First things first. At the beginning one should write "Beginners guide to 'patchstick 2.0'" --David2tm 18:56, 19 February 2008 (CET)

If you read the Beginners Guide for 1.0 (I wrote it, too), it includes making the Patchstick as part of the process. The page will be a complete hacking of 2.0 from start to finish, including the patchstick.

Drag/drop files

To drag and drop files to the appleTV, I use MacFusion for its access to virtual SSH shares. This way you can mount the aTV disk on your mac. A version for Windows of the Fuse file system program should exist too, but never searched for it. --Tego 16:32, 23 February 2008 (CET)


I'm a complete beginner here; my ATV is still shrink-wrapped on the desk in front of me. I came to this guide primarily in order to get my system up and running with Perian, and I was also interested in the rtorrent install. But I can't make heads or tails of this page! At various places in it it seems it's working, or not working, or somewhat working.

I also looked at some other articles on making a Take2 patchstick, which seems to be the key. Those pages seem to suggest everything is ready to go, right?

will this work if i have firmware 1.1?

I am running ATV with firware 1.1. I have tried a factory reset and it turns out thats the version it came with. I tried to follow the downgrading procedures but I was unable to get a copy of the OS.dmg file from the 1.0 firmware.

Is this beginner's guide made only with those with version 2.0 or will it work for me?

Also, how soon will it be complete?

I really appreciate all the tips on this page!
