I just recently came across an ATV1 and theres not a gadget I own that I haven’t hacked. So I want to make sure I have read everything correctly.
What I’ve gathered:
Can hack Apple TV OS with aTV Flash - most apps are out of date and not useful - (XBMC v11)
Can install a linux distro - OSMC/OpenELEC/aTV Flash (Kodi) - (Kodi v17.x/XBMC v13.2/Kodi v15.2)
CyrstalHD doesn’t work on v17.x, so use the January (v16.x) build
If CrystalHD is installed there is no wifi
OSMC v16.x seems to be the best option?
Can I insert a cheap USB 2.0 hub and add the WiFi/Bluetooth adapters from the OSMC store for full support?
If I install the USB build of OSMC, can I leave it plugged in and boot to the normal Apple TV OS?
If no, is there a way to dual boot the drive, as I don’t want to lose the original OS
Do the Wifi/CrystalHD adapters work in Apple TV OS?
Thanks in advance and thanks for the hard work that I found 10 years later
