Ok, um, I did the whole jailbreak thing but the blackra1n app is still open and says done, wait for reboot. My iPod is on but there's no blackra1n icon yet. What's with that?

Perfectly logical other celebrities have shown up holding Storksak diaper bags, offering Kate Winslet, Liv Tyler and Heidi Klum. Joley Fisher, Natasha Henstridge, and Denise Richards have also become seen carrying engineer quality diaper dust bags so you be aware of this is going to catch on that can even greater approaches later on. Perhaps the most famous Storksak diaper cases endorser is Jennifer aniston who carries the best bags around when she is having a casual stroll, plus prefers the Storksak Emily line. http://mikejordan0101.hatenablog.com/entry/2013/04/03/120841 http://mikejordan0101.livejournal.com/667.html http://mikejordan0101.tumblr.com/post/46995540324/millet-loved-her-two-daughters http://mikejordan0101.skyrock.com/3153522228-large-RURU-taking.html http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_c2daffeb0101dr7g.html

This will not work for any Idevice after the second gen iPhone but for those that want to jailbreak a ios 6.0 - 6.1.2 Idevice you can use evasi0n by the evaders. It's is really simple and it is UNTETHERED which means that if the battery dies you won't have to reboot with evasi0n Hope it helps :)

Jailbreak, allows you to download and install unlimited free applications through cydia instead of using itunes, you can changue the initial screen on your iphone, wallpapers, anything you want to do. Jailbreak does not mean unlocked so you only can use your phone with your actual carrier, once the phone is jailbroken it can be unlocked to use it with any carrier.

hey all i am REALLY confused and need some help here. I have purchased a brand new still sealed in the box iPhone 2G and need to unlock it for Tmobile. But ALL the unlocks I have found that work with the newer firmware (blackra1n, redsn0w) require me to update to 3.1.2 before running the jailbreak. How is it possible for me to update to 3.1.2 when I can't even activate my phone, because I am not going on AT&T! I can't find the answer to this anywhere, please help!!!! Can i just take my iPhone 2G out of its original box and use blackra1n right away? Do I start blackrain with my tmobile SIM in, or no SIM?

after reading the comments a couple of times, blackra1n rc3 worked on my iphone 3g 3.1.2 version. with the help of this forum and this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8UYSfPEKnQ. What i did: started itunes, plugged the mobile in. closed itunes and stopped the itunes drivers in device manager. Moved blackra1n.exe to the c root. executed this file. then did the thing that the guy did in the above youtube link. And it was jailbreaked in a minute or so! After that there was no gps, i fixed it with a network reset. got everything working! thanks everybody for the help and posting!!

hey, to answer your question.. try plugging the ipod/iphone into your computer then go to blackra1n.com and run the file for windows (or mac if u have an apple computer) hit run and then "make it ra1n" again. once that happens the jailbreak screen should pop up.. wait about 30 seconds and then your device should be at the lockscreen. then go 2 the blackra1n app and get CYDIA!! do not get ROCK.. this time cydia should be there and also make sure you have a wifi connection...if it doesnt work then "make it ra1n" again. i hope i answered your question :)

yes restore it. then go to itunes and resync all your stuff back to your phone. after that, make it rain again. when you try to get cydia it says you mudt reboot after the download, do it. if it doesnt let u in the phone, make it rain again..

I have a jail broken and unlocked iPhone 3GS with software version 3.0.1 (7A 400) and baseband software 04.2 6.08. I wish to update to the latest software version 3.2.1. My question is what is the best way to do this? The Dev Team suggests you keep the same modem firmware when upgrading to the latest software. From their blog:- "Those of you who are already unlocked at 3.1.2 because you kept your 04.26 baseband now have an extra cushion of comfort, and more choices: ultrasn0w, purplesn0w, and now blacksn0w (and of course the original yellowsn0w too if you’re still back at FW 2.x). Whether or not you choose to update your baseband solely to use the new unlock is a personal choice, but so far there are no advantages to doing so (and remember you can’t come back to 04.26 after you’ve gone to 05.11)." Could somebody please let me know how to do this on an already unlocked phone and keep the 04.26 baseband? Alternatevly if I just use Black ra1n do I "restore" and then "upgrade" or just "upgrrade" from within iTunes? I am getting confused by all different colours of snow/rain!! Is there a table showing what to use where? I have a Canadian phone but am currently I am in Mexico using a Telcel sim card and need to be able to switch between the countries. Thanks

you need to carefully read the instruction step by step.. here what you can do to get your phone jailbreak and unlock.. connect your iphone with itune.. hold shift key and use your mouse het restore button on the itune look for firmware for your iphone. then let ti restore. once it completed. use blackra1n to jailbreak.. you will see blackra1n icon on your phone. open blackrain on your iphone.. and install cydia.. and sn0w... once install complete will take from 1 to 5 min. for the phone able to pickup your carrier signal.. incase if not. restart your iphone willl work after than...

I found out that the GPS problem was caused only by balckra1n jailbreak. I restored my iPhone and GPS was working fine, but right after the jailbreak it wasn't working anymore. Only thing that helped me with non-working GPS was complete restore with PwnageTool. Here is link to Windows jailbreak: http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-and-unlock-iphone-3.1.2-firmware-on-windows-anu759/ And MacOS jailbreak: http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-iphone-3.1.2-firmware-with-pwnagetool-3.1.4-qwo969/

This is still a tethered jailbreak. Do not turn off or let your battery die people or else you will have to reconnect it to your computer and run blackra1n again to unlock your phone. Other than that, it works great!

It's me again. I found 2 fixes. After several re-try and restart it finally managed to re-activae my WIFI: Broken Wi-Fi Fix #1: There is an easy fix for all of this. All you have to do is to go to Settings>General>Reset> and hit Reset Network Settings. After resetting the network settings. Then reboot your phone and you should be fine. Push Notifications Fix #2: Launch the cydia and add the following repo “ http://cydia.iphoneil.net/ ” then search for “ pushfix “ and install this patch. By doing this your push notification bug caused by blackra1n will be patched.

My issues with T mobile - T zone plan 1) bought Iphone 3g factory reset from other seller..basband 5.11.7, and iphone os version 3.1 2) Use blcakra1n to jailbreak and unlock..everything went smoot with windows vista.. 3) Try Tmobile simcard. use apc.tombile.com as APN and email, wifi and internet work perfect. 5) When I connect this on my "Imac"- It asked if I want to restore with "ipod touch" back up. 6) I select yes..restore with pics, notes,preference went smoot. but none of my apps was there.. 7) I make sure that that phone has correct APN settings..,phone is still unlocked, incoming/outgoing call from t mobile work fine... BUT internet, email DO NOT WORK... Error "could not activate Cellular data network .. you are not subscribed to a cellular data network".. I try resetting netowork settings multiple time... Still not working.. Help Appreciated in advance ---I am thinking to "mast rest to factory resseting" and try Blackra1n again... Would that work...?

actualy what im doing is im really going to pay the 150 tomorrow for deposit to at&t but they are going to send me a Samsung Magnet Quick for free so they are so crazy. once i get the phone with the sim card, i will call them and tell them i have an iphone and i want to add the data service, so i will activate the iphone and finally i will be able to turn the iphone on, then i can unlock it and jailbreak so i can use it with tmobile, after that i will use all the minutes from att for one entire month then i will sell the free phone i got from them in 150 or 100, which actually is 199 and of course i will not pay any bill they send me in the future, so they want to f@ck with me ok, bring it on. i did think about this and it is a nice plan, some guy call john is going to call me tomorrow at 10:30 to make the deal, hoo and im getting free overnight shipping. so think about it my friend. you could do the same to them, they only want to get money from us, but that's not gonna happen with me. i do really hope for a solution soon for this issue.

Dariel, I had a similar situation (and I'm not with AT&T either). I don't really know what to do either, but what I do know is that it isn't permanent. There is either a solution right now, or there will be in a matter of weeks or days. All we need to do is wait for it and keep asking around. Someone would be able to help for sure. Wait before you pay any money to T-Mobile or anyone, it won't hurt waiting a couple more days instead of paying $150 for nothing! If I find a way to fix my phone, I'll definitely post the solution here, no doubt! Good luck with yours too.

Dariel, That sounds like you have a plan. But hey, last night I tried it and blackra1n worked totally! It was as smooth as the tutorial showed. I'm serious, all I did different was turn off "iTunesHelper", and it worked like a charm. I realized that the key is to keep trying in different ways and it'll work for sure. My WiFi worked fine, but I had Push and YouTube issues, but that was fixed within 2 mins through Cydia. So mine's good to go, I'm using it right now. But good luck with ur plan bud, hope it works out for u.

I'm using an iPhone 3G (OS 2.2, BB 2.28), JAILBROKEN & unlocked before. I accidentally updated to 3.1.2 using iTunes (not a custom ipsw). Now my phone is in recovery mode and can only be used to make emergency calls. I've tried using blackra1n, but the iphone just stays on the same recovery screen (and I don't see GeoHot's picture). btw, I'm a windows user. Please help!!

I think u should restore your iphone to clean 3.1.2 firmware using itunes. click shift + restore button, then choose the 3.1.2firmware file to restore.(google to find the 3.1.2firmware dl). Then rerun blackrain n blacksnow again. shld work i guess. :)

Thanks Dimebolt. I tried reinstalling 3.1.2 again through iTunes (just last night). And I tried to run blackra1n, but it doesn't do anything whatsoever. The iPhone stays on recover mode, and blackra1n stays as it is too. Should I wait longer perhaps? (I waited for a few minutes, no doubt). Also, should I (at any point) close iTunes, or can I leave it open? Thanks again.

Yes, once you jailbreak using blackra1n, you'll have an icon on your iPhone that says "blackra1n". Open that (let your phone connect to WiFi) and load Cydia and Sn0w. Then it'll automatically Unlock your phone (meaning you can use it with ANY phone carrier). Hope this helps.

the best thing is to read through peoples comments on here starting at the bottom!!! but if its too hard, start blackrain, wait for make it rain to appear, then turn iphone off, turn it back on while holding the home button, keep holding til the process kis finished. this is the only way older iphones will jailbreak and you will notice after turning it on while holding home, that geo;s face appears in about 5seconds. BUT this does NOT unlock it only jailbreaks! you need to use blacksn0w

For those with a 3G getting a black screen stuck on when it’s supposed to reboot to Geoff’s pic. I found that leaving itunes open, and killing off “ituneshelper.exe” in the task manager made mine go through first try, as it’s supposed to. Also copied/ran it in the local disk, as admin, but w/o itunes open it wouldn’t go AT ALL past the black screen, regardless of how I ran it, or how many times, would just sit there for a long time on bs, and eventually just turn off.

I am disappointed. I have a iPhone 3GS and managed to jailbreak it however Geo advised you would only need to reboot the touch should it run out of battery every time. He failed to mention this happens with the iPhone too. I tested it a few times and have jailbroken it about 3 times (all successful) each time I powered it down (by holding down the power button and sliding the red slider across to switch the power off to also a hard reboot) however when I go to power it back up. The apple appears but the next thing to come up is the picture of the USB and telling you to connect it to iTunes. What a pain in the ass this is! What if I'm not near my computer, I would be without a phone altogether till I got to a computer of some sort. Not happy at all. Thought this would of been tested atleast before rolling it out.

It seems there is a new lot of 3GS that cannot be Jailbroken with BlackRa1n. After the process is complete, the iPhone does NOT reboot and stays on a black screen. You are forced to restore it with iTunes. I googled this and it seems quite a few people started to have this issue as of the last week.

Please help me out here, I have an iPhone 3GS 3.1.2, locked. I tried jailbreaking using Blackra1n, it said done, wait for reboot, and after the iPhone reboots nothing happens, I’m back to where I started with the iTunes&USB cable logo and emergency call. I tried using Windows 7 & Windows Vista. I killed iTunes, iTunes helper and mdnsresponder, of-course killing AppleMobileDevice would prevent Blackra1n from detecting the iphone so I never kill it. Basically; I did every step perfectly, but nothing happens after the phone reboots, I’m just back to where I started with the itunes&usb logo along with emergency call PLEASE HELP ! regards, Hamza

This drove me up the wall. I am a iPhone 3G user, one that had the "running..." issue. Here is what I did. You can turn on some Reggae if you would like, it may have helped... Stage One: + Connected my iPhone 3G to "TheGreenMachine" (Dell Windows XP Pro SP3). + Open iTunes and verify that your device is recognized. Then Close iTunes. + Stop the ipodservice.exe, itunes.exe services. Tip: (Alt+Ctrl+Delete to access the taskmgr.exe) + Run blackra1n.exe from C:\. Then Stage 2: Tip: You may need to try this several times, don't give up! + Click on "make it ra1n" + As soon as the screen displays the Apple logo, Press and hold the HOME and POWER buttons. The home button the the primary iPhone button, the power is located on the top right. Tip: When holding HOME & POWER, keep holding firmly to ensure your not pressing lightly. If your fingers are hurting print holding - you have crossed the line! Take a break and go scream in a corner. + When the Apple logo disappears, immediately let go of the Power button, but keep holding down the home button firmly. +Once you see the USB and iTunes screen, wait 3 seconds then release the HOME button. + Wait 3 more seconds and press and hold the HOME button for 3 more seconds. 3 Days of attempting a long.... long list of suggested fixes, this did it for me. After releasing the Home button I received Geo's splash screen. Leave your phone alone until it reboots. Once it reboots, check your second icon page for the blackra1n icon. If it's not there, try... try again. If you get stuck on the USB & iTunes icon screen and can't seem to get back into normal mode, simply press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons until the device powers off. Power it back on by only pressing the Power button. This will take the iPhone out of recovery mode and boot it into normal mode. There are a lot of suggested fixes floating around. This is the only thing that worked for me and many others. For some reason it's as if the iPhone needs user input to allow access for Geo's files to boot. But there is a small window to get it going. I believe this small window is between the start of the USB and iTunes screen appearance, and your computers following USB identification beep, which for me is around 10 seconds. Good luck & keep trying!

FOR ALL YOU 3G iPhone USERS, who keeps getting stuck at RUNNING mode without GEO's face.. This REALLY WORKS: Turn off three things: MDSNreposnder. Ituneshelper, and iPodservices. DO NOT END PROCESS FOR APPLEMOBILEDEVICESERVICE.EXE. Download and save blackra1n on C:/ drive, while your phone is hooked up. THEN, go to your settings and reset your NETWORK settings. Once the phone is back up, right click on Blackra1in, and run as ADMIN. Hit "MAKE IT RAIN" Then your phone will restart.. ONCE the APPLE LOGO APPEARS, HOLD DOWN the HOME BUTTON ONLY. THEN, when your "DFU mode" loge appears (itunes logo with usb cord), RELEASE THE HOME BUTTON ASAP, THEN PRESS IT AGAIN IMMEDIATELY. Wait about 2 seconds, and that logo will appear with Geo's face. Wait about 2 minutes, and you are done! Hope this helps to all stuck people.

Had the issue - Blackra1n stuck at "running" and never completed. Here's what worked for me 1. Clean install of Windows XP SP3 - new install - only antivirus added (Avast free) 2. Fresh install of iTunes (latest - 9.1.8) 3. Download Blackra1n.exe, ans save to C:\ (root of system/boot volume) 4. Right click Blackra1n.exe and choose "Run as..." 5. Choose Administrator, with a password I have been trying to get this to work for 2 days on a MAC, Win XP SP3 (old install), Win 2008, Win 7 - none would work.

It kept getting stuck on the "Running" screen over and over, no matter what I tried (closing all itunes, ipod processes, etc), so I googled the issue and found this tutorial: http://cydiaupdates.wordpress.com/2009/10/11/blackra1n-stuck-at-the-running-screen-heres-the-fix/ The only difference I found was that blackra1n.exe needs to be in the C:/ directory (it was on my desktop). Once I had moved it, jailbreaking was a SUCCESS!!! Thanks everyone for all your input.

I was able to jail break my iphone 3G with 3.12 (baseband 5.11.07) last night after several attempts. What I did was to the following (Windows XP) 1. Kill the 3 services Iphonehelper, ipodservice and mDNS 2.Move your blackra1n to c"\ 3.Connect your iphone to your computer, once iphone boots up power off your iPhone 4.Launch blackra1n, click on make it ra1n, you wiill get a message "waiting for iphone" 5. Press the power and home button at the same time, wait for iphone to boot up, continue to press both (power and home) buttons until you see GeoHot face on your iphone 6.blackra1n will take less than 10 seconds to complete and your iphone will be jail broken. I did try to unlock my phone using ultrasn0w, I was successful, but when I put my SIM Card, I get No service (both on ATT and TMOBILE) sim. Any suggestions?

The solution seems for 3g users you must be in dfu mode not recovery mode. These steps worked for me. Turned off Iphone. run blackra1n from the c drive. click make it rain. hold the home and power buttons , do not release when you see the apple logo, keep holding both buttons until the phone turns off and comes back on for the second time. then when you see the apple logo release the power button and hold the home button until you see the geohot screen , should take no more then 5 seconds after you see the apple logo for the second time.

Hi everyone!!! I see every one is having issues with BlackRa1n on the Iphone 3G and same goes for me, it gets stuck on restore mode and have tried it 10 times. Anyhow this is not my question, I just got an Iphone 3G[S] and I was able to use the BlackRa1n with no problems what so ever. I was able to install Cydia and Winterboard and all those goodies from Cydia. Now the question is I have ATT but only have the 2G internet package (edge) which I am able to use with the iphone 2G and 3G, but when I try connecting on Safari via Edge on the 3GS it tells me that I don't have the internet package for it and it does not let me connect. Is there a program that bypasses this and still be able to connect via Edge on the Iphone 3Gs or I am just stuck with updating my package?. Thank you guys and Thank you GeoHot for this jailbraking program you have provided us with. jfgonzalez2324@gmail.com

If all that still didn't work. make sure all the above are not running; then manually double-click applesyncUIHandler.exe (the phone has to be ON "Working" and connected) and run blackra1n again... the appleSyncUIHandler.exe is in Programfiles\common files\Apple\Mobile device Support\bin

I successfully jailbroke my 3GS with Blackra1n (with firmware 3.1.2 - you're my hero GeoHot). Problem however is I tried unlocking using using Ultrasn0w to make it work with T-mobile, but when I pop in my sim, the phone just goes in "searching" mode and eventually comes up as "no service". I've disabled "3G", and even tried unlocking using Purplesn0w but have been unsuccessful. Did I miss anything? Can someone help?

It does say at the top of the tutorial, that if you update to 3.1.2 this updates your baseband thus leaving your ihpone unlcokable (for now anyway). so at least your jailbroken but sit it out for an unlock.lol lol

posted 5 years ago
as this is copied from the top of THIS TUTORIAL: "WARNING: Even though the GeoHot jailbreak supports 3.1.2 do not update if you are on iPhone OS 3.0.1 or 3.0. You will lose your unlock. Use PwnageTool to safely update to 3.1 without performing a baseband update. If you really must have 3.1.2 then wait for the next version of PwnageTool. If you have already updated to 3.1 or 3.1.2 without using PwnageTool then you've lost the ability to unlock for the time being. You can now use BlackRa1n to at least regain your jailbreak :)" ooops

i would recommend u to use fuzzyband and see if ur phone bootloader version is 5.8 which is only less than 10% of iphones but if u r those lucky ones then install fuzzyband from cydia and downgrade modem firmware and unlock it.. good luck..

Here is how I got it to work - after having all the problems the people above had.... #1 - set iphone to airplane mode....not sure if this does anything, but some others said to do it. #2 - plug in iphone and set itunes to not autosync when iphone is connected....I think this is the key. But I also had #1 done at the same time, so who knows. #3 - moved EXE to the root of c: #4 - killed all itunes related tasks except for applemobiledevicehelper.exe (kill itunes, ituneshelper, ipodservice, mdnsresponder) #4 - ran EXE as admin.

My experience with this jailbreak was that it would not run on my Vista x64 but was flawless on my WinXP notebook. It does work and Cydia works fine. But bluetooth no longer works on my 3GS. It does before jailbreaking and did after I flashed it back to 3.1.2 with itunes. Anyone else found this happen to them? This is a show stopper for me and I will wait for the Dev team I think.

@everyone follow the steps on my site EXACTLY and you will be good to go, but you have to do the exact button hold/release sequence/timing as this IS KEY. Here is the site: http://ping.fm/5knkP Mine didn’t work and was doing the same as you guys until I did the exact sequence of holding both buttons, then releasing the powerbutton when the apple logo appeared while still holding the home button, then releasing the home button after the GeoHot background appears. If you do the exact steps, in order listed above, you should have no problem.

I have tried and failed over 10 times using an new iPod Touch 8GB with 3.1.2. I have tried from both a Windows 7 and a XP SP3 computer and every time it gets stuck at the reboot point. I do see the blackra1n picture and the phone starts to reboot and the JB app says "waiting for reboot". After that however nothing ever happens. I've left it for 10 mins and it never ever reboots. I've tried holding down power and home to restart but nothing. I've then restored back to 3.1.2 and tried all the suggestions for ending ipod related services and processes in task manager. I have also tried unplugging myself from the internet, ending my firewall and AV software, but still the same problem exists. Please can someone offer any advice or assistance?

All- Confirm your 3.1.2 phone/pod is ON, and restored and all those apple goodies. Start by killing itunes processes, (((Itunes.exe, ituneshelper.exe, and ipodservice.exe))) from the task manager. (right-click on task-bar- > task manager-> processes->(sort by name)-> click on itunes.exe then end process, same for other 2) Then disable the firewall and antiviruses for a few minutes. (might effect some and not some). again make sure the phone is Powered On, and working and PLUGGED IN. Now luanch blackra1n, and make it ra1n. If itunes comes up when u enter recovery-mode, then the processes are still running... Kill them. then again

This happened to me too, but here's how to fix it: Once you hit "let it rain", plug your iPhone into your computer with the USB cord. The Apple logo will pop up on the phone for a minute or so, and then the phone will reboot. As the phone reboots (as soon as the screen goes black) hold down the Home button. Keep holding it down until you see a picture of Geohot (looks like Frodo Baggins), then let go. Good luck.

Kill (end task) iTunesHelper, iPodService and mDNRSResponder 5. Do not kill AppleMobileDevice 6. Connect iPhone 7. Open BlackRa1n) 4.

Sooo Holy sheaat!! My first jailbreak!!! Finally!! I feel like a fukin jailbreak expert now after all the hours of research to finally find the perfect jailbreak recipe!!! So here it is,,, JOsh got it right but I stumbled upon another step and wooopppeeee it worked!!! I'm running vista ultimate 64 bit, ESET smart security (disabled all antivirus, firewall and even anti spam) new iphone 3gs that had 3.11 5.11.07 out of the box, Upgraded to 3.12 current att service. Latest version of itunes. Ok, JOshs' method: **disable all anti virus, firewall and even anti spam** (Not sure if that helped, but part of my solution so maybe a key?) 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.

3G updated to 3.1.2. Had the same problem over an over - stuck at the USB/Restore screen on the phone and the GeoHot pic never loads. Tried it on Vista and XP, got the same result. Went back to Vista, ran blackra1n as Administrator and it finally worked. Here's what I did to get it to work. - iTunes closed, iphone disconnected - stopped ituneshelper in task mgr - opened iTunes - connected iphone - eject the phone in itunes (leave itunes open) - right-click blackra1n.exe, run as Administrator This worked for me, and hopefully will work for some of you who are having the same problem.

I tried everything everyone suggested, tried it on Vista didnt work tried it 8 times, then i tried it on XP and disabled AV and iTuneshelper,iPodService,mDNSresponder - that didn't work, then i went back to the Vista and disabled the AV and downloaded a fresh copy of Blackrain and it loaded the first time so all i can suggest is to keep trying it on all windows platforms as there appears to be few bugs in Geohot's software Hopefully he will read all this and make a few adjustments to his software where its more compatible and bug free but i was one of the biggest sceptics and I managed to get it to work after trying 8-10 times.

Yes, simply the jailbreak formats your ipod / iphone, and you'll have to re sync all your apps. Jailbreak is no dangerous. You can restore the original software from itunes anytime (will format again).

It will and does work on with Vista. It took several attempts but in the end it worked. Be sure you have your antivirus program disabled, and also make sure that iTunes is closed. It was not necessary to close all of the other iTunes background programs. If you get stuck at a blank screen, restart iphone/ipod and try running Blackra1n again. It also helped to have upgraded OS to 3.1.2. Good luck.

The jailbreak instructions as written do not work. My phone keeps getting stuck and it will not reboot. I have to do a manual reboot by pressing power and home for 15 seconds. After restart, no black rain icon. I tried shutting down all virus and firewall protection but that did not help. I will wait till you get better instructions. I have the correct phone and software 3G with latest version of I Phone. At this time I would not install this jailbreak until better instructions are given. It is very scary when your phone freezes up and computer is saying that USB device has malfunctioned. Take my advice and wait until this jailbreak has been modified to make it easier.

I am one of the lucky few who managed to downgrade my 3GS 3.1 back to 3.0 (I know baseband is permanently upgraded but I'm with a major carrier). My question is, do you think this 3.1 update is worth it? I have heard a lot of people lost tethering when upgrading to 3.1. Yet the 3.1 update supposedly gives some improved performance and stability (don't care much about bluetooth and video editing). So is it worth upgrading for these supposed benefits and losing tethering? I'm not even sure you lose tethering. Any of you blackra1n users tethering yet?

He's showing an error in blackra1n log. I have the same under Seven. Seems that geohot's tool can't send the picture we can see on the explanation after rebooting the phone. And after that, the log gives the same error on mostly all commands sent by blackra1n to the device... here's the error while trying to send the picture: INFO: send command started INFO: file opened ioctl: 0 INFO: command geohot sent ERROR: usb open failed while sending payload ERROR: usb open failed while sending payload send picture: -1

It will not work on ur phone..as u have updated ur phone using pwnage tool..and blackra1n works only on officially upgraded phones i.e the phone upgraded via itunes...so u can't use blackra1n..stick with pwnage tool..or u might will lose ur unlock for the time being..

You must read carefully. Black rain does not hacktivate.

I have a factory unlocked iPhone 3G on 3.1.2. Tried to jailbreak using Win Xp SP3 on Macbook native mode. I don't see the GEOHot piture and phone doesn't reboot, although BlackRa1n app says that jailbreak is done and wait for reboot. After waiting for few minutes, I reset the phone while holding home and power buttons. Once it completes the reboot, there is no BlackRa1n icon on springboard.

Ok, then go ahead and plug it into iTunes and restore/update your iPhone to the new firmware. It will bring the phone back up, then you'll be able to jailbrake it.

Try this, worked for iPhone 3G 16GB 3.1.2 using Windows 7: 1) Open blackra1n.exe 2) Connect iPhone 3) Close iTunes, ctrl-alt-delete and close iTunes Helper (not sure if it makes a difference but this was my config when it worked) 4) Slide to Unlock iPhone (get to Home Screen)**I think this is what did it** 5) make it rain

You will have to upgrade to the new 3.1.2 firmware, you'll then be able to jailbrake it without any issue

What if you've already use Pwnage tool to Jailbreak and you want to try this new method? Do you have to update to an official firmware and then run this tool? Or will this tool grab the latest firmware from iTunes, patch and update all at once?

So I have an iTouch 8gb 2G/3G, unsure which version I have, with firmware 3.1.2. I tried using blackra1n, i did some of tips ppl offered, start blackra1n then plug in itunes etc etc. So after blackra1n says it's done and my itouch is rebooting, my itouch turns off and stays off and will not turn on even if i try DFU mode. And itunes keep popping up the error that says "Your itouch has been detected in DFU mode and has to be restored". And it keeps popping up everytime i click okay. Any tips or helps on what im doing wrong?

Yes..you need to update via itunes..then u can use blackra1n for jailbreak only..no unlock..so if ur phone factory unlocked..go ahead..as I did the same..downloading cydia now :-)..
