Geek time! ;)

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

Kissy got stuck in NL as she can’t fly because of terrible back pain. 🙁 So I have been home alone this weekend and that means: geek time!! 😉

This week the XBMC team released a full XBMC iOS App that also runs on the AppleTV 2G…and *that* is exactly what I have been waiting for why (and why I bought the AppleTV!)

It requires a jailbroken AppleTV, and there are currently only tethered jailbreaks available (meaning that you need to have the device connected to a computer when it boots). No problem I thought, enough computers in the house 😉 , but…unfortunately no-can-do for me at the moment. 🙁 🙁 The jailbreak is only available for Mac OS X and my good old Mac Mini is too old (G4 processor running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard) and cannot complete the jailbreak process…DARN! 🙁

Luckily there was another geek thing to do: now that Kissy has her iPhone4 I got my old 1st gen. iPhone back and wiped it so I can use it with my dutch SIM, a huge upgrade from the old Nokia 6110 that I was using as ‘dutch phone’, especially for sending sms’s!! (writing an sms the old fashioned way causes ‘thumb’-RSI) 😉
