The Apple TV 1st Generation Jailbreak is unaffected by the recent Apple software signing issues and is gloriously untethered.

The Apple TV One now runs on OPENELEC LINUX - faster than an Apple TV2, and much much cheaper.

openelec apple tv 1 Give Your Apple TV 1 New Life With OpenElec 2.0 (installing XBMC)

Running OPENELEC LINUX instead of the old Apple firmware you can play any media file up to 1080p.

The Apple TV1 will come with everything pre-inatalled by me, you just need to plug it in and connect to your router using wifi OR an ethernet cable.

For a range of Jailbroken Apple TV2s to suit all pockets, in my eBay Shop: Apple TV Wizard

This is the most frequently copied Apple TV2 advert on eBay - and there must be a reason for that.

Some sellers make a big hoo-har about their ATVs being exclusive, different, better, having more addons, but it's all hot air.

It's configured just the same, with all the available add-ons properly and fully installed.

I use the XBMCHUB Wizard too, it's not exclusive, but you have to install some elements of the rival XBMCTALK Wizard or you don't get Mashup, FilmOn and other interesting add-ons.

Latest XMBC 12.2 "FRODO" loaded with every add-on available.  There's nothing you have to install to make it work.

Everything loaded and watchable in XBMC for FREE:

Hundreds of thousands of Movies, Adult Channels, Loads of Sports in SportsDevil for all the live Saturday afternoon kick-offs ;)

NitoTV, BBC iPlayer, itvPLAYER, Icefilms, 1Channel,
and Navi-X - newest 3.7.8 - for movies, live TV and Sports - loads of other stuff: too much to list.

For Sports or movies fans it's got the lot.

And all the add-ons will auto-update so there is nothing you'll need how to learn to do.

If you need advice to set it up I'm very patient and happy to help (please see my feedback).

If you'd like Chinese films and TV channels, or Indian TV and Bollywood movies, or want Arabic, Greek, Turkish, or Israeli TV and movies, just give me a shout.

The Apple TV is in good condition, comes with an Apple White Remote, UK power lead, but might not come in the Apple TV original box (boxed ones are very rare).

And it even has FREE NEXT DAY DELIVERY BY Royal Mail Special Delivery to your door! 

Special Delivery comes with insurance to the full replacement cost of the item while it is with Royal Mail for your complete peace of mind.

Oh, and you get an instruction sheet for XBMC on the Apple TV that I wrote myself to help get you started (lets see if those sellers who copy my ad copy that bit - yes, one German seller actually did).

I always have a range of other Apple TVs available at prices to suit all pockets
, in my eBay Shop: Apple TV Wizard.

As a reputable UK Limited Company and eBay Business Seller I offer a 14 day no quibble full refund if you decide the Apple TV is not for you.  I also offer full after-sales support.

The Android "Apple TV Killer"

I'm sometimes asked why I continue with Apple TVs when Android boxes are cheaper and run XBMC same as an Apple TV.

About three months ago I looked at a range of these Android boxes with a view to selling the best I could find. One that claimed 1080p playback and full hardware acceleration managed three frames per second at 1080p, so technically the claim was true but in the real world... none of the ones I bought managed to run XBMC under Android with any reliability.

Others utilise XBMC under Linux doing away with the Android operating system.  This is becoming more successful but XBMC crashes, a lot, and with an Apple TV you just press menu and down arrow to restart the box, what with an Android box?  With the ones I had you have to completely unplug it and reboot.

So, software-wise, none of them were anywhere near good enough for me to consider stocking them. 

I still have 6 different Android boxes in my office, in a pile, (all of the ones that are being advertised on here as "Apple TV Killers") and the combined weight of all them together doesn't amount to the weight one one Apple TV2.

Last week I tested one of the very latest quad core, Quad Graphics GPU Android players.  You have to load a separate media player because neither the box, nor XBMC has a suitable vidoeo hardware acceleration built in. That's awful.

Now you can have the best of both worlds - a cheaper, stable, well-built Apple TV that runs all the latest XBMC sofware for the same price as a plasticky Android player.

Buy cheap buy twice, as the saying goes.

This Apple TV is fully jailbroken & pre-installed with OPENELEC LINUX RUNNING XBMC Frodo 12.2 (new version!), and Navi-X.

XBMC is the single most powerful piece of software available on a jailbroken Apple TV – allowing you to access & create a library of Movies & TV Shows from your local network as well as index all your Music!

XBMC also gives you access to hundreds of plugins which use the power of the Internet to enable you to stream LIVE TV, catch up on TV Shows & view Movies - all without having to download a single file! For Sports fans, there are countless streams available, especially on SportsDevil & Navi-X - never miss that important fixture again (without the expensive subscription fee!)

Below are just a very few of the plugins I have installed for your viewing pleasure:

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
