HELP! Where to get the Apple TV OS?
I just got an Apple TV from a friend with a broken hard drive (out of warranty). So I wanted to replace the hd with a new one. Since I had a 160GB hd laying around I thought it would be easy to just download the Apple TV OS, copy it to the new hd an build it into the ATV... But it's not.
Since I can't find any source for downloading the Apple TV OS there is no way for me to fix the ATV. Does maybe one of you guys have the goodnes to send me a link to a downloadable Apple TV OS?
And if so, do I just have to follow the "How To Replace an Apple TVs Hard Drive"?
PS: Just to make it clear, i have no bad intentions! I just want to fix my "new" ATV to make that peice of crap a working ATV again.
Thanks alot for your help!!!
The appletv os is always available as a download from the Apple server the issue is how to install it. the awkwardtv forums and atv-bootloader google code pages have info on how to restore from scratch.

Ok, now I think I have it. I should have read the atv-bootloader threads prior... All the files I need are in the ATV OS Updates... But I still can't find a source for the download. Even versiontracker does only link to a support document from apple.
Does one of you maybe just have a backup that you can give me? Please!
