  • 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!

      I especially loves the questions where the person can't even figure out how to download the program from Geo's site.

      Jeeze, ever use a computer before? Know what a mouse is for? How do they find sites like these yet don't get that clicking something on a page will make it do "something"?

      Amazing program...worked flawlessly (windows 7 3G(S) )... I remember the first jailbreak; about 30 steps, lots of terminal commands...

      I do have one problem... I used AptBackup for my Cydia apps; after running this, no cellular service (I was activated and had service before that)... Any ideas.. I can always reinstall everything manually, but would prefer not to.


      thanks.

      ATT: staff... I would add this to the first post.

      Here HOW you get CYDIA AND ICY to work together on 3.1.2 with BlackRa1n.
      Otherwise Cydia and ICY will conflict.
      Do not install them both via BlackCrap


      After you run BlackRa1n from your PC you will have the blackRa1n APP Installed which will allow you to install Cydia, Rock, and ICY.

      1.
      INSTALL CYDIA ONLY using BlackRa1n
      ONLY, only, only. I cant stress that enough.

      2.
      after you install CYDIA, it is good to delete BlackRa1n by using Cydelete.

      3.
      You must then install ICY via CYDIA
      Cydia, not blackra1n.

      Then you should have no issues, I dont.

      Hello everybody and first thanx to geo!!!! The programm worked as described. iphone (still normal powered) plugged into the laptop hit the button and the rain stated to poor. Minute later the device was jailbroken with the black rainy installer for cydia, icy and rock. As far as i know right now is that everything is working. Sbsettings, irealsms, intellyscreen etc. No hangups or crashes.

      My iphone is a 3G(S) with FW 3.1 BB is the latest one out of the box. Got that phone 2 weeks ago when i extended my german t-mobile contract. So i have an official iphone.

      And i will take off my hands from that FW 3.1.2 update

      Keep the iPhone free!!!!!!

      Not true.

      It might not have been straight forward for you, it was for me as well as many other 3G owners.

      For some reason, when I start cydia after this jb, it says reorganizing, will automatically close when done and it just resprings. every time i try to start cydia, this happens...

      wtf?

      i'm on XP 32bit

      and its not a space issue cuz i have 7.8 gb left...
