Hello,

I need some serious help. I bought a jailbroken Apple TV 2 from my buddy. It was awesome. I used XBMC frequently and really enjoyed it. On the main menu showed: nitoTV and XBMC among the other standard menu options.

For some stupid reason, i went into nitoTV and clicked install software. I went down to XBMC-ATV2 where it said "installed". I clicked this and then accidentally clicked "install" and it started doing something.

Anyway, after it finished it went back to the main menu and XBMC no longer showed. It now shows up as "CFBundleName". BUT, XBMC shows under this. When I click it at the bottom it says: Script Failed!: script.common.plugin.cache.

Now none of my add-ons work in "Videos". I tried installing again from nitoTV but it doesn't work.

Can someone help me out? Oh and please act like you're talking to a small child or a golden retriever. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this stuff

Smile

Well first use the search and you will find lots info on what you need to do.

but in few steps here it is.

SSH into your box ( putty is nice SSH )
user = root
pass = alpine

write this in the console

apt-get remove org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

and then

apt-get remove com.nito.nitotv


then

apt-get update

and then

apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2

if you want you can then afterwards install nitoTV ( not that its needed )

apt-get install com.nito.nitotv

Hope this helps

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW...Apple_TV_2

when you open the program putty you will be asked to enter an ip address of you apple TV

put it in an select open.

then enter you username and password and follow my directions.

If this fails I am afraid you need to educate yourself a litle bit more before you take on this task, by reading more and studying the WIKI

I have the same problem Whatspoppin had, but any command I try I get the same prompt:
E: Could not get lock/var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (35: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
or sometimes that last line is replaces by "Unable to lock the download directory".

I tried everything you suggested, but I still get the same message. I won't copy everything here, but here is a sample of the script:

Apple-TV:~ root# apt-get install org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
org.xbmc.xbmc-atv2
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 13 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
E: Could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (35: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the download directory

If anyone has any clue of what I could try, I would really appreciate. Thanks!
