Apple TV 2G interface runs on iPod touch

An iOS developer has managed to extract the second-generation Apple TV’s main interface and run it on an iPod touch. Named, the interface was built with support for multiple devices, including the iPad, in its list of supported hardware, TUAW reports. Developer Dustin Howett took the application and managed to get it running on an iPod touch, although it required modification of the iPod touch’s software, to the point where it needed to be completely restored to regain its normal functionality. Notably, the application runs at full resolution and therefore does not display the entire Apple TV interface on the iPod touch, but instead only the furthest left portion. A video of the interface in action on the iPod touch is embedded below.

#1 and your post was useful how.

If you don’t have a clue what this means then your not thinking outside the box so to speak.

Now if he can get this running on a ‘Pad, then that would be infinitely more useful.  Can he rent movies right on his ‘Touch yet?
