Hacker Troughton-Smith and Nick (@TheMudkip) has come up with a hack to install iOS on Apple TV to run jailbroken apps with full resolution. Yes, you will now be able to take benefit of your favourite apps on full Apple TV screens.
To install iOS on Apple TV the hackers have rewritten the code of Springboard and iOS launcher on jailbroken Apple TV. They have managed to install and run many apps including Facebook, FaceTime, YouTube, Grace applications on Apple TV with the capability to run multiple apps side-by-side on the same screen. Here is a demo video released by them to show their work.
Earlier, the similar concept of running apps side-by-side on a same screen was showed at as WWDC 2011 on an iPad. Instead running it bigger screens of Apple TV will make a much better and useful. Though the feature has no official release plans but the users who believe the advantage of jailbreaking will definitely can get it.
Currently, the apps have slow refresh rate, semi sluggish response with low resolution on Apple TV, which are not smooth as they are on iPad. The tweak is not ready for a public release but Smith and Nick are working on it to make more apps to work on it with a public release. Check out some more images posted by the hackers here:
