    Default Jailbroken ATV2 - Now what?

    Hi guys,

    I've just bought a new ATV2 and used the pwnagetool to jailbreak it.
    Now what should I do? Is it possible to run movies from my NAS like I'm able to do with WDTV?

    Is it possible to install a browser? How can use this ATV at its full potential?

    Thanks,

    Still way too early days.

    Here's what you can do.. so far:

    • nitoTV can display weather and info from RSS feeds, plus install other packages.
    • Exposed enables VNC on the ATV2 so you can view the ATV's screen remotely.
    • view/play last.fm
    • run the Plex app/plugin that works with Plex on your mac to transcode and stream video to the ATV2 (not 100% working yet)
    • Use http://ericasadun.com/ftp/AirPlay/ to stream video via airplay from your windows or mac computer, including limited transcoding support.
    • Install a hack on your battery powered iOS device to allow airplay from pretty much any video app, not just the ones that offically support airplay.


    ATV2 hackers/developers, please add anything else I have missed.

    To my mind, the most exciting options are erica's airplay hacks, the VNC option. NitoTV is still in heavy development mode and I guess it will be a while off before it can locally play video.

    I'd like to see a webkit based browser and also games ported from the iPad but these things need a better app launcher framework.

    Hey, thanks for your post.

    I guess I will use the WDTV and keep the ATV in the box until they release nice hacks for it. Thats a shame, ATV is such a nice gadget.

    Regards..

    I've got a browser installed on my aTV. It came along with aTV Flash I believe.

    Hello folks,

    As below just bought ATV2 still to jailbreak it, looking at what i can do after said jailbreak....

    AirFlick looks like a nice app for the iPhone/ATV2

    Remote HD looks like another nice app

    ATV flash (black) firecore looks awsome only beta

    Been routing around the web for days now looking at what can be done at the mo, think its as stated below 'early days'

    Can anyone advise me if it would be a good time to jailbreak anyway and then wait or wait then jailbreak if you see what i mean ?

    thx in advance G

    i bought ATV with a new software installed, and was only able to break into it with Seas0nPass. From there I installed Plex, and Nito TV from terminal. which was a new expiernce for me.

    Of course it was tethered breaking, but it was super simple for me to understand. so it should be good for most others.



    having MAJOR issues with any release airflick. all my video's are high encoded, and i get issues tring to stream them. Plex works well, but has a hard time keeping up with the mkv files.

    That is your computer, not your ATV - these all need to be transcoded by VLC before they are streamed with airflick.
