  • 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!

      trust me i was hopeless for many hours, but you will get it done. just keep trying.

      well first you need to receive the window that says ""your jailbreak is done once the phone reboots""
      as long as you see this window, you are pretty close to finish.
      first tell me do you get that window or now??

      ya I did Geohot has had a track record of releasing jailbreaks that were rushed and had problems this was just another one.

      It's my fault and my stupidity for thinking he might get it right for once. So yes I called out his app for not working was I lying I think the many posts here back me up. He knows there was problems still with jailbreaking 3G iphones but he rushed it. I stated nothing that was not fact there.

      after getting stuck at the "running" window in blackrain and the itunes/usb screen on the iphone, I hold the home and power buttons, when it restarts, the box pops up that says my jailbreak is finished once the phone reboots.

      WOW

      I'm just about to donate. Works perfect on the 3GS. If anyone doesn't know yet, slingplayer works with 3g unrestrictor on 3.1.2 HAPPY DAYS

      After reading all this, I still don't want to do it. I normally run mac 10.5.8, but did the jb on winxp. I have a 3g and 2g Iphone that is basically a touch now since I last upgraded and it sounds easy. BUT I don't sync my 3g, which I use, I sync the 2g full of games, and don't really want to mix libraries. I don't know what to do.

      I'm having the same problem as he is. I get that window that you are mentioning so I closed it and then opened blackra1n again and clicked make it rain but it just brought me back to the iTunes+USB.

      By the way, I think you might have step 4 and 5 mixed up on your guide, because it is after i restart it (home+power step 3) is when the blackra1n box says 'your jailbreak is done once the phone reboots'

      So, it should read something like this: (but it still doesnt work)

      1- download and start blackra1n.
      2- you will be stuck with itunes connect recovery mode (no worries)
      3- hold power+home for 10-20 seconds til your iphone shut down.
      4- you should get a message says "your jailbreak is done once the phone reboots".
      5- start it again by holding power bottom for few seconds.
      6- quickly close blackra1n and start it again before the iphone starts to home screen.

      7- you will endup with Geohot logo picture

      thats cool, means everything is okay. don't click on ok igone that window. shut down and start your iphone. you will get apple logo will appear for many seconds (10-15 sec) before you reach to unlock slider, close blackra1n and start a new1 and quickly click on make it ra1n.

      if you get apple logo and quickly change to itunes connect recovery screen. means fail. but if it last for more time means there is hope.

      sorry about my bad english. i'm trying my best.

      I had no problem getting the jailbreak done, but now Cydia thinks my firmware is less than 3.0 and won't install anything, saying "Depends: Firmware >= 3.0"

      WTF I WANT MY 3G UNRESTRICT help please.

      anyone notice that the time it takes to respring is way faster on (3.1.2 blackra1n) then with (3.0.x with redsnow) ???

      my respring time (such as after changing a winterboard theme) is muuuuch faster.

      I reboot...the box says jailbreak is done when phone reboots, apple logo appears, and I close that box, close blackrain, open blackrain, click make it rain....then blackrain says "waiting on iphone", then goes back to the "running" with the itunes/usb screen on iphone. grrrr

      Found some info from the web which finally worked for me on my 3G!

      1 Copy Blackra1n.exe onto the root of your c drive.
      2 Shutdown itunes
      3 Control alt delete and end ALL itunes and ipod services
      4 Now run Blackra1n as admin or current user and untick protect my computer
      5 Done!

      Iv'e been trying this since 2pm today (Or yesterday now) and it finally worked!

      I think that maybe it's where Blackra1n was being ran from.Most people (including myself)I suspect were running it from the desktop.Anyway I dont care why it worked just that it finally did.Cheers.

      adelaide, I rebooted, waited a few seconds before restarting blackrain and it finally worked, got the screenshot and now have the blackrain app on my iphone, thanks for the help. I guess you just have to keep trying the same method until it works.
