    Hey Bugula, you didn't have the "prohibited logo" problem?? Where it boots fine the first time but then every time after that you only get a prohibited sign. Only way to boot it then is into safe mode.

    yeah, i did.

    when i hooked the drive back up to try and get Synergy installed i received the dreaded icon. so now i have to do the install again on another drive that can run off a hub.

    fingers are crossed that someone finds a simple way to get xvid going...

    I tried it with the boot.efi from img and it worked fine from the first moment!

    I can use VNC and connect to it!

    today I will try to modify the ATV itself

    if anyone knows the solution to the prohibited sign, PLEASE let me know.
    If it requires running some sort of script or something, please provide a link to where I can get it too.

    thanks

    I installed osx on my atv without any problems, but only the resolution on my appletv is only 720x480. I can't change it and I really don't know what kind of drivers I will need for this.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Aptroost - Check page 11. Perhaps your answer is there? I see some discussion of this issue. I didn't go through it though.

    This all seems great... all the great work and tutorials out there have convinced me to buy an appleTV. I haven't opened it up yet (way too late to start this stuff, but two questions off the top of my head:

    1) If you come up with a working, minimal OS X install on the USB drive, could you copy it to a disk image; and when you're booted from the aTV, back up the aTV drive to its own image, and then restore the OS X image to the aTV drive? That would get you into OS X on the aTV drive itself, without opening it up. And you could easily restore it to its original state - you could go back and forth at your leisure using the two images on the USB disk.

    2) If I read this (entire... whew) thread correctly, it seems the hardware keeps (re)creating /Volumes/YourExternalDisk/System/Library/Extensions.mkext and /Volumes/YourExternalDisk/System/Library/Extensions.kextcache upon every boot, and this is what causes the ghostbusters sign and 'unbootability.' If this is so then the above idea wouldn't be great, because you could brick the aTV by rebooting it (or maybe just force yourself to void the warranty to pull and restore the drive (or maybe just force you to boot into safe mode to remove the files again... but then it might just recreate them upon the next boot)).

    Could you simply delete those two files, then create empty files with the same names, and change the permissions of those empty files to make them unwriteable and unreadable, so that the OS cannot overwrite them? Or does merely having any such-named files in such places cause the boot problem?
