  • 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!

      You don't say what phone you have or what FW you are on.
      The problems with BlackRa1n are minimal and affect a very few people (I'm not sure what the numbers are now but over a quarter of a million people downloaded it on the day of release)
      Pwnage does not have the problems encountered by some with winterboard. Try that if you want to fix your problem - it's not as easy but will fix your problem.

      UPDATE!

      finally got my 3gs to work. with the iphone plugged into a computer i keep holding the home + sleep, releasing home and holding + sleep, holding home releasing sleep. i keep rotating that for a good 15 mins. the computer beep but the screen still does not turn on. on the bottom right it said my iphone was in dfu mode. open itunes or itunes open automatically and click restore and the iphone restored. i was using vista 64 bit when i did the blackra1n so i tried using my laptop with xp and it works perfect.

I restored the dam thing three times lol and realized ok somethings not right. So I saw that model MC which of course she had to get was not complatible. How the hell do we jailbreak this one?!

      I've read this thread and did everything...past 4 hours to no avail.

      I have a 16GB 3G S running Windows XP

      I've closed processes, played around with different settings and nothing.

      Any ideas? I must have ran blackrain at least 50 times.

      Any help is appreciated.

      Ugghhh why is apple so god dam annoying. And why did my friend get the only friken thing that geohot couldnt jailbreak that sucks. Also whats this bs that apple is sending new 3gs with upgraded boot roms that wont accept the jailbreak softwares??? Because you all know how friken addicting these things are she wants to buy the phone now and Im afraid shes gonna get the new one and not be able to enjoy the jailbreak bc In my opinion the phone is to boring without it. :P

      What's your iBoot version? Is the 4th digit of your serial number 4?
