    FINALLY !!!!! I got this thing to work... seems the key was disable Bonjour service in system Config ( Run > MSCONFIG > Services) i disabled both Bonjour and IPOD.. but leave checked "Apple Mobile device" and worked as advertized.. defo gonna donate

    Nice one Geohot

    cheers

    I did this twice. once on XP SP 3 and once on win7... both time the Bonjour thing was the key... ( Note on win 7 Blackra1n was run in XP SP3 compatibility mode)

    well im now even more confused! right after my last post like 2 mins ago, i un hooked my iphone and the blacra1n window pops up saying

    "enjoy your jailbroken phone"
    Your jailbreak is done once the phone reboots.
    If this was the simplest jb ever then please donate.....
    if you paid for this software, demand a refund.......
    available free from blackra1n.com, funded soley on after the fact donations.."

    But its not done, no cydia, the phone is just the same as it was after upgrade to 3.1.2!!

    What goes on? have i missed something?

    Cheers

    It worked for me by being persitent less than 5 minutes. I'm using windows 7 and what I did was run blackrain when the iphone turn into recovery mode it froze so i closed blackrain I opened itunes and rebooted the phone into recovery mode when i did that i left itunes open and started blackrain at the same time and it worked.

    This is exactly what I've got. Using XP, followed the instructions and get that message but when I restart my iPhone(3GS) there's no difference to be seen.

    Anyone got any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

    One minute lets get this straight, u closed blackra1n, opened itunes and you rebooted the phone and then manually put it in recovery mode?

    i cant get this to work. ive updated the click make it rain. then the phone goes into recovery mode and thats it. blackrain just says running
    Guys, if you need help please post your device name (iPod Touch 2g-1g, iPhone 2G-3G-3GS, etc), your iTunes version, your device's OS version, and your Windows type (xp, vista, or 7). And post the steps you've taken to prepare for the jailbreak. The more information you can give/ recall the better.

    I'm sure there are plenty of generous people out there willing to help you but are tired of asking these basic questions. If you don't post these things then most people that CAN help will just ignore you.

    Also, don't listen to those on here that call you a noob for asking questions, they had to ask people and search for information at one time too.

    In geohotz case maybe there is an I in team. Commendable work as usual by the tyke. I plugged my phone in and hit "Make it Ra1n" and 10 seconds later it reports back that my phone was successfully jailbroken. It rebooted with the BlackRa1n.com jpeg and there it was the BlackRa1n app. This was done on windows 7 x64.

    sorry. Jahooba, your right, i am just so stressed out....


    iPhone 3G 16G
    Widows vista 32bit
    iTunes 9

    upgraded iphone to 3.1.2 through itunes > downloaded blackra1n > closed broswer > Disabled bonjour services/ipod services in msconfig >launched Blackra1n says running and iphone screen stuck on itunes/USB logo.

    The last time i tried, when i unplugged iphone from usb, a box poped up saying JB was done, but no difference!

    Now can anyone help? If so thank you.

    Edit to say, just done it again, and again the pop up says |JB done!! but when i click OK the smaller Blackra1n box says Done, waiting for re-boot.

    I've got a 2g and want it unlocked, how do i use this and unlock it aswell? As the 2g baseband hasn't been updated in ages.?
    I tried doing it with my 2G just to see if it'd work, but when I updated to 3.1.2 with iTunes from jailbroken and unlocked 3.0.1 (with redsn0w) it took away my unlock and said to insert a supported SIM card. I've downgraded back to 3.0.1 jailbroken and unlocked until I figure out another way.

    Last time, when GeoHot came out with purplera1n, the Dev Team released an updated redsn0w for us to use.
