[hacked]ATV upgrade question

Hi guys, I've been running an unlocked ATV with version 2.x for some time and I'd like to know what the procedure is for upgrading to 3.x?
Do I need to revert back to factory standard then create a new patchstick?

First you need to update the firmware on your ATV. Then you need to re-patch as the firmware update always removes any plugins that were installed.
Check my signature for more info.

Thank you, I wasn't sure if it was as easy as that. I'm used to being cautious updating my iPhone that's jailbroken.
I shall update and repatch, many thanks

Quick question:

I stopped my ATV from contacting the update server, how do I edit the hosts file to remove the loopback address?

This function is included in the free base version of patchstick
