How to install nitoTV on your [jailbroken] Apple TV2

nitoTV is burning the midnight oil and has tweeted a new repository from which you can grab the first GUI-based AppleTV2 app (technically a Lowtide plugin), which currently has weather and RSS functionality.

To use it, do the following:

1) Open Terminal and SSH into it (ssh root@your-ip-address). Type in the password (alpine)
2) Type "passwd" and enter a new password (if you haven't already)
3) Type: echo "deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list
4) Type: apt-get update
5) Type: apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV
6) Type: killall Lowtide
7) After everything is done, unplug and plug it back in, wait for your AppleTV to reboot
8) Enjoy

  1. Hi, I was having a problem with XBMC where it would no longer let me change any settings for some reason. Everything else worked but I could not make changes to any options in the settings.
    I decided to do nightly and it downgraded me from 09 to 07Have yet to see if the systems error has been fixed, but why did it downgrade??
    Thanks for your support

  2. Home Share wont work, u need to share the folder like Printer share style, i have a video please check let me know if it worked

  3. Followed your instructions but I get in step 5 :
    dependency problems prevent configuration of org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2:
    org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2 depends on org.xbmc.xbmc-seatbeltunlock; however:
    Package org.xbmc.xbmc-seatbeltunlock is not installed.
    Taking Step 6 gives:
    Package org.xbmc.xbmc-seatbeltunlock is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package org.xbmc.xbmc-seatbeltunlock has no installation candidate

    So I am lost……., any advice on hoe to get this working?

    • $ echo “deb http://apt.saurik.com/ tangelo-3.7 main”>/etc/apt/sources.list.d/saurik.list

      $ apt-get update
      $ apt-get -f install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

      try this first before you go to seatbeltunlock

      • Tried that bit it gives:

        apt-get -f install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
        Reading package lists… Done
        Building dependency tree
        Reading state information… Done
        Package org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
        This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
        is only available from another source
        E: Package org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2 has no installation candidate

        I Jb’d this ATV with seas0nPass without problems but fail on installing XBMC or Nitotv

        • the posting i have where your writting, i am sure if you seen my link is not linked to xbmc since the link is always not online

          mine is totaly different

          3) Make update on the AppleTV:

          $ apt-get update
          $ apt-get -f install

          4) Download the latest beta nightly build of XBMC

          $ wget http://xctechs.info/files/latest_atv2.deb

          5) Install the XBMC you just downloaded

          $ dpkg -i latest_atv2.deb

          (then hit enter and wait until its done)

          6) Install seatbelt unlock ( this is the sandbox fix )

          $ apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-seatbeltunlock

          7) Just to make sure that all dependencies have been installed properly:

          $ apt-get -f install

          Block your Apple TV from checking with Apple for iOS updates

          Go To nitoTV and install UpdateBeGone

          9) Respring your system

          $ killall AppleTV
