Problems with 2.3.1 and Patchstick after HDD upgrade
I'm new here, and I've done some searching, but I can't seem to figure out this problem.
I bought a 40GB ATV not too long ago. I successfully "patchsticked" using 1.0b10, played around with some of the cool things available, then decided to upgrade the HDD to 160gb.
The upgrade didn't go smoothly - after piecing together steps from a few different online step-by-steps, I was up and running, and re-syncing my iTunes library.
So, my HDD upgrade is good enough for basic functionality, though I suspect an issue exists.
I cannot upgrade from 2.3 to 2.3.1. I get the "fuel gauge" but nothing happens, it just says upgrade failed. Diagnostics are clean.
Since everything else seemed ok, I thought I'd update via patchstick again, if for no other reason to enable ssh, and silence the 2.3.1 upgrade (whenever it prompts for upgrade, I lose "remote" control via my phone).
Now the patchstick won't work! I used the same USB stick I used last time, and the same version of atvusb-creator from Google Code. The error I get, right at the end, is "could not mount /OSBoot".
I'm suspect that this issue is related to my inability to upgrade to 2.3.1, that somehow my partitioning scheme isn't matching up to what Apple's (or patchstick's) process is looking for.
When I can, I'll post gpt/diskutil info from both the original and the new larger HDD, but in the meantime, maybe someone has an idea?
Thanks in advance...
