  • 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!

      My 2G iphone is already on 3.0. I would like to know if I use Blackra1n to update to 3.1.2 is it going to lock the phone to used for other providers. If so is can I atleast upgrade to 3.1 using other method??

      thanks

      I have a 16 GB iphone 3Gs and i had the same problems so i researched and found out how to reset your battery indicator. And it worked! All you have to do is drain your batter on your iphone leave it unplugged for 5 hours then charge it all the way up to 100% without taking it off the charger (you can still use it if you leave it plugged in). And you should notice a difference. But it is recommended to do this a few times...and at least once a month as preventive maintinence. Enjoy!

      Question: I have already updated to 3.1 and still have all my apps etc on the phone. Do i need a fresh install of the 3.1 firmware?

      So I've just updated to 3.1.2
      Ran Blackrain(which worked initially)
      Started to re-DL stuff from Icy.
      DLed Categories again and started using it.
      iPhone reboots while using categories and now will not come out of safe-mode.
      I've tried re-running blackrain to no avail.
      Still wont come out of safe-mode.

      I'm guessing a restore might be in order here....

      Where should I go from here?

      I don't know as you don't say what device or FW you are on but if I had to guess I'd say you're not on 3.12

      I'm gunna guess that you already tried to remove catagories. It could be that which is causing your phone to enter safemode. Try that and let me know

      That might not be the case though for him. As I said I would first start by removing categories and go from there.

      Works effortlessly with iPhone 3GS 3.1.2. Blackrain only jailbreaks your phone, it doesn't unlock it (other carriers). Blackrain is the best unlocking tool out there. 30 sec's and you are done!!

      Saying BlackRa1n doesn't unlock and then saying it's the best unlocking tool is a bit of a contradiction. You might like to change 'unlocking tool' to Jailbreaking tool' to avoid confusion.

      Ya your right but I think we all know what h meant he prolly meant to say jailbreaking use common sense people everything should not have to be explained

      We might do and I'm sure he does but unfortunately it only takes one noob to read that and mis-interpret it and they've locked their phone and I'm sure no one wants that.
