I haz success with blackra1n
this is a jailbreak for FW 3.1.x that works ONLY if you have an official SIM
it is NOT an unlock
I am on ATTUsa, I cannot use Tmobile USA
I jailbroke a 3G iPhone on FW3.1.2 and a 3GS also on FW3.1.2
first time I ran blackra1n it did not work, and my iPhone was left in Connect to iTunes mode.
I held power and home until the iPhone turned off. Powered up and ran blackra1n again. It worked the 2nd time on the 3GS. It took 3 tries on the 3G.
if this happens to you, that you end up in Connect to iTunes mode, you do NOT need to restore firmware etc, just hold power and Home at the same time until the phone turns off
if you are NOT on an official carrier, do NOT run blackra1n, it wont activate you phone
blackrain will NOT unlock your iPhone, only jailbreak
pray for the unlock
Problem with Blackra1n? Try this
Blackra1n worked perfectly the first time on 3GS
I could not get Pwnage 3.14 to work at all--tried it 5 times. Blackra1n was much faster and much more simple and I was easily able to install Cydia and Rock. Highly recommended!
Blackra1n too good to be true?
well people, it has worked for some and made some worked up and furious about their iphones/ipods ,
if your one of the lucky people that actually had a successful jailbreak congratz! and consider yourselfs pretty damn lucky!
if not, ( in my case)
hopefully we have to wait for the RC2 version or Geohotz to post a fix of somesort , because like me u have tried possibly all the solutions out there. my iphone is a 3G / 8 gb Factory unlocked and nothing seems to work , i suggest visiting this site to try all the above before actually whining here in this post [URL="http://http://cydiaupdates.wordpress.com/2009/10/13/blackra1n-not-working-for-you-stuck-on-running-or-entering-recovery-mode-the-blackra1n-checklist-get-your-idevice-jailbroken-now/"]
ive tried on a MAC with Leopard OSX and a PC running Windows 7 X64 with itunes 9.1 X64
and same thing happens i get stuck on that awful itunes logo with the usb cable
so if theres any1 that could help us .... well that would be just dandy !!!
I used blackra1n to jailbreak my ipod touch and it worked perfectly and its so easy.
I first upgraded to 3.1.2 using itunes, then started blackra1n and it was done.
this is how I did it...
1. blackra1n on desktop
2. close all apple and itunes related app thru Task Manager
3. phone on and on home screen
4. blackra1n set run in Vista SP2 mode under Compatibility (I'm running Win7 64-bit)
5. connect iphone to computer
6. Start blackra1n, and "Make it rain"
* I then got stuck in Recovery Mode on the iPhone 3G 16GB (legit update to 3.1.2 thru iTunes prior to blackra1n) and blackra1n stuck at "running..."
7. If stuck in Recovery Mode/running, reboot by holding power and home button for 10sec or until screen flash off.
8. Turn on iPhone again, retry blackra1n.
* I had to do this more than 10 times...have faith in the tutorial that states blackra1n is buggy and MAY take multiple tries...
After about 10 times, it took and geohot's face/logo comes up on iPhone's screen...follow the rest and be done.
if u havent had any luck jailbraking it, try this http://modmyi.com/forums/general/688...fix-video.html with fabio's steps before running black rain
