So far in the Apple TV 2 jailbreak saga, we've seen hacks for a weather app and even support fot Plex, although admittedly there were a few buggy setbacks. Now, software company FireCore has announced that it will be bringing both Last.FM and Web browser named Couch Surfer to the Apple TV via its own app, aTV Flash (black).

The company teamed up with a few developers to get the two custom app ready, and so far, so good. The Last.FM part of the app, focuses on Last.FM radio and features a sleek slideshow effect, which will stream the content to the Apple TV.

Meanwhile Couch Surfer allows users to use most normal Web browsing functions, as well as some plug-ins, though the company hasn't mentioned anything about Adobe Flash yet.

FireCore boasts aTV Flash as an easy-to-use app that will not involve further tinkering with the Apple TV to install or use it. The first beta will be ready to buy in the next 1-2 weeks after a few finishing touches.

Although there is no mention of price, FireCore previously released a similar deal for the first generation of Apple TVs for $50, so it is likely to be around the same for new users. Previous users can upgrade for free.
