Originally posted on [[1] [Shalon's blog]] To follow these steps you will need to have:

- SSH enabled on your Apple TV (I won't get into that just yet but http://wiki.awkwardtv.org is a good start)


Step One: Make you sure know the ip address of your apple tv. You can find this in your apple tv menus under Settings:Network

Step Two: Download the update from apple. 2Z694-5248-45.dmg

Step Three: Open a new Terminal window from your osx Applications:Utilities folder and navigate to the folder you stored the update dmg in.

Step Four: Type sftp -1 frontrow@youripaddress into the terminal window substituting 'youripaddress' with your apple tv's ip address. Note: the password is frontrow.

Step Five: Enter put 2Z694-5248-45.dmg. The dmg will now copy to your AppleTV. Once transfer is complete type bye which will close the sftp connection.

Step Six: Type ssh -1 frontrow@youripaddress into the terminal window substituting 'youripaddress' with your apple tv's ip address. Note: the password is frontrow.

Step Seven: Next type in sudo mount -uw / and if prompted enter frontrow for the password.

Step Eight: Now you can execute the following commands to make a backup of your 1.0 Software.

mkdir 1.0.backup mkdir 1.1.files cp -p -r "/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Backrow.Framework" ~/1.0.backup cp -p -r "/System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app" ~/1.0.backup

Step Nine: Now execute the following commands to extract the files necessary from the 1.1 update.

hdiutil mount 2Z694-5248-45.dmg cp -p -r "/Volumes/OSBoot 1/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Backrow.Framework" ~/1.1.files cp -p -r "/Volumes/OSBoot 1/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleTV.Framework" ~/1.1.files cp -p -r "/Volumes/OSBoot 1/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iPhotoAccess.Framework" ~/1.1.files cp -p -r "/Volumes/OSBoot 1/System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app" ~/1.1.files

Step Ten: Execute the following commands to remove the old files and replace them with the newly extracted ones.

sudo rm -r /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Backrow.Framework sudo rm -r /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iPhotoAccess.Framework sudo rm -r /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app sudo cp -p -r ~/1.1.files/Backrow.Framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks sudo cp -p -r ~/1.1.files/AppleTV.Framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks sudo cp -p -r ~/1.1.files/iPhotoAccess.Framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks sudo cp -p -r ~/1.1.files/Finder.app /System/Library/CoreServices

Step Eleven: To fix an issue with the sleep fuction no longer working please execute the following:

sudo chmod u+s /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleTV.framework/Resources/SettingsHelper sudo chown root:wheel /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleTV.framework/Resources/SettingsHelper


Step Twelve: Reboot the Apple TV by executing

sudo reboot
