For AppleTV users, there hasn't been an easy way to get Boxee's Beta loaded since we released it publicly at CES this year.
We're happy to report that a few users (see blog post below for full credit) teamed up to resurrect the ATV-Usb creator and craft an updated solution specifically for the Boxee Beta. Even better - if you already have Boxee Alpha installed on your AppleTV, you should be able to just update Launcher and then update Boxee to install it, no new patchstick needed.
Our blog post about zee whole shebang is below.
Last week, shortly after Avner’s post on the updated Beta version and the unfortunate lack of AppleTV support (unless you have your SSH teeth fully grown in), the powers that be resurrected the atvusb-creator for Mac.
Yep. You can now, once more, pwn your AppleTV following these super simple instructions, and get the Boxee Beta on that shiny Apple box. In fact, if you already have Boxee Alpha installed, you should be able to just update Launcher and then update Boxee to achieve the same result :)
Kudos to JimWiley and hillbilly1980 from the Boxee forum for making the original update script, and Amet, davilla and stephan.diederich from Team XBMC and atvusb-creator for fixing the Launcher, SoftwareMenu and the Creator itself, permitting this goodness.
Enjoy, and let these guys know you appreciate their efforts by commenting below and/or here
