updated 04:55 pm EDT, Tue September 21, 2010

App supports playback, scrobbling

FireCore has launched aTV Flash 4.2, updating the Apple TV hack with support for Last.fm's music streaming service. aTV Flash is primarily devoted to enabling formats such AVI, MKV, WMV and VIDEO_TS, normally incompatible with Apple's firmware. It also adds a WebKit-based web browser, and permits expanded storage using an external USB hard drive.

The Last.fm support comes in the form of a dedicated app, with scrobbling compatibility, and artwork and bios for artists. The update also improves weather forecast presentations, as well as Sapphire and NitoTV support. Various performance enhancements and bugfixes have been made, for instance targeting the download/update process.

aTV Flash 4.2 requires a USB flash drive and an Apple TV with v3.0 firmware. Mac owners must be running Mac OS X 10.4, while Windows users must have at least Windows XP. The software is $50.
