Apple TV 2: Update To Kodi (XBMC) v.14

Assuming that your Apple TV 2 is jailbroken, you can install Kodi media player on your jail broke device.

For those that have an existing copy of XBMC on their Apple TV 2, i suggest completely removing XBMC along with dependencies and settings and installing a fresh copy of Kodi.

At the time of this writing, I’m only aware of the use of Terminal on OS X to install Kodi. So here’s how we’re going to update Kodi on Apple TV 2:

  1. Uninstall XBMC
  2. Uninstall XBMC dependencies
  3. Uninstall XBMC settings
  4. Install Kodi


Uninstall XBMC via Terminal

apt-get remove org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

It will if you want to continue

The following packages will be REMOVED:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 5 not upgraded.
After this operation, 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?


Uninstall XBMC Settings

rm -Rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC


Uninstall XBMC Dependencies

apt-get remove org.xbmc.xbmc-seatbeltunlock && apt-get remove gawk && apt-get remove bsdiff


Install Kodi

1. SSH into your Apple TV 2


2. You will be prompted for a password, default password is alpine

3. Continue to enter the following commands

apt-get install wget

wget -O- http://apt.awkwardtv.org/awkwardtv.pub | apt-key add -

echo "deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org/ stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

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