The AppleTV OS has been liberated -- more hacks on the way?

And that means that intrepid hackers might be able to get the OS to run on non-AppleTV boxes or add functionality to the existing hardware. But the first step is getting the operating system off of the hard drive to take a look at it.

Well, it looks like we can cross that one off the list. While it's no longer hosted on his web site for obvious reasons, one fine fellow managed to extract a disc image of the AppleTV OS. He reports that it's now available on various BitTorrent sites.

The disc image is about 200MB, and right now it only works with the AppleTV hardware.
