Apple TV Has 8GB of Storage: Great News for Greenpois0n Hacker

By Posted 30 Sep 2010, 02:58

On September 20th we suggested that the iPhone hacker Joshua Hill (aka p0sixninja) would perhaps work on a jailbreak for the new Apple TV, a recent p0sixninja tweet has again hinted that he may well be looking to exploit it.

Yesterday he tweeted “Looks like new AppleTV has 8GB of storage room. Plenty of space for a few extra apps ;)”, prior to this tweet we werent sure of the new Apple TV’s internal storage, this is because it stream movies, TV shows, music and photos, instead of storing them locally.

As far as we know all of p0sixninja’s time is being spent on the Greenpois0n jailbreak for iPhone/iPod Touch, however this could arrive within the next few days, which means that he could then perhaps concentrate on the Apple TV jailbreak.

Will you be interested in jailbreaking your new Apple TV?

    Hahahaha!

    Like you all know? This technology is nothing new. How much shit do you think you can store on an 8 gig. disk space? Want free HD movies? Get a fucking device just for that with at least 1 terabyte disk space.

  • Steve

    Guys. I was only being funny. Seriously, I do not care much for the Apple’s TV. I only want other free apps. This technology is nothing new. Beside, an 8GB disk space won’t do much. I have a 2 terabytes HD streaming device that can blow up to 1080P resolution, which your phone can not do. Thanks for calling me a dumb a$$.

      You don't stream 2TB, that's called storage. The ATV streams from sources like Netflix or a PC on your network running iTunes, so there's no need for storage on the device.

      • Steve

        Agreed. Let say you don’t care for storing anything, so all video contents are residing on RAM. I like to store some of my favorite movies, so I need a 2TB san box to work with my media device; capable of 1080P, which my TV supports. My point is why would anyone care for the Apple’sTV? I work with Cisco gears; including video products that send multicast traffic to hundred of viewers, so I know what I am talking about. Thanks for a lesson anyway.

    This green thing will never get released. Not sure why they there is news for a free Apple’sTV. Multicasting over wireless LAN? What an idiot
