Installation failure: unable to connect or maybe Apple Tv is behind a firewall

Hi, i installed Season Pass and that was fine.


But when i try to install ATV Flash i got an error saying that it was unable to connect or Apple TV has a firewall.


Apple TV firmware is the last (5.01), i am using a mac and the installer that i download from the download link when i payed for atvflash.


So i decided to restore Apple TV without JB, to try again.


No SeasonPass can’t recognize DFU mode.


aaaaaaaarghhhhhhhhh :frowning:

did u configure your atv prior to jailbreaking?

  1. Run the installer, if it takes more then 15 mins close it.
  2. Run the installer again, it will finish very quickly, but also leave a few packages in a broken state (Media Player will say install failed when you try to install it).
  3. SSH into your AppleTV and run these three commands:

killall -9 apt-get aptitude
rm -f /var/lib/apt/lists/lock
apt-get -y update (if it times out or takes a really long time, press CTRL+C and run the command again)

4) Reboot, install extras through Maintenance.


Had the same issue with firewall error. Used a cable connection instead of wifi and it worked fine.

Solved doing this:


  1. Restored apple TV with Apple default settings using iTunes.

  2. Connected to TV, adjusted settings.

  3. Run SeasonPass 

  4. Connected ATV to TV again, checked Firecore logo.

  5. Run ATV Flash WITHOUT USB cabe, just using wifi
