Apple TV finally hacked for USB storage expansion

Filed under: ,

Apple TV RearEnterprising Apple TV users have been putting that USB port to good use for ages now, for every hack but the most obvious one: media playback. So far you haven't been able to make a cheap, external USB drive into your primary storage device for kosher Apple TV media, but no longer. The Apple TV Hacks folks have finally figured out a method, and though some Terminal chops and an Intel-based *nix machine (like Mac OS X) are required to run the hack, and it's unclear if it'll work with updated YouTube-enabled Apple TVs running the 1.1 patch, at least it's a start for the storage space-starved.
