In my previous post, I showed how to jailbreak your Apple TV 2 (2nd Generation).
The primary reason why you would do want to do this is to install Xbox Media Media Center (XBMC). It’s a video player application that was originally created for the Microsoft Xbox.
If you want the file in the library then use nfo files, they allow more information to be added and there are many programs available to make them on a variety of platforms.
XBMCbuntu (aka, XBMC Live) v11 shipped with a new kernel version which change the way your remote control is supported. XBMC will likely receive plain keystrokes in these situations, instead of getting commands via lirc, causing the remote to behave differently. HD audio/Audio Engine wasn't ready in time, so it got pushed back to v12.
If it finds one the update will be downloaded and prepared.
You will then be notified that a reboot is required to apply the update.
If Manual update option is selected then you will need to download the update to Open ELEC.
Most of the IR drivers are now supported directly by the Linux kernel it self instead of lirc. Unofficial builds containing test-versions of audio engine are sometimes posted on the XBMC forums, but are not officially supported.
Back to January 2012, we have seen the first Beta release of XBMC 11.0 Eden the free and open-source multimedia entertaining center.
You will now be running the latest version of XBMC on your Apple TV 2 Note: Both the computer and the Apple TV must be connected to the same network when performing this update. In order to upgrade you will need to install Linux which requires either chrystalbuntu or openelec.
The procedure might seem difficult at first but it fairly easy if you follow the instructions to the tee.
