iOS apps seen running on Apple TV

So you have jailbroken your Apple TV. What to do now? How about… run iOS apps. Yeah, you read that properly. It has been a longtime coming but diligent hackers have finally been able to run iOS apps on Apple TV; the video above shows a demonstration of Apple TV running iPad apps with the assistance of VNC.

The hack has been conjured using Apple TV MobileX. MobileX, according to the developers, is a “Windows manager for iOS that replaces Springboard with the added bonus of letting iPhone and iOS apps run on Apple TV”. MobileX has not been finished yet so at this time you can’t do this yourself on your Apple TV; but the development of it looks promising. Stay tuned for updates — I will be sure to post when MobileX goes live to the public!
