    Default BlackRa1n will not complete the jailbreak - it hangs.

    I was having problems with wifi (as is usually the cause every month or so) and I did the network settings reset a couple of times. It didn't work. I powered off and back on. That didn't work. I did a full reset and when I tried to run blackra1n again it would not complete the process.

    I have tried at least 5 time times, after powering off, reset, etc. It runs the first step and I get the dialogue box that says "your jail break is done" and it says waiting for reboot. It never finishes. The geohot logo stays up there FOREVER and eventually you see that little spinning/logging circular icon in the center of the screen. It just hangs.

    I need my phone unlocked so I can't just run restore because it will upgrade me to 3.1.3 (I had 3.1.2). I can't restore from a 3.1.2 file because apple has its signing bullshit.

    I tried going into DFU mode and then back to restore and that didn't help either. It always hangs and the little circular icon stops spinning. It will sit there forever unless I hold sleep and home.

    What do I do? I really need my phone back and functioning.

    Thanks.

    What OS are you running blackra1n from? Are you using the latest version of blackra1n?

    Have you tried a different USB port on your machine or a different machine entirely to do the jailbreak?

    Last but not least, do you have an SHSH on file for 3.1.2 in case you need to re-flash 3.1.2 on the device for any reason?

    I'm using windows 7. I didn't really know if I had SHSH on file but apparently I did. I used the hosts file trick for gs.apple.com and it allowed me to upgrade to a 3.1.2 firmware which i got from felixbruns.de (I hope that's a kosher source). I guess I really lucked out on that one. After reloading 3.1.2 using the hosts file trick blackra1n ran without a hitch and I'm back to normal. Even got the youtube fix which I just noticed today on blackra1n.com. I have been trying to fix youtube forever.

    I've recently upgraded to windows 7 and I'm facing the same issue (blackra1n is freezing with the little circular icon.

    Tried to restore with itunes shift+restore from a file I had and it says that i'm not eligible to restore. any way I can restore?

    What you need to do is add this line to your hosts file:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    Then try again (close itunes nad reboot first to be sure) and pray that you saved some kind of security keys with cydia before they closed the hole. If you did just adding that line and trying again should work. If it doesn't work you're fucked.

    If you don't know where your hosts file is google it for your operating system.

    Thank you for the help. Done it, but I'm afraid I didn't save to Cydia... Bad luck for me. Now wait for 3.1.3 jailbreak, right?

    What I don't understand is that until last week, even on windows 7 I was able to reboot my iphone using blackra1n. Now it doesn't work, haven't upgrade on itunes. Why is that?
