  • Apple TV Version 4.4.2 (9A336a) Released


    The Apple TV was just recently updated to 4.4.2 (9A336a) shortly after a re-release of the 4.4.1 update (which was previously released and pulled then released again). The previous update contained a number of bug fixes and it is assumed that this one does the same as no official change log has been released.

    Alongside the release of the update, Apple has released a support document stating that the settings on the Apple TV must be reset before updating to version 4.4.2. For those of you who are interested in updating now, you can do so by clicking on the link below (donít forget to reset all the Apple TV settings before performing the update):
    Let us know of your experience if you go ahead with the update and for the rest of you, feel free to share any thoughts and opinions in the comments below!

      I do not own an apple tv and I'm not completely sure what it's all about except for AirPlay, but is there a JB for apple tv as well? That may sound stupid but I'm just curious...

      I have apple tv and mines is jailbroken.. Alot of perks.. Won't be updating it though... Wish I had a windows based pc then I'd have alot more things to add to it... Makes no sense that I need a windows based pc to me... Refuse to get parallels.. But it's pretty good otherwise

      Yes, there is a tethered JB out for 4.4 and hopefully an untethered on the way soon. I love my ATV2 with XBMC installed. For the cost and small footprint, you can't beat it as a media streamer.

      I have XBMC but to get all the extra channels I have to have a pc right?

      Got two of them. One is jailbroken with Firecore's ATV Black, and one is up to date for the Airplay feature. Very useful little items.

      I was so excited to hear about Apple TV Mirroring in iOS5 but now I hear it's exclusive to the iPad2 & iPhone 4S??? That is a huggggge let down... I'm surprised there isn't a tweak to open it up on the iPhone 4 /iPad 1. Thank god I can atleast mirrior my music and photos... but it would be nice to push out my gaming & facebook on my tv :*(

      I used Plex to stream content from my Mac to my jailbroken ATV.

      I love my set up with xbmc on my jb atv2. Although just moved and when I hooked everything up I'm in a boot loop so no more jailbreak for me till they come out with untethered way sad. Although I think AirPlay server and my iPad will work just fine just not as pretty

      If you're blobs are saved, you should be able to reinstall the old firmware

      Wow!! I just now took the time out and unleashed the full potential of my jailbroken ATV2... Found out I didn't need a PC and i just had to use cyber duck to send the zip files for the XBMC PLUG INS... And now I have EVERYTHING... Calling comcast in the morning to cancel my subscription... It's that extensive!!!

      Netflix got me to take my cable package down to basic. (Get a discount having cable and internet so the basic is 8$ and I save 15$ for having both.)

      So my AppleTV is used mainly for streaming Netflix.

      If you jailbreak your AppleTV then you may wanna get rid of Netflix.. But I keep my Netflix for streaming thru my other devices

      Same. I stream through my PS3s in the other rooms.
