    ... and yes, I've searched, read other threads and attempted procedures from those threads..

    I've reformatted my USB drive... shut down and rebooted... re-downloaded the new DMG multiple times... and even deleted and re-downloaded the ATVusbcreator files.

    Here is where I am... I open the ATVusbcreator file > make the selections for Boxee/XMBC > select the DMG file i've downloaded... the process begins, drive unmounts... remounts... and then.... inexplicably (at least to me) I keep getting this error msg...

    [I]Unable to mount image: hdiutil: attach failed - Resource busy
    install_recovery failed
    Failed! (0:00:40)[/I]

    I'd appreciate any help here... TIA :confused:

    Not sure if this is your problem, but if you've followed the steps to the "T" and it still doesn't work, it could be a USB drive problem. I've read where certain USB sticks don't work well while others do. I believe some have even taken the time to mention which ones have been tested and worked with no problems. So, maybe that's what's holding you up.
