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
