  • 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!

      I have tried everything possible to get blackra1n to work. I am running 64bit vista with an iPhone 3G 3.1.2. I keep getting stuck on the running step (connect to iTunes screen). I have shutdown all iTunes applications on my computer. How do I get to the next step?????

      There would seem to be a problem with the 3G version as like many other cannot get it to work. I have tried on a XP SP3 Laptop, Vista SP2 Laptop, PC with Vista Sp1 and a Win7 system and get the same result time and time again..

      I have been tried all the different things that people have been putting up here and i get the USB -> iTune logo every time

      my 3GS went was JB with no problem

      Guess I will have to wait and see what happens and if anyone come up with a working fix

      just made it ra1n. Window xp iPhone 3gs 3.1.2. Took the 30 seconds like it claimed =D

      I HAD A LOT OF PROBLEMS (LIKE MANY OF YOU) BUT FINALLY I MADE IT WORK

      What I have started with
      1) Win Vista
      2) iPhone 3G (jailbroken 3.0) - no unlock needed
      3) iTunes 9.0.1

      Big Problems
      Whenever I started blackra1n, I have never reached the GeoHot logo/screen.
      It always get frozen in the middle, having only iTunes logo & USB connector at the screen.
      (so I always had to hard-reset by Home+Power button for ten seconds).
      I was so lost, I've spent sever hours trying to resolve it!

      What I did to make it work (not sure all steps are necessary)
      1) Backup all data (iTunes -> devices -> right-click -> Back Up)
      1b) I used also AptBackup (from BigBoss) to backup my Cydia JB applications
      2) Complete update & restore (original factory settings restored and updated to newest 3.1.2 version)
      3) Uninstall iTunes 9.0.1 and re-install older version iTunes 9.0.0 from http://download.oldapps.com/iTunes/iTunesSetup9.exe I have realized that GeoHot could not tested blackra1n on 9.0.1, because it is so new/recent. So I have decided to try 9.0.0 to make sure.
      4) I have killed all iPhone-related processes except "apple mobile device" service, that means iPodService.exe, iTunes.exe, iTunesHelper.exe, MDNSResponder (Bonjour service)
      5) Closed iTunes
      6) run blackra1n

      7) AND THEN IT DID NOT WORK. blackra1n got frozen
      (phone has restarted, showed apple logo, followed by icon with itunes & usb connector and nothing else happened - GeoHot logo did not show up).

      8) Immediately I restart the phone (by holding home+power button for 10 seconds)
      9) Regular menu / springboard started (this is important. If after restart you still see screen with iTunes logo and USB connector, you will not succeed)
      10) Re-run blackra1n
      11) iPhone has restarted, showing first apple logo followed by geohot logo!
      12) after that everything went just right - according to original tutorial

      Well, I am still thinkg about donation. It took me 6 hours to jailbreak and I had to read 20 pages of posts, but finally I am there, with JB iPhone..

      Good luck to all of you - Jailbreakers. Try blackra1n in many stages and in many situations, there are many options, one will for sure work for you. Don't give up!

      woot! Finally got it after about 12 unsuccessful tries. Using an iPhone 3G I upgraded to 3.1.2 using iTunes 9 and vista 32-bit. I tried everything from turning off Bonjour, to restarting the computer, to switching computers, and to use blackra1n without any other programs. But just now I closed all windows except for iTunes then opened blackra1n and ran it and it worked perfectly fine. I hope (yet doubt) this helps someone.

      Thank you very much. This means that if we are on the 5.11.xx baseband from 3.1 we can go ahead and update to 3.1.2 without further prolonging our wait for a carrier unlock.

      Ok i have spent 12 hours on this and have now got it working on 3g

      (i used the latest itunes)

      1 Stop all itunes stuff (see other posts)including itunes but not the mobile device

      2 Start blackra1n and wait for the freeze

      3 leave blackra1n open but turn off the phone (power and home for 10 seconds)

      4 Turn on the phone and wait for normal wallpaper

      5 Start a second blackra1n(still with old one running)

      This worked for me AT LAST!!! Hope it helps
