We're currently looking into a handful of issues. In the meantime, you may simply try re-running Seas0nPass from the beginning.

Please try running the new 0.6.6 version of Seas0nPass. If the issue still persists send us the log located at ~/Library/Logs/SP_Debug.log.

Hy. I tried it again with 0.6.6. Same error.I've attached the whole log to this post.I also have a "ramdisk" mounted after running the IPSW creation. after every next run there is another "ramdisk" added.Even If I unmount the "ramdisk" after each run same error.To be sure. The AppleTV 2 does not have to be connected to the Mac while I create the modded IPSW or has it?

It seems this issue is being caused by an old plugin from the 'Virtual PC' application. Yes, your heard right Virtual PC - the Windows virtualization app from the PPC days. 

The fix is to simply remove the 'VirtualPCDiskImagePlugin.bundle' which can be found in one of two places:

~/Library/Plug-ins/DiskImages
/Library/Plug-ins/DiskImages

After removing the plugin restart your computer and re-run Seas0nPass.

Thanks – now it works! But I had to plug in the power chord for one second to enter the DFU mode. Otherwise no chance! Maybe my old MacBook Pro (2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) is a little bit weak with USB power ...

I am having the same problem, and do not have a folder called Plugin under the library folder. I checked most folders under the library folder and I couldn't find the file to delete.  Thanks for the help!

Great. Removing the VirtualPC Disk Image Bundles worked.But the iTunes install script failed until I changed my system language to English.It worked then, and all is well right now. Thank you very much Smile

Which version of Seas0nPass are you using?

Would you be able to send over your Seas0nPass log (located at: ~/Library/Logs/SP_Debug.log)

I am having the same issue.  When I get to the filesystem patch it says, "failed with reason"  I also do not have the Virtual PC plug-in nor can I find the plug-ins file within my Library.  Still trying to get the SeasOnPass to create the custom IPSW.  Please help.

I did exactly as you instructed. I removed the plug ins (put them in the trash and cleaned out the trash) then restarted my computer, but to no avail. Checked the folder and there is nothing in it but it still creates a ramdisk and says patching ramdisk and never goes any further.Also note that when I first start SeasOn it says "UI scripting disabled!" It asks if I want to enable or disable it. After that I click on the CreatIPSW, it then unzips the IPSW, then it starts the Patching ramdisk..., at that point the cancel is grayed out and the only way for me to exit is to go up and cancel the SeasonOn.So what do I do now?

I Had this problem last night, what I did was exit seasonpass and then shutdown the computer, to get rid of ramdisk. i then tried again and the same error. i simply then deleted it and redownloaded it and it worked the first time. idk if that helps anyone but seeing as these people at firecore never want to help anyone i thought i would try.

Its such a pain in the ass! Works with 4.3 but not with 4.4.2 - stuck at "Creating ramdisk". Is it really a Mac issue? Then it should be mentioned at the "Jailbraking instruction page" - I did spent a lot worthless time until I figured out that it simply does not work with the Mac. As I want to have the 4.4 features I will have to wait *grmbl*

I tried and tried and it still does not get out of Patching ramdisk.  I removed the Virtual PC plugin, trashed it, quit SeasOnPass, trashed that, restarted the computer, downloaded SeasOnPass again, unzipped it, clicked Create IPSW and it still gets stuck at Patching ramdisk.  I have a 3.33 GHz Intel core 2 Duo IMAC running 10.6.8.  What do I do now or will it not work with a Mac which makes it useless.. I just bought my AppleTV and only did so when I discovered aTV flash.  I will have wasted over $135 (including a micro USB cable)  So this had better work or i will be one pissed off customer.

Hi Everyone,

I was experiencing the IPSW creation failed too.  What I found the problem to be was that I was running Seas0nPass from an external drive and also the IPSW file was on an external drive.  Something wonky about the permissions when the files are not located on the "ROOT" drive that MacOS is installed on.  I don't know why.

Anyway short story is that I copied both the Seas0nPass and IPSW to my desktop on my MacMini and ran the process from there.  Everything worked perfectly the first time I tried it.

I've asked the FireCore team to update the Seas0nPass instructions to suggest putting a note in the jailbreak instructions to put the Seas0nPass binary and IPSW file on the same drive that MacOS resides on to prevent permission issues.

Cheers!

In response to the last post, both Seas0nPass and the IPSW file are on the desktop of my root drive.  Has anyone using a Mac been able to get past "Patching ramdisk"?????

Hi.  Just tried using Seas0nPass for the first time last night.  I got stuck on the "Patching ramdisk" issue.  I tried your suggestion in the quote below, and a few other things, but to no avail.   Got new any ideas for me???

Thanks,

Jim.

Easy Jailbreak For APPLE TV2 Black 
Hi everyone this worked for me the first time I tried it
(KEEP APPLE TV POWER CORD PLUGGED IN WHERE YOU WANT TO USE IT AND DON’T UNPLUG DURING THIS PROCEDURE)
1 Download the latest 4.4.3 (9A405l) IPSW from Seas0nPass
2 Connect Apple TV to your computer with an extended USB cable long enough to reach where you will use Apple TV 
3 Plug in Apple TV power cord
4 Open Seas0nPass and select Create IPSW while holding down Option Key
   Seas0nPass will look for latest IPSW 4.4.3 (9A405l) you downloaded in step 1
5 Seas0nPass will complete the jailbreak and restore process automatically through iTunes
6 After the restore is complete follow the steps for performing a Tethered Boot.
7 Unplug USB and Connect HDMI before the light stops blinking (no rush just don’t unplug power cable)
8 Complete set up choices Language, wi-fi, Home Sharing etc etc
9 Launch latest aTV Flash aTV Flash (black) 1.0 Now Available
Please let me know if this is helpful because I had tried every possible suggested procedure for several weeks only getting error messages so I tried my own Idea and this one worked for me on the first try.
