  • 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!

      Just a warning...Don't use ICY from Blackra1n only because it will eventually reek havoc to your iPhone and you will have to restore your iPhone 3G...not sure about other iPhone models but this version is incompatible with Rock Apps and Cydia. I am now in the process of restoring again because I didn't realize this and it causes funny behavior. I just want to let people know.

      Other than that, blackra1n is by far the best jailbreak known to man. Thanks Geohot!

      like this. after u restored to 3.1.2. close itunes. then blackrain it wait until process jailbreak finish.. now the itunes open by itself. click to close the itunes again. n let the jailbreak finish till the end. i meant until u see inside ur iphone there are blackrain icon is there. then u remove usb. ur done. now u start open blackrain icon n install either cydia or rock or both. but dont icy. good luck.

      3.1.2 still can tether. just install mywi.

      if you use a tool like ultrasn0w to unlock, then you need to use pwnagetool, or have a freind with a mac use pwnage too; and biuld you a custom FW so that you don't lose ur unlock

      i juz don't understand the statement

      WARNING:
      iphone with unlockers. Do not upgrade the baseband with itunes
      what does unlockers means?

      Factory Unlock - which already been unlocked by Apple?
      or
      Software Unlock - which we hack to make it unlock?


      because i hav iphone from singapore and australia both has been unlocked by apple... is that matter with this baseband problem?

      The actual quote from the first post in this thread was
      Warning 3g and 3gs unlockers
      Unless you are quoting something different?

      Without the word 'with' it means people who have unlocked their own phones using UlraSn0w.

      If your phone is/are officially unlocked by Apple you have no problem with the unlock.

      BlackRA1n will be fine on the 3GS and should work, might take a few attempts, on the 3G.

      Okay so after countless amount of iPhone jailbreaks using on many different versions it seems like 3.1.2 beat me.
      After clicking on Make it Rain i'm stuck at recovery mode. I am def no need to this (I even wrote this tutorial in the past Jailbreaking your iPhone 2G/3G using redsn0w for Windows ) but after many different tries, holding Power and home till the apple logo comes up, copying blackra1n.exe to the C drive, closing all apple related services and even disabling the firewall(s) I cant get past recovery mode...
      Any other suggestions?

      Tried a different XP machine and it worked at the first try....

      You can either continue trying or wait fro the new version of BlackRa1n tomorrow which fixes these issues.

      Is anyone experiencing battery drainage while on standby? If I leave my fully charged iphone unplugged, it will drain at least 15% after 8 hours of sleep. Please help! I'm on 3.1.2 and blackra1n.

      I am getting 12% down with moderate usage over 12 hours (9AM-9PM), which is superior compare to my "old" 3G 8GB which was down 27% in just 6 hours of mild usage. If myphone is on sleep mode (during the night) it drops cca 2-3% from battery.
