Cydia possible in the future?
This jailbreak provides SSH access without GUI-based features and is mainly aimed at jailbreak developers and security researchers. its not going to give you an app icon or anything like that only Access to the file systems. With that said, this should still be considered as a good news as it opens the door for new modifications and improvements to the Apple TV. For instance, jailbreak developers could provide a way for users to theme the interface of Apple TV apart from enjoying new features, we could even see a Cydia for the Apple TV 4 in the near future.
