XBMC Ported to iOS Devices

XBMC is now available for iPhone 4 and iPad and AppleTV 2

Now you may be wondering “annndd what is this?”

XBMC is a Media Center (not a remote)

What XBMC does is pretty simple, it loads videos, pictures, music, programs (not sure what kind), weather, etc on to your iPhone, iPad, and AppleTV 2.

If you’d like to give this a try then jump over to Cydia on your iphone/ipad and add this repo

http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/ios/

If you have an Apple TV 2 an would love to give this a wack you will need to be able to SSH into it.

Heres what you enter after you have successfully entered SHH.

$ ssh root@ATV2 IP address>

root@'s password: ''enter your password here, it should be "alpine" if you haven't changed it''

$ echo "deb http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/atv2 ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list

$ apt-get update

$ apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

After it has installed and rebooted you should see it on the screen.

Requirments

-MUST be jailbroken 4.1/4.2.1
