new to this forum,hi I'm a 1st. gen ATV killer
I have done alot of mods, to the hardware some have killed the apple TV and some have worked well.
Has anyone done the pata to sata mod and installed the adapter reversed and burned the board?
I also built a 20 amp 5v power supply and removed the internal 7.2 amp apple power supply and when I plugged in a cooling fan to the usb port in the rear the board died (ATV was jail broken).
I have also used nylon pillars and longer screws to create more internal air flow alonf with removing the big rubber death pad and adding rubber tip toes to allow air flow from under neath. pics here Help BAD APPLE TV - MacRumors Forums
