Removing MLB from the Apple TV 2 menu

08 Jun 2011

If like me, you have no interest in MLB, will never use it, and would rather you didn’t have it so prominent in your Apple TV menu, this tip is for you.

It’s a bit of a rigmarole, but if you’re really keen to remove it, here are the steps you need to take:

  1. First of all, if you haven’t already done so, jailbreak your Apple TV with Seas0n Pass
  2. ssh into the Apple TV (in something like Transmit, Flow, Cyberduck etc.) using apple-tv.local as the server, root as the username, and alpine as the password. You can of course do it Terminal, using ssh root@apple-tv.local but I find the file editing part a right faff personally!
  3. Navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications/AppleTV.app/Appliances/Internet.frappliance
  4. Open info.plist (I used xcode)
  5. Find ‘FRApplianceCategoryDescriptors’, and delete Item 1, and save.
  6. On the Apple TV, restart lowtide via Maintenance > Settings (or just pull the plug out and pop it back in again)

…and it’s gone!

    Just tried the Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs. Really good - nicer than the meat one, and the thought of Piers Morgan frothing at the mouth makes it even tastier
