  • blackra1n Released! Jailbreak 3.1.2 For All Devices


    geohot has released his tool blackra1n to jailbreak 3.1.2 for ALL devices. This is a windows only release for now. iPod Touch 3rd generations must have their device plugged in and have to run blackra1n on every boot (tethered).


    DO NOT USE THIS TOOL IF YOU NEED AN UNLOCK. THIS REQUIRES YOU TO RESTORE TO 3.1.2 PRIOR TO USING, WHICH WILL UPGRADE YOUR BASEBAND!

    Instructions:
    1. Update or Restore to 3.1.2 in iTunes (BASEBAND WILL BE UPGRADED FOR 3G AND 3GS)
    2. Launch blackra1n
    3. Press "make it ra1n"
    4. Enjoy!

    geohot:
    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.


    Download blackra1n here:
    blackra1n
    MMi Member Mirror
    Rapidshare
    MegaUpload

    Please post your success stories or problems here.
    Enjoy!


    Via blkcadi:

    Take heed people.
    Warning 3g and 3gs unlockers, do not upgrade to 3.1.2 using iTunes if you want to keep your unlock. Baseband cannot be downgraded. Check out the dev team's offerings. Also blackra1n doesn't hacktivate.





    UPDATE: NetMage created afc2add to take care of adding the service for you. It's available on Cydia and is hosted by MMi. Thanks Bro!



    blackra1n doesn't patch the services.plist. You will have to do it manually to get usb browsing back.

    SSH into your phone and navigate to /System/Library/Lockdown/Services.plist

    Copy Services.plist (copy the original for backup) to your computer and open it in a plist editor or a text editor. Add the following info:

    Paste the following key/dict combo above the line that reads
    <key>com.apple.crashreportcopy</key>

    PHP Code:
        <key>com.apple.afc2</key>
        <
    dict>
            <
    key>Label</key>
            <
    string>com.apple.afc2</string>
            <
    key>ProgramArguments</key>
            <array>
                <
    string>/usr/libexec/afcd</string>
                <
    string>--lockdown</string>
                <
    string>-d</string>
                <
    string>/</string>
            </array>
        </
    dict

    or if you are lazy, here is a pre-patched services.plist

    I recommend editing your own services.plist tho. Reboot your phone and you should be able to use whatever USB browser you want.

    Enjoy!

      well im now even more confused! right after my last post like 2 mins ago, i un hooked my iphone and the blacra1n window pops up saying

      "enjoy your jailbroken phone"
      Your jailbreak is done once the phone reboots.
      If this was the simplest jb ever then please donate.....
      if you paid for this software, demand a refund.......
      available free from blackra1n.com, funded soley on after the fact donations.."

      But its not done, no cydia, the phone is just the same as it was after upgrade to 3.1.2!!

      What goes on? have i missed something?

      Cheers

      Doesn't bypass the iPhone baseband update... Completely worthless.

I'm using windows 7 and what I did was run blackrain when the iphone turn into recovery mode it froze so i closed blackrain I opened itunes and rebooted the phone into recovery mode when i did that i left itunes open and started blackrain at the same time and it worked.

      This is exactly what I've got. Using XP, followed the instructions and get that message but when I restart my iPhone(3GS) there's no difference to be seen.

      Anyone got any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

      One minute lets get this straight, u closed blackra1n, opened itunes and you rebooted the phone and then manually put it in recovery mode?

      Guys, if you need help please post your device name (iPod Touch 2g-1g, iPhone 2G-3G-3GS, etc), your iTunes version, your device's OS version, and your Windows type (xp, vista, or 7). And post the steps you've taken to prepare for the jailbreak. The more information you can give/ recall the better.

      I'm sure there are plenty of generous people out there willing to help you but are tired of asking these basic questions. If you don't post these things then most people that CAN help will just ignore you.

      Also, don't listen to those on here that call you a noob for asking questions, they had to ask people and search for information at one time too.

      In geohotz case maybe there is an I in team. Commendable work as usual by the tyke. I plugged my phone in and hit "Make it Ra1n" and 10 seconds later it reports back that my phone was successfully jailbroken. It rebooted with the BlackRa1n.com jpeg and there it was the BlackRa1n app. This was done on windows 7 x64.

      sorry. Jahooba, your right, i am just so stressed out....


      iPhone 3G 16G
      Widows vista 32bit
      iTunes 9

      upgraded iphone to 3.1.2 through itunes > downloaded blackra1n > closed broswer > Disabled bonjour services/ipod services in msconfig >launched Blackra1n says running and iphone screen stuck on itunes/USB logo.

      The last time i tried, when i unplugged iphone from usb, a box poped up saying JB was done, but no difference!

      Now can anyone help? If so thank you.

      Edit to say, just done it again, and again the pop up says |JB done!! but when i click OK the smaller Blackra1n box says Done, waiting for re-boot.

      I tried doing it with my 2G just to see if it'd work, but when I updated to 3.1.2 with iTunes from jailbroken and unlocked 3.0.1 (with redsn0w) it took away my unlock and said to insert a supported SIM card. I've downgraded back to 3.0.1 jailbroken and unlocked until I figure out another way.

      Last time, when GeoHot came out with purplera1n, the Dev Team released an updated redsn0w for us to use.

      Well folks, after numorous tries and getting ready to give up i turned off every apple task. bonjour,itunes helper, ipod service ect. and ran black rain it took 15 sec. wow! this is awesome!

      just did it on a itouch 2g with 3.1.2 it worked flawlessly on the first try just make sure everything apple related is off.

      im on windows 7 32bit.
