Can't get past Verifying Apple TV Software

Windows 8
iTunes 12.1.071
Apple TV (A1378) - 5.3 (10B809)

I’ve searched for this topic in the forum, but couldn’t find one with the exact same issue.

I was having issues with my Apple TV, so I thought I’d re-jailbreak it, but it won’t finish the process. Seas0npass gets through every step, but in the final stages, it seems to hang with the status bar not getting to 100%:

  • Extracting Software (completes)
  • Verifying Apple TV software (completes)
  • Restoring Apple TV software (completes)
  • Verifying Apple TV software (status bar gets to 100% and then starts over, but keeps scrolling)

I noticed on the Seas0npass tutorial that on Verifying Apple TV software that it gets to 100%, starts over, but on the tutorial, it immediately goes to the confirmation that it has completed.

Finally got this working.

Hello, can you share how you got this working? I am having the same issue and can’t seem to find a solution.
