XBMC now running on jailbroken Apple TV or iDevice
 
The open source home theater software XBMC has made the jump from the desktop to both the Apple TV and Apple's mobile devices running iOS. Getting XBMC to work on iOS required hacking into some private Apple APIs, though, so don't expect it to be available via the App Store anytime soon.

Scott Davilla, accomplished Apple TV hacker and lead developer of XBMC for Mac OS X, told TUAW that enabling XBMC to run on iOS hinged on the discovery of a hardware decode API called VideoToolBox by GStreamer developer Ole André Vadla Ravnås.
