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 !!!
Jailbroken the 1st time w/ Blackra1n.....
Yes... Blackra1n worked for me the first time on my iPhone 3G.
THANKS geohot for the fastest jailbreak to date and Thank You Hackint0sh for ALL the Great information you provide.
