If you really want to get this done check out what XBMC group have
done, they have the most experience with Apple hardware and have
ported the XMBC Player to Apple TV Gen 1 and Gen 2.
My response wasn't intended to be trollish, just pointing out we
mostly do x86 stuff here. The other issue you will have is how to
control it. You'll need at the least one of those WiFi Keyboard
applications so you can remotely send keystrokes. I'm unsure if the
first generation boxes have Bluetooth and for that matter second
generation probably don't.
There is some mention of drivers, linux and firmware you will need on
your Apple Box in order for HDMI to function properly. Keep in mind
too, that Android would exist alongside your iOS, so any accidental
firmware update would not delete your Android install but would make
it inaccessible. I know that from my iPhone when I did an update, all
my Cydia apps and content were still there just couldn't use them
until I re jailbreak my device.

I have one and some experience with android-x86... but i dont have
much time. If you wanna start the project i can help you as much as i
Like tintar said, maybe the most problematic is wifi, lirc, and if you
have one installed, the broadcom HW codec crystalhd.

I was thinking that Android would make an amazing low overhead and
flexible device. Some specshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_TV
Honestly both would work here. BUT seeing as I have 2 1st Gens lying
around I would love to tinker with them and get android on there. If
its been done is there a project out there? If not I would love to
learn to get it on there. I figure the biggest things would be the
remote and nvidia go 7300 driver.
