Thread: JB'ing 2G in 3.1 w/ Blackrain = Frozen

    Default JB'ing 2G in 3.1 w/ Blackrain = Frozen
    This is my first iPhone and first post so I hope someone reaches out to me. I recently received a 2G iPhone with 3.1 firmware. I used Blackra1n for JB and it went smooth except that I can not make calls. I have a 3G sim in it from my old Vu. I downgraded to 3.0 through the Dev Teams web site and restored it. I then tried to Blackrain it again. It was unsuccessful. Blackrain froze on "restoring" and my phone is froze on the screen telling me to sync with iTunes. The computer does not recognize it neither does iTunes.

    Is my phone a paper weight now?

    and to add to my situation, i could not turn it off, or put in recovery mode, so now the battery died and I plugged it up to the charger and got no response.

    Blackra1n only works on 3.1.2 so you need to restore to a clean version of 3.1.2 then use blackra1n. Although I would recommend using redsn0w instead.

    Force into recovery mode by holding power and home for about 20 seconds till you see the connect to iTunes logo.
