The XBMC media center has been fully ported to the Apple TV, iPad, and iPhone 4.

These are not initial ports, and they are not early development snapshots. Here they are: full XBMC installs and source code, ready for consumption.

Apple TV
● Full XBMC install, this is not a remote or thin client streamer.
● No longer is your AppleTV2 chained to iTunes.
● Who wants transcoded video anyway?
● Share files on your network your way.
● Full hardware decode for 720p/1080p movies.
● Everything else you know and love about XBMC.

You can install XBMC on your jailbroken Apple TV by following these instructions.

iPad/iPhone 4
● You guessed it, this is full-blown XBMC. Not a remote.
● Launch XBMC like any other app.
● Drag and drop media from your computer, or share it on your home-network
● Also fully hardware accelerated for most formats.
● Works on iPhone4, though it’s currently frustrating to use.
● Challenge: Who will be the first to create a gesture-driven skin?

You can install XBMC on your jailbroken iPad/iPhone by adding the http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/ios/ repo to Cydia.

Installed and works very nice on my iPad on iOS 4.2.1. This is awesome! Thanks!

Installed this on an iPhone 4 w/ iOS 4.2.1 .. don\'t like it, unless you have a magnifying lense, you cannot see anything, especially if you go into the settings. I noticed that there are side menus to the main selections, on the iPhone, those side menus do not show. Not worth putting on iPhone (just my 2 cents)
