windows nito installer

Great news today for Windows users with a jailbroken Apple TV2. The popular jailbreak tool known as nito Installer, which was released for the Mac platform back in August, is now available on Microsoft’s OS.

Like its counterpart, the Windows version of nito Installer allows you to easily install XBMC — a free, open source media player application — and other tools to your jailbroken ATV with just a couple of clicks…

You see, unlike on the iPhone or iPad, there’s never really been an easy way to install jailbreak apps on the ATV. You had to use SSH or Terminal commands to install anything. And that’s where nito Installer comes in.

Using nito Installer, you can now install apps like nitoTV or XBMC to your jailbroken Apple TV with the click of the mouse — literally. You can also use it to easily add XBMC plugins and run custom commands.

If your ATV isn’t currently jailbroken, check out our step-by-step guide on how to do it. If you’re hesitant, we also have a section that covers all of the benefits of jailbreaking the Apple TV, and why you’ll want to do it.

Otherwise, feel free to go ahead and grab the Windows-flavored nito Installer from our Downloads page. Using it is pretty straightforward, but if you’re looking for help, our tutorial for the Mac version should suffice.

        Not sure if trolling..

        ATV3 is not jailbreakable what I know, and probably never will be unless someone find a bootrom exploit. And probably not much work is done at the moment. Most is done for the new iPhone5 and iPad. But we can always hope.

        I can’t tell if you just suck at trolling or you really understood wrong….


  • It’s pretty easy to use, I have it on my iPad and so long as I’m on the same network as the ATV then it’s no more than a click or two.

    XMBC rocks, it’s pretty good on its own installed on the iPad or even my old HTC One X..
