maybe someone already asked this question - if so never mind. And sorry for my poor english.
First of all I’m very happy with my apple tv 2 and atv flash (besides the fixed 720p output and the limitation with high bitrate mkv’s). Waiting for months now to get a JB for my atv 3 - wondering if there will ever be one - I’m asking my self why u just don’t move to another platform. I mean by atv flash u show that u are capable to make a very powerful mediaplayer, so why don’t move to a android base device or something like that? I can’t believe that it is more easy to develop for an closed and undocumented system like the atv, than for an open system like android or debian.
At least u could sell a whole package, for example a specific android device with ur own software running. No more trouble with jailbreaking, updating (and again jailbreaking) or hoping for a new exploit. Also u can specifiy ur own hardware, so there would be enough memory or cpu power - fewer limitations to work around.
Or just go with already existing devices like the MK802. Very powerfull, even more powerful than an atv 3 and native hardware support for 2160p - and less expensive than an apple tv, too.
I would appreciate if u would think of something like that in addition to your actual portfolio.
