FireCore has just announced that it is nearing completion of the next major version of its aTV Flash (black) software, 2.0. The suite adds tons of functionality to jailbroken Apple TVs.

Version 2.0 will bring about many changes, including an all-new menu layout, integrated search, and more. And if you’re interested, the team is currently taking applications for beta testers…

In addition to the aforementioned changes, V2 will also feature syncing, and enhanced content browsing. But other than that, we don’t know much. The devs are being pretty quiet.

They are, however, planning a short beta period before releasing 2.0 to the public. And are opening up beta spots to the public. Well, sort of. Interested folks can fill out this application to apply for a spot.

Obviously, you’ll need to jailbreak your Apple TV to use the new software. If you need help, we’ve got a step-by-step tutorial on how to do it. And if you’d like to download the current version of aTV Flash (black), you can find it on FireCore’s website for $29.99.

  • What I want is an sdk! I’d like to write apps in is or html5 for my apple tv. Like a snabnzb or utorrent app.

  • Any chance they are working on a break for 3rd Gen iTV with this also?

    • They don’t make the jailbreak , they use the one that works with iPhone/iPod/iPad. They put that in too there tool seasonpass… But because the ATV3 did not have the hole that the iPhone/iPod/iPad had for the last jailbreak it went with out…

    • Very unlikely, sadly there is not chance to get AT3 jailbroken 🙁

      Josh Hill said something about it a week ago. He’s good at finding boot room exploits. So the only thing he said for the consumer was to not update. I haven’t updated since the release of the ATV3 so hopefully this helps.
