Problem trying to install XBMC on Apple TV 2 (SSH Error)
#1
Just got my Apple TV 2 and jailbroken this afternoon with seas0n pass.
Got the little logo now its back connected to TV so know this was successful.

Been following this guide:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW...Apple_TV_2

Am on windows, and have downloaded putty.
I've entered [email protected]_IP
then asks for password, which I enter alpine
Good so far

And am prompted with
Apple-TV:~ root#


I then type in the first command
Apple-TV:~ root# apt-get install wget

Press enter, but then am greeted with this message:
E: Malformed line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkardtv.list (dist)
E: The list of sources could not be read.


It comes up with this message similarly when trying to get Plex and NitoTV.
What am I doing wrong. (Apple TV is not plugged into laptop whilst doing this.

Thanks. Hope this is in the right place, be gentle, new to all this and my first post Blush

by doing this maybe ?

Code:
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list
touch /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list
echo "deb http://apt.awkwardtv.org/ stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/awkwardtv.list

Sorry really new to all this SSH stuff!

What do you mean borked?

Do I just log in then copy each command you posted in post #4?

borked = broken

Yes, just copy those commands from Jester.

One at a time then pressing enter?

Then do I just follow the original guide again?

Sorry for all the amateur questions Blush

Its coming up:

rm: cannot remove `/etc/apt/sources,list.d/awkwardtv.list': No such file or directory

It's a period between "souces" and "list" not a comma.

Hi Guys,

All new to appletv and xbmc.

I jailbroke the box with seasonpass

Connected to the box over wifi using putty

Then put the first command in to install xbmc and I get this error

E: Malformed line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbmc.list (dist)
E: The list of sources could not be read.
