This is a written tutorial on how to install NitoTV on your appleTV. This is the very first app developed for the aTV. Originally this was a simple weather and RSS application but now has grown into an app installer to install apps like XBMC, exposed and others.

Here is the command needed to type in after you ssh into your aTV.

Step #1 SSH into your aTV by typing: ssh root@ your ip address

Step #2 Enter your password – By default it’s alpine.

Step #3 Add this repository.
echo “deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

Step #4 Type: apt-get update

Step #5 Type: apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV

Step #6 Type: killall AppleTV

That’s it now your aTV will reboot and bam, you should have NitoTV. which will allow you to install apps without having to ssh into your aTV.
