All iPhone 3.1.2 Jailbreak Tool blackra1n for Windows Released
George Hotz, the man who brought you the jailbreak tool purplera1n, has once again impressed us all and this time it's an all iPhone 3.1.2 jailbreak only solution, blackra1n. Mac users need not apply as blackra1n is currently a Windows only application.
blockquote>So, what is blackra1n? blackra1n is a 30 second ALL device 3.1.2 jailbreak. Even the ipt3, but the ipt3 is tethered. In order to boot it, just rerun blackra1n. As far as donations go, they are much appreciated, but not until after blackra1n works for you. I never ask for donations before the tool is released.
It should be noted that 3G and 3GS unlockers should still avoid updating to 3.1.2 using iTunes as blackra1n is not capable of unlocking your device. By updating you will update your firmware baseband to a version that can not be downgraded at this time. If you are looking to unlock you need to follow the Dev Teams tools and instructions.
TiPb takes no responsibility for your jailbreak outcome. Need help? Check out our iPhone Jailbreak and Unlock forum.

Your source for all things Apple
mine did that too the first time. just hold down the power and home button with it plugged in until you see the apple logo and just wait for the phone to fully restart and hit make it ra1n again! thats what i had to do and wow was it fast after that!!
For iPhone 3G and 3GS - you will not be able to unlock - correct?
DOES THIS UNLOCK AND JAILBREAK THE 2G ON 3.1.2???????

@blackra1ndidnotwork try to disable Bonjour service - that seems to be helping some people get it
Also I am trying to using Appulous, but no apps are downloading, any suggestions?
You guy's need to wait for the DEV-TEAM release.
Even if it does work you have to ask yourself one question: "Would you want a picture of this butt ugly dude on your iphone"? I didn't think so !!!
As for all of you asking about unlocks, etc, RTFM!
try taking 32 seconds out of your life and read the article...
Well done George. This isn't nearly up to par of your other projects.
in case your wondering about the o2 carrier its because im from ireland thanks again
It literally took 30 seconds. Then it was done. Afterwards you will notice the blackra1n icon on your device. Open it up and install cydia or one of the other two.
This really could not have been any easier.
Also, AVG DID NOT detect anything wrong with the windows app. So please don't go starting virus rumors about blackra1n.
A lot of the problems and questions that people are having would be solved if you would just take five or ten minutes and just read.
Again, this is just my experence with blackra1n on a 3.1 OTB iPhone.
Purplera1n was the BEST jailbreak tool ever released and I'll bet this one is great as well...I'll be using it as soon as I get home.
wen i use this on my ipod touch 2g, it gets stuck at entering recovery
Easily Jailbroke my iPhone 3G 3.1.2 on my PC (Windows 7 32-bit)
blackra1n is NOT a virus when you download from the Geo's site directly .. only stupid people will download from another source.
mine does the same thing, ive tried probably 20+ times,
Thanks in advance :)
Blackrain takes jailbreaking to the mainstream, because it requires no special work. Plug in, execute, click button, done!
what did you do different this time around. still not getting it to work.
i didnt do anything different, i think i had itunes open even, it just worked this time and ive tried it over 30 times, i then installed cydia and icy and rock or whatever and now i have a cydia problem it says because i installed icy, so if you get it working maybe dont install icy
Make it so!
Great Jailbreak. Don't Fuck it up with a creepy picture of yourself.
i JB my 3gs ( 3.1 - baseband 5.11.07 - bootload 6.04 )
jb in 20s but this tool is not "real" JB, he fool all of us. After jb we should easy access to file system , right ? It fast but useless, Thanks, but no thanks
after jb i use pc suite, iphone browser access to file system, it said your iphone not jb. what's up GeoHotz ? all he did is put cydia on iphone , nothing thing esle. jb mean you can install any apps, or modify file system . Dev-team do better job.
what a loser Geoge Hotz
i had to re jb it because cydia fucked up said it was because of icy, anyways, this time i did it i had itunes open and it worked on the 5th try, i dunno if thats what needs to be done
Thats the only downside you cant customise.
No go on parallels...
2 different windows machines=stuck in recovery mode
READ THE GUIDE!!!
How can you fail this?
it clearly states in multiple places that this only works for 3.1.2. Don't blame Geohot and all of his awesomeness for your inability to read.
iPhone 3GS white 16gig - woot!! 3.1 - prolly will do 3.12 later today.
Make sure iTunes isnt running.
make it rain
That simple. Works great no probs.
But anyway, How does this not work for everyone. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.
Click Make it rain.
Plug in iphone to usb.
Jailbroken after reboot.
To everyone having problems. This is my first time jailbreaking and I had no problems. What's your excuse?
I will agree with Garbage on one thing though. Jailbreaking on the 3G does make it laggy. It is perfect on the 3GS though!
Just my 2 cents.
As for me, I'm still rocking 3.0 on my 3GS and not chancing an upgrade when my 3.0 jailbreak (from purplera1n) is working flawlessly.
I will continue to use 3.0 until Apple really makes it where I have to have the new OS. Until then, why upgrade? I laugh at people that did and lost all there JB. Luckily now, blackra1n has arrived.
I agree with 3G 3.0 was indeed very laggy when jailbroken through the dev team. This was actually what encourged me to go out and get a 3GS. The 3GS on purplera1n works great with zero lag.
As for the battery life: be wary of what apps you install from cydia. Blackra1n/purplera1n doesn't affect your battery. It's certain apps you install from cydia that may reduce battery life.
1) Plug in iPhone via USB cable
2) Launch iTunes and minimize it
3) Run Blackra1n
4) Click the "make it rain" button
5) iTunes will give an error box, press 'ok'
6) Wait for the retarded pic and reboot
JUST MAKE SURE YOU RESTORE TO A OLD BACK-UP THAT ISNT A BACK-UP FROM WHEN YOUR IPHONE WAS JAILBROKEN. UR AN IDIOT IF EVEN DO UR BACK UPS WHEN UR PHONE IS JAILBROKEN. EVEN THOUGH U HAVE A PHONE THAT ISNT JAILBROKEN.... SOME PARTS OF THE JAILBREAK WILL REMAIN ON THE PHONE VIA THE BACK-UP, WHICH MAY CAUSE THE NEXT UPGRADE TO NO FUNCTION PROPERLY. IF U DO NOT HAVE A REALLY OLD BACK-UP OR ONE THAT WASNT MADE WHEN UR PHONE WAS JAILBROKEN U MAY HAVE TO JUST "START A NEW PHONE" BUT REMEMBER AS ALWAYS.... WRITE DOWN ANY NEW PHONE NUMBERS YOU GET OR ANYTHING IMPORTANT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW. YOU SHOULD NEVER EVER EVER RELY ON COMPUTERS TO HOLD ALL YOUR INFORMATION. THEY ARE MACHINES AND DO BREAK.
1- your iphone is working phone (locked or unlocked does not matter) if it stuck at any stage, u have to restore to fresh os before jb
2- turn off iphone - open itunes (the iphone does not conect to pc at this time)
3- while iphone is off conect to pc the phone will auto turn on( itunes will ask for active or whatever just egnore any message from iTunes)
4- now itunes and iphone can communicate ( all jb software alway borrow conect line between iphone and itunes)
5- now run blackra1n and let it run by itseft do not hit any button until iphone complete jb ( about less than 30s)
It works for iPhone 3gs 3.1 3gs 3.1.2 and 1g 3.1 ( if you firmware 5.11.07 you jb and install cydia. That's all it can do for now. Now you can install cydia. It can not unlock iPhone , or install app through pcsuite or iphonebrowser , just cydia
my system : pc win vista sp2
iPhone : 1g os 3.01 / 3gs os 3.1.2 / 3g os 3.1
all test 100% work
If you phone had been previously jailbroken, you may still have data on your phone that will prevent you from doing this update.
i had downloaded "Extended Preferences" from Cydia. In that program I changed where it says AT&T at the top so it would say NATE. Now when 3.1 came out i accidentally upgraded and lost my jailbreak, BUT my name NATE was still at the top, even though i had no cydia or anything and my cracked apps wouldnt work.
So i am saying even though you cant see it you may have a corrupted file or just something that will prevent you running Blackra1n correctly.
Like i said in my previous listing..... restore from a back-up from when your phone wasn't jailbroken or just start a new phone and start from scratch.
And remember as always....
Be your own computer.....
WRITE DOWN ANY NEW PHONE NUMBERS YOU GET OR ANYTHING IMPORTANT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW. YOU SHOULD NEVER EVER EVER RELY ON COMPUTERS TO HOLD ALL YOUR INFORMATION. THEY ARE MACHINES AND DO BREAK
If this helped post a comment
ITS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING
Read. If you upgraded to anything higher than 3.0.1 through an official iTunes update, your baseband is updated and cannot be unlocked (as of yet).
@everyone else with dumb questions.
If you cannot handle the process of reading everything about something, you probably shouldn't do it. Restore your phone and go back to unjailbroken life. You clearly do not have the mental capacity to handle this jailbreak process.
It works. If it doesn't work for you, YOU are doing something wrong. Not the program. The code doesn't change. The enduser does.
Restore your phone. If you can, restore to backup. If not, start fresh.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, google is your friend.
dev-team does better job but too slow
Try restoring (I know pain in the ...) then re ra1n, then install only cydia. Then winterboard. That worked for me. Seems like cydia needs to be installed 1st.
this is for everyone who has problems jailbreaking ipod touch 3g.
BlackRa1n works 100% on all other models both iphone and ipod. I've just confirmed it but before made a full restore and setting it up as a new phone then JB then backup restore.
I've been doing some research and here are some things I've learned:
- Blackra1n works amazing for most people.
- The ipt3g 8gig is apparently NOT supported. Geohotz was not aware that there was an 8gig.
- If you are trying to jailbreak any of the other ipod/phones and it still isn't working, do some good old fashioned Google searching and plenty of people have posted detailed instructions on how to fix your problems.
- I have not been able to jailbreak my ipt3g 8gig, but just wait a bit longer for Greenpois0n. I personally am not go to hop on the train to brick town tonight.
every iphone / pc are difference
when you fail jb the first time your file system already broken. you need to restore to the fresh os
-> put att simcard in the phone let itunes go to active page
-> so iphone can fuction (not at emergency screen)
-> reboot iphone once time
-> run blackra1n
i hope this have (i did like this with my 3gs 3.1 , it works. after that i upgrade to 3.1.2 and did same thing, it works again)
had to restore 4 times . Closed iTunes stuck in recovery until I just had to
restore I'm on windows xp ran blackra1n in sp2 mode made it rain then got stuck on in recovery screen. When I tried again it was stuck again in recovery when I held down home and power I did not see geos face just recovery screen from iTunes. On my last attempt it claimed it was done
but my phone was still in recovery mode. So now im back at stock apps on
my phone lost my jailbreak and am not at all happy! Any suggestions :(
I will try again when I have my wi-fi set up .. for now i will just enjoy my music and music videos ;)
i keep getting the "blackra1n.exe-Entry Point not found"
message : The procedure entry point sqlite3preparev2 could not be lovated in the dynamic link library SQLite3.dll.:: If anyone knows how i can fix this please get back to me :)
I'm assuming that if I update to 3.1.2 in iTunes all of my apps and contacts will remain on the phone.
If I then run blackra1n will all the stuff already on the phone stay on it, or do you end up with a fully reset phone with blackra1n installed on it?
Sync phone making sure you have transferred all purchase you made on your phone to iTunes (that's just a precaution). Upgrade to 3.1.2, all aps and contacts will be fine. Sync again. Then run blackra1n. All aps and contacts will still be fine. Done in that order the worst that can happen is that you have to restore the phone.
put blackrain in my c file uncheck all the boxes under
compatibility mode uncheck all of the compatibility options and then run it
it should work . My next question is can you install rock your iphone and cydia at the same time with no conflict? or should it be one or the other ?
If you have an issue, just restore and re-do. That's the best advice I can give after successfully doing 2 3gs.
Worked for me. Good luck! :)
forget blackra1n. Try new pwnage 3.1.4 from devteam
Go to funkymonkeyspace.com for instruction
I never try but I trust devteam better
follow the steps on my site EXACTLY and you will be good to go, but you have to do the exact button hold/release sequence/timing as this IS KEY.
Here is the site: http://ping.fm/5knkP
Mine didn’t work and was doing the same as you guys until I did the exact sequence of holding both buttons, then releasing the powerbutton when the apple logo appeared while still holding the home button, then releasing the home button after the GeoHot background appears.
If you do the exact steps, in order listed above, you should have no problem.
Geohotz (George Hotz) was the first person to unlock & jb an iPhone first gen so being all like "HURR WAIT FOR DEV-TEAM DONT TRUST THIS GUY LAWL" is pretty damn stupid. ;)http://iphonejtag.blogspot.com/
Read up. ;)
Also, blackra1n works fine if you're not a complete fuckwit. <3
the first does not mean the best. You should ask yourseft why you do use redsn0w to jb your iPhone ? Why you need ultrasn0w to unlock ?
Don't lie to yourseft .
So, I just Jailbroke my Iphone 3.1.2 16GB 3G. What I did was actually told to me by Ikheafe so thanks to him.
Plug up your iPhone
Turn your Iphone 3g OFF
click make it ra1n
Hold down power and home
As soon as you see the Apple logo release power BUT HOLD HOME for at least 20 seconds
Do not release home earlier than 20 seconds or until you see GeoHot appear on your Iphone.
(If this doesn't work then try again, hold down the power and home until your phone shuts off. Close BlackRa1n and try again. As they say rinse, wash, repeat.)
Once you’ve done that, you should have a pop-up on your computer saying Jailbreak is done. Wait for the phone to reboot. Once the phone reboots you will see Blackra1n icon on your phone.
Hope it helps you like it did me!!!!!!!!!!!!
First it says connect the i phone to itunes then it goes into a dim black screen any help or anything else i can try
All the advise here i have followed but still no go :(
3GS 32gig worked perfectly.
ipod touch 2nd gen 8gig, again worked perfectly.
ipod touch 3rd gen 8 gig, tried three times but no go.
All upgraded to 3.1.2 first
Click let it rain and it starts, then the touch just turns off after seeing the recovery screen.
Have to do a recovery in itunes to get it back.
Have tried with itunes on or off but havent tried turning off the bonjour service though....
i need my themes people
dont need an unlock just a jailbreak. please reply
"Been messing about with my 3G 8gb for about half an hour trying to jailbreak it lol.. followed everyones suggestions and nothing worked... THEN i cracked it...
Do all the update stuff first then unplug your iphone and reboot it. compatibility mode your blackra1n, RUN blackra1n and click "make it rain"... THEN and only then plug your iphone back into the computer... was over and done in 30 seconds, popped up wit the message telling me my iphone would be jailbroken once it had reboot and the image of the curly haired lad with the wave of iphones popped onto the screen... it rebooted and now its done.
In addition I stopped all Antivirus services..
Confirming what CT63366 said. When blackra1n gets your iPhone to reboot to go into recovery mode, remove the USB cable. Then when its on recovery mode (i.e. USB cable pointing to iTunes on iPhone screen), plug it back in and see Geohot's face on your iPhone appear. :-)
mike on 10/12 is a life-saver.
Here is how i did...hope it'd help somebody,
Windows 7 RTM 64bit, iPhone 3G 16GB ---
Tried all possible ways as everybody said...pressing and holding buttons...so on didnt work...
when it worked,
the .exe was in C drive, Ran as an Adminstrator, iTunes was CLOSED, what made the different is unpluged my Microsoft wireless keyboard any mouse..(as I saw by someones comment) thought its lame...but somehow it worked 4 me....
the easiest Jailbrak ever...
Thank you GeoHot and the person who left the comment :P
1.Disable sync in the intial phone settings
2.Edit>preferences go to devices tab and check disable sync.
3.Put phone in air plane mode
4.Ran blackra1n as admin and winxp compat
Didn't work the 1st time so disconnected, got stuck in DFU (silly icon where USB plug points to the ITunes icon), just turned off iPod, turned it on again, everything back to normal, connected sync cable to PC, "Let it ra1n", BAMMMMMM, jailbroken.
1. put blackra1n on c drive
2. turn compatibility mode on. Vista users put XP. Xp users put windows 2000.
3. run program and hit make it rain. The program should get stuck on entering recovery mode at this point.
4 with the program stuck on entering recovery mode, hit power and home on the phone to turn it off. Leave the phone off.
5. close blackra1n. turn compatibility mode off. run it again, hit make it rain
6. turn iphone back on. wait for it to jailbreak.
I've now done this on 2 iphones that wouldn't work the way the normal directions state and it worked like a charm. Give it a try.
THANK YOU SO MUCH !
Windows 7 x64
blackra1n exe was on the desktop (some fixes say it MUST be on the root of C:)
iphone was plugged in, just sitting there.
right click on blackra1n.exe, set compatability mode to XP SP3 (read here to use Vista, but it blows and I refuse to associate with it)
right click blackra1n again, Run As Administrator.
That's it, worked exactly as described after that. Took about 20 seconds to put the blackra1n app on the phone, I'm downloading Cydia as I type this.
To all the folks who used this, you should donate! To everyone complaining about it, keep researching, the right method is out there for you! Then Donate! I did!
also im not and official carrier but when i update my 3g it gets locked then i put in a disactivated sim and connect it to the computer then it is activated but not unlocked is this something u would like to post trust u will get donations off of this
it lied to me :(
Guys/Gals, follow the alternative method by iSpazio at btm of page on ihackintosh.com "Jailbreak your iPhone iPod 3.1.2 with Blackra1n" article. It deals with situations in which you don't see the Hotz graphic + get stuck on "running". Cheers.
Currently running Vista.
Tried all possible and impossible combinations of rebooting my iPhone, putting it in recovery mode, in DFU mode, holding power/home buttons for different time periods, and alas, after a solid 30 tries Frodo appeared on my iPhone. His jolly face stared right back at me for a good 20 seconds and the phone re-started. Got me right back to square 1, emergency screen with no jailbreak. Another 20+ failed attempts later, Frodo miraculously re-appeared. Again, stared at me for a few seconds; iPhone re-started and back to emergency screen.
Any ideas how I can get Frodo to actually jailbreak this thing?
but I do not have anymore the option the share my internet connection
any clue ?
Ran on Windows 7 in Vista SP2 compatibility mode, Bonjour service stopped.
Nice simple jailbreak.
Email me @ByndGalaxiesS@aol.com
If i could just get one good person to help me out, that would be awesome. Thanks.
Just remember to enable the bonjour service again!
im new to the whole jailbreaking thing sooo...
Is it okay for me to install cydia and hackulous through the rogers internet and not wifi or should i wait to install these until i have wifi??? will rogers detect that i've jailbroken my phone??
I then slid the slider to get to the home screen and run blackra1n again and it worked straight away.
I don't know if it's because of how I did it or just coincidence but it's probably worth a try for anyone still having problems with this!
and do you have to have ipt 2g plugged in to the computer in order for blackra1n to work
after it works, go to cydia and do update. then search for afc2add in cydia apps. install this and winterboard, iphonebrowser, etc will work!
Using vista, iphone 16gb .
This is what i did:
1)restored the phone
2)switched to the rear usb port of my comp
3)restarted the comp
5)started taskmanager : stopped ituneshelper, synhelper and a couple of processses starting with sync..
6)blackrain in c:/
7)right click, run as admin
8)make it rain
careful next time
I hope it will help you.
I FOLLOWED THESE INSTRUCTIONS AFTER A DAY OF REBOOTING AND BLACKRA1NING AND FAILURE AND ALISHER'S METHOD FINALLY WORKED FOR ME.
THANK YOU ALISHER!!
thank you for that advice my iphone is now jailbroken :D
I am a virgin at this Jailbreaking things and am wondering the future of my Ipod Touch 32Gb.
I have been successful at the jailbreak (dudes mug appears)and even loading cydia. When I go to reboor I get the Itunes USB pic.
Am I doing something wrong?
I also have questions regarding life after the jailbreak(1st time jailbreaker so be nice):
- How do I reboot my Ipod Touch 32Gb?
- Can I ever use Itunes?
- How to I add apps?
- Is there a program that is better than Itunes to add songs and apps?
see my blog to recover ur I-pod to its original state and enjoyhttp://knowstuffsbetter.blogspot.com/
its worth reading as u can get ur i-touch or i-phone back working
and blank screen
download from firefox it works pefectly
I finally did it. Here's what worked for me:
-Put blackra1n in C:
-You don't need to run itunes or kill any process
-Slide ur finger to unlock ur iphone (you should be in homepage now)
Here's the key part. I tried this a million times on vista and it did not work, but it worked the first time on xp. If you have vista right click on blackra1n> click on properties> go to compatibility tab> Check the box saying "Run this program in compatibility with Windows XP"
If your iPhone freezes after the dude's face pops up, wait a little then hold the sleep butten until ur iphone is off, then turn it on and blackra1n should be installed for you.
anything nos before I connect it to my computer? I want to jailbreak
and unlock. I want to keep My baseband 4. As for right now I have nothing installed, only emergency screen.
*********BLACKRA1N RC2 RELEASED ON OCT. 26th ***********
Tried Blackra1n RC1 never worked no matter how many time I tried.. DOWNLOAD THE NEW UPDATED BLACKRA1N RC2. Worked on the first try..
I love this program!!!
TY TY TY TY TY very much!!!
PLEASE REPLY SOMEONE...
This is what worked for me on 3g 3.1.2
Plug the phone in, close itunes, run blackra1n. When it hangs on running, itunes will open on it's own, close itunes again. then go into Task Manager and end process on ituneshelper. Then close blackra1n and run it again.
I have a 3G 64gb touch with 3.1.2 and it seemed to have worked. Only problem is that when I sinc my ipod, none of the apps I have in itunes transfers to the ipod touch. I get an error that states: "The application " " was not installed to " ipod " because of an unknown error (0xE8008001). " Any insight will help..
I have an Iphone 3G 16GB. I have succesfully jailbroken. 3.1 Firmware.
I can use it. But if I left it on for severl hours it crashes and I obtain only a "white screen of death".
If I left it without charge for a couple of days everything turns OK. But I cannot understand why.
I tried everything. Back to 3.0. Left without jailbreak..
nothing to do. If I use it for 10 minutes BAM! White screen...
I supposed it would be wet. So I opened it but the spots are still white, not pink...
Can anyone help me?
I have an iphone 3G and am running on Windows Vista.
From the many, many forums I've been reading tonight it seems alot of people had to tweak things around to get things working. The following is what worked for me.
If the below doesn't help you, keep researching, keep trying! Moved Blackra1n to my C:/ Drive Restarted my laptop (Not sure if this is necessary but I gave it a go) UNCHECKED the compatibility Windows xp service pack 2 in the Program Properties (I had it checked b/c other directions said to do so.. but having it not checked worked for me) Had iTunes program opened, but minimized and turned off "Automatically sync when iPhone is connected" option Unlocked my iphone screen (go to your icons page from your battery/clock screen) Right click on Blackra1n and Run as Admin Clicked Make it rain As soon as iphone goes black I held POWER & HOME buttons. When APPLE logo comes up on screen I let go of POWER and kept holding HOME Screen will go to picture with itunes and USB cord, kept holding on to HOME until the Blackra1n picture appears. Hope this helps anyone else!
I think you might have to have the program though, I tried to repeat this w/o the program opened and it wouldn't exit Recovery Mode.
... if it's any help I believe the QuickPwn I have is Version 2.2.5-2 . I had this program still installed from when I jail broke my 3G on previous firmwares.
Today I'm going to borrow a Macbook and try to do a jailbrake with PwnageTool 3.1.4 - I hope it will solve this case.
Here goes the tutorialUnlock iPhone 3g 3gs using blackra1n
* Right-click the blackra1n icon and click properties.
* Click the Compatibility tab.
* Under compatibility mode click the box to enable it and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2). Click OK, and then run blackra1n.
Windows Vista 32 + iPhone 3G 3.1.2
I restarted both PC and iPhone first then; put blackra1n.exe file into C:/ folder. opened itunes slid “slide to unlock” so that i was on home screen. ran blackra1n.exe and it worked. Did not stop any processes in task mgr whatsoever.
Still running fine this morning.
Thanks in advance.
I will go drop some donation to George!
Instructions worked a treat!
was having issues before hand, but followed his instructions and bam! Epic Awesomeness.
Glad it all worked out. I am very careful with my expensive toys so I read up on almost everything before I began. And even had my fingers crossed while JB-ing. ha!
Isnt it great? My iPhone just "suddenly" filled up with apps... all of them FREE. Loveeeee it! Not to mention opening you phone on the metro and having another user gawk at it not knowing why your GUI is different from theirs. ;)
BUT now i all of my itunes apps dont start...
i tried several things like deleting all apps on the phone and in itunes and loading them again but still the same shit...
is there a solution???
whats about restoring and unlocking it again? do you thing it will work?
Please held me because thats driving me mad...
Hey bud i also have a 2G iphone, i really want to update my iphone to version 3.1.2 without it locking back up (im using T-mobile as my carrier) and my iphone is currently version 2.2
so can anyone please help me? i want to use blackra1n so bad but im not sure if it will lock up my phone. anyone please help me!!
Go to Cydia
Go to "Manage"
You can delete whatever you want there.
Hope this helps.
2. Search for a program in Cydia called "Cydelete". Once installed on your phone, you can remove apps that you got from Cydia just like normal apps. The X's on the icons will just be another color.
Hope this helps.
still frekibg iur that I might get. A 300$ paper weight so I might just undo it
Just another note... I think my wifi distance increased after JB-ing the phone. I used to not get 2bars of recep in the rooms (router outside) but not I get the full range.
This is IMHO of course.
It does not brick the phone,
If your worried about a new update and it causeing it to brick..........How? Unless you understand how the programing works on the IPHONE do not make such stupid comments. Please.........
i got the black raindrop on my springboard, but when i install cydia in blackra1n, it download and respring, but there comes no cydia!
I'm on 3.1.2 with my iPhone 3GS.
Ok people I found the key to one eyed willie. For those getting stuck on running in blackra1n with the phone showing the usb connector and itunes do this. 1. put blackra1n on c drive 2. turn compatibility mode on. Vista users put XP. Xp users put windows 2000. 3. run program and hit make it rain. The program should get stuck on entering recovery mode at this point. 4 with the program stuck on entering recovery mode, hit power and home on the phone to turn it off. Leave the phone off. 5. close blackra1n. turn compatibility mode off. run it again, hit make it rain 6. turn iphone back on. wait for it to jailbreak. I’ve now done this on 2 iphones that wouldn’t work the way the normal directions state and it worked like a charm. Give it a try
I tell them what is my problem:
Upgrade to 3.1.2 with iTunes updates.
Movistar Argentina I’m not interested Gazette and release (although they deserve it because the attention is malisima but it is another topic)
so the iphone still goes perfect.
I Jailbrek with Blackra1n rc3 perfectly and I miss the GPS locate me. PushMail youtube and wrong.
Restore the network configuration. And the gps still reach me.
Install push fix, as I had suggested and nothing.
I went back to restore to 3.1.2 and no jail, works perfectly.
Thinking the problem was Blackra1n, I jailbreack restoring in custom firmware, those that already have the Cydia, and again the GPS locates me.
I searched the internet and some say it’s the time change and a mistake that Movistar Argentina, but I when I blackra1n probe and release, with a chip
another company and I did not locate.
The Temne is that I would like to install tomtom have a gps like people, but with this problem the program did not locate either.
I hope someone knows who goes and if you have any solution.
Thank you very much
What's going on ?

I jailbreak my 3g with blackra1n. Im have a hard time to install crack apps. Can you help me out???
i jailbreak my ipod touch with blackra1n. but i cant add songs to my ipod touch. any solutions? thanks.
best jailbreak ever!!!!
-just the best
can somebody help me?
make sure you leave blackra1n running when you do this
when it asks to reboot just do the power cycle yourself by holding down the power button at the top and when it reboots you get the Itunes and ipod plug picture but don't worry! just plug in your ipod and you should see the developers face again, it will continue to reboot and you have all your stuff still including winterboard!!!

Thanks for the iphoneblog.
One question. Do I still connect to iTunes for syncing?
I jailbreaked my iphone 3g version 3.1.2 with firmware 05.11.07 using blackra1n. Initially iphone rebooted and it showed geohot pic and then after reboot it showed blackra1n icon on the iphone. Being a dumb guy and not knowing the difference between jail breaking and unlocking the iphone I uninstalled blackra1n immediately assuming I unlocked the IPHONE. After that I ran blackra1n 50 times to unlock it, but I am not able to see blackra1n icon (Does not know how to install Cydia or ra1n) with out this. Almost spend 15 hours on this. Please help me how can I fix this problem. Thanks in advance.
a. Restore the iphone using ITunes then started the process all over again.
b. Repeated the process with 3G enabled and disabled
c. Tried to install Blackrain with either the Sim cards (Tmobile or At&T) and with none
d. After install of snow & cydia with At&t sim, removed Sim, did reboot then installed Tmobile sim Here are the particulars on my phone: Version 3.1.2 (7D11); s/n 32946 (1st 5 #s); model MC123LL; firmwre: 05.11.07
I am doing this from a Windows 7 machine
Everything is ok until the phone is switched off and back on again. It shows the "Connect to Itunes", which then asks to restore.
It is obvious that this only seems to work on the older iphones as I have tried everything.
I have the
3.1.2 (7D11) firmware original (1 weeks old)
Modem Firmware Date: 05.11.07
Does anyone have a solution on this problem as there does seem to be loads of users having this very same problem.
I can confirm I downloaded the ipsw from the link, and everything does install without any issues....
Including installing all the ipa games and apps.
It's if I switch off the phone I have to do all this again, which is time consuming and I loose data saved in one of my apps for mileage and business logs....
Hope someone can advise...
Feel free to email me at email@example.com
It should then keep the current settings and apps etc and you can continue as normal. What I want to know is there a work around for this excpet:
1) leaving the phone on 24hrs a day
2) reconnecting to blackra1n everytime reboot the device
2 of my mates has got the same iphone as me 16gb with 3.1.2 but there ones work like a treat (without the rebooting issue)
I read somewhere that most recent iphones has had the bootrom software changed and that stops blackra1n working with it (hence the bootup problem)
Is there or will there be something to stop the reboot problem??????
You can install the afc2add program in Cydia to add the service. Just search for it in Cydia and install.
i follow the instructions and it work well however after rebooting it doesnt go straight were it should be and it's prompting to hook it up to itunes to restore.
i tried several times. hope they can do a remedy on this problem.
0 - Highly advisable to run it on stock iPhone (not Jailbroken etc)
1 - Restart computer. Close all program (MSN, AOL etc). If possible your browser as well (especially INTERNET EXPLORER)
2 - If you are HACTIVATING (using BlackRa1n to activate) - TAKE YOUR SIM OUT OF PHONE!
3 - When running Blackra1n on Vista or Windows7 , put comptability mode as "XP sp2"
4 - If hacktivating: Add wifi network. Download cydia + snow. Install them. Restart
5 - Put sim in. Enjoy.
[Make sure you have .net 2.0 framework installed]
3b - If you don't see icons after jailbreak. Unplug (keep sim out). Then reboot completely
I read about the afc2 but I am not sure that is going to help this problem. Can someone please explain more clearer? Much appreciated
Please Help it would be much appreciated
&& i jailbroke my ipod but now i have nothing because i don't have wi-fi at my house
and now i have an empty ipod with nothinng :(
i need someones help !
I have a 8 GB Ipod touch 2G
In the meantime, the only other solution is to just leave your iphone on all the time. I don't see any reason to ever switch it off in the first place, unless you are flying (you can just switch off so that you cannot receive signals from carrier, but still leave it on like a pda)...
When I ran the program, it would show the picture of the cable and the Itunes symbol, but would not do anything other than say it was in recovery on the PC.
I disabled compatibility mode and it worked first go in seconds. Might be the solution for some people.
I hope this helps
I have an Iphone 3GS 3.1 OTB, upgraded via itunes to 3.1.2
now jailbreaked thanks to George. Keep the good work!
Thanks in advance.
but every time i try top restore my ipod so the jailbreak is deleted after it restores it says restoring firmware and then gives me the error code 6
what can i do to fix this?
i tried recovery and DFU modes
Blackscreen: hold POWER and HOME together until u see the apple logo.
Recovery mode: enter DFU mode by pressing POWER and HOME together 10sec then keep pressing ONLY HOME for 6 seconds. After u enter in DFU, jsut restart ur iphone/ipod bye holding HOME and POWER until u see the apple logo.
So for me the jailbreak didn't work so i would appreciate if someone could help me.
and a another noob question , if your touch is locked can it still lose battery life ?
What I did:
1. Turn off iPhone
2. Unplug iPhone from the computer
3. Run blackra1n (it will say "waiting for device")
4. Plug in iPhone
5. Wait 20-60secs, done
Hope this works for at least some of you. I had installed blackra1n when I first got my iPhone a few days ago and it worked perfectly, but I don't know why I had so much trouble after restoring it and doing it again. Works now, am going to play! :-D
No regrets on the tethered reboot since I leave my phone on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year...
I restored it from the old jailbreak i had, so i could use blackra1n. i get to the "make it rain" button, press it, then it says its going into recovery mode. my itunes recognizes this, then tells me that i MUST restore my ipod due to it being in recovery mode before i can do anything with itunes. so i'll have finished the jailbreak, but my itouch is useless cause i HAVE to restore before i can get to the home on my itouch. WTF IS WRONG WITH IT ?!
What should I do to skip the connection?
this is called a tethered jailbreak.
I tried to run blackra1n, but everytime I run it, the phone reboots, then ask to unlock sim, so far so good, but the icon of blackra1n and Cydia is not present on my screen.
Can anyone help me?
1: put blackra1n.exe in C: or ur main hard drive
2: press ctrl+alt+delete and open the task manager
3: go tothe processes tab and close anything that has to do with apple, ipod or itunes.
4: run blackra1n from c: as administrater and it should work
NOTE: i had itunes closed and the home page on my ipod was open (not the lock screen but the screen after u unlock it) and im using ipod touch 3g with 3.1.2 firmware
after rebooting it.. my iphone dont gettng start.. I jst see the apple logo.. nthng else
1) i tries to restart my ipod by holding down home and power
2) I has restore my ipod to it factory setting which is 2.2.1 3
3) i tries to jailbreak for like the 10th times now is still not work, the rebooting part is killing me.
4) the picture is suppose to pop up but is pop u like 1 second, i barely see it and is continue. or sometime is just pop up white screen for a split second. and on window is said jailbreak is done. please wait for reboot,
5) i have been do so and wait for it to reboot. for like 40 minutes.
I downloaded Blackrain, clicked on make it rain, and it all works as it should ( I see geohot and it reboots) bu I dont see the blackrain app.. Ive tried several things but nothing seems to work.. I just never get the blackrain app. Plz help ;)
I was able to jailbreak my new 3gs running 3.1.2 (7d11) with firmware 05.11.07 using blackra1n. I realize this is a tethered jailbreak. Is anyone working on a resolution to the tethered jailbreak that will resolve having to rerun blackra1n once you power off and back on the phone. Everything else is fine, its just the fact that if you have to power off the phone or the battery dies, the only way to get the phone to boot back up ist to rerun blackra1n. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I hesitated to upgrade due to the difficulty of unlocking and jailbreaking iPhones after 3.1 came out. I stayed with 3.0.
I currently have an unlocked & jailbroken iPhone 2g and am using Windows.
Here is my question:
Will Blackrain be able to unlock (or keep it unlocked) my iPhone 2g while jailbreaking it? Thanks in advance!
Turns out that the new apple iPhones still run 3.1.2 but now its 3.1.2 OOB which has an upgraded iBoot which fixes the iPhone bug that allows Jailbreaks to be persistent across restarts.
1) Run Jailbreak. For me this would briefly show a restore screen, then a picture of GeoHot, then the iPhone would restart and again show a restore screen forever. This is where I gave up before and restored by iPhone.
2) Don't restore yet. BlackRa1n should have had an alert popup saying that it was done and the "make it rain button" will have become a grayed out "done, wait for reboot". With you iphone still plugged in go up to the file menu and quit black rain. Then reopen Blackra1n and the "make it rain" button will reappear.
3) Rerun Blackra1n (your iphone is still in recovery mode) the same process will occur again but this time it should reboot back to a working iPhone.
4) Follow the other tutorials to run BlackSn0w and enable tethering etc.
Note: on these new iphones with 3.1.2 OOB the iphone will go back into restore mode on every reboot (pressing the top sleep button for 3-5 seconds) the only way to fix this is to tether your phone and either rerun BlackRa1n or Restore with iTunes. This is definitely not ideal so consider carefully whether jailbreaking your phone is worth it.
After doin this
And then you have to black rain it out again.
I have freezing problems also and tried runing it at as normal not under sp2 and not as administrator and this worked a treat. hope this helps
Can anyone help me out plz...
if you have a 2nd gen or possibly a 3rd gen (not confirmed yet) that you have jailbroken, if you use blackra1n on the 2nd gen it WILL work, BUT if you install cydia or rock or anything like that, YOU CANNOT, REPEAT CANNOT POWER DOWN YOUR ITOUCH!!!! THIS IS WHAT PUTS IT IN RECOVERY MODE!!!
its a major bug that hackers are unable to fix, and after the first gen jailbreak came out apple fixed this breach in the 2nd gens coding, so if you power the device down it will crash.
HOWEVER putting it in standby by clickin the top will not affect it, you still have a jailbroken itouch. So the down side is your ipods on 24/7, but its still jailbroken.
1. if I connect to itune via cable, the phone goes into recovery mode automatically if I power off the phone and on again, it goes into recovery mode as well. There must be somtheing I missed during the jb. Any help would be great. (I am running widows 7)
i have THREE Ipod Touchees and it worked on the first one i did
but the other 2 dont work whats up with that????
And my other question is what is this difference between a JAILBREAK and an UNLOCK. thanks for ur time hope someone will answer my question correctly.
Looking forward for a quick response.
(info: New iPod Touch 3g on 3.1.2 software, running iTunes 184.108.40.206)
I just cracked my iPod with blackra1n, then have been downloading apps through installious, and have appsync installed as well. Everything has been running fairly smooth... until I have to restart my iPod. Each time i restart my iPod it gets stuck in recovery mode and I have to restore it, losing any downloaded apps (appsync doesnt seem to be working :/ ?) Do I need to download a different crack for it to work properly? My friend has a 2g touch on 3.1.1 and his is working fine... I've been searching the web for hours but cant find anything, and would really like to not lose my apps i already have too if possible. Any suggestions?
(e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to reply there too)
i used on my itouch 2g and it works great =)
ok i used blackra1n on my 3gs and it worked fine apart from having to connect to a pc with blackra1n and itunes installed everytime i boot, i then next ran it on both of my old iphone 3g`s with 3.1, again worked fine and can reboot both devices all fully jailbroken. The strange thing in this is that the 3gs iphone (3.1.2) now works with orange as well as o2 but not tmobile ot virgin or vodaphone and just one of the 3g ones works the same way too, but the other 3g iphone on 3.1 wont unlock at all it says on the phone differnet sim found and asked to be connected to itunes when connecting it itunes refuses to regiister phone and says contact carrier, but whats more interesting is even though when unplugged from the pc and the screen shows emergancy call only if you ring the orange number from another phone the iphone then rings and allows you to answer the call ? its life its unlocked but the screen or phone thinks that it isnt how strange anyone any ideas....
i was wondering if someone can help me with this lock issue.
i am using balckra1n but the thing is that my phone is rebooting by itself every now and then.
and i need to do the procedure every time.
any tips.why is it doing that problem./
HELP me please !!!!!

good for jailbreaking and tips
if you read the Somanza's comments there have been some answers
"Turns out that the new apple iPhones still run 3.1.2 but now its 3.1.2 OOB which has an upgraded iBoot which fixes the iPhone bug that allows Jailbreaks to be persistent across restarts."
some iphones released after October have a different iboot that is what blackra1n was circumventing, so some of you retards think you're more clever than others because you got the patch to work but it's just a question of the iboot load in your phone, all you other people shouting help, learn to read the comments, and most likely wait for OS 4.0 and a new crack
Jailbroken in one step with no problems, i didn't even have to restore!
but theres an error, once you jailbreak ur ipod touch 3g if you turn it off it will enter in recovery mode so do not turn it off TY:)
sorry about my english i'm 14 and i'm from mexico :E

Please help me clear my doubt.
Iam using unlock iphone 2g with 2.0 firmware.

2. Will my phone be locked? If yes than how should I unlock it?
3. How about my current data on my iphone?
4. I have itunes 8.0. should i upgrade this also first?
I may be sounding quite basic questions but your help in detail would be highly appreciated.
Also for yr information Iam fm India and have bought the phone from the grey market.
Thks in advance.
SUCKS TO BE 3GS RIGHT NOW!!
I hope geobot is reading this!!
Great installation help...thanks, fixed my problem.
Anyone reading this guys stuff should bookmark it.
I have a 16GB 3GS, I can't access the music/video thru the IPOD tab via iphone PC suite. Everything else is working fine. I heard iphone PC suite doesn't supportany firmware above 2.x.x. Is it true? Right now I have to use CopyTrans for the ipod management. Is iphone broswer able to do it all? If yes, I might give it a try.
every time i download an app it reboots and i have to run the blacra1n thing again.
is there a way to disable this tehered stuff???
You will have to basically wait for a new jailbreak program to be released which should be within the next day or two so just keep an eye out if you already accidently updated!
The other thing you can do is see if you can find firmware 3.1.2 from google for your generation device and just download it and press Shift+Restore on iTunes to use that instead of the new 3.1.3 update
i need serious help here... i jailbroken my iphone (3G) a few months ago, and 2 nights ago, I was using it and it just got frozen..

During jailbreaking my iPhone was stuck in recovery mode. I was trying many times to restart blackra1n. And also I did try to restore with iTunes to 3.1.2 ,it's giving me every time the same message "This device isn't eligible for the requested build". So i stuck I recovery mode. Can u help me please, what I shoul do?
I soon found out that i needed to downgrade my firmware, but many people were saying that it is not possible to do so, as apple has stopped signing 3.1.2 restore files...
I persume this means that you cant get hold of that file, but if you visit this website http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ it will give you a selection of firmwares to download...
follow all instructions on this website... then, i found the following website... http://www.ihackintosh.com/2010/02/downgrade-iphone-2g-3g-os-3-1-3-to-3-... i found this link very usefull, follow the instructions on there..
When prompted to restore on your itunes, do the following. hold shift button and press restore find your previously saved firmware click open and wait for it to run once this has done, run blackrain (or similar) and away you go...
this worked for me.
and i have some tips for u guy, download it from the ofical website www.blackra1n.com, and if u guys have a mac, do it on a mac, like i said, it always work for me on a mac, but on a vista its a different story
I clicked Make it rain his picture came up and everything then the ring started and my screen went black and didint re boot. Any solutions ?
and for u, hold the power button till it turns off, then rerun blackra1n
that only happens to me when i use my vista, if u have a mac, DO IT ON THE MAC FOR THE LAST TIME, i hopeit works for u
Mac- ibook g4 leopard 10.5.7
-hopes this helps ummm, lOUIS RODGER, if any of u guys play eliminate, add me-wardoc22
if u guys have any problemms, email me @ email@example.com
umm, i never encountered that problem but, i think its only on an xp, but search up on win explorer
"system restore" and the program will tell u wat to do
-best of luck
any problem email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
try reinstalling itunes with like, idk an older versoin? im not very sure if itll work since i never had the problem b4, but...
if u want to keep your 3G jailbroken, u should keep the firmware u have now
if u make a backup, it will just restore your backup and your mail, but not the game saves and stuff, im pretty sure bout that.
any question, email me at email@example.com
if anyone play eliminate add me- wardoc22
search for it on your computer, look in different folders for it
i had a hard time finding it when i downloaded onto my vista.
um, if you have 3.1.2, that baseband is unlockable now, so u can only use it with atnt
the baseband is impossible to downgrade
if u just updated your phone to 3.1.3, it isnt possible to jailbreak it anymore with blackra1n, but i think i heard somewhere that it is possible with, um i think redsn0w or something
3.1.3 is not jaiilbreakable...
i need help...where cann i downloade a restore to 3.1.2. for my Ipod G3? I have only the 3.1.3. Version...
i tried it on all of my computers but none of those works
I guess there is no easy way to reverse it as the new firmware upgrade comes with a baseband update as well..you'll have to wait for a new release..
I used blackra1n on my ipod touch as a test and it worked no problem, then I go to jb the iPhone 3gs 32gig. It goes through the process no problem. Enters recovery, shows George Holtz picture, then computer received the notice that the jb was successful. Only now the iPhone will not boot up again. I cant turn it on no matter what I do. Holding power and home at the same time don't work in this matter. Itunes comes up and says the iphone is in a recovery mode and only gives me an option to restore, I will not restore and lose my 8 pages apps and 20 gigs of music. I cant get that stuff back. What can I do?
what should i do?
do you know any good website for programs?
dont throw it away... its probaly in dfu mode or something so yeah

WARNING: Do not update iPhone 3g & 3gS to 3.1.3 firmware yet if you want to preserve your Jailbreak/Unlock for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch 2G (new models) and iPod touch 3G. This is because the new iPhone 3.1.3 firmware updates baseband from 5.11.07 (unlockable with Blacksnow) to 05.12.01 (currently Unlockable) on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G which makes it impossible to jailbreak and unlock iPhone 3GS and 3G.

I'm just like you also. Since yesterday i have not found much info regarding the problem you and I as well as alot of people are having...everywhere I go I get the same thing...just wait. Now there are vids on youtube that show you a hard way to downgrade 3.1.3 to 3.1.2, but man is it hard. I just wish something comes up soon....I know one thing I won't ever update my firmware again until I "Know" things are ok...good luck!!
I want to completely jailbreak my ipodtouch 3.1.2 without doing rejailbreak all over again after my battery completely emptied, because its really taxing to do jailbreak again and again. if possible please give me the program that could jailbreak completely without once without doing rejailbreak again and again
its a mc model?
but please can ya tell me a way to uninstall jailbreak and cydia as my ipod touch 3.1.2 just says conncect to itunes and i want it to work properly so please can you help
any answers to that
I posted a couple of week ago that I was not able to downgrade my ipod touch 2nd gen. Well I did it just now...jailbroken and all with blackra1n on my Ipod. Here is the video on youtube that I followed...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kljGhczatWU. Now the point is most of the videos out there are good (I'm not taking away from that) but most of them are for IPHONES not IPOD TOUCH. They will say that it's for all but it is not!!! Go to this site to make sure you have the firmware for IPOD Touch http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ (your version of course). Again follow the video EXACTLY and it WILL work. Once done run blackra1n and your good to go...semper phi
Can someone help?
can I ask something ?
If I was do jailbreak before the new one that is for 3.1.2
and when I want restore my iPhone I have to doing jailbreak again to let my phone working
if I do this new, can this solvent the problem !
Thanx alot ..!
Also, is there a jailbreak for 3.1.3?
THIS FREAKIN WORKED! Kid, you are indeed a GENIUS!
Thank You So much!
Let me explain why this is NOT working for some of you. You MUST have been previously jailbroken. You should have your ECID saved already on Saurik's server. Follow the above instructions to the letter. You must be persistent with BlackRain AFTER the restore. You should be patient with this entire process. Loading and restoring takes time. And, YES this does indeed work!
I had the EXACT same problem after my restore. This is where Step 4 above comes into play. I ran several copies of BlackRain at the same time! Then, as an act of desperation I decided to load Itunes AND Blackrain at the same time and guess what? It worked!
thank you for your replies..
now here's my dilemma.
when i enter the blackra1n app i gives me the option to download either cydia or rock. say i choose cydia (problem occurs with either installers) it seems to work at first and when it finishes downloading it says "respringing". once reloaded the cydia app i nowhere to be found.
what's going wrong here??
"need help to jb my iphone 3GS 3.1.2 i try it once when i reboot my iphone said connetion to itune help…"
The iphone remains in the recovery mode. Any advice?
IPhone 3GS, non-JB,
out of recovery mode without using itunes to update the firmware to 3.1.3.
My phone shows "No Service". This hasn't happened before the jailbreak (this SIM card is the one which goes for this phone and don't need to unlock). But I am unable to phone or text. Also my GPS doesn't work anymroe.
Can anyone help?
It starts one step and stays there for hours doing nothing, i think this was only designed for iPhones...=/
it Jailbreaked Apparently Then Itunes Made Me Restore My Ipod :@
I Had Over 1000 Songs On It :L
And Now Itunes Wont Even Start And Is Unable To Connect Even Though There Is WiFi And I Cant Tell Whether It Has Worked Or Not :@
i tried to jailbrake my iphone but when i pushed te butten about make it rain, the iphone went in recovery mode but the only thing i see is a black screen anyone PLEASE HELP ME
Also have a 2nd gen i phone, wa able to get you tueb working as well as the picture messaging working as well. Would like to know what else i can do to it. Any ideal's?
prolly too late but anw u could dl the firmware for 3.1.2.. but make sure ur iphone is not upgraded to 3.1.3
u will require shsh file in order to let ur iphone operate on 3.1.2 as apple now stop signing for 3.1.2.
google abit n u could dl the shsh file. many says u require the shsh file being backup n load to cydia server, but u could find n dl the file if u happen to find those with the same ECID with u..
google abit to find out how to locate your ECID, n den dl umbrella, to search for ur shsh file.
hope it dun sounds too confusing
It didnt auto reboot either....
What should i do?
Or does this just not work on a vista computer?
Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem" so thats what I do and it happens agian, what am I supposed to do??thanks
If you got a problem running black ra1n “The program can’t start because ASL.dll" this is because you are using the latest version of Itunes 9.1.1.
All what you need to do is to copy blackra1n.exe file to the following location at your PC
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\
then run it from their and it will work.
I tried it my self last night.
so i deleted everything about Blachra1n and tried again but it tells me the same thing. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!! I AM REALLY DESPERATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyways, I figured you could use that in your bag of tricks too :-)

Hi. I tried jailbreaking my iPod Touch 32 Gigabyte 3G 3.1.2 and it said it suceeded but when it rebooted the blackra1n app wasnt there…
It didnt auto reboot either….
What should i do?
Or does this just not work on a vista computer?"
Entry no. 22.
I know I have an iPod 3rd generation, 8GB.
I have Windows 7 home.
-I tried BlackBreeze to fix that pesky ".11" crap, to no avail, it's still saying "blackra1n-fixed1.exe has stopped working" the SECOND I click the "Make it Ra1n" buttoN!!!
-I downloaded iTunes 9.1 after reading 9.2 doesn't work, no avail.
-I moved BlackRa1n to my local C disk and did the task manager thing where you end all the Apple&&iTunes tasks so they can't stop it, no avail.
I BEG of you to help me! Pleeeeeeeeeeeease!
firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer emails!

"I pushed the windows icon at blackra1n.com and i clicked run. It said it couldnt find my asl.dll and therefor i cant go on with jail breaking my 3rd generation ipod touch. Can you tell me what to do? thank"
the answer was : "Hi Robert,download Blackrain and put it in: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support ….good luck it will work now."
BUT I DONT HAVE A APPLE COMPUTER, IS A WINDOWS COMP, HOW CAN I GET BLACK RAIN APP TO WORK ON MY PHONE!! PLEASE I NEED HELP WITH THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS..THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE :)
I.E. after u copy the program to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support, double click on it's copy INSIDE OF THE FOLDER ITSELF
Hope this helps.... check out YOutube, there r a lot of good jailbreaking tutorials over there...
i strongly recomend a) backing up your iphone before doing ANYTHING, and b) having a copy of ur current firmware already downloaded...this helps if u lock urself out of the phone and get stuck on the "Connect To iTunes" screen. Or, once u've downloaded the firmware, try using redsn0w
@ every1 who gets "Cannot find ASL.dll, here's what u do:
a) copy blackra1n
b) paste the copy in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support ( open this from My Computer )
Start blackra1n AGAIN, and if it dosen't work still, double click the shorcut from within the Apple Application Folder itself
hope this helped...
Any help would be appreciated.
NOTE TO MYSELF: DON'T JAILBREAK itouch AGAIN !!!!
