    4. Then power up your phone.
    5. There you go, it should work. It worked for me at least.. Twice.

    - Plugged in the iPhone
    - Started msconfig and unchecked Bonjour and iPod Service under the Services tab.
    - Started iTunes

    - Right clicked on blackra1n and selected properties. Choose Windows XP SP3 in Compability mode
    - Started blackra1n - ran as Administrator
    - Waited for it to finish
    - Installed Cydia

    thanks to the guy that first posted these instructions because they work.
    I don't suggest messing with msconfig for novice Windows users. Just go to Administrative services, then open Services, then disable Bonjour and Ipod Service. Then enable them once your are finished

    GUYS YOU MUST STOP and THEN DISABLE the Itunes Service, Bonjour, and the Ipod Service or this WILL NOT WORK.

    it only took me 10 minutes to do this because you just can't stop the services. You must disable them Itunes will start them back up for some reason

I have had no trouble in the past with GEOHOT's apps so I figured this would be easy, not really so this time, but becasue I work on PC's for a living I was able to learn a few things along the way which I think will help some folks here. so here goes.

    Installing (blackRa1n):
    1. first sync phone, then run the update and let iTunes take the phone to 3.1.2
    2. when its finished, stop the bonjour service and open BlackRa1n
    3. turn off the phone!
    4. exit itunes
    5. wait for a few seconds and turn phone back on
    6. while it boots up click on "make it rain"
    7. itunes may pop up and tell you it found a phone in "recovery mode", Just click "ok" and don't do anything else in itunes (I closed it and it reopened on it's own, and I just ignored it)
    8. look at black Ra1n and notice it says it was successful and wait for reboot.
    9. notice reboot screen with Geohot's face pic, and phone will boot to unlocked status.
    10 restart bonjour service and restart itunes, have fun!

    (this is basicaly how it worked for me minus a few trial and error steps that I went through)

    Now the App installers (this is really the part I figured out!) if you install more than 1 installer from BlackRa1n at one time Cydia and it apps will fail!!! if you install them 1 at a time this should not happen and will make the apps like backgrounder and such work the first time you update! yes they all still work in 3.1.2! (if you already have a failed install then keep reading I will give you the solution in a minute!)

    1. when you unlock the phone and see the screen for the first time there is a blackRa1n icon on it, run this and it will bring up a selection of app installers.
    2. (THIS IS IMPORTANT!) only install 1 installer at a time! if you had cydia before then install it first! it should then be able to recover the previous partion and work ok.
    3. you can then install the other installers 1 at a time and then install the apps as usual and all should be fine!

    Now if you already installed and selected the other installers at the same time don't fear! you can recover!

    first for those who are stuck at the "reorganizing" loop, this s a direct result of the cydia app not being able to tell what version it is, becuase ICY was installed at the same time. since there is no known cure for this via cydia, and no way to uninstall it, you simply need to go back into black rain and install it again! this time just do cydia alone!(no the others won't go away.) after running the install again then go to the icon and run it, it will open and ask about updates, select the "Full update" and go, when it reboots he springboard you can install and all the apps will work again!

    and again I emphasize, the apps all work for me(again!), and the main thing to remember is to install only one(1) installer from the list at a time to make them work correctly!

    Now I hope that this has helped some of you and if so Please give me a "thanks!" as I may not be as smart as "geohot", but I do what I can.
    you saved me! thanks

    So excuse me for asking this question but WHATS THE BIG DEAL ABOUT 3.1.2?!?!!?!?! It's not worth the headache. I'm on the 2g with 3.0 and I couldn't be happier. No "text message hacking" (3.0.1) and I don't care about arranging icons (3.1) cuz I have springback. MMS fully working thanks to a cracked swirlymms2 (purchased the original..dont get me started) and tethering? Who needs it when you have free wifi signals beating you over the head every day in the year 2009. Guys (and gals) you dont have to be on the cutting edge every three seconds just cuz apple says "here's a non essential update" not a big deal. IF IT AINT BROKE DONT FIX IT.

    Honestly, I think it just works randomly. It would explain why some methods work for some people but it won't work for other people. It worked the first time I did it, but you should try at least 3 times.

    I had to jailbreak it twice using this method because cydia didn't install properly so I did it again with my own method and it seemed to work great. But, if my theory is correct then it might just be chance. But I've already had someone say it worked for them.

    My iPhone 2G is running on 3.0.1 unlocked and activated. Can i update/restore directly (without transiting through 3.1) to 3.1.2 through itunes without losing my unlock and activation. I dont really care about jailbreaking.
    Thanks in anticipation of reply...

    SO..I felt like the program was "official" so I downloaded blackra1n off the official site which was 601mb. Tryed that one running on admin and BAM extremely fast process and it was jailbroken almost with a blink of an eye.... So try downloading the one off the official site and if you have already and failed then I apologize. This just worked so perfectly for me...
    wow thanks worked for me to mmi i think you got a bad download then uped that one cuz i got it from the mmi download and for the last 2 hours tryed every trick in the thread but first try when i downloaded from geohotz blog

    edit. nm it showed it was done but no icon appeared and now its stalling like before back to the drawing board.

    Yeah, you'll be the coolest person in the room when you pull one out and show it around, but that gets old fast when three other people have them and one person somehow has one that glows in the dark.

    okay after 30 minutes of trying, i too was getting stuck at the recovery portion. i tried swapping to different USB ports on my desktop and still no luck (32bit XP)

    then i swapped to my laptop (32 Vista) with usbports. first port, i got the dreaded "ERROR: usb open failed while sending command"

    then i connect to the next usb port.. then bam!!! success. i got the blackra1n screen on the phone in about 10sec so.. i just wanted another 30sec from there then the phone rebooted. upon reboot, i got the blackra1n icon on my screen

    i suggest.. just keep on trying different USB ports until you get it working.

    How does one go about "disabling" tethering?

    I ask because I enabled it, as the option was there, then after, POOF, no more options. Now my phone refuses to charge when connected to a computer.

    ok..FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE HAVING PROBLEMS Trying too Jail Break with Blackra1n and are STUCK on Blackra1n in the fixed RUNNING mode. TRY THIS---->
    1. Back Up your phone
    2. Turn off your Iphone AFTER your Done Backing it Up
    3. Turn off Bonjour(if your having problems looking for this.For Vista Just hit Start(Windows Button) type in the Start Search Area "Services" then look for Bonjour then Stop Serivce.
    4. After you have Done all this..Repeat as You did B4 and you Should get Geo's FACE on your Iphone..And then once it's done rebooting look for the blackra1n App.

    This did the trick for me. 3G, 3.1.2, running Vista Home Premium 32-bit. Tried all the other suggestions but this one worked the first time I tried it. Installed Cydia. Re-springs on its own. Loading Cydia now..... Says "Reorganizing...Will Automatically close when Done. Cydia closed.... Opened up Cydia... All is good!!! Installing ROCK.....All is good!!!!! Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
