Official support for Apple TV2 Kodi to stop

I just found this info while looking around and wondered if it is common knowledge or just a load of rubbish.

Below is the first paragraph from his anouncement and below that is a link to the full message

As the current maintainer of the AppleTV2 platform for Kodi, I wanted you to know that I have decided to stop official support for it. I know that the fact that XBMC/Kodi runs on Apple’s black puck has been the main reason for buying one for many people, but it has become a dead end for Kodi.

I just saw this now and found this article on tvaddons.org which confirms it. Bugger.

This just simply means there will be no Kodi 15.0 for ATV2, which is understandable. However, Kodi 14.1 should continue to work just fine for quite some time.

Is it somehow possible to downgrade from Kodi to XBMC 13.2 since kodi keeps crashing on every second click…

You can upgrade to 14.2 rc1 which fixes some issues.

You can also look at this page: http://kodi.wiki/view/HOW-TO:Install_XBMC_on_Apple_TV_2#Development_and_custom_builds

You’ll need the URL for org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2_13.2-0_iphoneos-arm.deb from http://mirrors.kodi.tv/apt/atv2/deb/.
