  • 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!

      yes...it DOES work for 3G's....that is what I have and I finally got it to work on mine...when it freezes and blackrain says "running", and your iphone is showing the itunes/usb screen....hold the power and home buttons until it resets and you see the apple logo on your iphone....a box should pop up saying the jailbreak was successful once your iphone reboots....leave that open, while your restarting your iphone....once you see the apple screen...close blackrain, reopen black rain and hit make it rain...took me several tries but it finally worked.

      I can't get this to work and have tried all three OSs.
      Windows 7 x64
      Vista x86
      XP x86

      All three end in the same scenario of the Recovery Mode logo appearing and blackra1n freezing as "running..." without the picture of geohot.

      I've tried unticking the protection, setting compatibility, disabling the bonjour service and all other itunes services.

      Note that all those OSs were different computers as well.

      I have also tried
      Vista x64 on two computers
      xp pro x64
      I do not think it is the OS I was able to jailbreak my ipod no problem then lots of the same problems everyone else is having. Do not know what what to do. I have restored it to many times to count. ??????????????????????

      Worked great on windows 7 x64 after disabling bonjour service and running in xp sp3 mode. Reinstalled everything and I'm back as I was, just on 3.1.2!

      Hoping to update my wifes 3GS tonight.

      So it worked for me...after 20 times...I had to search through this thread for all sorts of ideas on how to get past the "Running" Screen.

      Here is what worked for me.

      1.Powered my phone off
      2.Opened Blackra1n.exe
      3.Clicked make it rain!
      4.powered on the phone holding down the power button and home button. As soon as I saw the apple logo I let go of the power button held continued to hold down the home button until Geo Hots crazy face appeared.
      6.Waited....Waited...then the little box game up on my screen telling me all was done.
      7.Waited for reboot and oh my god it was done!!


      Oh Geohot you are one slick lil bastard!

      It took awhile everyone. I will agree there are some bugs with Blackra1n, but whats a jailbreaker to do.


      Also all the methods used to try and get this working she be on the first post. It isn't one method fits all.

      I need some help. I've gone through this thread and looked for the answer to my issue, but wasn't able to find it.

      DEVICE and OS:
      3GS 16GB
      WIN XP SP3

      Yesterday, I had successfully downloaded the official 3.1.2 FW from Apple and then successfully jailbroke my iPhone. I was able to install Cydia and download stuff just fine. This morning, I had tried to download some more stuff from Cydia, but it kept crashing. I went to reboot my phone using SBSettings. When I tried to turn the phone back on, the Apple boot screen comes on for about 10 seconds, and then cuts off. The phone won't go past that point. Even after connecting to my computer, it won't do anything else. My computer won't recognize it, so I can't restore.

      Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

      For those people having problems, apparently if the model number of your iPod touch starts with MC, blackra1n will NOT work with it. The 8GB iPod touch I picked up last week is MC086 and no amount of futzing around with iTunes services, powering up the unit in a certain way, whatever, will NOT work at all. It never reboots. Don't bother trying until there is an update to blackra1n.

      As mentioned before, this form of jailbreaking doesn't allow USB type browsers to access iphone (i.e. iphone Browser, iPhone Explorer,etc.)

      Only method of connecting is through SSH atm

      This is so weird some people it works for some not some devices work some not. I am really confused with all of this. Everyone says that they fixed it and then you do what they said worked for them and it still does not work for you. Something just does not add up.

      I dont know if you read the directions or read anything about BLACKRA1N but you dont have to downgrade or have ever jailbroken your device. I suggest you do it correctly.

      UPDATE YOUR DEVICE TO 3.1.2 with itunes, plug in your phone MAKE SURE itunes is closed completely and open blackra1n and press the button make it rain. Thats it. You dont have to jailbreak prior. That was only with the PWANGETOOL.
