  • 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!

      In on of the Blackra1n posts: Apple Forums & iPhone Forums, Mods, Hacks, News, Themes, Downloads, and more! | ModMyi.com - Downloads - blackra1n v2.0 , it states that the IPT3 can be JB without the use of tethering, but i guess i've failed, b/c every-time i JB it, and then restart it, i loose the JB, and have to run Blackra1n again to make it right. Whats going on here, did i just read hope into that link were there was none?

      Success on the 3G - looks like its something to do with the USB ports on some PC's. Tried several times with my desktop (running windows 7) but nothing, tried restore still nothing. Tried it on my laptop (Vista Business) and worked first time. I have had problems connecting bus powered removable drives to the desktop (seems to be less power going through the ports)just a hunch but might be worth looking into?

      Apparently this release doesn't play well with Vista x64 and-or windows 7 x86 or x64...

      Ok people, listen up. Not sure if I'm putting this in the right spot or not, but what the hell...

      After try many many times to jailbreak my 3g with blackra1n, I finally suceeded! I had tried everything
      I found for all problems. I killed all the "apple/iPhone" crap in task manager. Didn't work.
      I tried the button trick several times. To no avail. After @50 attemps and about 12 RESTORES, the last
      thing I tried and dunno why was to TURN OFF WINDOWS FIREWALL!! She popped wide open the first
      time I tried after disabled it. Don't know 100% that did it, but I hope it helps.

      I've used blackra1n once to jailbreak my 3g so I know it works. Now---after 4hours of trying (and trying and trying and youtubing and reading this thread and trying and disabling everything under the sun in Task Manger, etc etc etc) I get the cute curly head boy to pop up with the flying iPhones under his chin and I think SUCCESS!!!! Alas...after the reboot I get nothing. No Black Rain Drop Icon...nothing. What gives?

      And yes, I realize this may have been answered already and you can make fun of/b!tch at me later....I've tried. Honestly. I've read.....and read. Got no answer. So what's up. It appears to work....then no JB after reboot. It's enough to drive a girl to drink.......

      Ok I forgot to add this.......

      When I DISABLED windows firewall and the jailbreak worked....

      I had only closed iTunes. I left all the proccesses running. Didn't kill any of them!
      I did it on XP too if your wondering.

      I'm having problems. It goes back to the "only for emergency" screen with the disk and cable logo after it does the 30 second jailbreak. What should I do next?

      Try plugging it in and opening iTunes and see if it will run the activation and open up.

      JB in less than 10 seconds on iPhone 3G S running 3.1.2 so I then ran the software on another iPhone 3G S running 3.1 that had lost the redsnow JB after accidentally upgrading from 3.0 and in about 15 seconds I was rebooting with FREEDOM! One thing I didn't expect is that my firmware is still on 3.1 instead of 3.1.2??? Works perfect though! Nothing is lost and all is good. Thanks for the download... I donated and will again for the second download. So worth it considering I thought I was stuck in jail forever.

      Is the ECID hash required to JB using this?

      All I did too JB my Iphone was turn off BONJOUR in the Service Program and it was simple. I was running Windows 7 @ the Time, so not really sure Y you'd have too turn off Windows Firewall too JB an Iphone. BUT..hey if it works it works. BUT ..I still think its just as simple too turn off your BONJOUR in the Service Program.

      Open iTunes.....
      Plug phone in....
      In the left hand pane you will see your iPhone.....
      Right click it and select "backup".....
      Jailbreak after you backup......
      After succesful jailbreak, restore from that backup.
