Beginners Guide for Take 2

For the Beginner

One very annoyed wife and 6 hours later, safe to report that we're nowhere near having ATV take 2.0 sorted into a Beginners Guide. I have SSH working, but AFP / USB storage is a no no. Can't really work out why at this stage.

For those of us trying to compile this page

I am currently gathering up everything being posted in the forums into a simple procedure to allow the following:-

1) Start with Stock ATV with standard update 2.0 firmware

2) Patchstick 2.0 to allow SSH

3) Enable AFP

4) Enable external USB storage

5) Install plugins

Things I am waiting for

Sapphire plugin for ATV2.

No info on getting AFP working. Will look at alternative to drag / drop files.

Good Stuff on AFP in the above thread

Making at 2.0 Patchstick

That pesky master.passwd error when using the Patchstick - how do you mount Patchstick root again?

Error at Patchstick creation like cp: cannot overwrite directory /Volumes/Patchstick-root/ ......

Run this in the Terminal:-

    sudo rm -R /Volumes/Patchstick-root
