    I've jailborken my apple tv 2 , on the lateset version using seas0npass.
    It is a free jailbreak, it might be harder than atv flash but its free and you can get xbmc and other cool stuff
    So i think atv flash is really the same as other jailbreak applications

    I'm using my Appletv all the time now, I think XBMC is the main reason for this, it's just so easy to use!!

    Thanks for everyone's feedback, keep coming back and updating us on your uses, especially if you find a 'can't live without' app your using on it!

    AppleTV is one of the reasons for buying an iPad in my book. :)

    What is the additional functionality you get after jailbreaking please?

    One of the benefits is that you can install XBMC
    XBMC (for me) is actually just sharing my computer dvd rom and hard drive. So i can watch movies..

    I see. Thank you. As I am completely "post PC" that is of little value to me :)

    I was really wondering about the various "catch up TV" services in the UK, such as iPlayer, ITVplayer, 4OD...

    @Janner43, if you check the Jailbreaking section, f4780y and myself have done quite a few stickies of walkthroughs to Jailbreaking the AppleTV and adding the above UK services, trust me, if I can do it anyone can, the directions are really basic, I dont think anyone will struggle. You can always come back and ask as many questions as you feel necessary.
