A easy installer for plex-atv

A small and simple script for installing plex-atv on your Apple TV (Gen 2).


You'll need a Apple TV (Gen 2) that is jailbroken. We suggest you use seas0npass since it's the easiest way. The script is only tested on Mac OSX, but I would suspect that it works fine on Linux as well. Windows users are on their own.



To install plex-atv on your newly jailbroken ATV you just have to run:

./ install

This will try to install it on a Apple TV on the local network called apple-tv.local. If you want to install on another Apple TV (for example living-room-apple-tv), then give it the option --atv-host

./ --atv-host=living-room-apple-tv.local

You can also pass --atv-user and --atv-password if you have changed the defaults from root/alpine

The installer also supports different branches of plex-atv. It defaults to install the stable one, but if you want to install the beta:

./ -b beta install

or snapshot

./ -b snapshot install


You can remove plex-atv from your ATV by running

./ remove

Other handy commands

You can upgrade your plex-atv by running:

./ upgrade

You can see what version currently is installed by running:

./ status

You can remove the settings file for plex-atv by running:

./ removesettings

Known issues

If you install snapshot or beta version and want to revert to stable it's currently not that easy. I will be adding a option for that later. For know, be careful when not installing the stable branch
