Apple TV 3.0.1 update

by tomek on November 9, 2009


In case you didn’t have enough fun hacking your boxes for 3.0 update, here it comes…another “revolutionary” update. Apple says it prevents content from temporarily disappearing. According to them, when you have to update to 3.0.1? “When you are using Apple TV software version 3.0 and all of your movies, TV shows, and songs appear to be missing” or “When you are using Apple TV software version 3.0 and all of your movies, TV shows, and songs appear to be present, but you have not yet updated to Apple TV software version 3.0.1.” Interesting… Wasn’t it easier with “Don’t think too much, update your box immediately!”…?

Official Apple instructions here.

– XBMC launched beta 3 of Launcher 3.2.
We can confirm now – it’s compatible with 3.0.1

– Boxee says it is already working in 3.0.1 (with Launcher 3.2 beta 3)
Also confirmed.

– nitoTV released 0.8.2 version with 3.0.1 support
(RSS, USB and watchdog patches updated for 3.0.1 as well)

– aTV Flash released 4.0.1 version with 3.0.1 compatibility.

You need to use LaunchMore version 0.4 or 0.4.1 to apply this update.

apple-tv-3-0-hacksIt took not more than a few days to get almost all the important hacks and plugins working in 3.0 update.




Released yesterday, 0.8.1 version (direct download) now supports 3.0 update.

nito says some features may have no chance of making it back in. Couchsurfer and RSS are not working, but they have restored the functionality for DVD, MPlayer, QuickTime, Weather, Network, download, installer and Application Launching sections.

Audio volume and sub toggling and resume returns in QuickTime playback! It is possible to turn off the volume control in General settings if this is not a desirable feature.

Guys warn things may be a little buggy from the OS transition.
