Upgrade ATV2 Plex to 0.6.6

This post has already been read 8717 times!

What I had to to get 0.6.6:

it’s worth it, since 0.6.6 has resume-on-watch, and trick play now works for forwards and reverse tricks!

$ – shell commands I entered from the JB’ed ATV2.
[ ] – output from the commands.

The biggest deal was removing the symlink for Plex’s frappliance. I suppose if I did that first I would have to bother with the other commands….

$ apt-get update

$ apt-get upgrade

[ E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) ]

$ apt-get upgrade

[ Setting up com.plex.client-plugin (0.6.6) ... ]
[ ln: creating symbolic link `/Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances/PLEX.frappliance': File exists]

[EDIT: You can safely ignore the error creating the symlink]

$ apt-get install com.nito.nitotv

– removed the command to rm the symlink, you should leave it there. It worked for me without the link, but I re-created it anyways.
– removed the Confluence wiki markup :) wrong blog.
