    :apple::apple::apple:It would be great if we could a get a forum going just discussing the various aspects of the latest jailbreak for the 3.1.2 firmware, aslo known as blackra1n:

    If you have used blackra1n, you know that it is the easiest jailbreak to date without question. However, its new and it definitely has its kinks...

    So far, blackra1n hasn't caused me any real problems except the occasional wifi glich. I'm working with several iPhones here. Often times after running blackra1n everything works fine. However, other times after the jailbreak I have problems identifying wifi networks. This problem is fairly simple to fix:

    Go to Settings - General - Reset - Reset Network Settings

    Then hold the pwr and home buttons for three seconds to reset again after reboot. This will usually fix the problem identifying wifi networks. Youtube also seems to be a bit of an issue. The above method doesn't always work for youtube and I still haven't found what consistently does.

    After running blackra1n, there should be a black raindrop logo on the second page of your applications labeled blackra1n. From here you can install sn0w, the unlock installation. (The first time I ran blackra1n though, after the frodo reboot my springboard was completely black... I DIDN'T HAVE A SINGLE APP. I simply restored again and repeated the process. It worked fine.)

    Sn0w seems to be a bit finicky as well. Things to remember: go to setting - network and disable the 3G option. The T-Mobile unlock will not work for me unless I do this before the sn0w installation.

    Please add anything and everything related to blackra1n to this forum. Post any notes, thoughts, concerns, issues or experiences. :apple::apple::apple:

    I won't say it... I know someone else will but I won't.

    I have had none of the issues with BR that some have had, 3 3gs's and an iPod touch all jb without an issue.
