Do not follow the prior posts instructions unless you want to break nitoTV.

Here is the proper way to update or downgrade Kodi based on these nightlies:

http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/darwin/tvos/

ssh into your aTV4 for example (latest nightly as of today):

ssh [email protected]

default password = alpine

wget http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/darwi...b-tvos.deb

nitoHelper -i ~/kodi-20160814-d037cf7-yab-tvos.deb

Thats it....enjoy Smile

Mark as solved or use this as a sticky!

Awesome! finally... Thanks heaps man.

1. ssh root
2. wget http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/darwi...b-tvos.deb
3. nitoHelper -i ~/kodi-20160824-fc0347d-yab-tvos.deb

If you read my output that is the same command I just did.. Instead of using ~/ for the root folder location I just specified it was in the same folder. I already did the wget and downloaded the file to my root folder and into the temp because I didn't want the deb in my root folder.


I also tried ~/ but that shouldn't matter.

guys - the installation scripts in the atv4 deb file is a 1:1 copy from our ios installation. The fact that i never had nor currently have a jailbroken atv4 means i have no clue what the partition layout of an actual appletv4 is. I am pretty sure its wrong to try to install in the root partition. But without me having a jailbroken AppleTV4 there is no way to fix the install scripts in the deb file to do the proper thing for atv4. nitoHelper obviously simply runs the installation scripts in the deb (same what dpkg -i does on ios).

So the message that the package is to big for the partition is pretty correct for sure. I just can't do anything against it because i am blind so to say Smile (no way for me to look at this stuff with a sandboxed stock appletv4).

I had a feeling that was the reason, that's why I also tried the /tmp folder.... Hopefully someone with a jailbroken ATV4 can help Smile

I feel this thread should not be in "Important Threads" because it is not solved. Correct me if I am mistaken but for all the people who said solved where did you install it other then the root folder?

use this folder
var/mobile/Library/nitoTV/Downloads
This folder is what nitotv uses to download and run the apps
