Xbmc updating atv2
Its still unknown whether this is a hardware or software restriction. Apple TV2: Connect via SSH in and run “apt-get update && apt-get install xbmc-atv2′” i OS: Upgrade through Cydia.The XBMC developers are hard at work on non-apple related features as well, expect a post in the next day or two outline what else we’ve been doing.
Update: A last-minute build-bug caused the SMB Live Essentials fix to be left out.If you have issues with any of the Nito installers then please try the command line instructions to see if that fixes the issue.Nito simply gives a GUI for those command line instructions, so it should work, but Team Kodi has no control over those installers and cannot update them or see any errors from them, or anything like that.Step 1: Install the newest stable version of XBMC – XBMC Frodo 12.3.If Frodo is already installed, go straight to Step 2. You now have the beta 3 of XBMC 13.0 Gotham installed on the Apple TV. No problem at all: it’s a lot simpler to uninstall than it is to install.I bought my ATV2 with XBMC pre loaded but I want to update to the latest version (primarily to see if it sures the HDMI handshake problem with my Yamaha receiver).
However, I am struggling to find out how to do this! Your ATV2 will get extremely hot, implode and never function correctly ever again...
Edit: although unfirtunately it has not fixed the handshake issue beyween my ATV and Yamaha receiver No, there is no Nito TV.
NOTICE: While this should work in theory, the official installation method for Kodi is to use the command line instructions.
From a developer’s point of view the Apple TV2 is a major challenge because Apple never released any Software Development Kit for it.
The fact that XBMC/Kodi has ever been able to run on it is a testament to the countless hours of hacking by Scott Davilla and Edgar Huceke.
Maintaining the Apple TV2 for XBMC/Kodi became more and more demanding each time Apple decided to update the Apple TV2′s i OS Version.
