I think you may be confused, you can have any jailbreak you want either tethered or untethered, once you have it jailbroken you can SSH into your apple tv and then you can install xbmc via the ssh terminal.

Installing XBMC is just a matter of using SSH to connect to the newly jailbroken ATV2 to download and install the software. Here are the instructions from the XBMC team:

ssh root@128.9.9.9 (fill in your own ATV IP address)

When prompted for your password, enter ‘alpine’ if you haven’t changed it. Now you’ll want to install the XBMC software, execute each of these commands independently:

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

Next use apt-get:

apt-get update

And finally, install the software:

apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

When XBMC has completed installing, your AppleTV’s built-in media manager FrontRow will restart itself and you will see XBMC in the list of options, just select it to launch XBMC.

Resurrecting an old thread....

I'm getting this error when trying to install XBMC via the following command:

apt-get update

E: The method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/htp could not be found.

Any ideas?

I would think the servers might be overloaded, another user in another forum was having the same problem and tried again later and it worked.

OK, just restored again - will give it a shot a little later.

Thanks for the info.
