FireCore releases aTV Flash (black) 2.0 for jailbroken Apple TVs

By , Sep 11, 2012

Back in August, we reported that FireCore was working on a major update for its aTV Flash (black) application. The software enables jailbroken Apple TVs to perform a wide range of additional tasks.

Well, today, FireCore released that update in the form of aTV Flash (black) 2.0. It features a new library view, which makes browsing through your content easier than ever before, and much more…

From the aTV Flash (black) 2.0 change log:

  • Added all-new Library View
  • Added integrated media search
  • Added trakt.tv 2-way syncing
  • Added Last.fm scrobbling
  • Added genre/artist based playlists
  • Added Recently Added display option
  • Improved handling of WTV files
  • Improved handling of DVD audio tracks
  • Improved AFP connections
  • Improved filename recognition
  • Improved subtitle handling
  • Resolved various navigation issues
  • Resolved rare DVD playback issues
  • Resolved rare subtitles positioning issue
  • Many other minor improvements and fixes

The new Library View looks great, as does the integrated media search. Together, they make it a lot easier to browse through content by variables, including genre, or to find something specific.

Also not to be overlooked is the addition of trakt.tv syncing. Essentially, this makes it so that when you start a movie or TV show on one Apple TV, its status is automatically synced with other units.

The good news is, the 2.0 update is free for current aTV Flash (black) owners. Just pop into the app’s Maintenance menu. And if you don’t have it already, you can grab it for just $29.95.

Remember, this is only compatible with second-generation Apple TVs, as the new one has not been jailbroken yet.

    It’s no wonder ATV 2’s are selling for 3 times their value ($300 + range) online.
