aTV Flash updated to version 4.5 for original Apple TV

FireCore's popular aTV Flash software for jailbroken Apple TV's has just been updated to add even more features for first generation Apple TV users. If you have a jailbroken Apple TV, aTV Flash is definitely an add-on package you'll want to check out.

For those not familiar with FireCore or aTV Flash, it's basically a software suite that will run on a jailbroken Apple TV and add a ton of additional functionality such as playing movie formats other than iTunes, surfing the web, creating playlists and more. While this update is specific to the original Apple TV, there is also software available for newer Apple TV models as well.

The 4.5 update in particular brings with it Mountain Lion support and more.

  • Added support for OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
  • Added active memory management (to keep things running smoothly)
  • Added ability to copy files between playlists
  • Resolved Smart Installer bug
  • Other miscellaneous improvements and fixes

If you don't already have aTV Flash, you can purchase it for a one time fee of $39.95. If you've already got it you can update straight from your Apple TV by choosing Maintenance and then going to the manage plugins menu. Hit the link below to find out more and to purchase aTV Flash.
