xbmc wizard apple tv 2 Supercharge your current XBMC installation with XBMC Hub Wizard If you are a fan of jailbreaking your Apple TV’s, or even your iDevice (iPad, iPhone, iPod), then you are likely aware of XBMC. This awesome multi-media platform has worked its way from the original XBOX all the way to your Apple TV 2, and even your iPod Touch. Though installing XBMC is one of the easiest hacks to through on your jailbroken Apple product, getting XBMC set up correctly, and effectively, is a process that can take the better part of a year to learn, understand, and master. That is, until the release of the new XBMC HUB Wizard.

The team over at XBMC HUB, including myself, work tirelessly to develop addons, build tools, offer support, and provide guidance for all XBMC users at every technical level. That said, we saw that there was a growing number of individuals who wanted to experience XBMC to the fullest, but felt overwhelmed when trying to get addons installed, repositories set up, or fixes implemented from month-to-month.

It was this realization, and the desire to help simplify the process for the all users including those mainstream individuals, that the folks over at XBMC HUB sought out to build the XBMC HUB Wizard. This tool simply supercharge your current XBMC installation.

    Will running through this tutorial break anything if I already have XBMC installed? Looking through the list of what is included, I see a lot of repos and fixes that I don’t have. Will this install just replace what I already have?

  • Ben

    Is it available for windows

  • Mathias

    Where is the windows Version? How many people on this planet use Mac???

  • ig888ack

    My Apple TV 2´s remote stop work after install this Hub Wizard!?! Any clue why?

  • james

    ATV3 jailbreak?

  • Mike

    Windows please.

  • OrPhEuS

    WTF …….No Windows Version??????

  • coldinupstateny

    Thanks. Worked like a charm. This is great. I got a lot more channels now than before

  • microfud

    Well, apparently, the developer of this application uses a Mac. I’m sure if you volunteered to buy him a PC, he’d look into developing a Windows solution.

  • JackNapier

    lol

  • hellyeah

    windoooooooows! ;(

  • JONS

    I used this wizard, and I’m not actually impressed. For me, most of the installed add-ons fail to work. My xbmc installation is now extremely buggy, with frequent hanging and lock ups. I wish I had never used this wizard.

    How can I undo this wizard? I used NitoTV to completely uninstall XBMC and then reinstall it but the content installed by the wizard is still present in XBMC :(

  • donnino

    I did try to superchsrge my ATV with this program. Instead of supercharging it it just erased all I had already installed INCLUDING MY FAVORITES. If you have most of them installed I would recommend not to use it.

  • rich

    does super tv work for anyone?

  • JONS

    Never mind. The issue what that the installer didn’t run to completion and give me the green tick. After running a re-install everything is working great! The range of add-ons is ridiculous!

    If using this wizard make sure you let it run until the green tick is displayed in the app window. It can take quite a long time but it will get there eventually.

  • Synik

    Got the green checkmark, but it didn’t do anything. I’ve got the same repositories that were there before, none added. I’m happy it didn’t cause any problems like others have commented.

  • bakgi

    I can’t get it to work with my Apple TV. It works great with my iPad. I have installed FireCore’s ATV Flash (black) on my Apple TV… Does that have anything to say in that matter?
    One out of ten, it ask for a password, when I try to hit the “Configure AppleTV 2″-button… But nothing happens after that…

    What to do? -please help me.

  • slimjoey

    my apple tv doesnt appear in the drop down box? help

  • http://twitter.com/slyrobber SlyRobber

    I too want to know if this will work on an ATV2 with Firecore installation already in place? Can it hurt or will it supercharge the unit?

    Thanks in advance
