How-To Install nitoTV, the First Jailbroken AppleTV App

The AppleTV has been jailbroken and we’ve already seen the release of the first AppleTV app courtesy of nitoTV, but how to install it without an AppleTV version of Cydia? Jailbreak maestro MuscleNerd gives us the four-one-one:

1) Jailbreak your AppleTV using PwnageTool
2) SSH into your Apple TV2, the default password is “alpine”

3) Type “passwd” and enter a new password (if you haven’t already)

4) Type: echo “deb ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

5) Type: apt-get update

6) Type: apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV

7) Type: killall Lowtide

Done and dusted! Enjoy the amazing ability to get weather… on your television! The future is now!
