  • 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!

      Ok, sorry if this post consists of newfaggotry:

      I've followed all instructions. iTunes is not open, Bonjour Service is disabled. No Apple processes run at start-up. Blackra1n is in my C:/Drive. I run-as with the adminstrator. I check, before I "Make it ra1n" that no Apple processes are open. The only one that I see is Apple Mobile something or other, which I end.

      Are there other processes which names are not instantly recongnizable that I should be ending?
      Or is there an above mentioned step that I am doing wrong etc...?
      The problem, incase you were wondering is that my iPhone 3G (which was already on 3.1.2) constantly just gets frozen at the "connect to itunes" symbol. I'm running a Windows XP SP3.
      Thanks,

      I've hit the same problems many others have. The phone reboots into recovery mode and the app just then says "running"

      I have tried rebooting phone/ rerunning the app all in various combinations. All running as Administrator, tried it in XP/Vista/95/98 compatibility mode.

      I'm failing on a 3G running freshly updated 3.1.2 on W7 x64

      I have successfully updated my girlfriends 3G(S) fine without any problems so its not the machine.

      Ok after 7 try's I finally got it working. I tried using regular windows xp sp3 and it did not work. It would stay frozen and continued in recovery mode after it said it was succesfully jailbroken. Then I went back to windows 7x64 and ran the program using xp3 compatiblity and it just stay stuck on the jailbraking part. Then I tried it again using xp2 compatiblity and ran as administrator them bamm!!! it worked really quick. I did close the itunes process before procedure. I hope it helps.I do also have the latest version of itunes installed.

      Please help me.

      I run a Mac, but the girlfriend has a PC. So I updated to 3.1.2 on my Mac, backed up, then took the phone to the PC where I downloaded blackra1n.

      Then, I opened iTunes and blackra1n, clicked "make it rain" and the phone enters recovery mode with blackra1n saying "Running" and nothing happens. When I unplug the phone, it does right back to it's original state.

      HELP.

      Guys, if you have problems running the program, and you get frozen on the itune connect screen and no geohot image, PLEASE DISABLE YOU ANTI-VIRUS! I have narrowed it down to it being the anti virus actually not letting you do it.
      Kudos to peter.pinter and MaskHere as it is roughly the same thing but a combination of both.

      Also, make sure you end the processes iPodService.exe, iTune.exe and iTuneHelper.exe from your task manager. Right click the blackra1n.exe (Make sure it is in the root of your main hard drive) and go to run as... uncheck the box with protect you data. This should enable you to run it. this should run it. You will encounter the itune connect screen but after 5-10 seconds, it goes to geohot. Hope this help everyone with the same problem as me. I am using Win XP SP3

      Wow. Nice work. I've been having some problems getting it to work on my 3g and computer running Vista, so I decided to bring it over to my parents XP machine. Still wouldn't work. Turns out their iTunes was only 7, so that would explain part why I could not get it to even RECOGNIZE my phone as a phone and not a "camera" when it was plugged it. Upgraded their itunes, and it worked like a champ. Like, I literally pushed the button, the next thing I know is that Geo's face is up on my phone and its waiting to reboot. Squee happiness lol

      Hey fellas. It worked perfectly for me on my iPod Touch 2G! Yee!

      I used Windows XP SP3, OS 3.1.2, iTunes 9. After I updated iTunes I downloaded the 3.1.2 firmware, wiped my iPod with "restore" (restored to 3.1.2), shut down iTunes, ran blackra1n and it was done in like 2.4 seconds (seriously it was done a few seconds after I pressed the button). I did right-clicke on "blackra1n.exe" and disabled the "protect my computer" option. Not sure if that helped but it worked flawlessly anyway. I'm seriously impressed -- no holding down buttons or anything, it's so quick and easy. I implore you all to donate.

      I also have to tell you guys to try the "Rock my iPhone" program instead of Cydia. I have it now and it's GLORIOUS. It's so much faster and prettier, and all the cool stuff like SBSettings and winterboard work with it just fine.

      Has anyone gotten bossTool to work after the jailbreak? I can install it but when i swipe up top in the status bar, nothing happens. There's also a bunch of other apps that won't run...

      I really hope an unlocking program/hack comes out.
      I accidentally upgraded to 3.1...(not 3.1.2) and I lost all my JB and unlock
