Got my apple TV 2 in the mail today, set it up with my netflix account, MLB and NBA sub and I jail broke it in order to install ice films since I can't seem to get hulu to work.

So far I cancelled my dish network service since I am getting movies and tv shows via netflix and ice films and I'm thinking of getting a mega video premium account for the ad on or hulu plus if I can get it working. Also local news are not a problem since I got an OTA antenna.

What other cool features can I add to my jailbroken apple TV?

Your options are basically XBMC, Plex, and ATV Flash in terms of major jailbreak software.

XBMC is arguably the most solid option with the best customization options, but sounds like you already have it if you have icefilms. I'd suggest researching further add-ons (they are numerous), and getting your media set up as an XBMC source.

Also, in terms of getting Hulu to work, someone posted this here a few days ago, worked perfectly for me:

I'm wondering if its best to just install xbmc or install atv flash and then xbmc?

I've had my ATV2 for a while now... I just recently ventured into jailbreaking it using seas0npass... I installed Plex and am loving it... XBMC for some reason was EXTREMELY slow and jittery, even the menus... idk why... but anyways with a few other programs that shall remain nameless I have all my favorite movies and tvshows within a couple hours of airing... I love it, but most importantly my wife loves it...
