Is something supposed to show up on my screen as I install? I followed the instructions (plugged in USB stick and repowered ATV), and my screen is totally black, and my ATV remote does nothing. Light on front of ATV is flashing orange. What's going on? Thanks.

There will be a penguin sitting on an atv and then a bunch of script running down the screen.

And now I only have a partial install. Any way to reset without deleting all my ATV content?

Takes about 10 seconds. You probably have tried making a patchstick with an incompatible USB stick. You would have seen a penguin almost immediately if the install had started. Please see:

for list of compatible USB sticks

Also if your stick came with U3, you must download and install the U3 remover from your stick's manufacturer BEFORE you try to make a patchstick from it.

Hope this helps
