2G Apple TV hack tool goes public
aTV Flash beta released
FireCore has issued the first beta release of its second-generation Apple TV hacking tool, aTV Flash.
Dubbed aTV Flash (black), the tool opens up the Apple TV to install extra apps and remote access tools.
The beta release slots in a web browser, Last.fm support, a Plex client and an Apple TV-hosted updater.
FireCore charges $20 (£13) for this, though it'll go up to $30 (£19) when aTV Flash (black) is completed.
Of course, enterprising hackers can save themselves the cash and do the job themselves using reaily available tricks and tools - take a look at Awkward TV first. ®
Another brick missing from the walled garden
It must be comforting for the early adopters of Apple products that even they are somewhat neglected by Apple, at least the modders have kept them in mind.
Another headache for Steve, baby. Another step for freedom of iPhans.
