Found an Apple TV 1st generation on the ground, in the middle of the road.
It was raining but no water was inside. Took it home, opened it and dried the little water that was inside (mere drops).
Someone opened it before me as the rubber bottom was missing.
Works but as I have no remote to use it and no Samba device to access it (no wifi from it either), I don't know if it is still fully functional.
It was reset to factory.
No, I don't have an iphone to replicate the remote. 🙁
Some will pair with bluetooth if you've got a bud with an apple doohickey to come over. There may be android app workarounds too.
I discovered that there are many alternative distros of Linux, even Leopard, that can be installed on it.
Basically it's useless as it can't connect to iTunes due to protocol/encryption/... being obsolete and not supported anymore.
It's just a nice piece of junk for funzies.
I'll clean it up a little more and just park it somewhere. Not the kind of retro I'm interested in.
