    I am still trying to get the LINUX version going.

    The patchstick I downloaded from DEMONOID torrent site.
    It actually worked for a day and then froze up and then now when I boot it says
    AT4 Windows. Something bad has happened. Please restart the machine. I just hope it did not write any data into the firmware if that is possible. and when it initially starts I get the BRICKTV logo

    Wow what a mistake and Now I have to figure out how to recover or be stuck with an expensive paperweight

    Still working on a solution?????

    Maybe it was a ploy to get us to buy 2.5 LOL

    Someone should figure it out soon.
    I was always very careful with downloading that kind of stuff. Unless you really know UNIX / Linux I would not advise to just run any script that heavily interferes with your ATV Boot process.

    Post the 2.4 atvpatch to a file sharing site and I'll check it out to see if its bogus or not. I don't do torrents.

    Patchstick after 2.2 will NOT work anymore.

    Please have a look at atvpatch.com

    The will be a version 3.0 for mid July Max

    That's nice but not what I asked.

    I'm in a generous mode right now and if someone gets me the disk image, I might fix it proper so it does work regardless of what atvpatch does. Since I'm the author of the bootloader (atv-bootloader) that atvpatch is using, this is quite within my capabilities.

    hello,

    i had the same problem....
    i have an appleTV for hacking (160GB V1.0) and i have my own guide to hack from 1.0 - 2.0 to 2.0.2 with evetyting working.... but:

    i decided to try the patchstick 2.4 to see what they are selling...

    and surprize my atv was brick-ed in no time

    i could't restore my atv or ssh/afp...

    i decided to try to replace the partitions... i have 10 more appleTV's but no in my home... those are "at work" (i hack them and then i get movies for my "clients" )

    i backed up the partitions efi and recovery throught network from an appleTV with factory version 2.0 and then i replaced mine with those back-ups... but this method reguires you to connect the hdd throught USB this is because the ssh doesn't work after patchstick 2.4....

    the guide is here:

    http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Prepare_a_Hard_Drive

    efi partition:

    diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk2
    gpt add -b 40 -i 1 -s 69632 -t efi /dev/disk2

    recovery partition:

    dd if=efi.dmg of=/dev/disk2s1 bs=1m
    dd if=recovery.dmg of=/dev/disk2s2 bs=1m


    if someone needs the back-up from an appleTV with version 2.0 give me a PM.

    This patchstick installs a payload that runs under the AppleTV OS upon reboot. The payload then downloads a set of scripts from

    http://www.atv4windows.com/patchstic...scripts.tar.gz

    and extracts and runs init.sh which does

    sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/disk0s2 bs=1m

    which will zero the recovery partition and remove all it's contents.

    I'm not sure if this is malicious or an attempt to prevent the AppleTV EFI firmware from restoring OSBoot and thus wiping out all patches. I would be pissed if something erased my recovery partition.

    And the next step which downloads a set of packages will fail because the dl.getdropbox.com/u/34421/ account does not exist anymore.


    So two points 1) this will erase the contents of the recovery partition which is bad and 2) ssh might be installed but all the other packages will fail to install.

    In other words, this is poison. Do not use it.

    Little more info

    if one goes to http://www.atv4windows.com/patchstick/2.4/packages/ there is another script download that does not contain the erase of recovery.

    The current init.sh has a mod date of June 24th.

    atv4windows.com, atvpatch.com and atvmod.com have different Registrants

    Default Any thoughts on a cure

    Davilla:

    Do you have an idea on how to factory restore and get hack control over our ATVs at this point...

    Thanks
