How to install XBMC on Apple TV 2

by tomek on January 21, 2011


xbmc apple tv 2 install How to install XBMC on Apple TV 2XBMC has finally been released for the new Apple TV. Here you have all the instructions you need to get it working on your device.

NOTE: the following HOW-TO requires you to have Jailbroken ATV2 version 4.1 or 4.2.1.

Here is how to jailbreak your ATV2:
How to jailbreak Apple TV 2 on iOS 4.2.1 with Seas0nPass
How-To: Jailbreak Apple TV 2G on iOS 4.2.1 with PwnageTool

Installing XBMC

Step 1 (accessing the Apple TV): in the Terminal application on your Mac, enter the following:

ssh root@AppleTV.local

or

$ ssh root@<your ATV2 IP adress>

if AppleTV.local doesn’t work (find your atv IP address in Settings ->General -> Network).

Use “alpine” as your password if you haven’t changed it already.

  • If you named your Apple TV something other than “AppleTV” then you need to replace the text above.
  • The first time you do this, it might take a few moments to establish a connection.

Step 2: Paste the following code into Terminal (line by line; hit Enter after each line)

$ echo “deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

After XBMC is successfully installed, Frontrow (ATV2 home screen) will restart and you will see XBMC in it.

Here is how to get XBMC if you have already installed aTV Flash or nitoTV:

  • aTV Flash: download XBMC via Maintenance –> Manage Extras.
  • nitoTV: install the latest nitoTV to auto-install XBMC

    I’ve heard various problems with j/b’ing a new ATV2 iOS. Which is more successful for the purpose of installing XBMC – PwnageTool or Seas0npass?

  • Blowndub

    I just did Seas0npass, went quite well

  • salchicha

    Forgive my ignorance as I’m quite new to jailbreaking, and I don’t even have an ATV2 (yet?), but does this XMBC hack mean that this would allow it to play all the other video formats, such as mkvs? I just ask because the ATV2 has limited codecs & packages as far as I know…

  • salchicha

    Never mind, I checked the previous article, and the xbmc site!

    So i installed it.. but how do i play video off of the server?

  • Chan

    Hi,
    I jailbreak fine using Pwnage link above. Everything works, however, I couldn’t ssh into the box because there’s no ssh daemon (using nmap to check for sshd) running on the ATV 2. What am I missing? Thanks.

  • ATV2bozmac

    Hi,

    I’m wondering, do you need to continue booting ATV 4.2.1 firmware in tethered jailbroken mode to run XBMC, or can you jailbreak, boot in tethered for the purpose of installing XBMC, then not boot in tethered but still run XBMC?

  • Evolutionusc

    Works OK… 1080p playback is a little choppy

  • Evolutionusc

    have to boot tethered. without it you won’t be able to run XBMC as I understand it

  • Evolutionusc

    If it’s a network computer you’re trying to stream from, make sure you have SMB enabled in preferences>sharing>file sharing>options (Mac) make sure your computer is in the workgroup “WORKGROUP” (Mac and Windows) and has file sharing enabled on the appropriate folders (Windows)

  • Mitch Manor

    When it says 1080p support, is this saying it will output to your TV in 1080? I thought the box already handled 1080p, but could only output it as 720p.

  • Stefan

    Can I use EyeTV (USB) with this?

  • Evolutionusc

    It will only display 720p but downsizes the 1080p videos to display at 720p resolution. The big difference is the massive video support XBMC gives you. From what I’ve been experiencing the ATV2 is not powerful enough to get 1080p to play and prefer Plex’s transcoding method for ATV2. Just my opinion however.

  • Juice15F4i

    So after i JB’d my atv and hooked it to my television i typed in the first command line and this is was i receive, “$ ssh root@192.168.1.105 -bash: $: command not found” does anyone have any suggestions? I also tried the local version to no avail. I re broke my box and i get the same lines. Thanks in advance.

  • Ksporry

    I installed XBMC, and it works about 50% of the time. That is to say. When it works, it works fine. Cannot see issues, except: When I exit XBMC, 50% of the time it crashes my ATV2, with the result that I have to haul my study to the living room, just to be able to do a tethered boot. I’m not exaggerating here, 50% of the time when I exit XBMC to my ATV2, it just hangs up, freezes and demands a restart… That’s really not acceptable. The only reason I put up with it, because so far Plex doesn’t want to read files from my NAS. once I can do that from my ATV2, XBMC gets the boot, unless the stability issue is corrected.
    Oh, just for info. I am not hastily pressing buttons like an impatient git. I take my time, let each previous menu load up, and wait a second or two for the system to stabilise before I continue to press to the previous menu section. It freezes up on the moment I go from the main menu to the exit button and click that exit button.
    And for what it’s worth, anything should withstand impatient zapping with remotes….

    XBMC on ATV2 doesn’t support .iso files, as of yet. It can open them but you can’t go past the opening screen.

  • Guest

    What he says is true. ATV2 really only supports specific codecs provided by Apple for Apple’s use, meaning basically nothing but h.264 and some audio codecs. XBMC allows you to play back just about any video or audio codec on the planet.

    They’ve discussed the 1080p output option. I don’t think it is a high priority for them. 720p is pretty nice and at least, if you have 1080p files you can play them now.

  • Guest

    So that others understand the answer to your question, the answer is basically yes. Insofar as much as what XBMC for any other OS plays back.

  • Guest

    There’s a bug associated with indexing the contents of your shares. If you don’t set the content and/or you stop the scan, you shouldn’t crash, except under the rare circumstances where there’s a problem with your media file. I crash most often when trying to play back a 1080p file. XBMC seems to work properly when I play back a normal 720p or lower resolution video. Almost never crashes on audio, except, again, while the indexing process is ongoing.

    If your Apple TV runs software version 4.2.1(2100) on iOS 4.3 XMBC will give you errors like “Audio Device Error” and it won’t play MKV files. I tried SnowBreeze, PwngeTool, Seas0nPass and XBMC was giving me the same errors as the latest official release of XBMC doesn’t support h.264 decoding and AC3/DTS pass thru. So forget for now XBMC with iOS 4.3

    But I managed to restore it to previous firmware without SHSH blobs and use GreenPois0n to jailbreak and install XBMC again. Follow this tutorial: http://arturito.net/2011/04/12/apple-tv-2g-untethered-jailbreak-and-xbmc-installation-ios-4-3-working/

    2. Open Terminal and SSH (putty) into your Apple TV2. Type: ssh root@your-ip-address, then your password (default is alpine)3. Type: passwd and enter a new password (if you haven’t already)4. Type: echo “deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list5. Type: apt-get update6. Type: apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV

Its easier to add repo’s, add or remove XBMC/Nito/Couch Surfer etc and clean the cache, remove packages, free memory onthe Atv or idevices.

    1) ES File Explorer (free) is a must have file app in itself. In the top left corner is a button that says Local. Press it and then FTP. Then press the Menu at the bottom where your back or home buttons located. You will see an option ‘New’. This will allow you to choose sftp. Fill in the Info and connect.This will set up the server for future uses.

    2) AntTek File Explorer & AntTek FTP/Frost/Serpent Client- Es File Explorer works on LG Optimistic but the sftp option is not available for some reason. I found AntTek and I am liking it but still prefer Es File Explorer on my Acer a500 for now. This is still good so install the file explorer first then install the serpent client next. Open the app and at the top left corner you will see ‘device’s button, press it and go down to network and press.Create New and then Sftp and fill out your IP, root, password. This is SSH like cyberduck and winscp. If you want to enter command lines like terminal on Mac you can with

    3) Better Terminal Emulator Free or Pro- With this you choose btep I believe not local. Fill in the information and with this one you can create shortcut which adds a widget on your home screen that boots right into your device and saves it for future uses. This is a very fast way to enter commands and the file explorers are a fast way to add repo’s, clean cache and free memory on you ATV or iPhone/itouch. No more booting your computer and then software to do quick fixes or new adds or removing and reinstalling xbmc etc. I also recommend Thumb Keyboard which is great on tablets for fast typing to make the whole saying quick and fast. The only thing is you must have android for these apps. Not sure any longer if the iPhone can SSH into the ATV. There is iFile and Mobile Terminal but I forgot most hacks ever since I got me android. I hope this was helpful, I know I would have found it so. Let me know what you think. If you want pro versions get 4shared and find blackmart alpha apk and search on there for them. Take care
