the OSBoot partition.
also.. i'm not sure if this is NECESSARY, but i used two partitions... the first being a FREE SPACE (option instead of "osx journalled") partition (400mb) and the second being (OSBoot) osx journaled (as well as GUID).
that being said.. i guess you would want to make sure the you're using the intel version of osx install.
it took me about a day to work out the kinks, but i eventually got it worked out (i'm not particularly adept to hacks like this, but i had some free time on my hands).
i hope that i have been more help than hurt (some of the nomenclature may be off here or there). good luck!
