Unfortunately iTunes 11 has broken some of the nice automation scripting in the current version of Seas0nPass.
An updated version of Seas0nPass is in the works, but for now a workaround for using Seas0nPass with the new version of iTunes can be found below.
Run Seas0nPass normally through where the script error occurs.
Locate the newly created IPSW file (named AppleTV2,1_5.0.2_9B830_SP_Restore.ipsw) On a Mac this will be located in the ~/Library/Application Support/Seas0nPass folder. On a PC it can be found in the /Libraries/Documents/Seas0nPass folder.
Open iTunes, and select the Apple TV in the lefthand sidebar.
Manually select the firmware file that was created by Seas0nPass. This is done by holding Option and clicking the Restore button (Mac) or holding Shift and clicking the Restore button (PC).
It does’nt default to the location. Also the library folder is a hidden file type when you go thru the itunes manual restore. I did indeed make a folder of my own and copy paste the ISPW, Got it all to work. thanks!
Sorry none of the above works for me. The SP ipsw file is a no show in my folder. Wish it was there visible or invisible… Attached is a screen shot. I tried downloading and installing an older version of itunes. Same problem occured it seems the issue of file patching is prior to itunes???
Checked the SP Package Contents to see if I could ipsw unzip the file myself to access it. I could not find it specifically.
Does this workaround work for itunes 11 for sure? can someone confirm this? I made a bad mistake by upgrading to itunes 11 yesterday and didnt like it at all. I have to figure out how to change the view back to the old look. once i do that i will try jbking with itunes 11. I tried it a few times yesterday and it kept getting stuck on scripting. i will try the work around today… any moer advice would be great… thanks
Yes this work around works on Itunes 11. Im running OSX Mountain Lion with Itunes 11. What you need to know though is when the script error comes up it pops up the ISPW window in finder. Do NOT use that one when you have to manual restore in Itunes. You need to find it under the location shown in the work around post above. I could not see it in the finder folder when I did the manual restore, but when I opened the finder folder thru OSX I could see it so I just copied it to a easy to find folder for ease.
Hope this is not confusing, Im not to good at typing computer instructions.
Oh sorry. In MAC “Finder” is Mac version of windows explorer. Sounds like a windows issue. Not surprising. I work on a Windows workstation for my job and always get errors. At home on my Mac smooth sailing. Not to get on that debate but it might be some windows coding. I would try reboot then try again
I did this ( with power cord in - to get in dfu mode - and left power cord in -and when stuck on script bargraph i did a shift/restore and located the new seasons pass ipsw and did the update. it ran through most of it but got stuck on the final stage saying either updating apple tv or restoring apple tv… and just stayed there… i left it for about 10 minutes and eventually got the 1602 error - finaly just unplugged it and tried it and it was jail bkn with the firecore logo on the settings icon. and all works…
i did not get the message at end saying " your apple tv has been restored "
very strange… is this normal to get the error and then it works fine???
