If this runs without signature verification, would it be possible to download the update .dmg and install ssh on the update dmg file. From then you can just update to the next version and don't need to patchstick it?

osupdate download doesn't work

http://ericiii.net/sa/appletv/osupdate is not downloading as a binary but as text in a browser window. MIME type issue perhaps?

Error in auto-script for 2.1

In line 6 and 7 there is a small mistake: it reads
mkdir /User/frontrow/OStemp
rm /User/frontrow/OStemp/*

and this should be
mkdir /Users/frontrow/OStemp
rm /Users/frontrow/OStemp/*

I also choose to edit line 53 and swap the "mv" to a "cp" command, as otherwise all your downloaded files are deleted from the appleTV on reboot after update (this might be wanted - I like backups).

Auto-scripts want read-write

Do not forget that the auto scripts want a read-write mounted disk... This is the command you'd want to use if yours isn't set to mount RW by default: sudo mount -uw /
