Note: If you don’t yet have a free Apple developer account, please learn how to get one using this tutorial. It only takes a few minutes. Also, you will need a USB Type-C cable to complete this tutorial. This is a new type of USB cable that can be purchased from Amazon HERE
Step A: Create a free Apple ID using this link. If you already have an Apple ID, you can go directly to Step B
Step B: Sign in to the Apple Developer Member Center using your Apple ID to give your Apple ID access to limited developer privileges. You will be asked to read an enrollment form, and check a box stating that you agree.
Step D: Click the ‘+’ sign → Add Apple ID, and sign in with your Apple ID
Congratulations. You will now be able to use your free Apple ID for provisioning and deployment to iOS devices using Xcode. Of course, there are still many privileges that you don’t get with a free developer account. This includes access to early developer betas. Here is a chart that compares the different levels of developer membership, and the privileges that come with it.
Step 1: Download the latest nightly KODI.deb file, the IOS APP SIGNER (save both to desktop and unzip the iOS App Signer) and make sure you have Xcode 7 installed.
Step 2: Connect your Apple TV to your Mac using a USB Type-C cable.
Step 3: Launch Xcode → click Create a new Xcode Project → select Application under tvOS → Single View Application, and click Next.
Step 4: In the Product name field, insert a unique name like KodiAppleTVforYourNameHere and click Next → Create
Step 5: Under the Team drop down box, select your personal team, and click the Fix Issue button to resolve provisioning issues. You will need to ensure that you are signed into Xcode with a free Apple developer account.
Step 6: Ensure that your Apple TV is selected in the destination menu at the top of the screen. You can also click Product → Destination, and select Apple TV.
Step 7: Minimize Xcode and open the iOS App Signer.
Step 8: Click Browse on the iOS App Signer and select the Kodi.deb nightly file from the desktop.
Step 9: Select your Apple ID in the iOS App Signer’s Signing Certificate box.
Step 10: Select the Project name/bundle identifier you just created in Xcode in iOS App Signer’s
Provisioning Profile box.
Step 11: Click Start in the bottom right-hand corner of the iOS App Signer, and the .IPA file for Kodi will be built and saved to the desktop.
Step 12: Open Xcode → Window → Devices and select the Apple TV
Step 13: Click the ‘+’ sign and select the .IPA file from the desktop and click Open. Kodi will now be deployed to your Apple TV
Step 14: Once finished, you should see the Kodi app on your Apple TV’s Home screen.
That’s all there is to it. You can now enjoy a very early version of Kodi on your new Apple TV
