  • 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!

      3gs 3.1 jailbreak worked fine but when I rebooted after I installed cydia it just hung on the apple logo. Trying a restore now and will report results.

      It's strange that it is the 3G that has problems. We came to the conclusion that it was just a problem with Mr. Hotz' own 3G why he couldn't get it to work. Like he said, there's no reason it shouldn't work....
      Maybe a new thread should be started just to try and resolve the issues with the 3G.
      It seems to work flawlessly on all other devices.

      I'm running x64 Windows 7 and was able to update just fine. I did have to go into DFU mod to restore my phone back to factory settings first though. Just clicking on "upgrade" or "restore" in iTunes gave me an error, so I just went into DFU mode and then had iTunes recognize it and then restore that way. Then used blackra1n after it restored. Works like a charm! Hope this helps some of you.

      I dont either, My 3Gs is working fine on 3.0.1. And I can unlock if ever I want. I figure, if its not broken ,Why fix it. I run alot of apps from Rock my phone, including cydia and other apps. I still have my MMS ,and just to say, it works perfect. I have no complaints on my Iphone. I could try it on my Daughter's Iphone 3G she is running in a legit non jailbroken iphone.

      It seems to be something with the 3g, Myself and others seem to be having the same issues. If you go back a few pages someone managed to do it by restoring, and he gave some directions for doing that. Post up what your workin with so that anyone that anyone that can help has a better idea of what to help with.

      Heya I have updated and restored my iphone to 3.1.2 and followed the very simple instructions for installing blackra1n, but when I try to 'make it rain' itunes pop's up when its in recovery mode and says...'itunes has detected that an iphone is currently in recovery mode...' etc, and requires me to fully restore again using itunes. The phone appears to be wiped of data at that point. I have done this several times and it is time consuming. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh! Please HELP!
