If you didn’t upgrade and jailbreak your Apple TV 2 using Seas0nPass due to the lack of availability of XBMC media center for Apple TV Software Update 5.2 (iOS 6.1) then we’ve some good news.

XBMC is now available for iOS 6.1 for Apple TV 2.

XBMC is probably one of the popular reasons to jailbreak Apple TV. It is an open source media center application that supports most common audio, video, and image formats, playlists, audio visualizations, slideshows, weather forecasts reporting, and third-party plugins.

XBMC can also stream content from YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, and Veoh, and play music streaming services like Pandora and Spotify on your Apple TV.

Nate Thomas of XBMC announced the availability on the XBMC forum yesterday:

As many of you likely have been aware, neither XBMC nor any other non-Apple media center has been available for the updated Apple TV 2 Software 5.2 (iOS 6.1).

Now, we are pleased to announce that XBMC finally supports this update, thanks to the incredible work of XBMC dev Memphiz.

We’ll publish a tutorial shortly on how to install it, until then you can refer to XBMC’s wiki for the installation instructions here and let us know how it goes in the comments.
