NitoTV SSH with Ubuntu on AppleTV 2, How To

Now i made this page to show you guys how to add NitoTV on your AppleTV remember that once you have NitoTV you can install XBMC from NitoTV…

1. Jailbreak Apple TV 2G using Seas0nPass

2. After jailbreak, connect your Apple TV 2G to your Mac OS X and SSH into it using the Terminal app. or Ubuntu and now Windows via PuTTY

3. Use root@ip-address as username and ‘alpine’ as password. You can find out your device’s IP address from Settings –> WiFi –> ‘Name of your Network’.

We recommend you to change your password immediately using the ‘passwd’ command. Type passwd ‘new password’.

4. Add the source repository for NitoTV. Type this one after the other:

echo “deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

apt-get update

apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV

killall Lowtide

5. Restart your Apple TV 2G.

So there you go! You have successfully got your first jailbreak app for ATV 2G.
