Hi there

I start Seas0nPass - it dowloads the Software - unzips it - and then comes the news: IPSW creation failed!

Any idea?

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?

Re: IPSW creation failed!

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 removed the Plugin as noted... looks like it came in with MS Office for Mac PowerPoint... restarted... no change... still eternally "Patching ramdisk"... i found another diskimage... NUMPlugin.bundle... same location... any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

Ok I deleted the NUMPlugin.bundle... a remnant of Norton Utilities... everything looks good... so there you go

Thanks for the help

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!

I was having the same problems- then I pluged the power in to my laptop (mac book pro) and it worked the first try.
