Harddrive upgrade with no 3rd party software

by editor @ AppleTVHacks.net on March 26, 2007


Until now, 3rd party partitioning software has been necessary to perform a harddrive upgrade on the Apple TV, meaning it can be performed solely for the cost of the new harddrive.

Thanks to AppleTVHacks.net reader, Epon, we now have a method where the built in “factory restore” does the work for us. The updated process can be seen over on the harddrive upgrade tutorial page.

  • But if you put a hard drive with a full Intel install of Tiger on it, can the Apple TV be used as a mini Mini?

  • “Until now”? It’s not even been out for a week!

    You guys rock.
