  • 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!

      Hi Guys, just tried on my 3G 16GB worked perfectly, took about a minute at most.

      Running Win7 RTM 32bit, right clicked the exe and ran as admin, works very well, installed cydia and the installd file.

      Thnaks Blackra1n you are the best.

      Chris.

      Yay! Firstly Geohot is a genius! Secondly, thanks to everyone that posted as it was a combination of things that worked for me. I have 3G, and running vista 32bit!

      I disabled all itunes services via msconfig- start menu...run...msconfig.

      I disabled also 'bonjour' in services. I restarted mc pc after fully restoring and updating.

      Itunes completely off and all programs off, ie web browser, etc and ran that baby!

      Its all good now. Thanks again!

      can anybody create a list of what cydia apps are currently not working with the newest firmware after this jailbreak? I had read that backgrounder wasnt working on 3.1 and a few other apps were not working either not sure if they were resolved a list for incompatible apps with 3.1.2 would be great thanks!

      Brilliant Geohot!
      Updated to 3.1.2 on my Mac, jump to my PC Win XP Home, ran blackra1n and in 25 seconds I was jailbroken! Installed Cydia and restore using PkgBackup and all of my apps and settings back exactly the way they were on 3.0.1, NICE!
      Thanks Geo . If you can guys, don't hesitate to donate.

      SHOCKING. It doesn't actually work with Windows XP SP3.
      Just tried with Vista Home Premium SP1, and it worked. Weird.

      But no problems. It's working!

      No issues with any of my Cydia apps on the latest 3.1.2 blackra1n JB (3Gs).

      THANK YOU to geohot and PkgBackup for making this the easiest and smoothest JB experience yet!
