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:
- Uninstall XBMC
- Uninstall XBMC dependencies
- Uninstall XBMC settings
- Install Kodi
