wow that was easy... one click and under 30 seconds to jailbreak it. icy works fine but Cydia keeps saying "Reorganizing, will close when done" then when i open it again, same thing... tried to reboot but nothing.

Is this for 3.1 firmware?? Will it work on windows?
It will work on 3.1, 3.1.1, 3.1.2... why not just upgrade to 3.1.2 now and then jailbreak? It works.... do it..

It's for Windows...

It's very complicated... you download from blackra1n.com, and click make it rain, wait 40 seconds and its done.

If I don't plan on unlocking, can I update via iTunes and then make it rain?

Or should I just do the dev team baseband thingy? I don't have a mac so how?

So this is JB only... NOT unlock. Is their still no way for Windows users to unlock 3.1, 3.1.2 yet.

Can anyone please clarify
Many Thanx :eek:

Be careful if you want to unlock
Warning 3g and 3gs unlockers, do not upgrade to 3.1.2 using iTunes if you want to keep your unlock. Baseband cannot be downgraded. Check out the dev team's offerings.

BalckRain is not an unlocker, only a JailBreak. You should wait if you want to Jailbreak and Unlock. They are 2 different things completly.

I think I'll use this on my iPod touch to muck about first, and if I think it's worth the hassle of messing with my 3GS for then I will. Ain't had a jailbroken device for a long time, and I'm starting to miss the customisation and everything.

Had the same issue with it crashing on a Windows 7 standalone machine. Took it over to a Vista machine and it worked fine.

So apparently, this won't jailbreak a 3G iPhone which has been upgraded to 3.1.2.:( I've tried many times and it just puts the iPhone in recovery mode and does nothing.
This will work for 3.1.2 iPhone 3g however the 3g is the most flakey of the family that he released. Just keep trying different things / repeating what you are doing and it will eventually work.

If you wish to unlock, please realized this is NOT providing you with the ability to unlock. That being said, I am not sure any more if a unlock will EVER be released again...

Sorry for the dumbness... But so you have to run through iTunes? Does it need to be in recovery mode? Alls I want is the jailbreak so does this mean I won't lose signal etc etc? I'm in work at the moment so havnt done anythin yet. Thanks oh and I have a 3gs on 3.1 unbroken.

Here's a tutorial: http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-iphone-3.1.2-firmware-with-blackra1n-zni327/ :)

You shouldn't have network problems if you just jailbreak and don't mess with the baseband (unlock), no.

Just done this on my first gen iPod touch, worked great! Backgrounder is what I need in my life, especially on my powerhouse 3GS!

Gonna take the plunge on the iPhone now! :D
