well im now even more confused! right after my last post like 2 mins ago, i un hooked my iphone and the blacra1n window pops up saying
"enjoy your jailbroken phone"
Your jailbreak is done once the phone reboots.
If this was the simplest jb ever then please donate.....
if you paid for this software, demand a refund.......
available free from blackra1n.com, funded soley on after the fact donations.."
But its not done, no cydia, the phone is just the same as it was after upgrade to 3.1.2!!
What goes on? have i missed something?

Doesn't bypass the iPhone baseband update... Completely worthless.

It worked for me by being persitent less than 5 minutes. I'm using windows 7 and what I did was run blackrain when the iphone turn into recovery mode it froze so i closed blackrain I opened itunes and rebooted the phone into recovery mode when i did that i left itunes open and started blackrain at the same time and it worked.

I'm sure there are plenty of generous people out there willing to help you but are tired of asking these basic questions. If you don't post these things then most people that CAN help will just ignore you.
Also, don't listen to those on here that call you a noob for asking questions, they had to ask people and search for information at one time too.

In geohotz case maybe there is an I in team. Commendable work as usual by the tyke. I plugged my phone in and hit "Make it Ra1n" and 10 seconds later it reports back that my phone was successfully jailbroken. It rebooted with the BlackRa1n.com jpeg and there it was the BlackRa1n app. This was done on windows 7 x64.

So can we insert custom boot logo or does it have one and does this jb wipe everything and we have to sync all our stuff back on?

10-11-2009, 10:39 AM #236
sorry. Jahooba, your right, i am just so stressed out....
iPhone 3G 16G
Widows vista 32bit
upgraded iphone to 3.1.2 through itunes > downloaded blackra1n > closed broswer > Disabled bonjour services/ipod services in msconfig >launched Blackra1n says running and iphone screen stuck on itunes/USB logo.
The last time i tried, when i unplugged iphone from usb, a box poped up saying JB was done, but no difference!
Now can anyone help? If so thank you.
Edit to say, just done it again, and again the pop up says |JB done!! but when i click OK the smaller Blackra1n box says Done, waiting for re-boot.

Last time, when GeoHot came out with purplera1n, the Dev Team released an updated redsn0w for us to use.
