    Default Upgrading to 2.1, installing SSH, NitoTV, etc...

    Hello,
    I'm picking up an ATV that is still running ATV Software 1.x when I get it, I want to install some hacks and update to 2.1 I'm wondering if people could let me know the best course of action to do this? Here's what I want to to...

    - install SSH
    - install NitoTV
    - upgrade the ATV to 2.1

    I'm unsure of the best way to do this in terms of the order of things? I want to use ATV USB Creator to install SSH, but the version of ATV USB Creator I have only has the option for Apple TV version 2.x should I download an older version of ATV USB Creator to work with version 1.x? If so, what version?

    Otherwise, I'll need to let the Apple TV update itself to 2.3, install SSH via ATV USB Creator, downgrade to 2.1 using OSupdate, and then continue with NitoTV. Not an issue, but wondering if this is my best option?

    Advice would be appreciated!
    Regards,
    k.

    if you only install ssh/binutils, then atvusb-creator will work fine on AppleTVs with 1.x. It's only the frontrow plugins that require 2.x.

    Ok, so I've un-checked the two plugins (Software Menu & XBMC), but it still only gives the option for AppleTV version 2.x should I get the option for AppleTV version 1.x, or do I just build the patchstick with the AppleTV version 2.x selected and it'll work on a 1.x version of Apple TV?

    Thanks,

    Oh!
    So, if I install SSH under 1.x, then update to 2.1, will I need to reinstall SSH again? Basically, once I've updated to 2.1 I'm going to use ATVUSB-creator again to install Software Menu and XBMC will there be any problems if I have SSH & bin utils checked when I build this new patchstick?

    Anytime the AppleTV OS is updated or factory restored, ALL 3rd party additions go away and you will need to re-patch.
