dreadlok - August 14, 2015 at 1:28am just did this today. took a while for the installer to find and connect to my ATV but it worked. don't forget, this is done over your internet connection, no need to plug into your computer. directions are clear as day. installed Nito, went into Nito, scrolled down to Kodi, clicked, showed v14.2, which is the latest one to be compatible with AT2. everything works properly.

The first few links I found for Nito Installer for windows were dead (as others have found), I found a proper working link here: The method shown here works for getting NitoTV on your ATV2, however the xbmc will not install, probably because it is now migrated to KODI (previously XBMC). Just install Nito Installer to your PC, click Install Nito TV to Apple TV, then use the NITOTV app on the ATV2 to install KODI-ATV2 from there, works perfectly :)

So I have followed all directions I have never been asked for a password . when I attempt to upgrade my apple tv just resets and does nothing am I missing a step

If the NitoTV icon doesn't show up after the install, try to upgrade NitoTv. That worked for me.

Every time I try and download Nito Installer on to my Mac Desktop I get a 403 forbidden Error and it won't let me download it. It tells me I have to contact a site administer but it my own personal computer on my own home network. Can anyone help me with this problem?

Unfortunately, I cannot help you. However, I am having the same problem. Each time I try to download I get the same 403 forbidden error.
