    aTV Flash (black 2.0 Released For Apple TV Jailbreakers With New Library View, Search

    Meet your new and improved jailbroken Apple TV.


    FireCore today released aTV Flash (black) 2.0, the highly-anticipated update to its flagship software for the jailbroken Apple TV. Version 2.0 brings a number of enhancements, including a Library View for browsing media content by category (TV, movie, etc.), integrated search, and trakt.tv support for keeping content wirelessly synced between multiple Apple TVs.

    Sadly, aTV Flash (black) still doesn’t support the third-gen Apple TV, as a jailbreak for Apple’s latest set-top box has not yet been released. But second-gen Apple TV owners can grab today’s 2.0 update now.

    From FireCore:

    We are pleased to announce the release aTV Flash (black) 2.0 for the 2nd generation Apple TV. Version 2.0 goes beyond just watching videos, and adds in a ton of new features that make browsing and watching media on the Apple TV more enjoyable that ever.

    Once an Apple TV is jailbroken, software like aTV Flash (black) is installed to enhance the experience. The default Apple TV interface isn’t bad, but aTV Flash (black) makes it so much better. For starters, you can play all kinds of video formats that aren’t supported in iTunes. What FireCore announced today only makes aTV Flash (black) an even more compelling purchase.

    The main improvement is the new Library View. FireCore explains:

    The new Library View will now index all your media (even if stored on multiple devices) and automatically organize movies, TV shows and music into easy to use categories such as: genre, release date, star rating, age rating and others. TV shows will also be group by series/season automatically so there’s no more worrying about keeping your folders perfectly organized.

    While we think this is a great new way to browse and enjoy your media, the original file/folder based browsing will remain intact and working as an alternative option.









    There are also detailed instructions available for setting up a network attached media server and the Library View.

    With the new aTV Flash (black) you can also search for videos stored anywhere on the Apple TV or in an attached network device. By integrating with trakt.tv, video playback can be wirelessly synced between multiple Apple TVs. If you watch a movie on the living room Apple TV, the bedroom Apple TV will show it as watched. There’s also Last.fm scrobbling for music playback.






    Full changelog:

    Added all-new Library View
    Added integrated media search
    Added trakt.tv 2-way syncing
    Added Last.fm scrobbling
    Added genre/artist based playlists

    Improved AFP connections

    Improved subtitle handling
    Resolved various navigation issues

    Many other minor improvements and fixes
    aTV Flash (black) costs $30, but it’s well worth it if you jailbreak your Apple TV. Today’s update is available for free to existing users under the Maintenance > Manage Extras menu.

    We will hopefully have some news on the third-gen Apple TV jailbreak in the coming weeks.
