    RedSn0w for windows will come eventually (but planetbeing seems to be MIA so no one is sure when)- Pwnage has always been Mac only so far.

    The Dev Team warned people not to use BlackRa1n IF THEY WANTED TO UNLOCK. If you are certain you don't want to unlock ever then upgrade to 3.12 and use BlackRa1n.

    If there is the remotest possibility you might want to unlock then either find a Mac or someone with a Mac and get them to make a custom FW for you and restore it in Windows.

    3G support is very flaky - Geo couldn't unlock his own 3G before release and we assumed it was just a problem with his phone but today he had major problems with a friend of his' 3G.
    Either keep on trying, read all the advice in the BlackRa1n thread or just use pwnage.

    As Geo himself says, with a 3G you just need to keep trying. Took him 6 attempts to JB a friends 3G but it does work eventually.
    Or just use pwnage.

    thanks


    1. Restore your iphone 3g to 3.1.2
    2. Close Itunes
    3. Turn off your iphone
    4. Kill ituneshelper.exe
    5. Download blackrain, move it to the root of your C drive.
    6. Run blackrain.exe as administrator, nothing else needed !!** I did not put program in winxp compatibility mode**!!
    7. Click make it rain
    8. Hold down home and power button, as soon as you see the apple logo release the power button, continue to hold the home button.
    9. Release home button when you see geohot?s picture.
    10. Let it do its thing.

    **11.** I had to turn the phone off complete ly by unplugging USB cord. (Note Blackra1n is still running in the background)
    **12.** Plug it back in and repeat step 8.
    Geohots face came up and it rebooted!!
    BoooYaaaa!!! Finally no more itunes restore.
    When you say restore from itunes.. I hope you mean hold the shift key and select the .ipsw...that is going to preserve my cydia apps?

    Nope.... lost everything...awesome..

    It seems that everyone is having problems with the windows software while trying to jailbreak their iPhone. I am having trouble with my Mac software while trying to jailbreak. My brother (who said it was the easiest thing he's done) can't seem to figure out why this isn't working for my brand new 3G S. Maybe the software versions aren't compatible? I don't know how to check that. Anyway every time I try to jailbreak this is what happens.

    1. I connect my phone to iTunes.
    2. I bring up and click the "Make it Ra1n" button.
    3. iTunes says something about my phone being in recovery mode
    4. The icon where the USB cable is pointing towards my iTunes icon comes up on the screen and won't go away.
    5. The picture of Geohot comes up momentarily on my iPhone screen, but then goes away and the screen goes back to the USB and iTunes icon.

    From there, NOTHING works anymore. I unplug the phone, but its frozen on that icon. I turn the phone off and then on again and it goes back to that icon and is frozen in that state. The only way I can get it to work again is to restore it, and that's a pain. I've tried this four times now and it never works.

    Again, I have a MAC, not a PC. But it seems that I am having the same problem as everyone else....

    help!!

    Have you rebooted? Do you have a 3GS?
    Does it have the new iBoot?

    I was having the same problem but finally figured out what was going on. I was plugging my iphone into a USB hub and could never get past the recovery screen no matter what. However once I plugged it directly into a port on the front of PC the world became a beautiful place once more! Hope this helps someone!
