Yes, we knew you were expecting this. So, we’ll just going to come out and tell you.

The bad news is that the submitter of the USB patch no longer has time to work on it. We do understand since he actually has more exciting projects to work on (like iPhone hacking and stuff). Good luck, by the way.

Now comes the good news part. We know that it was no small feat working on such a patch. So we’re working on awarding the submitter anyway. With that, we are also working with him on releasing the code to the public (yes, that’s you!) so that more work can be done on it. Then, we can finally hook up that 1TB drive to our Apple TV.  Not to mention the possibility of hooking other USB devices to it like a DVD, Blu-ray or HD-DVD drive.  Sweet!
