    I'm using a Macbook Pro.

    How new is the Mac you're using?

    Sorry that I hadn't responded to any posts in a while, but it appears that a lot can apparently happen here in 24 hours or so...

    I can't say exactly what is causing the problem some of you are having, but from reading some of the posts here, it sounds like it may be the exact hardware you are using.

    In my case, I'm using the 80 GB drive that came in my G4 mac mini mounted in a CompUSA 2.5" USB 2.0 enclosure (SKU 306130). It came with a USB cable for data and a separate one that can be used to provide power (if your port isn't providing enough?), but I'm only using the single data cable. It appears to be powered just fine with that. I'm wondering if people with external 3.5" drives are more prone to this issue?

    I created my boot disk on an Intel Core Duo iMac. OS X 10.4.4 was the base install. I didn't try to do a minimal install or anything, just went with the default.

    Cheers!
    S_Bruv,

    The answer is between <array> and the parts below it. You aren't replacing anything that is there, just adding to it.

    i modified it with textedit - can it even work with textedit or shall i use something else? Would be great if someone with a working osx atv installation could upload his Info.plist
    got a 10gb hard drive out of an old xbox with external power supply

    when i boot in verbose mode (apple + v) i get
    Extension "com.apple.driver.iTunesPhoneDriver" has no kernel dependency

    thanks in advance

    Hmm, another difference between my first (failed) and second (working) builds were my first build was done on an iMac (Intel Core 2 Duo) and my second on a MacBook Pro (also Intel 2 Core Duo). Both times I used the OSX disks that came with the MacBook Pro.

    There are instructions here of building a valid disk image:

    (second half of tutorial)


    You could maybe do that then restore to your iPod (I've not read the instructions, as I didn't need to, but they may help)
    This is what part of the original tutorial was based on. With his use of color, it might be easier for some people to understand.

    I used vi to make the changes. I don't know if textedit will try to put formating info in the file or not. If it does, then I wouldn't expect it to work. If you prefer a GUI tool, I am pretty sure that textwrangler (a free tool from the makers of BBedit) won't insert formating info.

    I just wanted to say that the real thanks should go to semthex and Turbo.. I just took the relevant parts from both of them, and added that together with a touch of my own instructions.

    Another failure.

    I've narrowed it down to three possible problems (I think):

    1) I'm using TextEdit for my info.plist (I'll do it in vi next time)
    2) I'm using an Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro with a 10.4.8 install DVD (too new?)
    3) The drive is 3.5"

    I can fix the first problem, but if it doesn't work, I'm screwed. Unless somebody uploads a dmg of their install. But that would be a terrible idea ;-).

    Hey,

    Okay, my Mac Pro is very new indeed (last week), but the install discs are still 10.4.8. I've also been editing Info.plist (with the text in the right place, it turns out) with TextEdit, but surely that's not the problem, is it?

    My MacBook Pro is also new enough to come with 10.4.8 discs. What do y'all think, though? Worth a try?

    Incidentally, has anyone got AirPort to work once the ATV is in OS X, or is it Ethernet only?

    Cheers!

    S_B
