Apple TV 2

Today I bought myself an Apple TV 2 (ATV2). Damn that thing is small!

First thing I did was to JailBreak it in order to get XBMC running on it. I used Seas0nPass from Firecore to do this. And fortunately it is very easy – they actually have an untethered jailbreak of the latest 4.4.4 (iOS 5.0.1 – 9A406a).

In order to get XBMC running one just has to ssh to the ATV2 🙂

$ ssh root@<your ATV2 IP address> (Use “alpine” as your password if you haven’t changed it already.)

$ echo “deb ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list

$ apt-get update

$ apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
