  • 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!

      If the phone hasn't been activated then RedSn0w should hactivate it. Restore and start from scratch.

      well i activated it on tmobile and it will make and recieve calls but thats about it. itsjust emergency only. but i tried putting an unactivated at&t sim in it and when i plug it in to restore it itunes just takes me to the activation screen it will not let me get to the restore page. i tried unlocking it with the att sim on redsn0w but it didnt work. im guessing its because the same firmware isnt on the phone that im trying to unlock it to. and since i dont know what firmware is currently on it i have no idea what to do. again im sorry this is my first iphone so im lost. thanks again man.

      Take out the SIM and plug it in to iTunes - with no SIM, does it let you restore? If so restore to 3.13 then run RedSn0w using the 3.12 (not 3.13) ipsw

      Never had a 2G (started out with the 3G, now have 3GS) so I don't speak from experience, but can't you just download the 3.1.2 firmware from the trusted info --> community section of the dev-team's website, then do a shift-restore to load the old firmware from itunes and run redsnow? All this business about not being able to restore back to old firmware unless you're registered on cydia is only an issue for the 3GS, correct?

      If you're new to all this, the place to start is the official dev-team website. All sorts of great, and most importantly, trustworthy, info is there.

      Good luck...

      3GS - Can't restore to anything other than latest FW without SHSH on file

      3G - Can restore to any FW but can't downgrade BB so should not upgrade to 3.13 if unlock is needed.

      2G Can restore to any FW and BB has not been upgraded and phone can be unlocked on any FW.

      RedSn0w will JB the 3G or 2G on 3.13 but not the 3GS

      When i plug it in with out a sim itunes says there is no sim card in the iphone you are trying to activate disconnect and insert sim card. and there is a tiny lock up in the right hand corner. i tried unlocking it with no sim and it still isnt working. im so lost and a little worried im not gunna be able to fix this. if i could just find out what firmware is currently on it i'd be golden. but since the seller doesnt seem to answer their email i have no idea what to do. is there anything else you can think of that i could try doing? and thanks again for all your help.

      Does it not give you the option to restore? If not, put the phone in DFU mode and restore.

      Guys I need help..

      Got a 3GS running 3.1.2 and on the 5.11.07 base. All was good until today when i had to reboot. Wasn't getting signal at all for some reason.. normally rebooting solves the problem. Oh I jailbroke my phone using Blackra1n and it was a tethered break.

      Here is what happens.. Reboot and phone enteres recovery mode.. try to run blackra1n, geohot's logo comes on for like 5 secs then nothing.. as in black. I tried doing it on a windows (used a mac previously) but no go as well.

      Any idea what is going on??!! Any help is appreciated. Been out of the jailbreak loop for some time so don't really know what options there are.

      I'm assuming worse case scenario would be that I have to reset to factory settings. Is there any chance I would be able to restore to my last sync-ed settings? I don't want to loose my applications etc.. =(

      What should I do?

      I'm in the EXCAT sme situation, and for some reason, I can't find my old 3.1.2/5.11./07 ipsw to save my life right. I'm in DFU Mode right now, and I'm trying to download another 3.1.2 ipsw I found in the Firmware Downloads section here, but I don't know if it's the right baseband. Cross your fingers.

      i realize this is a big thread so i may not get noticed, but this is important information i believe everyone will be interested in, my iphone 3gs 32gb running 3.1.2 is jailbroken with blackra1n, i read up on it about the whole tethered thing, so i kept my phone on for a while, then it started getting all laggy and glitchy, so i decided to turn it off and back on, well fully expecting to have to restore it, i was amazed and the fact that nothing happened, i am still jailbroken and can restart my iphone all i want without losing the jailbreak, idk what happened, im not complaining, but im curious as to what happened, thank you for reading

      Presumably you have the early iboot then.

      You have to put blackra1n in same folder as iTunes. Then run it and it should work fine. That's what I did when I was on 3.1.2 back in the day.

      I am slow on adapting new OS. I love how my Iphone works and enjoy all the jail broken and unlock benefits. I am too afraid to screw things up. Upgrading to 3.1.2 is required to 4.0 as I read all the posting. Trying one step at time. I used this website to jailbreak my 3.1.2. Extremely easy. JailbreakMe
