    Could someone please post a checksum output of the boot.efi?

    E.g.,

    $ cksum boot.efi
    1435602359 298800 boot.efi

    I went through the steps and the appletv seemed to entirely ignore the fact I had the usb drive connected. Startup was black background with silver apple logo, then straight to appletv intro video.

    Well, second time through and I've got a bit further. I now get the grey apple on light background for a while, the spinner starts and then after a couple of minutes I get the ghostbusters (err, prohibitory) sign.

    FYI, I'm using a MacBook Core Duo.

    I uploaded my boot.efi at OiNK for the people that doesn't want's to open their Apple TV.
    I got it up on Demonoid too.
    (can I say that or will I get banned or something???)

    OK, I managed to USB boot OSX, and get SSH and VNC running.

    However, now when I SSH into the Apple TV, and try to change anything on the OSBoot section (copy files to it, rename Finder.app, etc...), I get the message "Read-only file system".

    Any ideas?

    I'm unsure if this will work, since i'm still in 'prohibition'-land, and can't try it myself, but you could try typing

    $ mount -uw </Volume/name>

    and see if that helps

    in Terminal:
    sudo mount -o rw,remount /dev/disk0s3 /
    to get read-write.



    To automatically mount it as read-write, go to the root of OSBoot and in Terminal:
    touch .readwrite
