    We need a little more information. Which iPhone do you have? What firmware are you running?

    I downloaded the blackrain and installed in my computer before. I used it to unlock and jailbreak everything, but when I was going to run it today, it doesn't work anymore!

    That's a very... broad problem. You'll need to specify what's going wrong. If you're using the 3.1.3 firmware, you'll probably need to seek out another program. If you're on 3.1.2, it should be working. Try Blackbreeze as a fix. Worked for me. If you ARE on 3.1.3 and want to use Blackra1n, shift-restore to 3.1.2 firmware (google it) and retry it.

    yes by all means

    if yo wanna use blackbreeze that up to you, Sorry I wouldn't recomend it till Hotz says so! Blackra1n, shift-restore to 3.1.2 only works on 3G and lower. I am just thinking we have another 3.1.3 3GS here! Sorry Red Five we need more info from TS before we can offer any advice! I used to work at Radio Shack Coworker wrote don't work on everything he sent in for repair. (well duh!)

    Any Solution Yet


    I have the excact same problem: I am on os 3.1.2 with iPhone 3gs, after resetting network settings and rebooting, blackrain did not work anymore. All it does is show the Geohot image for about 3 Minutes, then reboots to recoverymode.

    I tried to restore the iPhone via iTunes to the 3.1.2 Firmware, but no matter what iTunes version, I get errors 21 or 1600 or the message, that my device is not compatible with the firmware.

    Does anyone have any Ideas? I am totally helpless now, no more Ideas ...

    Edit: Baseband: 5.11.07

    Are you on old or new bootrom?
    Do you have a tethered JB?

    Make sure you're using the right firmware. There are different firmwares for different models, even though they have similar names. The other thing is to make sure you're specifying the correct model. Are you positive you don't have a 3G?

    Another thing you could try is to download TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode. It's better to try to get it out of recovery mode than to reinstall software, since you have a greater chance of losing your unlock/JB.

    iPhone 3gs 3.1.2 won't take Blackrain

    Hello I am having a similar problem. My phone says v 3.1.2, cydia says I have 4.1 in my shsh. I have not been able to connect to wifi in 2 days and in a attempt to fix this I tried the "reset network" technique. I have tried blackrain 4 times and it keeps taking me back to the iTunes screen. Any idea what I did wrong?

    Use spirit to jailbreak.
