Tethered Boot Tutorial

Some AppleTV software versions require a tethered boot. This means that it must be connected to a computer for a brief moment during startup.

PLEASE NOTE – Disconnect your AppleTV for at least a minute after restoring in itunes before starting this process or it wont work correctly.

1.  Open seasOnpass again and select the “boot tethered option”
