Load blackra1n (but don't click anything). close itunes if open. Run blackra1n. When itunes opens again, close it. blackra1n will hang on running... Then go into task manager and end task on ituneshelper.
Close blackra1n. Then load blackra1n again and run it again.
Don't touch the phone the entire time.

I do just love some of the selfish attitudes populating our world today. "It wont work for me, so screw the person who did the work." Ignore how many other people have been helped by this persons work, it's all a bout you. I hate Apple, and consider an Iphone no better than a toy, but I give props to a man who spends his time and effort, not only without expecting a reward, but ACTIVELY turning one down in an effort to keep free what should be free. ***** and whine all you want because something doesn't work for you, but don't detract from the time and effort someone has put in on a project to benefit the community simply for that reason.

though a mac use i think i must be ina minority when it comes to i-phones, all solutions to this problem are for PC , can anyone give advice on Mac:
i am having a similiar problem , but not exactly the same -
I get the message that Blackra1n has done its job , but simultaneously i-tunes tells me that it detecst a phone going into recovery and that it needs to be restored.
no picture of Geohot appears andi just get the plug into itunes image on phone, menawhile itunes on computer is telling me to restore.
I have tried the trick of unplugging usb and then re-initiating then plugging in , but no joy.
just going round in circles repeating the same thing!

I just read all the posts and found that running blackra1n then rerunning it when the ipod was frozen on black screen worked after a few goes.
As the previous guy said. Just keep trying.

If your phone needs a reboot, you need blackra1n, just be patient, once your phone has rebooted, make sure you have blackra1n already clicked "make it rain" so it says "waiting for device" and ur phone is plugged in. If if patient it will eventually find the phone, enter it into recovery and reboot as if nothing happened. You might need to do DFU manually and then blackra1n will see that too and proceed with it.

Ok, I had the same problem, but I was using a usb hub (the little discs that have extra usb ports on them that plug in to a usb on your computer) and I unplugged the iPod from that and directly into the usb port, solving the problem indefinitely. If you're using a hub, plug the ipod in directly to the usb ports on the computer instead.

I have a 2G iTouch model # is A1288. I recently upgraded to 3.1.3. It has never been jail broken before, how can I jailbreak it now? The video above does not load for me, (it's blocked here in China).

I am having the same problem as in this thread and am now not able to solve with any method mentioned here.
Here is what I did :
1. I had a iPhone 3G ( v3.1.2 – Modem FW 05.11.07 )jailbroken with blackra1n, working for few weeks now and I have added a lot of applications installed. However I could not unlock my phone , tried using different ways - the blacksn0w etc etc.
2. I tried to Jailbrake using blackra1n everytime and when the iPhone was up, it would always work.
3. Today I tried to play with the firmware , downloaded the custom firmware from net with a lower firmware version and it broke in the process and did not continue to restore the firmware and iPhone loaded into iTunes screen.
4. I tried running blackra1n and it would come to the screen where the it would says its rebooting and would never reboot the phone and shows the GeosHot picture and I tried several times and still shows the samething.
Can someone help please??
