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 ;)

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!

I don't think the current version of GP install OpenSSH by default. you need to use Pwange tool and build a custom .ipws to restore that already have OpenSSH (and maybe apt-get).

According to DHowett (he knows more about this apt stuff than me) you need to reboot your appletv or re-jailbreak.

Can someone post custom apple tv firmware, and can I use it to restore my apple tv? I don't have Mac, that's why I can't make myself custom firmware.

Man i have it on my desktop, but i think you need pwnage tool, To get the apple tv in dfu mode, For some reason this version of pwnage tool has to put your device in dfu mode or itunes wont restore it.

I can put apple tv in dfu manually.

I just found some custom ios 4.1 for apple tv.
Size of ipsw is 247.4mb. Can you confirm me that this is correct size?
