  • 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!

      First of all, smooth as glass JB, amazing.

      Yet when trying to reload PkgBackup I get a message that BigBoss repo is "Unreachable"

      No idea why this is but until then I cannot restore all my stuff.

      EDIT: Its now up after a 15 min wait, all is well.

      Can someone make a new post with all the compatabilities in cydia with 3.1.2? This would be most appreciated.

      Does winterboard, gpsPhone, NES, dtunes,mxtube, CATEGORIES, appflow, Icy, ifile, screensplitr, appiconreorder, SBSETTINGS, supreme prefrences, 5icon dock, fivelrows, lockinfo, cydelete, clock hide, avplayer, fontswap, terminal, makeitmine, backgrounder, springback, poof, dock (application launching utility) SPRINGJUMPS, and flashlight work?

      Those are all of the cydia apps i currently have installed my my ipod touch first gen. If you can respond and tell me any of the list that are or arent compatibible, or if part of it works.

      Or if you can PM me that would be even more helpful becuase i plan to use aptbackup once all (or most) of those are compatible

      Also does the thing in itunes where u rearrange apps from the computer work and do cydia apps and themes show up?

      How's it goin?
      Using a 3g and xp3. Updated firmware from jailbroken 3.0.1 to 3.1.2 earlier to use blackra1n. Update went fine. Used blackra1n and it sat on "running..." (or whatever it was) for a good 10mins with the restore screen on the iPhone.

      Problem is can't even get as far as a retry because the phone wont restart, and no amount of sleep and home button pressing seems to help. Nor does pluggin it back into usb.

      Any ideas?

      If I have a factory unlocked phone can I use this to jailbreak? Do I still have to jump over the activation hurdle?...

      im on xp sp3 too and im stuck on running with iphone on recovery mode. You will have to put the iphone in DFU mode and restore it on itunes. Im going to try it again because with redsnow the same thing happens usually the first time it won't work. otherwise try it on vista or 7.

      Blackra1n finishes, no Cydia/Icy/whatever.
      XP SP3 USB1.1 (no probs with JB before)
      ITunes does pop up with 'Phone in Restore mode'.

      This is at the bottom of the message log:
      INFO: command geohot sent
      INFO: I JUST DROPPED IT LIKE ITS HOT
      WARN: wtf who called this?
      INFO: global callback finished

      EDIT: With all the newb's I hope this message doesn't get lost.

      EDIT: GOT IT! Disable your Bonjour service (MDNSResponder in TaskManager)

      There It Is.....Got It Working....However Not With Windows 7 64 Ultimate. Had To Use My Dual Boot Mac, and Use Windows XP Using The Method Listed Above...Right Click BlackRa1n, Select "Run As" and Untick "Protect My Computer and Data From Unauthorized Program Activity"

      Either Way It Works....And I Need To Send a Shout Out To GeoHOT....By Saying Thank You For Taking The Time and Releasing Such a Useful Tool.
