FireCore has introduced aTV Flash (xmbc edition) and the release of aTV Flash (black) 2.5.
Introducing an all-new platform for running the latest XBMC version 13.2 (Gotham) on the original (silver) Apple TV – including support for the latest video add-ons, 1080p video, and more! aTV Flash (xbmc edition) is finely tuned, optimized for speed, and provides a complete replacement for the standard Apple TV software.
How does it work?
Installation is done in about 5 minutes using a USB flash drive. We’ve also built in a special restore option, so should the need ever arise the original Apple TV software can easily be reinstalled at any time.
Is this different from aTV Flash (silver)?
The original aTV Flash (silver) installs add-ons alongside the native Apple TV software, aTV Flash (xbmc edition) replaces the Apple TV software entirely. Each serves a different purpose, but if your main goal is to get XBMC on your Apple TV then aTV Flash (xbmc edition) is the one you want.
Does it play 1080p?
Yes. By installing a special 1080p video card, the original Apple TV will be fully capable of playing most 1080p formats. 1080p video cards are available as an optional add-on when ordering. Note: Installing a 1080p video card replaces the standard Apple TV Wi-Fi card. A directly connected ethernet cable or USB Wi-Fi adapter (also available as an optional add-on) will be required for network access.
