    Default Boot from external disk

    Saw this on appletvhacks.net... Anyone got it work yet?

    Booting from USB requires booting the Apple TV as nromal then holding ‘menu’ and ‘-’ keys on the remote to initiate a restore boot. From there it takes a bit of timing, Turbo explains, “If I hold down menu and - from poweron until the first screen flash, I believe that it does the equivalent of cmd-opt-p-r. I only got it to boot from USB by releasing it at that point, then hitting it again just before the screen flashes on the second reset.”
    I've tried it a few times, but have not been successful...

    Perhaps that's useful too: http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Booti...USB_Thumbdrive

    please let us know if you can make it work!

    I've made an OSX image on a USB disk like on the sticky forum topic. I've installed ssh and ATVFiles without opening my apple tv. The only hard thing was getting the boot.efi.

    With the menu and - button the ATV does reboot and uses the usb disk to start from. I just held the buttons on the remote until it rebooted, that should be enough... If that doens't work then i guess there something wrong with the USB disk.
