I have a retro project using this core which is much better but I can’t release it to the public (at least not yet) because of 1) legality concerns and 2) security concerns.
The emulators available right now require you to provide your own roms. The retro system I have provides them…and as you can image this runs in to grey zones in legality. I don’t want any legal issues for bringing the classic retro passion to folks (which makes me $0 lol). The greatest concern is security though…The software was designed to be used locally, not over the internet.
Hopefully as time progresses – legality and security issues will be addressed. Until then – Enjoy!

Now is a good time to be mining some Ethereum, and if you want to improve your performance, these BIOS mods may be what you are looking for! Check out CryptoCompare.com’s Calculator (modify to your specs of course):
If you are using Jellyfin on Linux, have a HDHomeRun cable tuner, AND have paid for the DVR feature – you may be wondering “Do I really have to pay for a separate EPG service in Jellyfin?!?!”
Answer is: NO – You can use the EPG data that you paid for with HDHomeRun
I have created a small script that will query HDHomeRun network cable tuner’s key, and use that key to download a EPG compatible with Kodi 🙂
You can make a file called pullhdhomerunxmltv.sh and put the following in it:
echo 'Getting Current Key from HDHomeRun...'
KEY=$(curl http://192.168.10.2/discover.json | jq -r .DeviceAuth)
echo 'Current Key is' $KEY #optional line
echo 'Downloading TV Guide Data...'
curl --compressed https://api.hdhomerun.com/api/xmltv?DeviceAuth=$KEY > /data/Containers/jellyfin/xmltvlist.xml
As you can see…This script is pretty simple. For most, no need for me to explain what it’s doing once you see it. However, to make it easy for everyone – I will explain a few things you must modify to make it suit your needs:
Change 192.168.10.2 to the IP of YOUR HDHomeRun device.
Change /data/Containers/jellyfin/xmltvlist.xml to save the epg file where YOU want it.
Don’t forget to give execute permissions to the script:
chmod +x pullhdhomerunxmltv.sh
If this is not working – please make sure you have DVR service active on your HDHomeRun tuner. EPG is part of that service (gotta know when a show plays to automatically record it!).
Hope this helps some of you Jellyfin users out. I prefer watching TV with Kodi…but if you have to stream it to your phone or remotely – It comes in handy having it in Jellyfin too!
UPDATE: 2/25/2022 – The 2nd curl command appears to now require https:// being included. I’ve updated the code above. If you using it already, you’ll have to modify your script. If you are setting it up new for the first time – just copy and current script as it’s updated and should be good to go!
This build works on 10.15 (Catalina) and 11.0 (BigSur). It’s basically MaddTheSane’s with minimal personal tweaks. I take no credit for the work here … I just appreciate his, the original author’s work, and the DOSBox team for making retro gaming possible in 2021’s modern 64-bit operating systems.
Minimal testing on this – If you have any problems you can post them on MaddTheSane’s Github. Hope you enjoy it folks!
Edit – Had some distribution issues with signing of app. I have a copy I found here instead which works until then.
I’m happy to announce the public release of our AzerothCore WOTLK Private (and free) WoW server! This is a WOTLK vanilla experience. If you need help – you can ping Nyx or Demos (GM aka me) for any assistance.
I encourage people to play and enjoy but please no hacks/cheats and please avoid bots…I don’t really have a problem with bots generally IF you use them lightly. I mean to solo, or help you play solo with a few bot ‘assistants’. What I want to avoid are farming bots that keep stealing mats from people that are trying to manually farm. Don’t be a jerk and you can use your bot in a nice ‘subtle fashion’. If you abuse the service you will be warned and/or banned.
This means ALL of the latest iPhones and iPads are now FULLY exploitable up to iOS 13.2.2 (including iOS 13.3 Beta1). If you are the latest version and want to finally give full freedom to your iOS device -> IT IS FINALLY HERE!
Now there are some minor exceptions on certain devices…but they are going to be addressed in the near future, and all will be (near) perfect. I’m actually going to test this on my iPhone 5s just to see how ‘imperfect’ this is. I’m also going to be testing this in an iPad Mini 4, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and iPhone X (yes we are an Apple family here 🙂
If there are any issues, I will be reporting them here. Until then – if you are feeling brave and SICK of not having Cydia (or Silio if you prefer that..) – Give it a swing! IF you are feeling worried – wait for my update. However, I’d HIGHLY recommend you take the dive and upgrade your firmware to 13.2.2 before Apple stops signing this firmware (thus making it impossible to install/downgrade to) and patches the exploit.
At the end of the day – It’s nice to see there’s nothing that will stop hackers from pwning our own physical devices 😉 – Remote exploits are another story (threaten safety of all..), but local privilege escalation exploits are VERY welcome!
UPDATE #1 – iPad Mini 4 and iPhone 7 Plus both have upgraded super smoothly! iPhone 5s I have has TaiG jailbreak and is being a pain with letting me download the latest update…will be doing more phones 🙂
