  • 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!

      For anyone that still cant jailbreak (mostly 3G users),
      try it once,
      when it gets stuck hold Home and Power till it switches off,
      once it is off turn it back on,
      close blackra1n,
      open it again and press make it rain whilst its still booting.

      This worked for me after spending AGES trying to do it. I had bonjour disabled but i dont think it made a difference.

      Just gotta have the right settings! Im assuming you know to leave the port as is, and how to find the IP address, and to use root as a login and alpine or dottie as the password. On that screen with those settings inside WinSCP, there's a drop down box at the bottom labeled "File Protocol", change that to SCP. Click the SSH option on the left side, and chose "1" under Preferred SSH Protocol Version, hit the save button and login. Default for everything else should be just fine.

      This is for you and anybody else having issues jailbreaking your phone.

      Ive jailbroken 11 iPhones now, 3 of them were 3GS (including my own) and 8 of them were 3G's. All of the 3GS's jailbroke nice and smooth, and all but 1 of the 3G's I had to use a previously mentioned technique to get it to work, i also had to do this same with the purplera1n when it was released awhile back.

      1. Open iTunes and plug your phone into the computer
      2. Open black rain
      3. Click make it rain
      4. If you get stuck at the connect to itunes screen on your phone, then hold the power and home buttons to shut it off.
      5. Blackrain will say its finished and to wait for it to reboot, just hit ok and close black rain
      6. Re-open black rain.
      7. Turn the phone back on
      8. When you see the apple logo, hit make it rain
      9. If it doesnt work and you get stuck on the connect to itunes screen again, then start over from step 4. You may have to wait a random amount of time (between 1 and 10 seconds) from the time you see the apple logo. If it dont work, try and try again. Eventually it will go.
      10. If you give up, unplug your phone from the computer and turn the phone off and back on, you will be back into your 3.1.2 OS

      It's really nice that you have not only figured out how to make your font a different colour and bigger but also found out where GeoHotz was going wrong - I suggest you email him (in big red letters) as I'm sure he will be interested. Pity you didn't tell him before he wasted all that time on his friends 3G earlier on.

      Hey all,

      So I upgraded to 3.1.2 and followed it with the blackra1n jailbreak. I didn't notice it at first until last night. The battery will operate fine and then, once it gets to 50% or so the phone will shut off as if it were at 2%. When I plug it in it takes around 15 minutes to get to a point of booting back up. So it seems that my phone is thinking 50% is zero battery. I can only last a few hours because the drain rate is the same as before. I have an image to show the oddness of what's going on. Anyone else have this problem? What would the fix be?

      Attachment 387242

      As you can see from the image the phone died around 6:30. Around 12 minutes later I was booting up. Then 21 minutes later I'm back at 73%? HELP!

      OK For anyone that is having problems just download iREB the link is posted in this thread. Then just search for a Custom Restore for your device. all you need to do is open iREB put device in DFU mode click on your device then the screen will turn white then open itunes and hold ctrl and select restore pick the firmware and done. Not as fast a blackr1an but it would not work for me and this did. Give all the THANKS to creasy425 post 993.

      DOWNLOAD iREB from
      iH8sn0w
      or
      Download iH8Sn0w - iREB V3.1-2 For Windows.exe for free on uploading.com

      i had the same prob with vista 64, u have to shut down every running program before clicking "make it rain", close your file browser windows, anything running on your system tray, everything!!!! only thing that was running on mine was mcafee, worked perfectly, only took about 30 sec

      anybody else having trouble with itunes backing up thier iphones, keeps telling me it cant back up iphone "iphone" cause it is not connected, but it is
