NO PLEX aTV Flash 2.2

After updating my Apple TV to version 2.2 of aTV Flash does not appear for the PLEX installation.

I’m disappointed because it says nothing on the page firecore!!

Personnel Firecore we will solve it soon!!

I think that is because the 2.2 update was primarily targeted at getting it to run on the 5.2 firmware and currently Plex is not compatible with 5.2.  I expect it will re-appear when the Plex developers update it to be compatible with the 5.2 firmware.

Just finished updating from the 4.3 OS and came here for the same issue, no Plex. Has anyone seen or found a way of getting Plex back onto this little device?

Here is the latest update from thomashw – he is working on it!

I just sent him a PayPal donation to show my appreciation. You can go here to do the same. :slight_smile:

And in the meantime I am using the PleXBMC plugin inside XBMC.  It’s okay, not great, but at least something usable while we wait for an actual Plex app!

Hi guys, I'm sorry for the lack of updates. I have slowly been working on getting Plex to work on the new firmware, but unfortunately it literally means going over each file with a fine-tooth comb and and since the project is large it takes quite some time (and it's not the most enjoyable task in the world!). If you're interested in how we have to do things now you can look here and read the README: 

Also look in the Classes folder at the .xm files - I have to update all of the Plex code similar to those .xm files.

I don't have a timeline for when it will be done, but I hope you knowing I'm working on it gives you a bit of peace of mind.

As for other developers helping out, they're certainly allowed. I know at least one developer was given access to the repo as I was discussing how we should coordinate working together over emails, but unfortunately he didn't reply and I haven't seen anything from him (this was about 6-8 weeks ago).

I'll try to pop back in to answer any more questions you guys have. Let me know.




  • Any news about PLEX in  aTV Flash 2.2 ?

I doubt we will ever see it now PlexConnect is available. I wont be using that, myself, but it seems to work fairly well for those who do. Familiarity with Terminal is recommended.
