    Default XBMC on Your Apple TV 2


    This is great news for those of you with jailbroken Apple TV's. Since the release of our jailbreak, there hasn't really been much going on in terms of new software to utilize. The folks behind XBMC (formerly "Xbox Media Center") have managed to bring their software to the Apple TV 2. This means you can decode that awesome 1080p HD content, and utilize the hardware inside your little box.

    Due to the nature of developing for Apple TV, this isn't entirely an easy hack for the beginners. You will be required to use terminal commands, but if your familiar with this it should be a breeze.

    Instructions are located here, which should help you through it all.

    Install XBMC on ATV2 - XBMC


    UPATE: also available for iPhone/iPad by adding this source to Cydia and installing

    Don't bother on the iP4 (yet), it was designed for the iPad.
    If I somehow helped you, press thanks

    Why don't you try and find out? It's not like you're going to break your iPad.
    Also yes, it's for iPad.

    Do you think you will still be able to control XBMC from your iPhone by using XMBC remote?

    This could be a reason to get the ATV, hopefully you'll be able to use this o stream from NAS drive instead of just from itunes.....

    Other than being able to play many types of media anyone see the benefit of this install?

    I have a 1TB drive connected to my HD tv's USB port loaded with movies and other media which I can get to no problem.

    The only thing missing from the ATV2 is Hulu+ then I can get rid of my extra PS3 that I use for media streaming.
