Create Patchstick in Tiger
See also: Create Patchstick in Leopard
(Unofficial update: if you have a mounted Tiger partition handy, e.g. a Tiger install DVD, then Reid's version of createPatchStick will find the Tiger partition(s) and ask if you want to copy the files from them, in turn.)
- The patchstick needs a bootefi, so make sure you download this file, and make sure it stays mounted on your desktop during this process.
- Download this file and extract it to your desktop.
- Open terminal and change the directory so you are inside the patchstick folder you just copied to your desktop
$ cd ~/Desktop/Patchstick
- Plug in a USB thumbdrive with nothing on it THIS WILL DELETE ALL DATA ON THE THUMBDRIVE
- Go back to terminal and type
$ sudo ./createPatchstick
- Type your user name password
- Find which disk number the thumbdrive is. THIS IS IMPORTANT, SELECTION OF WRONG DRIVE COULD ERASE DATA.The type
$ sudo ./createPatchstick /dev/diskX
- (where X is the number for the correct drive)
- Follow the instructions, when done you now can remove the drive
- Plug it into the back of your appleTV. Hold the menu and (-) button until the appleTV reboots.
- Let the patchStick run.
- Once it's done remove the patchstick, and disconnect power from the appleTV for a second so that it reboots. Now you have an SSH enabled appleTV with the Take 2 update.
To connect to you appleTV SSH in as you would have normally. (Use ssh -1 frontrow@ipaddress if your connection is closed or refused with ssh frontrow@ipaddress.)
You might have to remove the old key on your mac, to do so open terminal and type
$ rm .ssh/known_hosts
This work was made possible by all the people who have worked on developing the PatchStick for the appleTV. The patchstick is truly amazing, and I appreciate all the work done to create it.
