The Apple TV 4K’s lack of ports makes it harder to sideload apps to it than it is on the Apple TV 4. But fear not! We’ll show you how to get your favourite jailbreak and media apps onto your 4K device, without the luxury of Cydia Impactor.
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.
The Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.2-9.3.3 finally gives you a way to modify your device to your liking again on iOS 9.3.3 with your favorite jailbreak tweaks. Unfortunately, it’s not without its faults; it relies on a certificate, which means it has an expiration date and will need to be re-signed.
In this tutorial, we’ll talk about what you have to do to renew your iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak certificate when the time comes.
It’s been a while in the making, but it is now possible to install Kodi on tvOS. Granted, this is a very early tutorial, and Kodi for Apple TV 4 is still in the pre-pre-alpha stages, but it does work, although not perfectly yet.
Still, the fact that we can even get Kodi on the Apple TV without jailbreaking is a win in itself. In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to install Kodi on the new Apple TV running tvOS.
The developers of f.lux pulled their iOS app from their website in Thursday, no longer allowing people to sideload it. According to the developers, Apple informed them that because f.lux was using private APIs, it was in violation of the Developer Program Agreement. While other apps have been able to be sideloaded with no issue, including emulators and other products, f.lux is now gone as developers complied with Apple’s request.
The folks over at f.lux have released a sideloadable version of their popular utility for all iOS devices running iOS 9. The utility, which was once limited to jailbroken iPhones, can now be installed on any iOS 9 device, even the new iPad Pro, without a jailbreak.
f.lux is a utility that allows your iPhone to automatically adjust the screen temperature according to the time of day. It’s a utility that I use every day on my Mac, and it makes working on my computer in a dark environment much easier on my eyes. The same premise applies to iOS devices as well.
Would you be interested in using f.lux on your iPhone? Check out the full tutorial inside.
Now that sideloading is a possibility on both iOS and tvOS, it’s a good time to search for open source apps that are available to sideload. We’ve already showed you how to get apps like Provenance, MAME, Auntie Player, and others, but what about finding sideloadable apps on your own? In this post, I’ll show you how GitHub can be a valuable resource for finding open source apps for your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.
Last month, an open source app called Auntie Player was released to access on demand programs from the BBC. This app can be sideloaded on an Apple TV and used to watch BBC on demand content and even live content.
I tested out Auntie Player today, and it worked as expected. Keep in mind, however, that you’re supposed to be in the UK in order to properly access its content. There are ways to access BBC iPlayer outside of the UK, but we cannot endorse those methods.
Still, we understand that many of our UK-based readers would be interested in accessing BBC iPlayer on the Apple TV, so in this post we’re going to show you how.
Along with being able to play classic Nintendo and Sega games on your Apple TV, you can also play classic arcade titles. Doing so is made possible by a port of MAME, which stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. Unfortunately there isn’t yet a GitHub page setup for the MAME tvOS port, but the same developer that created the MAME emulator that we showed you a while back has made the full Xcode project available for download.
