>> Hi there, I am having the same problem as you guys were.
>> ATV updated to Version 3.0.1 and of course XBMC dissapeared.

>> You guys have obviously solved this problem but I am totally lost when it comes to following your instructions.

>> Is there any chance that there is a 'blonde' solution to this problem?

>> Appreciate your help.
============================================
Well, the instructions look like this. I'll add a couple more instructions IN CAPS assuming you know nothing....BLONDE AND ALL THAT

1) "patchstick" the 3.0.1 ATV (You should just use your old patchstick you used previously on the ATV )

I ASSUME YOU HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE.
PUT YOUR PATCH STICK IN THE POWERED DOWN APPLETV AND PLUG IT IN. WAIT UNTIL ITS DONE. POWER DOWN THE ATV AND REMOVE THE PATCH STICK. POWER BACK UP AND WAIT TO SEE THE NORMAL ATV MENUS.

2) ssh into it the ATV and download 3.2 Launcher

TO DO THIS OPEN A TERMINAL WINDOW IN YOUR COMPUTER OS.
ON A MAC THIS IS /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app . I FORGET WHAT IT IS ON WINDOWS;-) IN THE TERMINAL WINDOW AT THE $ PROMPT TYPE.....

ssh frontrow@appletv.local

IT WILL THEN ASK FOR A PASSWORD

type "frontrow" (no quotes) for the password

ONCE YOU'RE IN AND SITTING AT THE $ PROMPT AGAIN TYPE (OR CUT FROM HERE AND PASTE) THE FOLLOWING BEGINNING AT "wget" TO DOWNLOAD THE NEW BETA3 LAUNCHER.

Type:
"wget http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/858897/XBMC/Launcher-3.2.beta3-debug.run" WITHOUT THE QUOTES

AFTER THIS IS DONE YOU'RE STILL IN THE TERMINAL WINDOW WITH A $ PROMPT again....

3) Install the Launcher BY TYPING THE FOLLOWING COMMANDS (THE FIRST GIVES YOU PERMISSION TO RUN THE NEW LAUNCHER THAT YOU JUST DOWNLOADED WITH THE wget command AND THE SECOND ACTUALLY RUNS IT .... I THINK.

Type:
chmod +x Launcher-3.2.beta3-debug.run

WHEN IT BRINGS BACK THE $ PROMPT

Type :
./Launcher-3.2.beta3-debug.run

Enter the appropriate password "frontrow" and answer "Y" when it asks to restart the finder.

ONCE THE APPLE 3.0.1 MENUS SHOW UP AGAIN THERE WILL BE A NEW MENU ITEM TOWARDS THE LEFT CALLED "Launcher". GO THERE WITH THE ATV REMOTE. UNDER THIS MENU YOU CAN SELECT DOWNLOADS>BOXEE 0.9.14.6992 AND LET IT DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL AS YOU DID BEFORE 3.0.1.

4) From your ATV Menu> Launcher > Downloads, install Boxee alpha 0.9.14.6992.

Note: Please do not select the Launcher 3.1

5) Launch Boxee from ATV Menu >Launcher >Boxee .

HOPE THAT MAKES SOME SORT OF SENSE. ITS LATE AND I'M TIRED. IF I'VE SCREWED UP HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL POST ANY CORRECTIONS NEEDED ( AND POINT YOU TOWARDS A WINDOWS TERMINAL IF YOU NEED IT.)

goose

ps, note I'm just a user. If the above has problems feel free to fix it and don't blame the boxee folks!
