PSA: Kodi For AppleTv Needs Maintainers!!


Howdy, Y’all. I recently Jailbroke my Apple TV and noticed there is hardly anyone maintaining the Apple TV. The last public deb file was posted from what my research showed on: February 27, 2018.

Most importantly thank you to @nitoTV , @coolstar and the entire Chimera team and everyone else involved in getting the jailbreak going for 12.4 on the AppleTV. Let’s get kodi running smoothly on the apple tv y’all!

PS: I’m a level 1 dev. I am not endorsed by any one and these thoughts and info reflect myself not Kodi team or any of the jailbreak scene. If you find a working version of Kodi 18 or 19. Please shoot me a dm on twitter @frankpanduh and I’ll update and cite you if you want! thanks for reading!
