A l-o-n-g t-i-m-e a-g-o, I suggested maybe FireCore was promoting vaporware because it was promising their software will be compatible with the version 3 AppleTV and if you buy the version compatible with the 2nd gen AppleTV, you would be able to upgrade at no extra charge when the ver 3 software that would work with AppleTV emerges. I got a huge amount of criticism for that and was voted down many times. (I can guess by whom and for what reason!) Now how many years have passed? The very minor functional upgrades like "New! Croatian localizations" and "New! Improved metadata fetching"? FireCore used to even advertise the words "COMING SOON!" but they took that down, I suppose they were concerned about legal difficulties. Some said, "But FireCore can't do it without the JB!" The answer, again, is why is the developer promising something over which they have no control and they're not offering to do a JB of their own. Anyone who shells out $30 for this , hoping one day to actually use it with hardware that isn't 4 or 5 years old is, well, they probably voted for Mamma Grizzly.

Overall I'm satisfied with aTVFlash but now I'm at a point where I have to extend my 'subscription' for yet another 30 bucks. No discount or anything for existing customers, and I have to admit I'm annoyed by this business model. I would drop aTVFlash instantly because of this and run to a suitable competitor when it does show up on the market, surely this isn't the business objective of aTVFlash I presume.

while this app is excellent for most 2nd gen apple tv people....the question still remains: where's the JB for 3rd gen apple tv? ....

Several more months pass and neither FireCore nor anyone else can produce a JB that will allow ATV Flash (black) to work with the 3 gen Apple TVs. Seems my predictions were correct and even my critics who backed up FireCore have fallen silent. If I accomplished nothing else, my vocal criticism might have persuaded FC to take the deceptive promise, "Coming soon!", off their website. They will not (and probably cannot) produce software that will work with the 3 gen AppleTVs.

Sorry, but installing FC results in pure stress. And when you finally have it, you cannot install Media Player etc. on 10.7.

The latest version of the Evasion jailbreak didn't even attempt to jb the AppleTV. Firecore promised on its website ("Coming Soon!") that a version of aTV Flash that works with the 3rd Generation was forthcoming even though they're not the ones making the jailbreak. I don't care if the entire staff of Firecore votes me down for speaking the truth, but nothing changes the fact that aTV Flash is useless for any AppleTV preceding Gen 2. (Incidentally, the next version of iOS (6.1.3 version 2 beta) breaks Evasion. I feel sorry for all the peeps with a 3 gen AppleTV who bought aTV Flash in advance, expecting the imminent release of a version of the software that would work for them. It's not as if Firecore didn't lead them on, small print caveats notwithstanding.

IMO the best for jailbreak AppleTV2. Now I wish we could do the same to the 3th gen ATV.

NewsFlash: aTV Flash Black 2.1 has just been released. The folks at FireCore have been promising ("Coming soon!") an update to this utility that would work with the 3rd Generation AppleTV. The truth is that the developer cannot--or never intended--to produce a version of ATV Flash that could work with the 3rd generation AppleTV, despite all their promises. I think they lied to us to make more money and a lot of customers are screwed. Someone should bring a class-action lawsuit against LiarCore.

This software is the best. It took the Apple TV and made it worth having. I was not a fan of being locked into either buying all my movies from the iTunes Store or having to add all my movies to iTunes. I have a large (very large) library and I gave up on storing everything in iTunes a couple of years ago. It is just to bloated and lacking in features. iTunes is fine for music and movies at my desktop (even though I'd rather use VLC or Movist). I was just about to dump my old ATV when I bought aTV Flash and I just bought my second ATV. It adds navigation features, add on apps and streams from my network drive with all ease. In the beginning updating was not so intuitive but that has changed especially with the wireless updates. This well worth the price and they have a generous upgrade policy. My only complaint is that they have not released the program for the new 1080p ATV yet. I think this is because they are waiting on iOS 6 but while anxious I can't withhold from my review because of that.

I hope it's ok to ask for features here. What would help me that don't live in sweden is the ability to connect directly to a VPN from the apple TV iOS it self. I'm doing it with my iPhone so wouldn't it be possible for the Apple TV to do so too?.. with a little help from your overcharged brains! :) B.R.

This is an excellent piece of software of professional quality..It does at least what it says on the tin, maybe even more! Customer support is also a strong point, since a few quirks and bugs are squashed over continuous software updates that are rolled out on a steady basis... ...overall couldn't be happier! If only there was a way to install small apps on AppleTV on top of this polished Apple-like interface, this would have been a 5-star rating..

Well, I cannot see any advantages from aTV Flash to the combination of nitoTV and XBMC - only those two are for free, zero bucks. This manual here guided me to the same features without paying 30$: http://pc.de/web/apple-jailbreak-xbmc-3038 (german only, google for english version)

Until they add the ability to play HTML 5 replacement videos for Flash content, ala ClickToFlash, the Couch Surfer component is severely lacking...

One of the really good aspects of this app is that the jailbreaking and installation instructions are well written with plenty of screenshots. If you have some apprehension about the process check out the guide. The app itself is is exactly as described so there are no surprises. All in all a good experience.

Doesn't mention, but I assume this offer is for one year of updates for aTV flash? FireCore has mentioned in several places that the full pricing on their website now, $29 for one year, et all is just a pre-release price. So before I get locked into this product, can I assume that in December 2012 I'll be paying a lot higher price to renew ? What happens if Apple TV 3 is released in say march 2012. Will my license transfer? Everyone expects the only difference to be the A5 processor. Which might end up being a challenge to jailbreak anyways.

aTV Flash works like a charm, but I've had nothing but trouble with subtitles so far. It simply doesn't detect separate subtitle files although they have the exact same file name as the movie and the subtitle files are in the same folder as the movie. The same applies to dvd's (either as .iso files or .vob files). Hopefully it will de fixed soon, but again apart from that it works as advertised for me.

Works great. Jailbreaking with Seas0nPass is super easy and aTV Flash (black) installs wirelessly. Love being able to finally playback all of my HD MKVs that are stored on my network drives.

I just got an offer from FireCore to extend my subscription for $29, I payed them for this last year as well. And now I see they sell it for $19 here. It seems they are not big fans of their own customers. The software itself is quite good, it makes the apple TV very much better. You can watch moveis from the filesystem on your macs and pc's, and it has a lot of other functions as well. But it does tend to crash a bit too often, and the jailbreak procedure is not something I would recommend to anyone without a special interest for this sort of thing. But if you are willing to jailbreak your apple TV, it is very nice indeed

Been watching it for quite some time now. Looks pretty awesome and gets better (at a slow speed though). I'd buy it. No doubt. But won't just do it yet. A jailbreak is required and anything less than an untethered jailbreak is not for me. One power outage or pulling a plug and I'll have to connect my ATV2 to my computer to boot it. Not cool. Maybe Seas0nPass will be updated in the near future. Or maybe Firecore should release their own jailbreaking tools (untethered) if their software that they hope to make money from requires jailbreaking your ATV. Anyways it's seems like a good piece of work. Will buy it as soon as that untethered JB is out and working.
