Anyone got PLEX running on 4.4.4 ?


i can’t get it run :(.

Installed the latest and older versions of PLEX.

Either crashing or doing nothing.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Plex only runs on older firmwares…you will need to check compatibility to your’s…

There is not really much Information available at the Plex Forum.

Or any other way to get IPTV running on ATV2 ?

Version 0.9.0 Beta 4 runs just fine!

Link to Beta 4

Instructions how to get PLEX (0.90 beta 4) on a Jailbreaked Apple TV 2 (4.4.4):

Be sure your Apple TV2 is on

1) Start Terminal on your iMac 2) Type: ssh


3) Type: alpine (the password) 4) Type: echo "deb ./downloads/PLEX/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plex.list 5) Type: apt-get remove com.plex.client-plugin 6) Type: apt-get update 7) Type: apt-get install com.plex.client-plugin=

Now your Apple TV2 should reset and when its starters there is PLEX.

(hint: you can also copy => paste the lines in terminal)




Hi, aim getting following error .(


Apple-TV:~ root# apt-get update

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (35: Resource temporarily unavailable)

E: Unable to lock the list directory

I found this for your E: Problem

0.9.0 BETA 4
Installation instructions:

* apt-get remove com.plex.client-plugin
* apt-get update
* apt-get install com.plex.client-plugin=

If you get this error when running the apt-get install command:


E: Version '' for 'com.plex.client-plugin' was not found
then run this command first, before trying again:
echo "deb ./downloads/PLEX/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plex.list

And should you decide to do so, you can always downgrade:

* apt-get remove com.plex.client-plugin
* apt-get install com.plex.client-plugin

Although it can be a pain having to set things up again (especially for you that use remote machines), it is usually worth clearing out the preference file as it can sometimes cause trouble when we have added or modified the settings:

* rm /User/Library/Preferences/com.plex.client-plugin.plist

jaredm.4004 you my friend, are a god-send.  Thank you so much.  Don’t know how you knew how to do it, but it worked for me.  A million times THANKS.
