Hello fellow bootloopers,
i just joined this forum cuz im also stuck in this bootloop for a full month now.
I read every thread on the world wide web about the bootloop and none was any useful.
iphone 3gs 32 gb 3.1.2 new bootroom (nothin saved on sauriks server)
Im really frustrated, especially since an 3.1.3 unlock exists but wont be released. I mean ok ill get why its not released....but at least GeoHot could look into that problem and update his blackra1n. Or at the very least he could warn people on his webpage that this bug exists!!
Anyway iŽll keep on letting it ra1n all day long. But at some point in this near furture ill update to 3.1.3 and just use it as an ipod touch.
Who knows maybe someone comes up with a more sophisticated solution.....
hang in there...
The Blackra1n I downloaded is not from ih8sn0w. Anyhow, this modified one seems to work. I notice that both iTune and Blackra1n needs to be running to get it going. iPhone needs to go into recovery mode by holding the Home button, then plug in to the USB. Blackra1n (modified for iTune 9) will recognize and the Geohot screen will show up on the phone.
Right now I don't have any luck after the phone restart, it still seems to go back to the logo loop.
We can't just support any "modified" version of blackra1n that you happen to find on the net. Blackra1n has a documented bug/incompatibility with iTunes 9.1 - this is lazy programming by geohot - he won't issue an update to fix this either.

Keep on trying
still looping :\
With my Iphone, the first bootloop occured after booting with no wifi, i chose to reset network settings (after reading about it in the web) and then reboot and got stuck in the loop. After the first night of leaving it in the loop i was able to get out of it with wifi!
unfortunately after about 2 weeks that everything was fine, my phone has sunddenly rebooted by itself, this happened a couple of times after which i had no wifi, a couple of reboots + blackrain each time wifi was fine.
untill a few days ago, multiple reboots + blackrain did not help and i booted with no wifi each time.
At that point I have decided to try the method mentioned here - removing the blacksn0w.dylib and copyin the original com.apple.CommCenter.plist,
I used this one i found in another forum:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
After doing this my phone was back in the loop :(
Left it in the last couple of nights, after tens or hundred windows of blackrain, eventually the loop stops, i dont know if it's because the windows stops recognizing the usb device or because the blackrain window seems to be non responsive. anyway the phone is stuck in recovery mode :\
any help would be greatly appreciated!
I am in the same position. Blackra1n has gone through the loop over a hundred times in the last 36 hours... I am ready to just throw in the towel and upgrade to 3.1.3, even though the modem isn't unlockable.
If there is any hope that anybody has seen a way to drop the modem back, install custom firmware, restore to 3.1.2, or to unlock the 5.12.xx modem, please post! I'm ready to just sell it and move on... I just loved my iPhone!!
32GB 3GS with NEW bootrom (Used for 5 months with no problems)
Restoring to 3.1.3 (even with SHSH for 3.1.2) is not worth it for you.

There is no way to unlock or downgrade 05.12.01 modem on 3GS
Spirit only works on legitimately activated iPhones.
12532658952622 thanks, my Iphone now working and back to life again but I have this windows:
We apologize for inconvenience but SpringBoardhas just crashed.
MobileSubstate /did not/ cause this problem: it has protected you from it.
your device is now running in safe mode. All extensions that support this safety system are disabled.
Reboot (or restart springBoard) to retuen to the normal mode. To return to this dialog touch the status bar.
i am so worry about to face same problem i faced, so what i have to do ?
will i face the same problem when i want to restart my Iphone ?
please send me your address in private, I insist on sending small gift for you.
thanks in advance
This is a different problem. Try the restart option in that dialog. If that does not help try and find out what mobile substrate addons you have installed. If you have SBSettings installed it has an option for this.
