  • 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!

      Ok look, I got all the respect in the world for geo hot, but this release is a disaster for 7 users (at least me and most of my buddies anyhow)

      If anyone else on 7 is having issues and is running out of walls to run head first into, there is another option (program)...but seeing as I'm not about to totally jack this thread, please feel free to PM me and I will happily share what worked for me (I'd post a new thread but for some reason am not allowed too :-) )

      if you guys are still having issues jailbreaking, i suggest you search DreRandom on youtube. i couldnt jailbreak until today, and i tried his solution and it worked on the second try. read the comments if you dont get it on the first try. i posted my tweak to his fix and it works great for me! im on 3g 16g 3.1.2 on xp sp2. good luck!

      Here u go man! I had the same problem and have been searching all over the web for a couple hours trying to figure this!! luckily I came across this thread and I own 2 iPhones! on one I didn't modify the 'services.plist', but on the one that I did modify I got the following error message when I tried to connect to iTunes:

      "iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occured"

      Also when I went went to the App Store(on my phone) and tried to update an app I got this error message:

      "cannot connect to app store/itunes"(maybe it said itunes..can't remember exactly??!!)

      So, if anyone is having this problem after editing the plist, here is the unmodified file that will resolve all this!! SSH and navigate to /System/Library/Lockdown/ and replace with the file attached below..cheers

      can anyone recommend an SSH program to me?

      i've tried Putty and WinSCP and they both failed to SSH into my iphone 2g. It said Connection Refused.

      Any ideas?

      I use WinSCP and I really like it. Did you download openssh from cydia and you can also download togglessh to you can turn it on and off. I also am assuming that you know where to find the IP address of the iphone and password would be alpine. If you have done all of that just keep trying to reconnect. It will work. you will get that error but if you try to reconnect a few times it will then work.

      Hope that helps

      I did what DreRandom said but it just still does not work itunes opens automatically and tried to restore (in recovery mode). I turn the phone off then back on and it goes straight to the USB screen. I am trying to restore it again to see. This is a pain in the butt for some people. Any ideas?

      get iREB. it allows you to load a custom FW thru itunes with no errors. theres a custom FW available on TPB. iREB does not work for the 3gs, but it does support 2g and 3g iphones

      Do you have a link for the iREB? I search but could not find. TPB does that stand for The Pirate Bay?
      Thanks for the help

      google iREB3.1 and it should come up. if not lemme know and i can email you the program. and yes TPB is the "bay". search iphone ipsw and it will be the first few torrents listed. If you need a WO_ACT custom FW, i have a link for ya. WO_ACT is for those using their iphone on a supported carrier i.e. AT&T Rodgers etc...
