    Hi there,

    Just looking for some "top reasons" why i should jailbreak my newly purchased ATV 4.

    I would love playing some SNES/MAME/SEGA games on it, maybe use KODI etc...
    I don't have "developer" license (if that matters), and not intended to purchase one.

    Thanks!
    :)

    Not really necessary, more trouble than it's worth.

    If you like all that, safe the trouble and get a Raspberry Pi 3 with Recalbox, OSMC .... at least for Emu and KODI

    Maybe it's because I don't have a Raspberry Pi and don't know much about them but that sounds......more complicated to say the least. :D

    actually it's quite simple. If you want KODI just get a Raspi 3 with power supply and sdcard. Download the OSMC Image and copy the files to the sdcard. Plug the card into the Pi 3 and start it...
    btw there is a new Vero 3 in the OSMC Store, which will handle 4K material, maybe this is the device you really need :)
