Apple TV Mods Available for Apple TV 2

Apple TV 2 is the most popular Apple product when it comes to its line of Apple TVs. Since the first moment when Apple TV was released until today, the company has tried to bring many improvements to its products. Well, sometimes Apple’s plans have not had the desired impact on the market. At least, this seems to be the case for Apple TV 3. Apple TV 3 is currently less popular than its previous TV generation and it looks like this happens only because there is no jailbreaking possibility available for this product, at least not yet.

The fact that Apple TV mods are available for the second generation devices makes this product extremely popular at the moment. What does this mean? Well, an Apple TV is a highly advanced product. However, most clients are unhappy with the fact that this product comes with certain limitations. This means that Apple features restrictions that make it impossible for clients to install certain applications on their device. Naturally, this means that some are unhappy with the fact that they can only customize their device in certain limits. Naturally, Apple TV mods achieved an enhanced popularity.

Through jailbreaking, owners will actually break free from Apple’s limits and the rules the company has on its products. Jailbreaking actually means access to some features that would otherwise be inaccessible to clients of Apple. Changes made to the main menu, setting changes but also access to fully controlling the Apple TV and its operating system can only be obtained through jailbreaking. Access to CBS, ABC, MTV, Plex and much more, can also be achieved this way.

Secure and functional jailbreaking possibilities are currently available for Apple TV 2. Unfortunately for owners of Apple TV 3 seeking for such an opportunity, we cannot say the same thing. However, it is claimed that the jailbreak community will finally find a way to break into Apple’s system. Apple TV hacks aim to make usage better and to enhance the whole Apple TV experience. Some claim that it actually is a pity that these devices are so great, if access is so limited.

Everyone owning an Apple TV was extremely happy last summer when a new hack made Plex available on non-jailbroken devices. Well, the happiness did not last for long, as soon Apple issued an update which made Plex once again impossible to use on devices that have not been jailbroken. Jailbreaking is the process through which a device’s system is modified with the purpose to make all types of apps accessible to anyone owning an Apple device. Normally, Apple has many limitations when it comes to its TVs, which are naturally associated to all the devices that the company has released until today. 

While some people purchase Apple TVs just because there are available certain jailbreaking possibilities for those devices, other individuals prefer to keep their TV intact. In this context it is important to mention that Apple is never happy with jailbreaking, even though this is something 100 percent legal.

This is exactly what happened with PlexConnect, a hack released earlier this summer, which made Plex available on all devices, with no need to jailbreak first. Naturally, soon after the release of this app, Apple updated its system and Plex stopped worked. Of course, PlexConnect received an update, as well, to continue to work on Apple TV 2 and Apple TV 3, even though they are still non-jailbroken devices. So, now it is still available for usage on Apple TV devices. 

Plex has been available for years on devices by Samsung and Roku. Apple products are not compatible with this popular program, making it very hard for owners of Apple TV to access Plex. In fact, Plex is one of the main reasons why many people owning an Apple TV decide to have it jailbroken. With PlexConnect owning Plex on Apple TV 2 and Apple TV 3 might be simpler.

Installing PlexConnect actually is extremely easy and it will make your whole Apple TV experience much better. PlexConnect makes jailbreaking unnecessary for people who want to keep their Apple device intact.

AllCast New App for Android Available now on Apple TV and Roku

The app became known as AirCast or AllCast, allowing users to stream local video and audio content to Chromecast, from the device’s gallery, Dropbox or Google Drive, the whole process becoming simpler and more direct. Google was not happy at all with the new app, which was blocked several times. Still, its developer, Koushik Dutta, managed to find the way to improve his app, which is now available for many devices. Koushik Dutta is well known as the developer of ClockwordMod.

However, once the application is on your device, you will discover that a new button appears in the corner of all open videos and photos. The app is really functional and extremely impressive, but it has a major limitation. AllCast will not support videos from streaming services. Only content from Dropbox and Google Drive is supported and can be handled by this new app. This actually is considered to be the main disadvantage of this application. 

If you want to test the beta version of the AllCast app, you will have to join the ClockworkMod Beta Testers community on Google +, then you can download the app from Google Play Store. AllCast is thought to have initially been written for Chromecast. The new beta application comes at this moment, as the older beta version is going to expire soon.

Many people would love to have Plex on their Apple TV, without jailbreaking. Well, it seems that there is a simple way to achieve this purpose. A new hack created by Plex users, known as PlexConnect, allows users to access the popular media server software, without having to jailbreak the device first. Until now, an update released by Apple broke PlexConnect, which was also updated to still be functional for users.
 
Naturally, Apple may release more updates in the near future, which may disable PlexConnect, but probably the Plex community will find a way to make the program work once again.

This means that the process is both simple and fast. The hack comes with an install guide, to make it even easier for users to run it on their devices. 

The popularity of PlexConnect has increased among Apple TV owners who don’t want to jailbreak their devices, but want to access Plex and all its benefits. However, there are many reasons why people want to jailbreak their Apple TV and the Plex plugins are surely among the most important ones.

Apple TV Software Refresh: New Update Announced in September

Fans of Apple TV devices were surely pleased to find out that the company updated their Apple TV 6.0. In September, Apple re-released version 6.0 on the software used by this device. The device comes with a new feature, which has actually been rumored for several months: automatic setup from an iOS device. 

What does the software refresh bring? It seems that the new update offers users the possibility to configure the set-top box’s Wi-Fi password, the language and format preferences, as well as the iTunes Store account as simply as connecting the iOS device to the Apple TV. However, for this process to be successful users need to possess an iOS device that runs on iOS 7, as well as a new version of iPad, iPad mini or iPhone. 

Apple ensures users that touching the two devices is simple and the whole process is more user friendly than what customers had to deal with until this new update. However, some clients have met a series of errors when installing the new update. Critical errors were actually reported by many clients, indicating that the update came with a series of issues.

A jailbreak has been released for each of the Apple TV updates that were launched until today, even though we cannot say the same thing for Apple TV 3. At the beginning of October it has been claimed that a 100 percent functional Apple TV 3 jailbreak has been launched, but it seems that there is more work that has to be done until the version will be stable and usable for all clients to access easily.

Apple TV mods are available for Apple TV 2. In fact, this is considered to be one of the main reasons why Apple TV second generation is actually more popular than the newest release of the company. Why is jailbreaking so common among Apple TV users? Well, it seems that the answer to this question actually lies in the numerous benefits that jailbreaking has. Jailbreaking allows users to add certain features to the main menu, change settings, access all the apps they want and gain full control over the device and its operating system.

XBMC includes other plugins, too, as well as beautiful custom themes. This means that users will actually be able to completely change the way their Apple TV looks like and the way they imagined they will be able to use the device when it was first released. 

Jailbreaking is the process through which you will gain root access to your device and you will be able to get full control and freedom on accessing its operating system. Third applications will become available for users to access and in fact users can make their device perfect according to their needs.
Apple TV commonly has a limited number of channels, features and apps that can work. Apple does not allow third part apps to be installed on the device, this is where jailbreaking comes in.

Apple TV iOS 7 Rumors


The fact that Apple TV might be updated has been rumored for several months now. In fact, when iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were released everyone expected to see a new update for the Apple TV, too. However, the company made no official announcements on this matter, which made it simpler for rumors to occur on the potential release of a new Apple TV. 

 
Rumors on Apple’s intentions to release an important hardware update have first occurred during the summer. However, these rumors became even more intense in September, when various reports stated that Apple will most likely bring certain iOS 7 updates to Apple TV. However, until today the company made no official statements that can reveal such intentions. 

The latest version of Apple TV released until today is Apple TV 3. The device currently is less popular on the market compared to its previous version, even though it features many updates. Specialists explain this reality through the fact that Apple has managed to keep their Apple TV 3 away from jailbreaking, which in fact makes the previous jailbroken version more popular than the last update. Some specialists say that this is one of the reasons why Apple has not released its new Apple TV, waiting for sales to grow for Apple TV 3. However, jailbreaking attempts for this latest version have reached no results in defeating Apple’s security system. 

The new Apple TV iOS 7 that is currently rumored is said to bring more freedom to users, who will be able to enjoy a new usability of their device. However, maybe October will bring more information on this subject, as it is claimed that during the event Apple has scheduled for his month, new releases will be revealed. Apple TV 4 and the next iPad and iPad Mini are believed to be announced at this event.

However, people interested in using Apple TV should find out that an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak version is already available for use. This is compatible with Apple TV 2. Probably, this is one of the reasons why Apple TV 2 has become so popular. 

The Apple TV iOS 5 jailbreak untethered version was actually released during the summer of 2012, only a few months after the release of Apple TV 2. Why do customers still prefer this version of Apple TV? It seems that the reason why people prefer Apple TV 2 is actually linked to the possibility of jailbreaking. Jailbreaking is the process through which the iOS system that Apple TV 2 has is modified to access applications that would normally be incompatible with it

Well, along with the updates of Apple, updated versions for jailbreaking have also been released. One of the most popular jailbreaking tools at moment is considered to be SeasOnPass, which has actually provided an updated version for 5.2.1 iOS, too

Why jailbreaking? It seems that people nowadays prefer Apple TV 2 to the third generation, which is more functional and actually cheaper, due to the jailbreaking possibility.

The 3rd generation Apple TV was released this year, in March. The 2nd generation has been jailbroken, so users can enjoy freedom and full control when accessing it. Despite the impressive restrictions that Apple released along with its 2nd generation device, jailbreaking still became possible. Probably, this will soon happen in the case of Apple TV 3.
