Apple TV’s new remote: the iPhone

by editor @ on November 26, 2007


Didn’t we have this discussion a few months back about making an Apple TV remote out of the iPhone?  Well, somebody did it.

A posting on the Romanian blog, Pic Poc, has detailed steps in order to turn your iPhone into a full-fletched Apple remote.   It requires these “simple” steps:

  • install XAMPP (OS X web server)
  • install Brandon Holland’s IR keyboard kext
  • edit  edit /etc/sudoers and /etc/rc.local
  • install the Apple TV remote web app on to your iPhone

Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

    Huge health warning for anyone attempting to edit sudoers.
    There are special procedures for editing this file – you can’t just edit it like a normal file. Making a mistake could require a full apple restore.
