How may we be YOUR site?

by editor @ on June 22, 2007

We need some suggestions here. Some people say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. That maybe true but we’d like to hear from YOU what you would like to change on the site. What new features would you like? Should we change the look of the site? Are there things that you don’t like on our site now that you would like us to change? Should we charge for downloading hacks? (ha! just wanted see if you were paying attention!!!)

Help us be YOUR site. We are all ears.

Has the 1.1 update been good to your hacked Apple TV?

by editor @ on June 21, 2007

By now, you should already know about the version 1.1 software update for the Apple TV. We’re sure that most of you probably rushed to install it and are enjoying those pixelated videos on YouTube already.

BUT, did it break any of your hacks? Let us know what your experience has been with it. We heard a couple of reports on it breaking some hacks. So we are very curious to know. Do tell, do tell.

$1000 USB Bounty: we may have a winner…

by editor @ on June 20, 2007

We are excited!!! We are currently testing an entry sent in by someone from University of Chicago for the USB Bounty that we started a couple of months ago. Hopefully, this is it.

Unlike the hack to boot Apple TV from an external USB drive that is widely available. This USB bounty calls for an external USB drive to be hooked up and used as primary storage – but not to be booted from.

Once we have verified the entry, we will make the announcement (hopefully, in a couple of days) and make the patch available.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Apple to supply free ‘software features and enhancements’

by editor @ on April 26, 2007

AppleTVHacks recently pondered when we might see some Apple TV plugin goodness from Apple itself. Well, Apple have now confirmed that they plan to do exactly that.

Apple’s CFO, Peter Oppenheimer, said yesterday in a call with financial analysts, “… we plan to periodically provide new software features and enhancements, at no charge, to our Apple TV customers.”

There is no word on when we might see the first such additions, what exactly they’ll entail, and whether there will be any interface for selecting which new features you get. However, it is certainly an exciting first step and we are looking forward to seeing what these updates provide.
