  • 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!

    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!

      I used this successfully on my Iphone 3GS with 3.1.2 and Windows 7 64-bit. I had a problem the first time after the jailbreak with installing Cydia but after the second time it worked perfect. I think the Cydia problem may have just been due to server traffic.

      I think the amount of stupid erroneous questions flooding new JB threads is hilarious. Remember back in 2007 where it took more then a couple clicks of a mouse to JB an iPhone? Imagine these people then. Horrible "my phones bricked and Im a moron" posts all over again.

      Hey whats up.
      Each time I try to jailbreak my iPhone 3G (already on 3.1.2, also im on a Windows XP) it gets stuck at the "connect to iTunes" symbol. It doesn't go to GeoHots custom boot logo.
      Should I have iTunes open when I click "Make it ra1n"?
      Should I have put my iPhone in DFU mode or something?
      Please help,

      Using iphone 3G 16gb...vista 32 bit...and now on my 5th try to use blackrain.

      I've tried everything listed so far and nothing seems to work. I've had to completely restore my phone a few times and then backup, etc...

      It seems if I disable/turn off the apple services and bonjour, blackrain just sits at "waiting for phone" screen. If I keep that stuff enabled, it sends the phone into recovery mode and just sits there.

      Any ideas?

      EDIT: I got it to work...not sure how really. I ended up disabling all apple processes, etc...but then I turned them all back on while the phone was plugged in...then re-ran blackrain and it went through the process...weird.

      I was also ready to quit. It seems that it is not as straight forward for 3G iPhones. Had no luck with Win 7, but succeeded after a while with XP SP3(thanks to a combination of ideas by several posters)

      1. Disable Bonjour Service
      2. Type msconfig and look under the startup tab for any iTunes startup items (ituneshelper or itunes) and untick them to disable them at startup
      3. Reboot the PC
      4. Check under task manager for any iTunes processes (there shouldnt be any) and if there are kill them
      5. Right click on Blackra1n.exe and choose runas. Select the bottom radio button (run as administrator) and type in your admin account credentials.

      That worked for me, and believe me i tried everything!

      Hope that helps.

      I suggest restoring it and making sure your carrier name hasn't been changed (or change it back) because that tends to stick around after a restore.

      updated jailbroken 3.1 to 3.1.2 on 3g, then blackra!n. Stuck on "iPhone will be jailbroken when it reboots" Waited forever for reboot and gave up. Hard reboot, not jailbroken. Gonna try a restore to 3.1.2 and see.
