This is a quick tutorial on how to install Plex 0.9.0 Beta on your Jailbreaken Apple TV with firmware 4.4.4. This entire tutorial was done using Windows 7.
What you will need to do this:
- Jailbroken Apple TV 2 (4.4.4 will be used in this tutorial) How To
- Putty SSH Client (Or equivalent) Download
Step 1: Turn your Apple TV on and navigate to Settings > General > Network. Write down the numbers next to the “IP Address” field. For this demo I am going to use “192.168.0.114″
Step 2: Launch Putty.exe …You should not have to install this application.
Step 3: Enter your Apple TVs IP Address under the “Host Name (or IP address)” field and hit enter. The first time you do this it will take a longer amount of time and warn you about security. Click “Yes” on the pop-up.
Step 4: It will ask you “login as:” enter “root” to log in as the root user and hit enter.
Step 5: It will ask you for your root user password. Enter the default password of ”alpine” and hit enter. (the password will not show as you type)
Step 6: Now you have to add new Cydia sources. Copy the text below, right click in Putty to paste it, click enter when done.
echo "deb http://www.ambertation.de ./downloads/PLEX/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plex.list
Step 7: Now you have update your Cydia database. Copy the text below, right click in Putty to paste it, click enter when done. It may ask you a couple of yes or no questions. Answer “y” every time.
Step 8: Install Plex for Apple TV 4.4.4. Copy the text below, right click in Putty to paste it, click enter when done. It may ask you a couple of yes or no questions. Answer “y” every time.
apt-get install com.plex.client-plugin=0.0.9.0.0-312c11b0
Step 9: Apple TV will reboot and you will see a PLEX menu now.
