From MacRumors comments (see external link):

  • "The update has now enabled the use of the on-screen iPhone keyboard for text input on the ATV!" (didn't this already work?)
  • "You'll need to plug your patchstick back in, reboot, wait for the patchstick to install Launcher, reboot again, then update Launcher and Boxee to the latest releases (Boxee just put out a new release last night too)."


Confirmed working in 2.4:

  • NitoTV Take 2 0.7.6+
  • Boxee (updated version for 2.4, don't know version number)
    • Boxee Twitter feed - "if you upgraded your Apple TV to 2.4: run patchstick again, update launcher, download latest boxee and you'll be back boxeeing"
  • LaunchMore (install using PatchStickBuilder)
  • please add your experiences here...
