Talk:Enable SSH Without Opening the Apple TV
Wouldn't this require opening your Apple TV to get the required images?
Since there are reports of Linux booting, it shouldn't be tricky to make a fully legal Linux-based USB disk image that will boot up, mount the internal HD, dump its contents to the USB drive, and blink the LEDs a bit to let you know it's safe to power down again, completely automated with some shell scripts (so, no need for keyboard or video drivers). Then you have the images you need, with no naughty downloading-off-the-internets.
I'd like to see a disk image that does that, and also, after backing up the internal drive, remounts it read/write and enables SSH. Then you're ready to boot up as normal; one-stop no-hassle AppleTV ssh-injector. --Canis 23:26, 27 March 2007 (CEST)
