BlackSn0w Unlock for iPhone Baseband 05.11.07 + BlackRa1n RC3 Jailbreak Released - iPhoneHeat

BlackSn0w Unlock for iPhone Baseband 05.11.07 + BlackRa1n RC3 Jailbreak Released

Finally, it’s BlackSn0w day. GeoHot has released BlackSn0w to unlock iPhone Baseband 05.11.07 and BlackRa1n RC3. GeoHot changed his mind and released BlackSn0w accessible from BlackRa1n RC3 today instead of tomorrow.

GeoHot has also updated BlackRa1n, jailbreak for iPhone OS 3.1.2, to RC3. BlackRa1n RC3 now comes with:

  • Hacktivation support. (Which means after jailbreaking your iPhone, you will be able to install BlackSn0w to unlock iPhone 05.11.07 from withing, installs when you jailbreak iPhone using BlackRa1n).
  • Supports Tiger+PPC
  • The fastest jailbreak ever, is now 15 seconds faster.
  • The best part of this BlackRa1n RC3 is that it also enables official tethering.

How the BlackRa1n RC3 and BlackSn0w Works

For Loyal BlackRa1n users:

If you are a loyal blackra1n user who kept the on your iPhone, run it. You will see Icy replaced by an option “ra1n”. Install this to upgrade your app. After upgrading, run again. You will see “sn0w”. Install this, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone.

New Users

If you are new to the scene, just looking for an unlock, finally ready to upgrade to 3.1.2 and the accompanying baseband, willing to restore for the latest and greatest, or stuck on the “Connect to iTunes” screen, you are in luck. Jailbreaking and unlocking have never been easier. Go to, click on the logo corresponding to your operating system, run the app, and click “make it ra1n”. When your phone reboots, you’ll see Run this, install blacksn0w, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone.

PwnageTool Users

If you jailbroke using pwnage or deleted your, you are in luck too. Sometime later in the sn0wday, blacksn0w will be added to Cydia, and instructions will be posted here.

iPhone 2G Users

If you are on a 2G iPhone, blacksn0w isn’t an option for you. But BootNeuter is, a completely free permanent unlock for your 2G. Of course, blackra1n will work great, and even hacktivate for you.

Also, a note. This may be the best iPhone users ever have it. Be sure, if you have a 3GS or iPod Touch 3, to use Cydia’s “On File” or Firmware Umbrella in order to be able to restore to 3.1.2 in the future. And as always, the baseband cannot be downgraded, so be *super* careful with updates if you need the unlock.

GeoHot has given Credit to iH8Sn0w for point out at+xemn command that resulted is Baseband 05.11.07 unlock. You can download BlackRa1n RC3 from the link below:

Download BlackRa1n RC3 (BlackSn0w is accessible from within after Jailbreak).

A guide on using BlackRa1n and BlackSn0w to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone will be posted soon.

Stay Tuned.

Do i need to have an internet connection to execute the process of jailbreaking?

iPhoneHeat November 12, 2009, 11:56 pm

Not or jailbreak process but for downloading BlackRa1n..

SSS November 7, 2009, 7:56 pm


I have done this. Thanks.
Once I have installed Cydia it has come up well.

After this I have some issues.

I am able to successfully install apps from Cydia but unable to view the icons on the sprintboard. Any suggestions?

I see black icon spaces in this springboard and nothing happens when I click them. However, if I search the app through spotlight I can see the Icon and open the app and it works!

Any help

iPhoneHeat November 15, 2009, 11:01 pm

yes you can

zferrari November 18, 2009, 4:29 pm

I did the above on a 3GS with 3.1 out of the box with 5.11.07 baseband

All worked fine – go the Wifi problem which i did the reset network setting to solve.

NOw i have another problem. The phone keeps going to “No Sim” where it is supposed to have bars. It does that frequently and comes back by itself. I have disabled 3G but that did not fix it.

I am using Etisalat Sim – Dubai

Try installing blacksn0w again

Just bought the iPhone 3gs 32Gb from Att yesterday. Out of the box, it has 3.1 with “Modem Firmware” 05.11.07 (I assume that is the same as the Baseband?) Anyway, should I update to 3.1.2 before jailbreaking and unlocking?

iPhoneHeat December 7, 2009, 5:56 pm

each iDevice is hackable to date..
however latest iTouch and 3GS units purchased after September supports tether jailbreak only.. which means on reboot you’ll lose jailbreak
