The first few links I found for Nito Installer for windows were dead (as others have found), I found a proper working link here: http://nito-installer.software.informer.com/download/ 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 :)

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