  • 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!

      I was really exited that i actually got it to work, and rushed my instructions. Let me try again.

      1. Put blackra1n.exe on the C DRIVE
      2. Open Task Manager and close all itunes tasks (I even closed ituneshelper, which i found under the process tab)
      3. Plug in iphone
      2. Right click on blackra1n.exe, select run as administrator
      3. The iphone then entered the whole "usb itunes logo"
      4. Hold Power and Home button.
      5. (Still holding power and home) Blackra1n gives you a message like "you have jailbroken, wait for reboot" (this shows on your computer)
      DO NOT CLOSE THIS MESSAGE OR THE BLACKRA1N

      6. When iphone reboots, open another blackra1n.exe (as admin)
      7. Press make it rain.
      8. CHEER!

      2) I disabled my bonjour services & unticked iPod in msconfig > services.
      3) Turned off iPhone, connected to PC.
      4) Right click Make it ra1n, Run as, untick Protect my computer. Hit ok, the click Make it ra1n.
      5) Turn on iPhone.

      From there, my iPhone turned on, Blackra1n picked it up and did its thing.
      Hope this helps!

      THIS IS THE ANSWER!!! (Windows XP, iPhone 3G)

      Right click, Run As, Uncheck Protect My Computer

      I have tried every single combination on XP (and 7), but this seems to be the answer, I can now do this without problem.

      F Geohot, I wasted 2+ hours trying to get my iphone back to being jailbroken.

      Although I got it to work last night, cydia installed improperly, and told me to restore. When I tried to run this again, to my dismay, I couldn't get a repeat of success. After doing the step above, It worked instantly, and is repeatable.

      Man look at what I missed, I'm not sure if I want to move off of 3.0.1 since I have everything I want right now.. If I do update to 3.1.2 I might wait for snow, but I love how gehot can crank these things out like he does. Its nice that he can kinda "prove a point" by making a jb where dev is having issue. both are great and no way would i ever be able to do the things they can do

      I've done 3GS's with no issues.

      Completed several 3G's now and this is how I did them

      Put Blackra1n in the C: directory
      open task manager and stop iTunesHelper module
      open iTunes and eject iphone (leave it plugged in)(then close iTunes)
      Start Blackra1n, let it go through the process and when ever iTunes tries to open, close it right away.

      There my be too many steps here but this is what works for me..

      Hope this helps!

      Has ANYONE confirmed JB of a previously non-JB 3GS 32GB model number MC***?

      ***

      Mine is a MC137LL and it will not JB. The only thing i've managed to do is hang it on recovery mode screen a number of times - at that point, blackra1n won't even recognize it; only performing the full restore gets it working again. I usually get it into that state if I hard reboot and hold down home - the voice control menu comes up after reboot, at which time it kicks into restore mode (via blackra1n) and is fully hung - hard reboots go direct to recovery screen still)...
