    hi I am having problems upgrading from eden to Frodo. I get to the third command prompt and it does not have enough disk space? I fallowed some instructions on wikixbmc but it doesn’t help. they list several ways via ssh to find what files are containing large amts of memory, but in the end they never explain how to erase and delete those files from my xbmc on appletv2. i’d really love your help

    • xctechs says:

      You need to save your data backup, then uninstall XBMC 11 and then install XBMC 12 and load your Backup,

      or if you want clean install, uninstall xbmc 11 first, restart and install xbmc12.2
