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.
It’s finally here! nitoTV, the “Cydia of Apple TV”, has just had its initial release. With a wide range of firmwares supported and a stable experience, it seems the tvOS jailbreak revolution has begun.
This guide will walk you through how to restore generations two through four of the Apple TV. The process comes in handy for upgrading and downgrading to signed firmwares, but also for restoring the device if it has problems or needs a fresh start.
In a series of tweets published on Friday, Kevin Bradley, also known as nitoTV, mentioned that although nothing is certain quite yet, there are chances that a jailbreak for tvOS 10.1 could be released in the near future. To prepare for the eventuality, nitoTV suggests to either restore or downgrade to tvOS 10.1.
Very little is known so far about that possible tvOS 10.1 jailbreak, but Bradley told iDB that the yalu102 jailbreak from Luca Todesco should be adaptable to tvOS.
Kevin Bradley just released an update to nitoTV a few hours ago, and we’ve already showed you guys how to install it once your Apple TV is jailbroken. Now Andrew took nitoTV for a quick spin and briefly walks you through some of the things you can install.
