Ok Finally I was able to get the SeasOnpass JB and installed XMBC through NitoTv. Everything looks good. I didn’t do anything different. Just deleted all the SeasOnpass files and restarted the steps all over again. Patience…patience…patience…is the only difference otherwise followed the same instruction given here. I did not connect the power of the apple TV during the installation as suggested by others. The itunes didn’t pop up for me after the Apple TV went to DFU mode. In fact I was asked to open the itunes and choose Restore. This instruction popped up as soon as the device went to the DFU mode. I guess for some of you the Itunes is opening automatically but not for me. This step was not there but the window that pop up has clear step by step instruction. I actually tried this procedure 5-6 times frustrated and about to give up. I started all over again starting from downloading the zip file. So my advice for others is again be patient and good luck. Btw, my setup is windows 7 if you are wondering.
i was having heaps of trouble too, all i did was buy a new cable and it worked first go.
