The other day we told you about NitoTV, the first app for jailbroken Apple TVs. The app is essentially an RSS reader for your big screen and also does things such as weather. People have been curious as to how they can install the app on their own Apple TVs and here are the instructions courtesy of MuscleNerd:

1) SSH into your Apple TV2, the default password is “alpine” 2) Type “passwd” and enter a new password (if you haven’t already) 3) Type: echo “deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org ./” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list 4) Type: apt-get update 5) Type: apt-get install com.nito.nitoTV 6) Type: killall Lowtide 7) Enjoy 

In terms of jailbreaking, it’s best to use Pwnagetool as some commenters on the instructions have had less success with GreenPois0n.
