  • 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!

      Have you downloaded the latest BlackRa1n - there were problems with the 3G and the original release but they should be fixed in the latest version.

      I downloaded the one from the website yesterday so I assume that's the latest version.

      The problems people were having have been fixed so you shouldn't have to try multiple times now.
      Have you tried rebooting your PC?
      Using a different USB port (meke sure you are not using a hub)?
      Make sure you are using the original iPhone cable (not an iPod or aftermarket cable)?

      Yeah I tried all of that. I finally got it to work. When I got stuck on the black screen I "made it rain" like 5 times in a row and the picture of Frodo finally came up.

      Glad you got it working, not sure George appreciates being called Frodo but Heh-ho.

      just got the 3gs last night. i've tried it like 3 times to no avail. i've skimmed through the boards and i've tried all the workarounds and still will not work. first time, frodo came up and said to wait for iphone to reboot. it was on the black screen for the longest. so i tried to manually to turn on but nothing happened. had to do a hard restore through itunes. tried again, but instead of black screen, connect to itunes came up. 3rd-6th time all the same with connect to itunes. what am i doing wront? i've rebooted pc several times also.

      This still won't work for me. It gets to the screen that says "Done, waiting for reboot." But it never reboots.

      I was too lazy to read through 59 more pages of quotes, so excuse me if this question was asked on pg. 37 post #5 or something.

      Has anybody tried restored their iPod/iPhone after using purplera1n? I have to send mine in for technical problems. I restored my iPod a couple days ago, and on iTunes, it was "confirming the restore with Apple". So....does that mean that Apple can now tell if you've been jailbreaking?

      if you restore it to current firmware apple/AT&T should not be able to tell. Well they did not on mine.

      For some people who are having problems, I think I might have a temporary solution. When I "Made It Rain", it worked and was jailbroken. I could install Cydia. But I couldn't REBOOT. If I turned my phone off and wanted turn it back on, it would come up with the "connect to iTunes" screen. I would then have to connect my iPhone to my computer and Make It Rain again in order for it to start. It would have Frodo in the screen for a little while but then I would get the "Slide to Unlock" prompt, just like normal. Now I just have to refrain from rebooting until a patch comes along.

      Basically, if your jailbreak says it was "successful" but won't turn back on without the connect to iTunes prompt, that means it's still in recovery mode. You need to make it rain again, and then it might work.

      Just some anecdotal advice in case someone has the same problems I had.

      ^In other words you have a tethered JB because you have the new iBoot.

      I don't know what that means but I guess so... Is there a possibilty of a fix in the near future?

      or don't reboot!!!!

      Before i traded my new bought 3gs for my buddy's older 3GS i downloaded SBSettings from cydia and it required a reboot, so i just hit the home button and just chilled. I start downloading other things from Rock and the sbsettings showed up. I don't know about winterboard but you have nothing to lose. Once you get SBSettings, you can start respringing instead of hitting home.

      No sign of a fix coming anytime soon.

      I just upgraded from 3.0 to 3.1.2 on my 3G. The jailbreak went smooth.
