External storage on ATV 2.x?
After several attempts I'm still unable to get an external HDD attached to my ATV, I've now tried this under 2.3 and 2.0.2 firmware. I've followed this but it gives conflicting advice on whether it will work on 2.x ....
Currently on the last step I'm getting the following error ...
bash-2.05b# /sbin/kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
kextload: extension /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext appears to be valid
kextload: loading extension /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
kextload: kext doesn't have all dependencies
kextload: can't generate internal dependency graph for /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
kextload: sending 1 personality to the kernel
So either can anyone assist with the above or is it that I need to downgrade to 1.1 to get this working??
Install this patchstick http://code.google.com/p/atvusb-creator/
and use nitoTV to install usb support.
tried this just now and it worked.
some notes which you might have missed:
1) make sure you get the kext files from the 10.4.9 combo update dmg.
2) make sure you run turbo first
/sbin/kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
3) make sure you fixed permissions on the 3 files you uploaded
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IOStorageFamily.kext
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IOSCSIArchitectureModelFamily.kext
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IOStorageFamily.kext
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IOSCSIArchitectureModelFamily.kext
The way is mount external usb disk as /mnt at boot.
I have tested to do this with /etc/fstab and niload but i have some problem.
