Re: Can we jailbreak any ATV 1st gen

The reason I am on the hunt for something is that my dad wants one. He wants to watch football mainly. So if I got him an ATV 1 it would work great. He doesn't need mirroring or anything flash so ATV 1 would work great?

Thanks for your help

would work even better than atv2.

I run 1080p raw blueray on my atv1 with no issues (with crystal installed).

Mirroring/Airplay works as soon you install Remote HD.

XBMC with live channels runs with no issues.

I have 3 atv1 , and bought upgrade 3 atv2. Sold all atv2 as it is not better .

Now bought 3 atv3, waiting for miracle.... still have atv1

So .... it will work just gr8!

crystalbuntu is linux software .... Crystal HD is broadcom's hardware.

So I suspect you have linux version software installed and set to boot to xbmc not to Frontrow.

If you have Crystal HD card installed , so it goes to slot instead of wifi, that means you loose wireless for 1080p.
