“A few months back, AppleTVHacks.net and FatWallet set up a bounty looking for a way to use an external USB drive as a primary storage for the Apple TV,” AppleTVHacks reports.

The solution has finally arrived, but keep in mind that “the patch was written for and, therefore, tested on Apple TV software version 1.0. If you have 1.1, the patch might not work,” AppleTVHacks reports.

“The patch must still allow the Apple TV to boot from its internal hard drive but only use the external USB drive as its primary storage,” AppleTVHacks reports.
