Seasonpass : Process failed with reason: Filesystem patches failed! ... Had to use iR

on 10.7.5.

Seasonpass is not working. Somebody posted a fix on seasonpass's forum. But i have no clue what it means or how to do it. Anybody have an easier fix for this? Unable to jailbreak. This is the supposed fix (can somebody simply this) : I've done a little debugging and found the reason for my "Filesystem patches failed!!" problem. According to SP_Debug.log, the step that fails is:

2013-02-13 18:12:58.820 dbHelper[10860:707] extracting evasi0n.tgz to /Volumes/Brighton10B144b.K66OS
2013-02-13 18:12:58.849 dbHelper[10860:707] tar fxpz /Users/apena/tmp/Seas0nPass.app/Contents/Resources/bundles/AppleTV2,1_5.2_10B144b.bundle/evasi0n.tgz -C /Volumes/Brighton10B144b.K66OS
2013-02-13 18:12:59.701 dbHelper[10860:707] returnStatus: 1
2013-02-13 18:12:59.702 dbHelper[10860:707] coreFileInstallation failed!! bail!
2013-02-13 18:13:11.243 dbHelper[10860:707] FAIL!! ABORT!

So I mounted /private/tmp/tk/rw.dmg manually and tried to tar the evasi0n.tgz patch into it:

$ tar fxpz /Users/apena/tmp/Seas0nPass.app/Contents/Resources/bundles/AppleTV2,1_5.2_10B144b.bundle/evasi0n.tgz -C /Volumes/Brighton10B144b.K66OS
var/evasi0n/: Cannot extract through symlink var
var/evasi0n/amfi.dylib: Cannot extract through symlink var

var/lib/dpkg/info/com.evad3rs.evasi0n.postrm: Cannot extract through symlink var
var/lib/dpkg/info/com.evad3rs.evasi0n.prerm: Cannot extract through symlink var
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

Mac-de-Alfre:tk apena$ ls -lad /Volumes/Brighton10B144b.K66OS/var
lrwxr-xr-x 1 apena staff 11 Feb 7 21:48 /Volumes/Brighton10B144b.K66OS/var -> private/var

So the problem is that /var is a symlink in the rw.dmg image. I was able to sidestep this problem by recreating the evasi0n.tgz tar file with the var directory inside private.
