nitoTV allows users to install tweaks and unsigned apps to their Apple TVs, much like Cydia does on iOS. After a long incubation period, nitoTV for jailbroken tvOS is now available. We give you a glimpse inside, along with our initial impressions.

A lot has happened in the last couple of months, with a proliferation of tools unlike anything we’ve seen before. It can be hard to stay on top of the current situation and to discern the important differences between the offerings, so we’ve rounded it all up for you.

This “semi-jailbreak” beta cleverly brings you some of the benefits of a full jailbreak, without tackling the daunting task directly.
