* [[XBMC]] ('Apple TV OS' version 2.2 requires ATV USB Creator 0.3 and for you to update the XBMC/Boxee Launcher to 0.2 and then XBMC for Mac to have a completely successful install: http://xbmc.org/wiki/?title=XBMC_for_Mac_on_Apple_TV)
* [[ATVFiles]] sends Finder into an endless reboot loop.
+
* [[IScripts]] is working
**  Hint: don't re-run ATVFiles-1.1.1.run.sh after re-enabling ssh on an ATV 2.2. If you do happen to do this and you find that Finder is endlessly restarting, try downloading and running an older version such as [http://ericiii.net/sa/appletv/ATVFiles-1.0.take2a2.run ATVFiles-1.0.take2a2].  The older version will not enable ATVFiles but it will stop the endless restarting and you can access your regular ATV menus.

* [[Sapphire]] is working
** Might be good advice but I experinced the endless reboot on a clean install (factory restore 1.0, upgrade to 2.2, enable ssh, run ATVFiles installer)
+
* [[ATVFiles]] is working
* [[nitoTV]] is reported as working by some, but official word is that it's not for 2.2 (if it works, it will will work only to play mplayer titles / playlists, but not quicktime)
 
* [[XBMC]] (information from official site)

Questions & Answers

Q: How do I keep my hacked AppleTV from updating to OS 2.2?

A: See this link

Q: If I choose to update to OS 2.2 will it disable SSH access and blow away all the installed software (Sapphire, NitoTV, etc)?
