  • 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!

      which version of the iphone do you have? 3g? 3gs? Which version of blackrain do you have?

      you can hold the power and home buttons and try to get it to re-boot. If not, put the phone in DFU mode and restore in iTunes, run blackra1n again.

      OK so here i go on my 2nd use of blackra1n today... first one went good and fast but was on a 2G phone...

      now the second one on a 3G after reading back in the thread i had to try it a few times like it says on i think page 68 area and it worked like a champ after a few trys so again read back in threads first... i normally do but i didnt this time and proved i should have to myself again lol

      Thanks

      The problems with the 3G should have been fixed with RC3 - if you have the latest version it should work first time.

      Hi everyone,I am new here..

      I've previously jailbroken my iphone 3GS with OS 3.0..so is this suitable for me to upgrade to OS 3.1?
      1)I need to upgrade my OS by using i-tunes first right?(just wanna confirm) my itunes and iphone OS are still the old version fyi.
      2)What will be changed if i've upgraded my baseband?(My current baseband is 04.26.08)Will I still be able to make phone calls?I am on 2 years ATT contract btw..and I plan to unlock it once I am free of the contract..so if i upgraded it,is it possible for me to unlock it in the future?
      3)Do i need to back anything up before doing this?(Contact,apps,etc.)
      4)Is there any downside to the upgrade?Do i need to run BlackRa1n everytime i wanna reboot my phone?(I think I read it somewhere but I am not sure,it would be troublesome if that's the case,any other way to go around that?)
      5)Is internet tethering still available for OS 3.1?

      thanks a lot!

      Ok..I'm wondering..Is anyone having problems with their text after they Blackra1n theirs? Sometimes I when I read my text it's not what I wrote OR..sometimes when I get a txt I get Pict's that I sent a few days back. Is there anyway too Correct this Problem so that I can get the correct text messages and NOT..the one's I've sent sometimes 2-3 days ago? Would the New Updated Blackra1n fix this?

      Hey, I'll try to help you out question by question.

      1) yes, you should update your iTunes and update your firmware from there
      2)The baseband upgrade makes no noticable differences that you can see and so far this blackra1n jb allows for your baseband to be jailbroken
      3)Yes, you should always sync and back up your phone before attempting any jailbreak (just in case)
      4)No, you do NOT have to run BlackRa1n everytime you reboot your phone (I don't know where you might have heard that from)
      5)Internet tethering for AT&T is still not working.

      And there you go. I hope I helped!! =)

      Yes

      But to unlock you can use BlackSn0w
      3)Yes, you should always sync and back up your phone before attempting any jailbreak (just in case)
      Yes
      4)No, you do NOT have to run BlackRa1n everytime you reboot your phone (I don't know where you might have heard that from)
      The tethtered JB is only for the latest 3GS and Touch with the new iBoot, it does not affect older devices.
      5)Internet tethering for AT&T is still not working.
      Tethering can be enabled on 3.12 as it can on earlier FW

      And there you go. I hope I helped!! =)

      Maybe someone can help me out. I just purchased another brand new iPhone 3Gs and already has fw 3.1.2 installed. I have no interest in unlocking the phone however I am having an issue with Blackra1n. It will install my phone but when it reboots it stays in restore mode & I'm forced to restore. I've done this back & forth a few times and I just can't remain jailbroken. Im using the latest version of blackra1n.

      You have a tethered JB, you have to run BlackRa1n every time due to the new iBoot.

      That sux! This is the reason why I don't want to return my iPhone 3GS back to Apple for them to send me a new model as mine has a white pixel or LCD light that shows through the screen when bring colors appear.
      Hopefully someone will create a non-tethered JB soon...

      They are more likely to give you a refurb which has the older iBoot - but there is no guarantee.
