    Default In China with a really, now, messed up iPhone

    Hi All-

    I'm in a delicate situation. I was using my iphone unlocked via blackrain/snow in China. It worked great until I turned the device off.

    Now that the device is off it is frozen at the apple screen. I KNOW many people have had this problem before, I have done the search. However my situation is a little different because my HOME key doesn't work well. Before the iphone was frozen I'd have to mash, push, hold the home key just to get it to work. What I'm saying is the home key hardly works.

    I believe the home key is the problem and it isn't allowing me to go into restore/DFU mode. My question is, is there any software out there that will put it into those modes automatically so that I can restore? Do you think there are other more serious issues with my phone that I don't know about? Any other suggestions would be welcomed!

    Any help would be great as my only way of communicating with people, outside of the internet, is my phone.......Thank you very much!

    -ZJB

    Run blackra1n again.
    Your phone requires a tethered jailbreak ... meaning every time the device is powered off or rebooted, you need to connect phone to computer and run blackra1n again

    Hey, thanks for the suggestion!

    I actually restored my phone to 3.1.2, I downloaded Blackra1n RC3, and I've successfully placed Blackra1n on my home screen.

    The next problem is everytime I run blackra1n in hopes of using blacksnow. EVERY time I run blackra1n I get the "Please check internet connection" message. My buddy has tried his blackra1n on his iphone and he gets the three options. I've reset all network settings, restored and re-ran blackra1n, and done everything I can think of. However, every single time I get the internet connection error.

    Any help would be great. I'm in China without a mobile device!

    You have the no wifi problem. This occurs with approx 10-20% of users who used blacksn0w at least once to unlock. For users who have never used blacksn0w (or even never jailbroken) this wifi problem occurs for less than 2% of users running baseband 05.11.07 (this baseband is upgraded when you restore with OS 3.1.2 or 3.1).

    It is an apple bug, made much worse by using blacksn0w. Once you get it, there is no permanent solution yet.

    So, I can't do anything to fix it? I'm stuck without using my iPhone in China?

    Is that error message a sign that my wifi for blackra1n isn't working? My wifi for other apps works just fine......very frustrating.

    Thanks for your help/insights

    Ok your wifi for other apps works

    I eat my words you don't have the wifi problem.

    Your problem might be that the blacksn0w download is blocked by the great firewall of china. You can get blacksn0w from cydia also. There was also an old thread about using an anonymous proxy to get to the hosted version of blackra1n.

    I downloaded Blackra1n through utorrent, do you think there's a chance that the blackra1n I downloaded wasn't the most recent version?

    It said it was RC3? Can you email the most recent one to me? I believe it's a really small file.

    I'm quite confident that it's the most recent version, if that's the case, what other trouble shooting could I do? Blackra1n is as simple as they come.

    Blackra1n does NOT include blacksn0w, your iPhone has to download blacksn0w from blackra1n.com once you are jailbroken and run the blackra1n icon. This allows the blackra1n exe to be tiny and for updates to be made to blacksn0w if bugs are found. You can also install blacksn0w from cydia.

    The only straightforward way to check if blackra1n is valid is to check the md5 hash

    Code:
    7AD0A6A31F0DC6360D7080B0C7BA1717  blackra1n.exe
    That is the hash of the blackra1n.exe downloaded today from blackra1n.com it is 608256 bytes in size.

    Hey Olethros-

    Thanks for your help. I understand the basic structure of how blackra1n works. I've successfully used blackra1n to get blacksnow prior to my trip to China.

    Once in China something happened to my phone when I powered off. I now can NOT get blackra1n (which is on my phone) to connect to the servers in order to download blacksnow.

    I KNOW that the server isn't blocked because my friend has been sitting right next to me, on the same network, launched blackra1n on his iphone, and been able to see the three options. He has a 3gs but is also on 3.1.2 fw.

    Right now my problem is that I can't see those three options via blackra1n. I'm not sure when I restored to 3.1.2 last week if that messed something up, do you know?

    Any other tips? Maybe, if you have time, we could talk via skype/gchat/AIM, anyhting you want - just trying to get this up and working
