he is a qenius. fastest jailbreak i have ever seen. and i dont know what everyone is having a problem with. I did this with a 3gs on vista and with a 3g on xp. update itunes, and update your phone to 3.1.2, close itunes only (you dont have to end any processes at all), run blackra1n and 30 seconds later its jailbroken. its that easy people. and for the idiots that call it worthless cause it doesnt unlock the phone. guess what this jailbreak isnt for you then its for all us that just bought a 3gs that was stuck on 3.1 with no option to jailbreak till now

Right click blackra1n.exe
Click run as
Uncheck "Protect my computer..."

Please help me.
I run a Mac, but the girlfriend has a PC. So I updated to 3.1.2 on my Mac, backed up, then took the phone to the PC where I downloaded blackra1n.
Then, I opened iTunes and blackra1n, clicked "make it rain" and the phone enters recovery mode with blackra1n saying "Running" and nothing happens. When I unplug the phone, it does right back to it's original state.

I AM ON VISTA 64bit SP2 w/ ITUNES 9 [latest]. AND MY PROBLEM IS ON SOLVED.
1. control alt deleted and opened up task manager
2. services tab - STOPPED -> ITUNES SERVICE & Bonjour
3. Closed itunes & exited it
4. blackRa1n - right click and opened PROPERTIES
[clicked unblocked on bottom], applied changes
5. right cilck ran as admin
6. presssed make it ra1n.
7. itunes popped up & ignored it while it is doing its thing and it restarted on iphone with swirl with background.
(itunes still up and ask for restore jsut click okay and ignore it & [i would not and did not mess with it or restore it on itunes when it was in action with swirling thing on iphone)
8. after restarts theres going to be a tear drop icon on iphone named BlackRa1n, open it and gives 3 options cydia /rock/ icy
after installed. remove blackra1n app if you dont want no more.
9. VOILA u got it working.
ps. when it wasn't working .
i tried do msconfig and disable everything do NOT disable everything. cuz it needs to recognize iphone/ipod
i also restarted after doing that im not sure if that helps
i used same usb port cuz i am limited with 2 and still worked but you can try different if it doesn't recognize.
Did not change compatability towards type of os windows i.e. 95/xp/98 etc on blackra1n.

How long does it take to jailbreak, I have a 3G, updated to 3.1.2 in itunes, and then opened black rain, clicked make it rain, and has been running for 10 minutes now, and screen on iphone just shows the cable and itunes logo, I guess "connect to itunes"? Any ideas?
