There is already an FTP server on the AppleTV just waiting to be activated. It's relatively simple to do so. Cut and paste the seperate code blocks into a terminal window:

Give super-user privileges:

sudo -s

Write the FTP configuration file:

cat <<EOT > /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">

Reload that configuration file after changing it:

launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist

Simple as that. It should start working right away.
