How to Access Your Apple TV’s File System With CyberDuck

Yesterday we showed you folks how to SSH into your jailbroken Apple TV2 through your desktop OS’ command line prompt. Today we are going to show you how to create a connection with your hacked Apple TV2 in a much more user friendly way.

All you need is CyberDuck for Mac or Windows, and your Apple TV’s IP Address. Of course you’ll also need a jailbroken Apple TV2, and both it and your computer must be on the same Wi-Fi network. For those new to the game, you can find your IP in your Apple TV2’s main menu, Settings > General > Network > IP Address.

Once CyberDuck is done downloading, fire it up. Your going to want to choose to create a new connection.

From the drop down menu, select SFTP. In the Server field type your IP Address that we had you get earlier.

In the Username section type root and for the password, type alpine.

Then just click Connect.

You should now be looking at your Apple TV’s root directory. Besides the ability to view your ATV2’s folder sub system, you also have write privileges. This is one way to install Plex or Firecore’s ATV Flash.
