  • 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!

      he is a qenius. fastest jailbreak i have ever seen. and i dont know what everyone is having a problem with. I did this with a 3gs on vista and with a 3g on xp. update itunes, and update your phone to 3.1.2, close itunes only (you dont have to end any processes at all), run blackra1n and 30 seconds later its jailbroken. its that easy people. and for the idiots that call it worthless cause it doesnt unlock the phone. guess what this jailbreak isnt for you then its for all us that just bought a 3gs that was stuck on 3.1 with no option to jailbreak till now

      Please help me.

      I run a Mac, but the girlfriend has a PC. So I updated to 3.1.2 on my Mac, backed up, then took the phone to the PC where I downloaded blackra1n.

      Then, I opened iTunes and blackra1n, clicked "make it rain" and the phone enters recovery mode with blackra1n saying "Running" and nothing happens. When I unplug the phone, it does right back to it's original state.

      HELP.

      Not sure what you want but just because it doesn't work for you doesn't make it a crock of...

      As you haven't mentioned what device or OS you are using am I right to assume you are trying it on a Palm Pre with BeeOS?

      I AM ON VISTA 64bit SP2 w/ ITUNES 9 [latest]. AND MY PROBLEM IS ON SOLVED.

      1. control alt deleted and opened up task manager
      2. services tab - STOPPED -> ITUNES SERVICE & Bonjour
      3. Closed itunes & exited it
      4. blackRa1n - right click and opened PROPERTIES
      [clicked unblocked on bottom], applied changes
      5. right cilck ran as admin
      6. presssed make it ra1n.
      7. itunes popped up & ignored it while it is doing its thing and it restarted on iphone with swirl with background.
      (itunes still up and ask for restore jsut click okay and ignore it & [i would not and did not mess with it or restore it on itunes when it was in action with swirling thing on iphone)
      8. after restarts theres going to be a tear drop icon on iphone named BlackRa1n, open it and gives 3 options cydia /rock/ icy
      after installed. remove blackra1n app if you dont want no more.
      9. VOILA u got it working.



      ps. when it wasn't working .
      i tried do msconfig and disable everything do NOT disable everything. cuz it needs to recognize iphone/ipod
      i also restarted after doing that im not sure if that helps
      i used same usb port cuz i am limited with 2 and still worked but you can try different if it doesn't recognize.
      Did not change compatability towards type of os windows i.e. 95/xp/98 etc on blackra1n.

      How long does it take to jailbreak, I have a 3G, updated to 3.1.2 in itunes, and then opened black rain, clicked make it rain, and has been running for 10 minutes now, and screen on iphone just shows the cable and itunes logo, I guess "connect to itunes"? Any ideas?
