If you have a jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad then you know first hand how easy it is to install various tweaks to your iOS device. The reason it is so easy to install tweaks to your iOS device is because of the package manager and installer – Cydia. Essentially Cydia is the unofficial version of the Apple App Store, allowing a jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to install software not fit for distribution in the official App Store.
For those with a jailbroken Apple TV you have probably realized there is no substitute for Cydia for installing unofficial software like XBMC or NitoTV. To install this software on your Apple TV you are required to use SSH or Terminal commands. The folks over at JailbreakAppleTV however, have finally developed an application for jailbroken Apple TV users that will make installing 3rd party software a breeze.
This application is called Nito Installer and in a few clicks you will be able to easily install NitoTV, XBMC and popular XBMC addons like Transfer Popular and Transfer Custom. For advanced users there is also an area to enter option SSH commands.
If you don’t currently have a jailbroken Apple TV 2G then you should follow one of our guides to take advantage of this great new tool. For those of you who are already Jailbroken you can download Nito Installer from the iJailbreak Downloads section.
We will have a how to guide on using Nito Installer in the near future, but until that time please leave any further questions or thoughts in the comments. Also, on a side note, only a Mac OS X version is available. I have emailed the developers to see if there is plans for a Windows version, and will update you when I get a reply.

this thing rocks you guys kick so much ass! thanks for saving me hours on installs and redo’s! seriously, thanks
I have the nito software on my apple tv (2) but the xmbc wont show up or load! any idea why?
I have the same problem as Alexa it gives the green tick to say complete but nothing on ATV2 when you get the green tick to say xbmc installed
I also experienced the same situation as Alexa and Hanlonmic with the green tick. I even tried removing the program and reloading it and even updating it. However, still no XBMC icon has appeared.
