nitoTV is burning the midnight oil and has tweeted a new repository from which you can grab the first GUI-based AppleTV2 app (technically a Lowtide plugin), which currently has weather and RSS functionality. To use it, do the following: 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 Source: http://twitter.com/#!/nitotv UPDATE Hello World 2 Guide: (Disclaimer: This is a guide written as I worked these steps out for myself, It worked for me and it should hopefully work for you! but I can't make any promises something wont screw up along the way.) As for the Hello World project, you need the latest version of XCode then do this: 0) Make sure your Apple TV is turned on and connected to the network!!! It should be named the default "Apple TV" for convenience, resulting in a hostname of: apple-tv.local 1) Change the drop-down build menu to "Release | atvTwo | x86_64" 2) Fire up Terminal (On your local machine) 3) Type: "cd /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/" 4) Type: "sudo ln -s iPhoneOS4.1.sdk/ iPhoneOS4.0.sdk" 5) Enter your password, as prompted and close Terminal 6) Expand the "Targets" node in the left-hand pane of XCode -- In theory this step should work: 7) Right click "thePlugin" and choose "Build" -- But I had to: 8) Open up Terminal again 9) "cd ~/Downloads/helloWorld/" (This step may vary for you) 8) "sh build.sh" -- At this point the script will SSH into your AppleTV and attempt to install the frappliance - Frontrow/Lowtide plugin. 9) Wheee! If you are prompted to continue connecting, answer "yes" 10) Enter your AppleTV password (Default is "alpine") 11) Wheee! Enter your password again. 12) If you're watching your AppleTV on a display, the screen should go blank as Lowtide gets killed and begins to restart. If it hangs on "waiting for network services" for a while, just hammer some keys on your remote- seemed to work for me. 13) Enjoy your stock hello world app. And please now make something great for the rest of us!
