  • 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).


    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!

    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:

    Please post your success stories or problems here.

    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

    PHP Code:

    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.

      with the 2G phone winpwn used to do this when the USB port had issues. Swap to a new port. The fix on 2g was to QUICKLY unplug and replug the usb, but I don't believe it's the same on this. Different port issue.

      Finally got it to work.

      Completely restored my iPhone 3G.
      Allowed iTunes to activate it but closed iTunes down immediately afterwards.
      Closed Firefox and all other open programs.
      Ran it and everything worked great.

      Hope this helps anybody else having issues with this. 5th time's the charm!

      People, if you have a problem and seek help, please be helpful yourself and state which OS you have and in what environment you are running. This makes it approximately 100 times easier for people (who read) to compare results and find their answers faster.

      Ok, again with the repeat/stupid question. I hit make it rain and it goes into recovery and itunes opens up saying restore. I get the message saying jailbreak is done once it reboots but it never reboots. Im using W7 and the phone is just the 3g.

      What about 2G ? how do i get an unlock for that ?

      After several months with an unjailbroken phone, I've now done my 3GS with BlackRa!n.

      Couldn't have been easier.

      All settings and apps still there + a Blackra!n icon on the iPhone makes the installation of Cydia / icy and/or Rock a breeze.

      Well done.

      Personally, I'm going to leave it a day, then if my phone doesn't spontaneously explode I shall be donating to Geohot.

      Yeah same here. I'm running Vista Home (32 Bit). I first did a restore and back-up and then it went into restore mode lunched Rain and then it want into recovery Mode. Then Rain was stuck in Run, and that's All it did. IDK..i'll try again when I get off Work today, cause its not working now.
