apt errors are big problems. NitoTV relies on apt-get to download and install apps. If you are missing important APT files, then you may have to restore and re-jailbreak, or just try running greenpois0n again. Try running dpkg --configure -a in a command prompt. If you get errors, then your jailbreak is broken, and you need to re-jailbreak. You may be able to just run greenpois0n again, but use Hardware Growler on your Mac, jailbreak, and wait for the Apple TV connected (Not DFU or Recovery) alert to appear before disconnecting the USB cable or exiting the greenpois0n app.

Did you make sure to leave the ATV connected for a minute or so after GreenPois0n said "Complete". Some additional processing occurs on the ATV that can take up to a minute to complete, this may be your problem. If so, a restore and re-jailbreak should fix it.

for $20, check out ATV Flash (Black). You can join their beta program and try out a semi-working web browser for the Apple TV, LastFM, and some other cool stuff. I recommend it, but since it's beta, it comes with a risk. its on the firecore website.
