How to make SSH persistent on the liberTV jailbreak for Apple TV 4

If you’ve been tinkering around with your Apple TV 4 jailbroken on tvOS 10 with liberTV, you may have noticed that its built-in SSH client, Dropbear, has a tendency to be purged every so often, requiring it be re-spawned and set up again. This is due to the developer’s (admirable) desire to retain all jailbreak-related files in temporary folders on the filesystem, reducing the risk of bricking your device while fiddling with it to near-zero. If you are confident enough to move a few files out of their temporary folder however, you can easily get your SSH client up and running persistently, avoiding those tedious reconfigurations which otherwise occur.

Apple TV

Everything you need to know about Apple TV!

There was two parts to Steve Jobs' 2007 keynote. The first was iPhone. The second, Apple TV. Previously teased as iTV, back then it was a Mac-based, hard drive-equipped, iTunes sync box. Novel, but hardly the future. In 2010, Apple rebooted the TV. Basing it on iOS, it went all flash storage and all-streaming, all the time,. 2012 brought 1080p and then... nothing. For. Three. Long. Years. Finally, in 2015, Apple rebooted the TV again. Not with 4K, but with apps.

There's currently only one Apple TV model available, though it comes with two storage options: 32 KB or 64 KB.

Our recommendation: The Best Apple TV is the 64 GB model

Buying your Apple TV

The current Apple TV doesn't do 4K but it does do Siri and apps, and that makes it a significant improvement over the old Apple TV. Whether or not that means it'll be a compelling upgrade for everyone, and who can get away with the 32 GB version and who needs the full-on 64 GB version remain open questions for some. If you're one of them, we can help you figure out the answers!

Using your Apple TV

Apple TV seems simple. You buy it. You plug one end into the wall socket, the other end into your HDTV, and you're good to you. In theory. In reality, there's a bunch of settings you can tweak to make sure everything from the interface color to the streaming size is just to your liking, and several built-in apps like TV and Apple Music you're going to wnat to get to know really well.

Going beyond Apple TV

The box is just the beginning. The ultimate accessory for any Apple TV might be a game pad. Or it might be a whole new, whole bigger screen. Then there's the apps. So. Many. Apps. To get the most out of your Apple TV, you're going to want to trick it out. And trick it out right!
