It’s finally here! nitoTV, the “Cydia of Apple TV”, has just had its initial release. With a wide range of firmwares supported and a stable experience, it seems the tvOS jailbreak revolution has begun.
If you want to someday jailbreak your Apple TV 4, you’ll need to restore now to tvOS 11.1 and then block all software updates. This guide will show you how to block automatic updates, prevent it from downloading updates ready to install, and prevent update prompts appearing.
macOS Sierra 10.12.6, watchOS 3.2.3 and tvOS 10.2.2 are mostly bug-fix updates without new user-facing features, but you should install them anyway to improve the performance and security of your devices.
Apple just seeded the latest betas of the upcoming iOS 10.3.3 and tvOS 10.2.2 point updates. The new betas are available to registered developers and can be installed on devices used for development via the Software Update mechanism.
This guide will show you how to prevent the liberTV SSH client, Dropbear, from being periodically purged. We will move it from its default location in a temporary folder, to a permanent home on the filesystem, allowing it to be invoked without repeated setup in the future.
In this guide, we show you the simplest way to install the most recent version of Kodi to your Apple TV 4. This method uses the official build of Kodi, and does not rely on third-party distributions or knowledge of Xcode.
You no longer have to scroll through long lists on your Apple TV for minutes on end like an animal, courtesy of the latest firmware released yesterday alongside iOS 10.3, macOS Sierra 10.12.4 and watchOS 3.2.
It lets you scroll through longs lists with ease and contains other user-facing features and under-the-hood improvements. For instance, rented iTunes movies can be finally enjoyed on other devices.
And with the updated Remote app, you can control the set-top box via your iPad or other iOS device, browse your playlists and more. Be sure to watch Andrew’s hands-on video for everything new in tvOS 10.2 and share your favorite new feature in comments.
Your fourth-generation Apple TV just got a tad easier to use with a second major update to the set-top box’s operating system now available following tvOS 10’s debut last fall. The tvOS 10.2 software update (build 14W265) is now available on fourth-generation Apple TVs as a free over-an-air download in Settings → System → Software Updates.
