SSH on Windows Using PuTTy For Apple TV 2, How To

Alot of you guys requested if there is a way to SSH XBMC or NitoTV, so i have created this video to show you guys its very Easy to SSH on Windows, i found a software named PuTTY, and i may pronouce it as Patty, but yes its Putty, i’ll place a link here so you guys could get it too…

so

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.

    I feel like i have tried to do this a hundred times

    it worked the first time then I added xbmc and it crashed now it wont work???

    Help

    • U need type every little . And / and space if you miss it you’ll get these type of error so saying this you need to try again

  7. Ahhhhhhaaaa
    When copying and pasting the repository it changes the Quotation marks to periods.

    So i switched them!!!!

    Now it works Finally

    Do you have a good step by step video for installing and using XBMC? do I have to have an XBOX? Every time I install it doesnt work. it goes on my main screen then I click it and the screen goes blank comes back on and nothing happens??????
    Thanks for any help

    • It has nothing to do with Xbox this software is total different you need to share folder and movies from your computer must be connect same router with appleTV and connect

  8. Hi xctechs ! All seemed to work fine, Jailbreak using Seas0nPass
    Used PuTTY to install. Only issue was the killall Lowtide command which returned “No matching processes were found?” (Used the command killall AppleTV – hope this isnt my prob)
    Now on reboot appletv menu screen is there, everything looks ok I can see the installed NitoTV but I cannot get the remote control to action anything? light on the front of unit still blinks? Stuck now, Any help appreciated.. Cheers

    • if the Killall Lowtide don’t work just use Killall AppleTV

      • yes, already done that 🙁 like i say everything seems ok I can see NitoTv on the menu screen now it’s just that one apple tv remote doesnt appear to work anymore so I cannot select any options or do anything within apple tv once it’s switched on.

        • nitoTV installation has nothing to do with ATV2 Remote control, onces You Ssh NitoTV take the power cord out and put it back in so it restarts it should be good if your Tethered jailbreak then make sure you tether the ATV2 back

  9. i get this when i copy the source
    root# E: Type ‘.deb’ is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

  10. hi,i followed the steps,when i typed in the IP add 192.168.1.6 (as what shown in the tv, there is a prompt pops out says network error: connections refused…why is that so?
    therefore i cant even log in as there is no black page comes out.
    HELP

    • make sure you Jailbreak your AppleTV 2 first then connect to same router or network that your Computer is connected try again

  11. Can,t find or get Icefilm to work.

    • yes its because its not supported by xctechs, icefilms not compatible with ATV2 and if you need please check on there official website
