Either a dylib (better solution) or rename XBMC.app to AppleTV.app (can't recommend this)

XBMC is not an app as such in the conventional sense, it's a FrontRow appliance which relies on AppleTV.app being loaded.

Some people will complain about the smallest detail of anything, just in order to have something to complain about. When you put the ATV to sleep, it resumes right where you left off. You only have to start XBMC once and then you never have to see lowtide again unless the power in your house goes out. Is it really that much of a hassle to input the four keypresses needed to start XBMC the 1-2 times a year that would be necessary?

I was in no way trying to complain.

Isn't this entire thing about pushing the jailbreking community into figuring out new things?

Now, on the iPhone there are springboard replacements like pogoboard so obviously someone knows something on the subject.

Its not about bitching or complaining, its about figuring this stuff out.

Chill El Nacho. Nobody was complaining, it was a simple question. That's what makes this forum and community so awesome. If you don't like it, don't read.

Not at the current time. No one has figured out how to run iOS apps on the AppleTV2.
