I am trying to Jailbreak my AppleTV3 and install XBMC
i was successful with my AppleTV2 using SeasOn Pass, and Nito, and it works well, but would rather use my ATV3 given the resolution

I'm just not having any luck with the ATV and finding a program that works. Ive tried going in using Mobomarket and its just not happy

Any ideas?

Yeah, AppleTV 3 is almost impossible to jailbreak.

Amazon FireTV is pretty good for that, and has 4K.

I use FireTV for Kodi and it works really well. Kodi's message board has a thread on this topic and they say it doesn't work on AppleTV3 but it does for AppleTV4. You should be able to use Plex, which is a fork of Kodi, with the AppleTV3 although I'm not sure if they require a subscription for local streaming and it has some different features from Kodi.

Anyone find a way to put Kodi on an AppleTV 3 yet? I'd really like the ability to watch my amazon prime videos on the AT3. Shouldn't have ditched the PS3 I was using for that before.
Last I checked: no. There's some clickbait out there that comes up in searches, but AFAIK it's how to screen cast, or some other BS (non) workaround.

FWIW, with the new s912 chip available, s8xx and s905 Android/Kodi sticks and boxes are coming down in price. You dont have to go any farther than Amazon.
