  3. Hi Mister,
    I followed your great step-by-step tutorial, but i have a little problem.
    NitoTV was not installed, but XBMC was. How can i solve this?
    When i try to open XBMC it wont work, but i guess that maybe has to do with NitoTV not being installed?

    Hope you can reply 🙂

    • did you SSH nitoTV?? that has its own video

      • hehe thank you… i thought nitoTV was installed along with the XBMC, but i saw yout video for nitoTV now and it worked like a charm 🙂
        However, when i click on XBMC the tv goes black for a little while, and returns to the main AppleTV menu

  4. Hey xctechs.

    I have de 4.4.2 installed on my apple TV and I follow all your steps to install the XCBM, it show in the screen like is installed but when I click to use it the screen goes black like is going to work and then get me back to the apple TV main menu.

    If you can help me I will appreciate. I have the past 8 hours without sleep trying to get it work.


    • you need to install XBMC nightly Built using PuTTY if your on Windows, after you installed nightly Built XBMC tether boot and your good to go,

  5. I already did and folow all the steps in your video using putty and it appears to be done, i tether boot and everything. But when i press the XBMC in the main menu the programm dosent start. =(

  6. Hi xtechs,

    first of all thanks for your great work!

    So, i have the same problem like Bengt and Luis. The tether boot did (for me) not solved the problem. Always black screen and go back to the main menu. Any idea?

    Regards Wolfgang

    • That is another package, and another video follow it MainMenuSlideShow, you need to have backgrounds downloaded too and load it after installing MainMenuSlideShow
