FireCores atvflash is where it's at. You can stream virtually any content, including mkv and xvid without any conversion tricks. Yes it costs $$, but it is 100% worth it. Also, my ATV /did/ replace my cable service. I use Netflix instead of paying for some ridiculous package and love it; I dropped my tv service a year ago. Then again, I'm not really into sports which is what many people have these crazy tv packages for.

U can get 75 000 free hd or dvd quality movies and tv shows by installing "icefilms" in xbmc!!
This is crazy! Why do people say there is not much to do on a jailbroken apple tv?

Managed to jailbreak my new ATV2 at 4.4.4 , you need to turn off firewall and do the pwned dfu thing and it is so different from iphone the way you trigger it but I don't have a HDTV yet...

Plex - A Complete Media Solution to see what it can do. Be sure you download the media server also.
What Plex basically does is scour the internet for web pages that offer video (Hulu, YouTube, JustinTV, ABC, PBS, Comedy Central, etc.) and pools them all into one location so you don't have to browse from page to page. It's quite awesome if you can get it to work.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to get plex running smoothly on my ATV2.

My AppleTV would be practically worthless without jailbreak (and thus no xbmc)

Keep getting blocked by iTunes loading the custom firmware. "Apple TV cannot be restored (error 1600)"
Anyone know how to get around this on OSX Lion and iTunes 10.5.2??
I went with the seas0npass recommendation of having the latest version of iTunes, but I suspect that's what's hindering me.

This works fantastically.
Once you do such.
You will never go back.
A TOTALLY different device.
I love streaming from all sources.
I love having this small black box accept almost any type of file.
I sorta consider the apple tv useless without jailbreaking it.
(Unless you simply want to buy content from apple.)
On a side note.
If you Jailbreak it.
I rarely leave its interface for anything.
Happy new years.
Jawbones come with such a cable.
Worked for me.
Totally worth it.

Just got Apple TV2 for christmas. Out of the box, this thing is pretty weak as you have to pay for pretty much everything it offers. Jailbroke the ATV2 to get NitoTV, XBMC, and ATV Flash (had to pay for it). These upgrades make ATV2 a completely different device and now that it supports the untethered jailbreak, I just unplugged it from my tv and brought it over to my gf's apartment to stream free movies from icefilms and Navi-X. Im def waiting to see if running iOS apps on appletv works because that would just give another reason to shell out the $99 for an ATV2.Download My Bliss Weather Mod for LowerAW: http://www.mediafire.com/?pelfb6v1imjfrm6

EDIT: Nevermind i got Icefilms and Navi-X installed. Just tried it again, and for some reason it worked this time. Thanks for the heads up on Navi-X never even heard of it before.

I'm on windows and getting the iTunes errors(1600,1604). Tried several different times with no luck. If anybody knows a fix please post for all of us having this problem.

FYI to anyone just jailbreakiing: don't waste your money on ATV Flash from Firecore. I paid for it and:
1. Nito TV does nothing
2. XBMC won't install through ATV Flash menu or Nito TV
3. Plex isn't even an option to install, even though their website lists it as part of the package.
So, basically I paid $30 to get the world's slowest web browser and weather on my Apple TV. NO THANKS!!
Oh, but they offer you ways of installing XBMC yourself, which is basically the same info you can find on XBMC's site to do it yourself for free.
So, again, don't waste your money. Just go out and find the walkthroughs to install the software yourself.
