Thread: blackra1n Released! Jailbreak 3.1.2 For All Devices

  1. #741
    took me a couple of tires but i got it to work by manually putting the phone into recovery mode before running BlackRa1n.

    for a refresher...

    -unplug your phone from your computer then power it off.

    -Then while holding the HOME button plug the phone back into the computer and that should power it backup. just hold the home button for like 20-30 sec until recovery pops up on you computer then run blackra1n.

    worked for me hope it helps someone else.

    **oh and im using windows 7

    Really not happy with my non-jailbroken 3g on 3.1.2 now.
    anyone complaining about a "free" piece of software is a sure sign of idiocy.

    Jailbreak went smooth, 45 seconds on Vista x64 OS - 16GB 3GS. I can confirm SB Settings and Five Icon Dock are not functioning.

    I've not had any problems with either App store apps or cydia apps on 3.12 - but then I didn't use BlackRa1n

    Tou the guy saying he should have done more Beta testing first - as of 12 hours ago BlackRa1n had been downloaded over 1/4Million times. The failure rate is very small. For most people it has been a huge success.

    If everyone who uses it donates $1 to Geo he'll be able to buy a heck of a lot of bagels...
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    What are you guys using to get access to the services.plist? What steps to take to do this successfully? Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Successful Jailbreak!!

    Talking Worked!
    Mine wasn't working for the longest time, couldn't figure out what to do, tried about everything this forum had. Then I found one that I followed and it worked. Pretty much said this:

    Was working on Windows Vista Home
    1. Plugged phone in, and closed itunes.
    2. Started blackra1n. Click make it ra1n.
    3. Wait for it to go into DFU mode, when it stopped, i started a new blackra1n with that one still saying wait for reboot.
    4. Restart the iphone, and when it starts back up, click make it ra1n again.
    5. Once it did that, then I saw the blackra1n logo and it worked. If you have any problems, just message me, feel free to help out.

    Default Jailbreak maybe successful.....
    got through the blackra1n fun...wish i could give better advice to all except run through all the methods posted until you see GeoHotz's Elijah Wood-like picture looking at you.

    Hopefully Cydia and Icy behave too...

    Most posts indicate that the phone's built in tethering capabilities were lost with the 3.1 update so no, buit in tethering will not work. You can, however, use PDANet which is a great alternative.

    One user claims that he is using tethering on 3.1.2 (search for it) but also claims that he did not know exactly how he got it so he can't really help out.

    To anyone else out there that may still care... I just got blackra1n to work for me after 24 hours of failed attempts and recovering the phone on vista.

    I just tried it on my xp netbook, to which I had never connected my iphone to in the past. I did a fresh install of itunes, connected my phone so the drivers would get installed. I didn't sync the phone at all, but just got the itunes splash showing that the iphone was recognized and communicating with itunes.

    Closed itunes, left every process running, and just ran blackra1n after "unblocking" it in properties. Five seconds later it was jailbroken. Itunes tried to give me some popups but I ignored them. Voila.

    As to why it works for some and not for others on either vista or xp, it must be something to do with your initial itunes setup and the first time you plugged the phone into the machine. I remember that my vista machine gave me the toughest time initially recognizing my phone as anything other than a camera. While the xp netbook immediately recognized the phone for what it was. Just a thought... there has to be more to this than just random luck...

    Default Blackra1n
    the only problem i had with downloading the blackra1n was that i lost all my contacts when it happened, but the fix to that was importing from your sim card after the jailbreak, so make sure your contacts are updated on your sim before breaking!
