  • 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!

      First, fully restored my official unlocked 3GS 32GB from 3.1 OTB to 3.1.2 using iTunes on Win7 x64. Once is done, I closed all the running program then I ran the [blackra1n] program and hit the [make it ra1n] button. Bam! my phone is recovery mode instantly and stay there for a few seconds and then the phone reboot by itself. After the phone is rebooted and will be at the iTunes+USB logo. The process took less than a 30 secs(not included restore the firmware). Sweet! freaking simple jailbreaking I ever did.

      At the iTunes+USB logo I just run iTunes program and iTunes activated and unlocked for my phone. After that I just run [blackra1n] on my iPhone desktop/dashboard and install Cydia from there. Once Cydia is installed I just removed the [blackra1n] on the desktop/dashboard.
      Note: Don't get confused when I said iTunes unlocked my phone. Is has nothing to do with this [blackra1n] program whatsoever. REMEBER my phone is official unlocked from Apple.

      There! That is how I did it on my phone.

      NOTE: I saw a lot of peoples having problem with stuck at iTunes+USB logo. Well, that is how this program works. This program(blackra1n) is not [hacktivated] that is why you guys seen the iTunes+USB logo. At this point, you need an at&t activated SIM card or at&t official carrier in order to activate the phone through iTunes. Otherwise you will be stucking at iTunes+USB logo.

      I seen someone asking UNLOCKING with this [blackra1n] program. NO! NO! NO!. Read the first post! THIS PROGRAM IS FOR JAILBREAKING ONLY! ONLY! ONLY! REMEMBER THAT. Just a reminder.

      Your sources?
      Plenty of people here has mentioned the Bonjour service, so it's not like you came up with the idea. And besides, I did this several hours before you posted your post.

      Omg! You think you're the only one who knows about Msconfig and services tab?

      But I can rephrase and say that I used Control Panel -> Administrative tools -> Services. Would be the same thing but a slightly different procedure.

      1. control alt deleted and opened up task manager
      2. services tab - STOPPED -> ITUNES SERVICE & Bonjour
      3. Closed itunes & exited it
      4. blackRa1n - right click and opened PROPERTIES
      [clicked unblocked on bottom], applied changes
      5. right cilck ran as admin
      6. presssed make it ra1n.
      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.
      Did not change compatability towards type of os windows i.e. 95/xp/98 etc on blackra1n.

      -------------------------------------------> please hit "thanks" button next to quote
      Finally worked for me!

      1st tried on win7 64, then on Vista 32, then winXP 32, dehactivating ipodsevice, ituneshelper, itunes..., running as admin, compatibility mode, nothing worked for me...

      Then I just placed everything like it was (restarted pc, stoped Bounjour from sevices instead from task manager) and set the blackra1n comp. options unchecked. Unblocked it in propreties, run as admin. iTunes started right after that and I finally saw his face on my iPhone... After sooooooooo many hours (started at 2p.m., it's now 11p.m. here), I've never ben so happy to see a guy's photo... might be turning ***...

      EDIT : Worked on win7 64

      It worked the first time for me on Vista x64 without doing anything except closing iTunes.

      Now only to wait until the apps work again. Pretty much everything I used no longer works.

      Well screw it. I was happily sitting on 3.0.1 with a jailbreak and all was good in the world.

      Thought this guys actual app would do the trick and allow me to be on the newest update and jailbroken but clearly his app isn't ready for primetime. And no trick anyone is posting is doing anything.

      I will wait till the iPhone dev team releases a new version of redsn0w or something at least they will ensure it works 100% before releasing software to everyone.

      For now I sit on 3.1.2 with NO jailbreak and I guess I will just have to wait. I have had to end up restoring my phone who knows how many times today cause no matter what when blackra1n makes my iphone restart I get stuck on the itunes logo with the white usb cable. No trick gets me around that.

      And word to Geohot. Releasing an application then practically falling off the face of the earth isn't good for potential users of your software.

      Running win7
      Ran blackra1n as XP3 comp
      After a million tries I reenabled all the services with the exception of bonjour.
      That seemed to work.

      Can't remember which post it was but thanks for that tip

      if you see a blackra1n app on your iphone then you did it right.
      other wise just do it again.
