  • 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!

      this is a really dumb question...

      A really stupid question...

      But what is that window in screen capture showing, the one that says "ohai".

      I don't recognize it...

      Oh, and congratulations to geohot on his work!

      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
      Open itunes, let it recognize your iphone and leave it running during the whole J/B process. Then open Blackra1n "itunes must remain runing and recognizing your phone" and follow the J/B process.
      I hope it will work.

      Debating whether I should upgrade to 3.1.2 from 3.0.1. I have B2B texting plan, so I can't use MMS. Can anyone point out a significant upgrade that may be worth the hassle?

      7. itunes popped up & ignored it while it is doing its thing and it restarted on iphone with swirl with background.
      (itunes still up and ask for restore jsut click okay and ignore it)
      8. after restarts theres going to be a tear drop icon on iphone named BlackRa1n, open it and gives 3 options cydia /rock/ icy
      after installed. remove blackra1n app if you dont want no more.
      9. VOILA u got it working.


      ps. when it wasn't working .
      i tried do msconfig and disable everything do NOT disable everything. cuz it needs to recognize iphone/ipod
      i also restarted after doing that im not sure if that helps
      i used same usb port cuz i am limited with 2 and still worked but you can try different if it doesn't recognize.
      i tryed your instructions and it keeps getting stuck on the itunes/usb screen. it doesnt do anything at all. i disconnect it and it tells me that its done but still on itunes/usb screen. i have to perform a hard restart in order for it to work again because itunes doesnt even read that its connected. can someone please help me with anything im doing wrong or need to do. thanks alot guys!!!

      Not sure if this has been posted - I looked over most of the posts and found nothing.

      Anyhoo... I just tried to do this Blackra1n thing for the past 6 or 7 hours and nothing. The problem was I was trying to do it via VMWare. Never worked. Finally I switched to Bootcamp and it literally did everything in about 10 seconds. Just installed Cydia. Amazing.

      Just wish I didn't waste my entire Sunday in VMWare.

      Blackra1n ran flawlessly.
      Cydia install went smooth.
      Winterboard ran perfect.


      ...no support from iPhoneBrowser.

      Any idea on how I can get around not having access to my files from my dekstop?

      blackRa1n - right click and opened PROPERTIES
      [clicked unblocked on bottom], applied changes

      hope someone else finds this helpful..

      Unsurprisingly Geo has gone to ground.
      There is no doubt he is a genius and BlackRa1n is working for 90% + of people but now it's released he's not around.
      I told him last night that I thought a staggered release would be best - I was probably wrong.
      But I wish he was around to answer the support questions - or at least give us an idea, now.

      There is no doubt in my mind that he is bloody good though.

      This is how I made it work with Windows 7 RC1 Ultimate 32bit and my 3G 8G with 3.1.2, if it can help anyone:

      - Plugged in the iPhone
      - Started msconfig and unchecked Bonjour and iPod Service under the Services tab.
      - Started iTunes
      - Right clicked on blackra1n and selected properties. Choose Windows XP SP3 in Compability mode
      - Started blackra1n - ran as Administrator
      - Waited for it to finish
      - Installed Cydia

      Enjoyed my jailbroken 3.1.2 3G

      Winterboard, Categories, SB Settings and everything else I got of Cydia on 3.1 works flawlessly
