  • 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 was easier to use than I thought it was going to be, I was real hesitant to try it after reading all these posts but it worked instantly on the first try

      iPhone 3GS 32GB, Windows Vista SP1, newest iTunes, newest firmware

      I have an iPhone 3G. I used PKG backup (Cydia) after I did the jailbreak to restore all my previous apps and themes. Its worked without any problems so far.

      doesnt work on iphone 3g running 3.1.2 Did exactly as stated in instructions... Get hung up with phone on itunes screen and blackra1n screen gets stuck on running. Will never jailbreak like it supposed to. I have to do a master reset on phone to get back phone back to where i started at. Weird thing is when i do this...it says the jailbreak completed the second i turn the phone off. NO JAILBREAK What the heck??!!

      So this will work perfectly on an iphone purchased from the apple store with 3.1 firmware correct? The phone currently works fine on the Rogers carrier

      dude there has to be a catch to this blackra1n..... ive thought this all day. You know there has to be when you have a jailbreak that is supposed to be this quick. I hope i get this to work and hope i dont have any problems after i get it to work. Ive been waiting on this jailbreak ever since i got my phone with the 3.1 software new out of the box.

      I found no catch...it's a game of chance...it might go right through for you or you might try all day and then BAM.It's goes through.

      We all get to the same point with the 3g...stuck screen on the phone and blackra1n stuck on running...over and over.

      1. ALWAYS BACKUP iPhone/iPod FIRST!

      2. disconnect iPhone or iPod from computer and POWER OFF

      3. wait 5 seconds after it has fully powered off and put it in RECOVERY MODE by WHILE HOLDING
      THE HOME BUTTON and reconnecting USB to iPhone/iPod

      4. after recovery mode has been established (display shows iTunes logo and a USB cable open
      blackra1n and "make it rain!"


      * 32GB 3GS, iTunes was still running, but it made no difference
      ** hardware: unibody MacBook Pro with Vista Ultimate via Bootcamp and USB plugged directly into
      computer and not through a hub

      *** ALL previous Cydia programs worked for me including (and to ME, most importantly):
      Winterboard
      SB Settings
      Backgrounder
      My Wi
      PdaNet
      ******* for OS 3.0
      Cyntact
      iBlacklist
      iFile
      Lockdown
      NES, SNES, and Genesis emulators
      Status Notifier

      **** ONLY issue I found was programs including PhoneView, DiskAid, iPhoneBrowser would NOT show phone(s) as jailbroken!

      Hope this helps someone else!!

      Installed on a 3.1.2 3GS and also having issues with SBSettings and Backgrounder. Uninstalled and reinstalled several times with no solution. Would love to hear what others have done.

      Thanks.
