Desperately awaiting the release of a jailbreak for Apple TV 3? It may take a while, you know that, right? Meanwhile, how about digging your old, already jailbroken 1st gen Apple TV out of the closet and supercharging it with the newest aTV Flash? FireCore has just released aTV Flash 4.5 for the original Apple TV that includes support for Mountain Lion as well as a handful of general improvements and fixes.

What’s new in aTV Flash 4.5?

  • Added support for OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
  • Added active memory management (to keep things running smoothly)
  • Added ability to copy files between playlists
  • Resolved Smart Installer bug
  • Other miscellaneous improvements and fixes

FireCore has also said they are still working on a number of additional features for the ATV1 and plan to have additional updates available soon.

Version 4.5 of aTV Flash is available through the Downloads tab in your account. If you’re already running aTV Flash on your Apple TV you can update through the Maintenance –> Manage Plugins menu.

    I just bought my Apple TV today, unaware that Apple TV 3 cant be jailbroken. So now i am stuck with some hardware that is pretty much useless to me, since i live in europe. Denmark. And we cant get anything thats worth something on it here. Basicly just an expensive YouTube box i have now. Really hoping that this could come out quick.

    Would really love a jailbreak for it <3

    Firecore says it supports Crystal HD for 1080p playback. Do the Apple TV’s
    regular OS X playback gets updated to 1080p or it;s only supported under XMBC?
