    So I just jailbroke my apple tv using greenpois0n rc6. Went pretty smooth. Rebooted and installed XBMC. Planning on configuring it later.

    Thing is I was playing around with NitoTV and the apps and installed the mainmenuweather and mainmenusslideshow app but I dont' know how to configure or remove them. It shows weather from some location I'm nowhere near.

    I'm pretty sure i need to SSH into the device right? Is there a good place to read up on all this or a place with resources?

    I'm loving the jailbreak so far and it is really going to open up my media using XBMC.
    Thanks!

    To ssh into the device, open Terminal and type:
    ssh root@XXX where XXX is the IP address of your ATV2. You'll be asked for a password, and if you haven't changed it yet, it's alpine.

    To uninstall apps, type apt-get remove XXX where XXX is the name of the app.

    When you're done with the session, just type exit and hit enter.

    Hope this helps!
