Apple TV Jailbreak benefits?

I have access to an Apple TV 2nd Gen for $100. Considered buying it to jailbreak. Is it still worth it to run a jailbroken Apple TV? What can I do with it outside of XBMC/Kodi?

Just curious, is the current 3rd generation not "jailbreakable"? That would be the only reason I could see not buying the 3rd generation, since Apple just dropped it to $69.

correct the gen 3 model (the one currently for sale) is not jailbreakable. If you do a quick eBay search for Gen 2 Apple TV they are usually for sale from around $150+. Just never had an Apple TV so wondering if its worth having the jailbroken 2 or just save my money and get the 3.

hi,
You'll be able to add slideshows and weather to the main menu of your Apple TV, you can adjust screen saver settings, hide menus, and so much more.
