So having a Jailbroken Apple TV is awesome for loads of reasons,if you want to find out these reasons, check out our article on ‘Benefit’s of Jailbreaking a Apple TVhere . But i bet you never could turn your little black box of awesomeness into your very own Karaoke machine?!

Let’s be honest, we all like a little bit of Karaoke now and then, or even when we’ve had a few to many! :-) We are going to show you how you can entertain friends with your awesome singing voice using this program rocking on your Jailbroken Apple TV.

What you need:

  • Jailbroken Apple TV (Check out our article on how to achieve this here)
  • Fusion Repo added (Check how you can do this here)

 

  • As in our post on adding the ‘Fusion’ Repository, you add what ever add-ons you want, but for the Karaoke plugin we need to add a certain repo called: Mikey’s1234Our article shows you how to add these so make sure you have this done 1st and enabled the programs!
  • Turn on your Apple TV and navigate to the ‘Music’ Program.
