NitoTV: First App For Jailbroken Apple TV 2G

First Apple TV Jailbreak app

Couple of weeks back, developer Steven Troughton-Smith had figured out a way to install iOS apps on Apple TV but it was not possible to launch the installed iOS app as there is no application launcher in Apple TV.

Folks at nitoTV have developed a custom launcher to get their jailbreak app to work on a jailbroken Apple TV 2G.

This makes nitoTV’s simple weather app, the first third party app to run successfully on the new Apple TV.

Folks at nitoTV have tweeted that they plan to release a new version of their nitoTV app with weather and RSS feeds soon.

You can checkout the photos of the custom installer and the weather app below:

The Chronic Dev team and the iPhone Dev team have released greenpois0n and PwnageTool respectively to jailbreak the new Apple TV earlier in the week.

This opens up a whole host of possibilities. Please tell us which jailbreak apps or hacks is on your wish list for Apple TV in the comments.
