    So you know how Apple is always trying to stop us from jailbreaking, right?
    Well then they shouldd patch the Apple TV firmware, right?
    Wrong. And right. When they release this thing in November, (iOS 4.2) they should add an App section to the Apple TV. This would put it above the Roku and Google TV. It could just be another feature for AirPLAY(Emphasis on play.) Also, they would patch the firmware so you couldn't jailbreak it.

    They can't patch this jailbreak, it's hardware based.

    Well, no. iPod games run at either 480 by 320 resolution, or 960 by 640 resolution.

    It would look really blurry on a 1920 by 1080 flatscreen TV.

    (Just like when you double-size iPod games on an iPad, they suddenly look like crap.)

    The ROM is where iOS is installed.. The exploit is in the bootrom, before iOS gets booted. The ROM is not read-only, like the bootrom.

    ROM stands for read-only memory. What you just said was:

    The read-only memory is not read-only.

    Also iOS is not installed on ROM, for obvious reasons.

    I bet you we will see apps on next years model, like with the iPhone... No app store or nothing on the 1st release, but jailbreaking introduced all that. And then with the next releases it all came. Apple's just waiting to see what we come up with.

    But imagine the price they could charge for a game like that for the AppleTV. Imagine them charging 20 or 30 dollars for a game on AppleTV that you could interact with using an iOS capable device, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, to play it, then you could make it like the Wii in the fact that its a family gaming platform, and market it as such, not just for TV shows and movies but also for awesome family games that take little time, and can be a ton of fun for the whole family, or for some friends who have iOS devices that way it not only sells the AppleTV, it also sells other iOS devices so that people can use the AppleTV to the fullest.
