    Default Error when creating patchstick

    I have a Macbook Pro and when I run ATV Usb Creator I always get this error:

    Unable to mount recovery: GetMasterBlock: Error 13 opening /dev/rdisk1s2
    GetMasterBlock: Error 13 opening /dev/rdisk1s2
    mount_hfs: Permission denied
    install_recovery failed
    Failed! (0:00:58)

    Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

    i don't know much about mac's but i hear they're similar to linux....
    have you tried launching "ATV Usb Creator" w/ super user permissions?

    try this:

    1 plug in your usb stick FIRST before doing anything
    2 open the terminal and type: sudo atvusb-creator
    3 you should then be prompted to enter your password.
    if this works your will be able to launch the program with SU permissions and it should work.
