You've downloaded the image and tried it and it works? I tried two different patch sticks and it worked fine on both but I have no idea if it'd work on another Apple TV.

Same I used USB Image Tool. Interesting about the remote.

There's no resolution hard coded in the xorg.conf and I never selected one specifically anywhere. GNOME isn't running so try it as is, it might just work.

I'm not too sure about that. I had to move the aTV from my 720p monitor to my 1080p tv because it kept changing the resolution to 1080p. I was however using component on the monitor and HDMI on the TV.

No luck for me, using a 4GB Cruiser but not working. First used my hackintosh to install the image with terminal, but then it didnt boot, got hung on eth0 with no progress after then.
Now I am trying USB Image Tool as suggested (v 1.53) on my win7 x64 but it dies at the end of the restore saying nothing written to the drive.
"Could not write to the USB device (error 87).
The parameter is incorrect"
Did I miss something in USB Image Tool?

One of the sticks I tried was a 16Gb Cruiser and it was fine.
If you got that far it's probably not the writing to the USB device that's the problem. You have got the ethernet plugged into the network, right? The wireless won't work even if you haven't replaced it with a Crystal card.

The Network cable was plugged in, and then I tried again by removing it and trying to boot again. Im having no luck with trying to write to the Cruiser with win7, so ill try the hackintosh again and see what happens after I try again. I did just wipe out the stoopid cruiser partition on the USB stick, so maybe that was an issue with my first attempt, Ill try it again.

got it running now, and thankfully the broadcom works . I have another card to test in another atv after this, but so far so good. I wish I could get used to the apple remote after coming from the xbox1 remotes/harmony's so it will take so getting use to.
My issue was mainly that the Cruiser still had the default partition on it, and i had to use an app from U3 to remove that partition, after that I just ran the script again it installed fine. Thanks for the making this image, great to finally use the atv with HD.
Is there a way to enable the onscreen statistics so that I see the CPU/Broadcom usage as I see in other posts from Davilla here?
