Plugins

Working

Not working

  • Sapphire (they are working on it)
  • ATVFiles sends Finder into an endless reboot loop.
    • 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 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.
    • 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)
  • External USB disk (Need verification on this Sublimespot 21:44, 10 October 2008 (CEST))

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)?

A: YES. If you want everything to work DO NOT UPGRADE (at least until the plugins you use have been updated).
