  • 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).


    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!

    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:

    Please post your success stories or problems here.

    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

    PHP Code:

    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.

      ...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!
      click the x to close out/quit iTunes and continue with blackra1n

Post up what your workin with so that anyone that anyone that can help has a better idea of what to help with.

      I had to DFU restore to get my phone back. Once I did that I used blackra1n and all is fine now. reboots every time.

      I was jb'd running 3.01. I upgraded to 3.1.2, ran blackra1n (run as XP under Windows7, 32 bit), reinstalled Cydia, biteSMS (beta), 3G Unrestrictor (purchased version), MyWi, RockApp, Intelliscreen, etc. All seems to be working well. VonAgent, another RockApp, nevers comes back after an upgrade like this.

      The only 'issue' I've seen is with RockApp. Every time I start it, it keeps telling me it's detected an inconsistency with installed packages and asks if I'd like to reinstall all apps. I did this once and it reinstalls all the same apps Cydia did. Plus Cydia thinks MyWi is at a backlevel release.

      My guess is RockApp and MyWi need upgraded to support 3.1.2 correctly. I uninstalled MyWi until they get this straightened out.

      EDIT 1: Just noticed when I go into App Store, Updates it reports it can't connect to iTunes store yet I can search the store and installed DropBox.

      EDIT 2: I think letting RockApp reinstall all the Cydia apps screwed Cydia up. Cydia now thinks everything it installed needs to be uninstalled. Since everything seems to be working. I will let well enough alone for now.

      Edit 3: Uninstalling MyWi resolved the Cydia issue.

      My first JB!! Done in less than a minute!

      Laptop is - Windows 7 64bit

      Iphone is - 3G 16GB on 3.1.2 Never been JB

      restarted laptop and once it was at desktop I closed every program I could that opens in background

      then I right clicked the balckra1n icon and properties>compatibility>run in xp sp3

      then I ran the program as administrator just to be on safe side.

      Let it rain!!

      does this cause issues with the internet connection like purplera1n (I've had to restart both edge and wifi many times to get internet working but only after jailbreaking with Purplera1n )?

      Okay, I have tried the other suggestions of closing down everything running other than blackra1n, but no rain is coming. I have 3G iphone, so I guess that's the problem right there! I have restored my phone after it crashes several times via itunes and it takes ages! Is there a quicker way? Please make it simple!
