Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter shown off

Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter

Looks like Apple TV (2010) can indeed be Jailbroken via the SHAtter exploit just like any other iOS 4.x device to date. Keep in mind the image above is just a tease and the Jailbreak hasn't been packaged for the masses yet, nor have we heard of any Apple TV-centric Jailbreak apps or extensions yet, but we can dream, right?

What's on top of your list? Xvid and MKV streaming? Hulu Plus? Safari web browser? Let us know here or in our brand spanking new Apple TV Forum.

I received mine last night and have not spent a great deal of time with it but Hulu Plus & Safari web would be nice. Would have been nice to be able to plug my external drive directly to the box.

It would be nice to see slingplayer do some updates to support this along with the iPad and ios4 but I won't hold my breath

mcnooberson says:

Safari web browser on the big screen would be nice :)

aaron says:

Safari would be good. Or anything that lets me watch shows w/o paying .99cent lol

Taco50 says:

I'd be interested in a jailbreak that let's you watch shows for free

mark1965 says:

MKV from external.
Why wouldn't this be done out of the box. I just don't understand it.
Guess it's Roku

Benji says:

Can an external hardrive be hooked up via the USB in the back? Is there Bluetooth on it or not??

Tis says:

No bluetooth but an air sever app would bundle well.

macharborguy says:

@aaron: you'll pay $99 for the AppleTV and then hack it, potentially killing the warranty, yet you have a problem paying $0.99 on a rental?

Stephen says:

I want it to play all popular formats from a USB drive. Safari would come in 2nd.

NETFLIX, and Standard HULU (not Plus), which would require a Safari Browser. OR just an app to provide VeeBeam functionality, wirelessly pull anything off my MacBook.
