Kodi is probably the one package you’re most familiar with. Up until now, you could easily sideload Kodi on your Apple TV, but installing it via nitoTV is definitely an easier process. You can simply find Kodi in the ‘Featured Packages’ of nitoTV app, if not found, just click on the ‘Block Update’ to refresh the packages list

Also available via nitoTV are a custom YouTube browser called tuyu, emulators Mame and Provenance, a web browser, a Popcorn Time client, and a game of Pong.

    Thanks for the easy tutorial. I’m encountering a major issue though: The apps like PopcornTime, Kodi, etc I’ve sideloaded via Xcode with free dev account have expired after 7 days. I was going to resign them to get them running again, however the iTunes can’t seem to recognize my Apple TV. This is apparently a known issue that iTunes won’t detect a connected Apple TV 4 after a jailbreak. I’ve searched online only to find that everyone is having the same issue after a jailbreak and no fix has been shared so far. Others suggest to put the Apple TV on DFU mode (the only way to make iTunes recognize the device) however, I’m afraid I won’t be able to get out of DFU mode and be left with an only option to restore/update to an unjailbreakable tvOs. It’s not clear whether sideloading apps is possible while the device is on DFU mode. I don’t want to take a chance as this Apple TV is running fine as is (jailbroken). Do you by any chance have any solution for this? Thanks!

    nitoTV featured packages are obsolete as of 5-16-2016 latest version. PopcornTime is still on 1.4.3 as opposed to the current 6.3. And other apps as well. Is there any way to get those featured packages updated?
