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 https://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.
