Apple TV has new firmware, a new interface and a raft of new features! We need to know where we can download the image of this firmware, so we can start taking it apart!

I just downloaded and installed it, it looks like whatever the AppleTV itself checks updates against hasn't been updated with Take2 so I just reinstalled 1.1.

Edit: oh. Apple's site. "Coming Soon." My patchstick has long been formatted... and apparently they don't work under Leopard quite right. Damn.

If you did archive install (where it saves your previous system) when you installed leopard, with some tweaks to the createPatchstick script to copy the files from /Previous System.localized/<datestamp>, it can be made to work. But I still had some problems getting ssh to work (my archived previous system was 10.4.11). I ended up modifying the launchd script on the patchstick to mount the recovery partition, overwrite the recovery image with a 1.0 OS.dmg (my @tv came with 1.1), then factory restore'd and then finally ran the patchstick again against 1.0...


Has anyone thought of the possibility that AppleTV Take 2 is based on Leopard rather that Tiger, if it is it would probably mean anything not included that was kept on the system from 1.0 would probably not work

This is something we've been hoping to see since the last update... Given the features of the new Take 2 interface, it looks like its Leopard-based. This is very likely as it would concentrate their codebase for OS X-based products. Also—in the past, the update has overwritten the OSBoot partition with the new version. I don't see this changing with the Take 2 update.
