How to Jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch OS 3.1.2 Using BlackRa1n RC3 - iPhoneHeat

How to Jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch OS 3.1.2 Using BlackRa1n RC3

GeoHot has released RC3 of BlackRa1n jailbreak for iPhone. So, In this guide you will learn how to jailbreak iPhone and iPod Touch on OS 3.1.2 using BlackRa1n for Windows.


  • BlackRa1n jailbreaks  all iPhones and iPod Touch models
  • BlackRa1n jailbreak will work with the latest 3.1.2 firmware. So Update to Latest iPhone OS 3.1.2 first.
  • Now BlackRa1n RC3 features BlackSn0w that will let you unlock your iPhone even Baseband 05.11.07 is unlockable now.
  • BlackRa1n also Jailbreaks iPod Touch 3G but it’s a tethered jailbreak. Which means whenever you would restart your Touch or it turns OFF because of empty battery then you will need to rerun BlackRa1n.

In the end, usual warning applies: Use it on your Own.

Jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch using BlackRa1n RC3

  • Update your iTunes to latest version.
  • Install the latest firmware in your iPod or iPhone. You can download iPhone OS 3.1.2 from here:
  • Download iPhone OS 3.1.2 for iPhone 2G
  • Download iPhone OS 3.1.2 for iPhone 3G
  • Download iPhone OS 3.1.2 for iPhone 3GS

For those with a new iPhone 3GS (updated Bootrom), BlackRa1n only supports a tethered jailbreak. This means that once jailbroken you should not let your battery die. If it does die you will need to reconnect it to the computer and use BlackRa1n to boot it.

Steps are same for Windows and Mac users

Step 1
Go to:

and download BlackRa1n RC3 by clicking on the Windows/Mac icon at the bottom of the page and save it on your desktop.

IMPORTANT: Download BlackRa1n only from the website mentioned above.

Step 2
Now execute the BlackRa1n.exe from your desktop by double clicking on it.


Step 3
Now connect your iPhone or iPod to your PC and hit the make it Ra1n button.


Now your iPhone will go into Recovery Mode.


Regular Recovery Mode screen will be replaced with picture of GeoHot.


Step 4

After the BlackRa1n has done its stuff, your iPhone or iPod will Reboot.


Then a Popup will appear telling you that BlackRa1n is a free tool and if you like it you can donate at [email protected]


Step 5
Once your iPhone is back ON you will see a BlackRa1n named icon on your iPhone SpringBoard. Which means your iPhone or iPod has successfully been jailbroken.

Tap on the BlackRa1n icon on SpringBoard. (Make sure your iPhone/iPod have internet connection)


Step 6
Now choose your desired installer from the given choices and press the Install button at top-right. Choose Sn0w only if your want to Unlock.


BlackRa1n will download your selected package and then install it.


Step 7
Once all done your iPhone/iPod will respring and you will find your selected package icon on SpringBoard.


That’s it. If you have any problem or any query, use the comment section.

To unlock your iPhone, follow this guide:

for iPhone 3GS and 3G
Unlock iPhone OS 3.1.2 Baseband 05.11.07

for iPhone 2G:
Unlock iPhone 2G OS 3.1.2

Do I need to restore to factory settings or can I just install blackrain immediately and keep my current apps and music in iTunes.

iPhoneHeat November 4, 2009, 3:45 am

Fresh restore is recommended to jailbreak iPhone with BlackRa1n .. however u still can give it a shot without restore

davidlechuga77 November 4, 2009, 4:58 am

The regular recovery screen was not replaced with picture of GeoHot, and it took a long time to reboot. Is there something I did Wrong? I have the 3GS and firmware 05.11.07. Although the popup telling me that BlackRa1n is a free tool did show up, my phone rebooted and I didn’t see the blackrain logo on the springboard. How do I know my information wasn’t compromised when I did this?

iPhoneHeat November 4, 2009, 2:03 pm

Perform a restore and try again

noob#1 November 13, 2009, 11:42 am

will this void the warranty of my iphone from apple or any carrier?

iPhoneHeat November 13, 2009, 2:15 pm


Xsya November 4, 2009, 9:18 am

Hello, I am new to all this so I apologize for the n00b question. I just jailbroke my 2g for the very first time and I used redsn0w 0.7.1 to OS 3.0 with success – now I am addicted to the idea of pushing my iPhone to its full potential.

Since I am new to all this, and since my iphone is now unlocked/jailbroken. How do I update to the latest OS via this method? Let me know if these are the correct steps please – I want to be sure I do this right:

1. Open iTunes / Shift Restore and restore to latest 3.1.2

2. Then follow the steps on this website.

I wasn’t sure about #1 but thats what I did with redsn0w then followed the directions and all was good. ANY advice for a virgin jailbreaker would be most apreciated!

Thanks all

iPhoneHeat November 4, 2009, 2:07 pm

go ahead…

ukasha November 4, 2009, 5:29 pm

After jailbreaking with BlackRa1n RC3 when I restart my iPhone, it get back restore. Pls help me. My iPhone is 3GS, OS 3.1.2, S/N …941…

iPhoneHeat November 5, 2009, 4:03 pm

Make sure you’re following the instructions as is…

mlk November 5, 2009, 3:02 pm


will this will Activate my iPhone,
i have Iphone 3GS-32 – Locked on AT&T Sim and i don’t have the sim, and it’s hard to to get it.


iPhoneHeat November 5, 2009, 4:04 pm

Yeah.. Jailbreak it using the above guide then in the end there’s an Unlock guide link .. after jailbreaking iPhone 3GS follow that guide to use other carrier Sim

April November 5, 2009, 6:13 pm

I have a non AT&T sim card. Do I perform the restore and the rest of the above steps with my non AT&T sim card in place? I seem to remember having to remove it and then replace it during procedures I used before to Jailbreak/unlock my phone.


jerome November 6, 2009, 3:28 am

i have the ipod touch 3g 8gb and i was wondering if i download blackrain on it and it dies or turns of cause of battery can i still use it normally when i plug it in or do i have to do somethin else iam kinda nerves doin this…

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 5:17 am

Don’t worry.. just follow the instructions and you ll have a jailbroken iTouch 🙂

Jerome November 6, 2009, 5:41 am

So if I download it and it dies and I plug it in my computer and then I charge it can I unplug it and use it normally or to turn it back on I have to run it with blackrain again? And if I don’t run blackrain on it an I had downloaded games for blackrain can I still use them I juss want to clear some things about this thing before I use it. Better to be safe then srry

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 5:55 am

Tethered jailbreak means that on each reboot or turning ur iTouch Off will result in removal of Jailbreak hack..
each time you restart or turn off ur iTouch/ turned off because of nill battery then only thing you need to do is >> re run BlackRa1n to jailbreak..

Jailbroken/cracked apps only runs on Jailbroken iTouches..

There’s nothing like killing your iPod involved

Jerome November 6, 2009, 6:00 am

Oooooo okay thank u sooo much that a relief I have 1more question if u download games from blackrain are they free? And there exactlly like the ones on iTunes and if my battery dies does the games that I download from blackrain go aswell and can I still play them even if I don’t reboot blackrain on my iPod

dperitz November 6, 2009, 7:19 am

I got to step 4 on the jailbreak but the icon never appeared on my SpringBoard. Now, when the iphone turns on it says “emergency calls only” and tells me “restore needed”. Any recommendations?



iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 3:14 pm

Perform a simple restore via iTunes then use BlackRa1n..

Bedulus November 6, 2009, 8:43 am

Firstly thanks for this guide
Im havin problems though.

8gb iphone 3rd gen
it was already jailbroken and i downloaded blacksn0w from cydia and still get no service

I done a restore with the official firmware and then jailbroke again using blackrain this time, i’ve followed all your instructions but no luck.
Is it not working because my bootloader is 5.09?……
I’d appreciate the help

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 3:18 pm

why not try installing BlackSn0w from within BlackRa1n.
and also try resetting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network settings..
if u r @ T-Mobile then make sure you’ve turned 3G off

Bedulus November 6, 2009, 9:17 am

Hi again
I just Done a fresh flash again,the iphone recognized my virgin mobile sim full signal shows up but no calls
My o2 sim does nothing,no signal at all

i never activated my phone because u said it was not needed,just restore phone using itunes, and then patch with blackra1n right?

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 3:19 pm

yes restore >> BlackRa1n >> BlackSn0w (If you want to use Unofficial carrier Sim)

Bedulus November 6, 2009, 7:41 pm

yea i did that last night also with no luck,what your saying is that no matter what bootloader i have it should work right?
OK then what about if the phone is american like i expect,im in the uk does that matter?

Im gonna give it 1 more attempt

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 10:42 pm

YES! every iPhone is unlockable to date.. even baseband 05.11.07..
Just jailbreak using Blackra1n and then follow the BlackSn0w UNlock guide linked at the bottom to get other carriers working

Jerome November 6, 2009, 10:22 am

I have another quesion if I have apps already downloaded from iTunes and also pictures and vids will they be deleted when I download blackrain to my iPod

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 3:20 pm

BlackRa1n do NOT delete anything from your ITouch.. Restore does but you can reSync them if you had back them up before restore

melanie November 6, 2009, 2:07 pm

I download jailbreak and folowed the instructions and once i got to the rebooting stage it kept loding the apple symble then turning off agin. how do i stop it from doing that? iv held the restart button and tryed charging it but it turns its self off straight after the appel symble comes up. help me!!

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 3:22 pm

Hold down the both HOme and Power/Sleep buttons… Your iPhone will tuen OFF then ON.. keep holding untill iTunes finds you iPhone in recovery mode..
close iTunes
Run the blackRa1n

Jerome November 6, 2009, 5:45 pm

If I jailbreack my iPoD can I still go back later on to an unjailbreaked iPod touch and is soo tell me plz

iPhoneHeat November 6, 2009, 10:47 pm

simply restore the official firmware.. that’s it

Bedulus November 6, 2009, 10:29 pm

nope,no luck watsoever. thats a shame because i’ve tried every method explained but i get no signal on o2 and vodaphone and get full signal on virgin but no calls.
Thanks for your help

Bedulus November 6, 2009, 11:35 pm

1 more question
right now i have a o2 sim card in my 16gb 3g iphone with no service, i just plugged in to sync some apps and itunes wants to update carrier settings,i tried not knowing if it would mess up but itunes gave me the error message.
Do you think that i need this carrier settings update, if so i’d have to restore again wouldn’t i?
but i wouldn’t be able to activate phone
please enlighten me

iPhoneHeat November 7, 2009, 1:34 am

Carrier update fixed issues with carrier services.. Like AT&T issued carrier update to Fix MMS issues.
btw- the more you play with your iPhone the more you’ll learn..
now that there’s no Baseband threat for iPhone users so go ahead and try every method that comes to your mind..

Tip: after installing blackSn0w.. manual reboot + Resetting network settings + AirPlane Mode toggle are favorable steps to get the carrier service on unlocked iPhones.

April November 7, 2009, 1:18 am

I have a 2G already jailbroken/unlocked phone still running 2.2 OS. (Leaving my T-mobile sim card in) I downloaded the offered firmware. I installed it using shift + restore in iTunes. I followed the Geohot instructions exactly and it worked LIKE A CHARM!! It worked so well, my phone was still unlocked and I could still make calls without having to re-unlock my phone. Thank so much! I will be donating (eventually) for sure!!

iPhoneHeat November 7, 2009, 1:36 am

Yeah unlock is required for the first timers :p

April November 7, 2009, 7:34 pm

Yeah, I wish that would have been made more clear, I wouldn’t have been so nervous about upgrading. I was under the imrepssion that I’d have to rejailbreak/unlock everything.

FIDEL November 8, 2009, 10:01 am

hi i need help to unlocked my iphone it was unlocked before to be used in t-mobile but i locked by accident n now is only showing th itunes icon n the usb cord .

iPhoneHeat November 8, 2009, 8:46 pm

You’ve come to the right place..
first, jailbreak it using above guide.. then unlock using the guide linked at the bottom.

thomas November 9, 2009, 12:20 pm


I tryed to jailbrake my Iphone withe BlackRain. First I installed the Firmware with Itunes. Then I started BlackRain. The program starts the recovery and then goes into running mode… My Iphone displays the connection to Itunes and never changes… I don’t see any images from Blackrain… After about 20min I get the message done, wait for reboot..
When the Iphone reboots, I get the message; invalid SIM card, slide to unlock. when I do so I can make an emergency call, but it’s not possible to go to the springboard…and unlock my Iphone… I tryed this 2 times but with the same result.

I’ve got an 2G Iphone (silver back) and I was running under version 2.2.2 – firmware 04.05.04_G…

Can you help me…?

Many thanks!!!

iPhoneHeat November 9, 2009, 7:05 pm

try changing the USB post or on another system.

thomas November 9, 2009, 8:00 pm

try changing what…? What do you mean with USB post? is chinees for me…?
On another system, you mean another PC…?
And do everthing over (installing the new firmware, running blackra1n, and then the unlock procedure…?

already thanks for the support!


iPhoneHeat November 9, 2009, 9:24 pm

common sense: USB Post >> USB port.. it’s just a typo
and yes you got it right..

Perform a fresh restore..
use black ra1n
Reset network settings (Settings > General > Reset)
then try downloading Cydia
then install bootneuter (if u had unlocked ur iPhone before this.. u would get signals w/o using it)

jpodtouch December 12, 2009, 8:31 pm

when i use the jailbreak the i-Touch will work perfectly but when i turn it off it asks me if i want to restart it and i click yes but it replaces my i-touch back to factory settings any advice?

iPhoneHeat December 1, 2009, 5:16 pm

iTouch 3rd Gen supports tethered jailbreak only. which means you need to run blackra1n each time you reboot your iTouch

Faizan December 1, 2009, 11:43 am

How much time does it takes to complete “entering recovery”

iPhoneHeat December 1, 2009, 5:21 pm

A few seconds.. may be 10-30

gilly41664 December 1, 2009, 6:17 pm


did everythin as said…but after everythin…my screen says…No Sim card installed…Insert a Valid sim….but..i am afraid that i don’t have an at&t sim with me and i am not in the States…so hard to find an at&t sim…

any help plz…thx…

iPhoneHeat December 1, 2009, 6:44 pm

You need to unlock your iPhone after jailbreaking it.
3GS & 3G: install blackSn0w
2G: Install Bootneuter

gilly41664 December 1, 2009, 7:06 pm

yes got u…but after the jailbreak…it wont let me pass in without an at&t sim and unlock and says emergency calls only…thats the only screen i see with the message about the sim displayed…:(

iPhoneHeat December 2, 2009, 1:09 pm

it means you couldn’t successfully jailbnreak your iPhone.. once jailbroken you won’t stuck at emergency screen..
repeat the jailbreak process.. and make sure to perform a fresh restore before starting over

Thetaz01 December 1, 2009, 7:27 pm

does anyone know, if this BREAKS internet teathering?
I am currently running 3.0.1 with the app plug in for internet teathering and cydia and all the other fun stuff..
If i upgrade to 3.1.2 will this prevent me from internet teathering my fone via the usb cable???

iPhoneHeat December 2, 2009, 1:10 pm

there is a guide for that 😉 under iPhone Guides Section..

Shadow_00 December 3, 2009, 8:32 pm

I have a 3g ipod touch, I saw that if you turn off the the ipod it will remove the jailbreak, if I put the ipod to sleep (which I normally always do) does this will remove the jailbreak too? I just don’t want to connect the ipod to the PC everytime I put to sleep the ipod.


iPhoneHeat December 4, 2009, 1:14 am

this applies to reboot/turning iPhone OFF

Shadow_00 December 4, 2009, 1:56 am

hello, i can download and install the OS 3.1.2 and then jailbreak with blackra1n. All step are ok and can use. But i can’t join with iphone browser and Disc Aid . They said that my phone is not jailbroken.
ple reply me iphone heat

genedootson December 6, 2009, 6:57 pm

hey, really great work you’ve done here! i thank you and will be sending a donation my next available paycheck. i have one problem, however. it seems that after the jailbreak my “9” on the dialer pad and my “backspace” key on the keyboard (both share the same locale on the touchscreen) wont respond when tapped. so i now have no way of erasing the last character entered or anyway of adding the number nine in text or when making calls. is this a problem anyone else has had or is it simply a coincidence that spot went dead at the time of jailbreaking? any insight you could offer would be greatly appreciated. if it turns out that i’m just shit out of luck, do you know what all is involved in getting that issue fixed, replaced, repaired? just curious, as i certainly have no use for a phone without a nine and that isn’t able to backspace when texting. again, thanks for the work you’ve done. you really know what you are doing. thanks for your time, i hope you can help me one way or another.

iPhoneHeat December 7, 2009, 5:39 pm

I dont think that it’s a software issue..
why not perform a simple restore via iTunes.. and do not jailbreak this time.. check the touch pad when you’re @ emergency call screen.. If it’s a software issue it will then be resolved.. in case of HW level issue touch still won’t work

deedeedamn December 7, 2009, 12:17 am

I have jailbroken my iphone. but when i try to get winterboard from cydia everything gets erased. what can i do about this??

Sheldon McCraystein December 8, 2009, 1:13 am

I followed the above procedures…when the phone rebooted, i touched black ra1n and installed Cydia. It froze as it finished installation and now the phone is stuck on the startup apple icon screen and won’t come on. I’ve restarted several times and it won’t show up in iTunes…any ideas what I should do?

Thanks in advance for any/all help you can provide!

iPhoneHeat December 8, 2009, 3:32 am

hold down the both power and home buttons until connect to iTunes screen appear on your iPhone..
then perform a simple restore and use blackra1n

HI i did jailbrk on ma iphone 3gs vit 3.1.2 it vas wonderfull but ven i off ma cell n back to on it asks to connct to itunes everytime plz help….

thank you

iPhoneHeat December 11, 2009, 9:46 pm

latest units of 3gs are tethered jailbreak only which means on each reboot you need to rerun blackra1n

ramz December 15, 2009, 1:21 am

ya but hw can i solve d prob n vat is tethered?

thank u.

iPhoneHeat December 15, 2009, 1:37 am

sorry no solution to date..
Tethered jailbreak means whenever you reboot your iPhone/iTouch you lose jailbreak.. so you need to connect your iPhone to computer and rerun BlackRa1n to get to home screen and get jailbreak back..

happy December 11, 2009, 4:02 pm

I don’t know about this ..ready to throw it in the ocean did everything as directed .when the phone come on it says different Sim decedent please contact i tunes ???it is a 1 gen 2gb with 3.12 help

iPhoneHeat December 11, 2009, 10:13 pm

you can also download and install the custom firmware instead of using blckra1n:

happy December 12, 2009, 12:37 am

Liquidreign December 12, 2009, 10:36 pm

Here is my problem I just bought a factory unlocked 32GB
3gs and am trying to jail break it.

when I run blackra1n RC3 it never shows the picture of geohot
but says my phone is jailbroken

then it gets stuck with a blank screen saying
wait until reboot which never happens.

It has 3.1.2 and 5.11.07
thanks for any help

iPhoneHeat December 13, 2009, 9:51 pm

put iPhone into Recovery Mode (Press and hold power + home button untill to get to connect to iTunes screen)
then run blackra1n

Liquidreign December 14, 2009, 4:52 am

It goes into recovery mode when I run
blackra1n it still won’t work

RedZee December 15, 2009, 2:21 pm

hey there, thanks for the great guide, i have a problem however… i do everything and my iphone 2g gets jailbroken, but when i open blackrain to download cydia, i choose cydia from the list, and click install it says downloading for a minute but the bar doesnt move, then an error msg comes up saying ” Error Downloading Cydia” “Could not download. Errer: Errer Domain=NSURLErrorDomain Code=-1001 UserInfo=0x152f70 “timed out” any help? i tried reboting, reseting network settings… thanks in advance

lakersya00 December 16, 2009, 12:04 pm

I just bought my Iphone a day ago, and its running 3.1.2(7D11) and the model is MC135LL with firmware should i jail break it? with blackrain RC3? or will that not work

iPhoneHeat December 16, 2009, 6:23 pm

yes.. follow the guide above

TheS1ckness December 16, 2009, 8:26 pm

I jailbroke my iPod no problem. But when I try to jailbreak my 3g everything goes well and the success thing pops up but geohot doesn’t appear just a black screen. I tried about 10-15 times and I fail everytime. Why?

iPhoneHeat December 16, 2009, 9:25 pm

Go to task manager and kill following processes/services:
itunes, ipod service, itunes helper.. anything to do with the itouch or itunes. (close mdnsresponder as well)

then Run BlackRa1n..
If stuck at black screen.. run another copy of blackra1n

TheS1ckness December 17, 2009, 1:46 am

i sound like an idiot but what does it mean to “kill it”?

iPhoneHeat December 17, 2009, 1:58 am

Close them/end that process

TheS1ckness December 17, 2009, 4:22 am

i am doing all of this. WTF. why wont it work. i already have 3.2.1 last time i tried that custom firmware, my phone said slide for emergency. is it because of that?

iPhoneHeat December 17, 2009, 4:39 am

Custom Firmware has nothing to do with it..
BlackRa1n is not that much stable because it’s from GEOHOT not the Legendary Dev-Team..
Running more than 1 copies of blackra1n at the same time helped many users to get rid of such problems..
And retry after performing a fresh restore.

tomislav December 20, 2009, 7:02 am

hi i have iphone 2g on 2.2fw unlocked and jailbreak and i want to upgrade to 3.1.2 so haw to do it directlu upgrate from itunes or shift+restore using the downloaded firmware? and do i need to unlock again?im on tmobile its gona work when i upgrading sim card must be in iphone or doesent metter is it safe? thanks very match

iPhoneHeat December 20, 2009, 9:15 pm

update to 3.1.2 in anyway.. not a problem for 2G
then run blackra1n and jailbreak your iPhone..
you don’t need to unlock it again ..
simply reset the network settings

tomislav December 24, 2009, 4:18 am

hi i updated my iphone 2g to 3.1.2 its ok works great but youtube doesnt dork when i try to add source to instal push fix commes up message with this tekst:Did not find repository could not be find.This could be becouse you are trying to add legacy installer repository (these are not supported).Also this interface is only capable of working with exact repository urls.If you host a repository and are having issues please contact the author of cydia with any questions you have.How can i fix this pls help me thanks

motbabe December 21, 2009, 11:43 am

i tried to dl winterboard via cydia and the phone rebooted and back to recovery mode. how to solve this issue?

iPhoneHeat December 22, 2009, 12:57 am

3GS units purchased after September are tethered jailbreak only.. means you lose jailbreak whenever you reboot your iPhone

motbabe December 22, 2009, 5:01 am

Hi there, after tethered jailbreak via blackra1n, does it mean we cannot replaced the sms tone from cydia?

iPhoneHeat December 22, 2009, 5:27 am

anything that requires reboot will result in stucking at Restore screen.. DO NOT restore.. simply run blackra1n again and you’ll get back to your Springboard without losing anything you installed…
for Winterboard: When Cydia asks for Reboot, simple press the home button to close Cydia.. and Respring your iPhone from SBSettings if you have installed it from Cydia

motbabe December 22, 2009, 5:38 am

im ok with that. the thing is that i install a sms tone from cydia and i used winterboard to select the sms tone afterwhich i go to sms tone and hear the tone… no changes were made.

motbabe December 23, 2009, 3:39 pm

im still not getting the message tone worked… i select the message tone from winterboard and respring, but nothing changes the tone. why is that so? pls kindly revert. thks.

iPhoneHeat December 23, 2009, 10:59 pm

why not try another tone or the default iPhone tones

motbabe December 24, 2009, 5:41 am

meaning its not a common error everyone else is facing?

iPhoneHeat December 24, 2009, 5:49 am

No it’s not a common issue.. I don’t have any idea why it’s not working for you..
So simple solution is to try another tone from Cydia or use Defaults..
it’s not that big issue.

Yenna December 22, 2009, 10:02 am

After the Black rain program runs and then the Iphone restarts..The iphone does not connect to the network (by the service provider)tried two different service providers,Still no network access is found.So the blackrain apps does not work even with wifi.Tired and reset the all networks still does not work.My iphone is 3gs with latest as firmware as per the instructions.So i am not able to access or make calls.just does not recognize the SIM card at all.The Sim card is fine.
Need help

iPhoneHeat December 22, 2009, 9:43 pm

Follow the instructions carefully.. and make sure you kill the processes mentioned..
and reset network settings once jailbreak is complete

Yenna December 24, 2009, 11:35 am

Now that the I reset the network settings I resetted to erase all data.(I did not uninstall blackra1n from the iphone 3gs).The iphone switchs off and then it boots back to the white apple screen and then the iphone hangs.Its been two days now.I tried to reset it by pressing the home key and on/off button at the same time,It switchs off comes back on to the little white apple screen(moves no further).The charge in the phone runs dry and then after a full charge you switch on the iphone it comes the little white apple screen.Thats it.It does not go furthur.Please help.The itunes does not reconize the iphone is connected or not.I think because it does not move beyond the little white apple screen.What to do?

iPhoneHeat December 24, 2009, 10:01 pm

Put iPhone into recovery mode as suggested earlier:

then perform restore
then jailbreak

Samuel O Afriyie December 22, 2009, 10:44 am

hey there am having the same issue witch is that i have to connect my iphone3gs to a computer any time the power goes off because of the jailbreak but you know what am very very happy to connect it to a computer any time the power goes off than not to jailbreak it, so i thank you guys for been there for us,and i hope that you guys will come up with a solution for the situation soon, because you always does.

iPhoneHeat December 22, 2009, 9:43 pm

hammad December 23, 2009, 3:08 pm

Thanks alot, ur procedure worked absolutly fine. Again thanks alot for such a useful link

kidlat December 24, 2009, 10:44 pm


iPhoneHeat December 24, 2009, 11:26 pm

Once you reboot because of any reason and stuck at connect to iTunes Screen, simply connect iPhone to Computer and run the blackra1n.. no need to perform restore.

You need to do it every time you reboot iPhone .. DON’T restore just run the Blackra1n

tomislav December 25, 2009, 2:06 am

kidlat December 25, 2009, 4:13 am

Hi,I read about your comments that after september when you purchased 3gs everything is been tethered, I have other iphone that been purchased on september BUT I UPDATED ThE VERSION now if I unlocked this and reboot or turn it off I don’t have to use blackra1n again , even thou I updated

iPhoneHeat December 25, 2009, 5:30 am

actually it’s the updated BootROM in latest iDevices that does not support untethered jailbreak. May be your device was shipped earlier

Prenton12 December 25, 2009, 5:57 am

I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4 hours trying to fix ma iphone and u did it in 10 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

iPhoneHeat December 26, 2009, 9:49 am
tomislav December 26, 2009, 6:35 pm

i know that but i cannot add sources wnen i add that source tells me there is error and that hapends when i add any or or somthing else

iPhoneHeat December 26, 2009, 9:11 pm

I did research on your problem and found this:
Cydia Won’t Add a Repo:
There are very few possible explanations, here are a few:
1) The repo is down
2) You typed it wrong, many people forget to put the / at the end of a repo url.
3) You aren’t connect to a network … pretty self explanatory.

If your jailbroke using BlackRa1n then reinstall the Cydia.. and let it update when you open it first time.
If problem persists, Simple Restore and Rejailbreak

mctui December 27, 2009, 3:07 am

hi !!

i really DON’T find any custom firmwares of the ipod touch 3g ! i kinda searched the whole web .. but there are just some for the 1G and 2G ipod…

u guys know where to get a 3g custom firmware? thanks alot !!

iPhone December 27, 2009, 3:37 am

Hey iPhoneHeat . :] I tried BlackRa1n and i got nothing… I do all steps correct, and i didnt have BlackRa1n app in my iPhone… First time i installed it it works fine , but network was not working, so i decided to uninstall the blackra1n, and now i installed it no errors, but its not working… I mean i dont have app to BlackRa1n. Reply me, Sorry for bad English ;s

iPhoneHeat December 27, 2009, 10:01 am

Simply restore again and run BlackRa1n..
again if you face the network pproblem again.. Simply rest the network settings

iPhone December 27, 2009, 3:01 pm

Okay , now fine, but Phone is No Sim 😕 Help? ;/

iPhoneHeat December 27, 2009, 3:52 pm

Did you install the BlackSn0w (3GS, 3G) or Bootneuter (2G) to unlock iPhone?
and then reset Network Settings

iPhone December 27, 2009, 4:11 pm

Ummm… No . My WiFi is not working , and network not working, so i dont know how to install Blacksn0w without network, so yea… ://

iPhone December 27, 2009, 4:24 pm

P.S i got iPhone 3G

iPhoneHeat December 27, 2009, 11:37 pm

WiFi isn’t a jailbreak issue it’s @ Apple’s end when you update to 3.xx.

and for most of the jailbreakers it comes back with a simple reset to network settings..
Since you’re still out of luck.. why not try once more by repeating the whole process including fresh restore..
try Custom firmware:

jasveen December 27, 2009, 3:13 pm

Hey I have an Ipod touch 32 gb 3rd gen fw 3.1.2 MC model. I would like to know will this new version of Black Rain RC3 brick my ipod touch. And how much risk is involved in doing so.Im new to this since its my 1st ipod n pretty scared to fuck it up if i fail. Thx

iPhoneHeat December 28, 2009, 12:11 am

if anything goes wrong simply restore the official firmware

relwin83 December 27, 2009, 4:53 pm

Hey, I have succesfully upgraded my iphone with blackra1n, but the only problem is that the Sim carrier is not visible, i cannot make calls. In the settings option, the carrier tab is not present.

Nana December 28, 2009, 6:45 pm

Ive done all the steps but it keeps telling me to restore the settings and on my itouch 3.1.2 its giving me the screen with the usb connecting to the itunes thing. I tried reconnecting and re running black ra1n but it still gives me the same problem. Help please

iPhoneHeat December 30, 2009, 8:44 am

Perform a restore.. and then use Bl;ackRa1n

Spikky December 29, 2009, 11:30 am

I’m just wondering now as I’ve been out the loop for a while now since they where all saying you shouldn’t upgrade.

Does this mean I can perform a regular update to 3.1.2 through itunes now and I will be able to jailbreak with Blackra1n and then unlock with Blacksn0w?

iPhoneHeat December 30, 2009, 8:48 am

Yes.. everything is jailbreakable upto 3.1.2 05.11.07..
But if you’ve an older firmware, I recommend using the custom firmware first. if it down’t work then try blackra1n with a direct upgrade to 3.1.2
Custom firmwares:

jasveen December 30, 2009, 12:34 am

well i just used black rain and it failed….not only that after i restored it back to factory settings im havin problems in voice mail….seriously what the fuck??

computfreak December 31, 2009, 1:24 pm

I’m seeing a recurring thing if you are in restore mode use black rain again. This usually solves your problems.

mister_rubber_dickie December 31, 2009, 1:49 pm

Hello! I accidentally drained my new 64gb Ipod Touch 3G last night, subsequently, I need to rerun Blackra1n. But first I was asked to restore my iPod, so I did.

Then when everything was restored, I immediately rerun Blackra1n. Then, I was told that I have to wait for my Ipod to reboot, then it went black screen, I waited, still it was black screen, I think it hung. No reboot.

What should I do? Help me please.

oldmanstickers January 2, 2010, 9:27 am

I followed your guide to the letter, then also read all the comments for suggestions to fix, but still i get the same problems.

I run blackrain and get the recovery mode, to which i get the connect to itunes graphic on my phone. I then took your suggestion to un plugging, and replugging and running blackrain again, but now all black rain says is finding device. I left it for half an hour and no change.

I have done it 3 times now, same issue. Any more suggestions?

pajv21 January 4, 2010, 1:19 am

you have to plug your iphone wait itunes before running blackra1n and keep itunes opened all time

needhelp January 3, 2010, 1:24 am

I had once successfully jailbroken my phone however an application that was installing caused the phone to constantly reboot everytime sync was attempting. Had to restore the phone and now when I run blackra1n it does not proceed past entering recovery mode. I tried exiting the program and than running again but i get the message waiting for device. Anyone know how to resolve this issue? When I connect to itunes it says need to restore since phone is in recovery mode, It will not jailbreak through pcsuite.

After going thru all of the steps, the blackrain icon does not appear on the springboard. My brother was able to get it to come up on the first try, but after following all of the instructions, internet tethering option was still not showing up. We keep trying, and now are getting stuck at the first step (getting the icon to appear after making it rain).

What I do is:
1) Plug in my iPod
2) Run BlackRa1n
3) My iPod goes into restore mode(without the guy’s pic, but with the normal iTunes logo with the USB)
4) The BlackRa1n says it’s finished, and to wait for reboot.
5) My iPod screen stays black and never reboots untill I manually do it and then the BlackRa1n app isn’t on my iPod.

Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong or what could I check for to make it work?

I went through the transaction of jailbreaking my ipod and followed the exact instructions but it’s not appearing in my ipod.
I have a macintosh and an itouch version 3.1.3. I went to, i clicked the apple, it downloaded, i clicked blackra1n on my desktop, a box popped up and i clicked make it ra1n, my ipod turns off then back on showing the apple symbol then the plug into itunes thing then that turns off and the screen goes black (i can’t see anything but a light is still being produced from it) itunes said an ipod was found in recovery mode and i must restore it before it can be used with itunes (but when i click restore the warning pops up and says if i continue everything will be erased), on the blackra1n it says ‘enjoy your jailbroken iphone your jailbreak is done once the device reboots’, my ipod is still black but if i wait long enough the apple symbol will appear and it will say ipod in sync and on the computer it says backingup ipod, and once that’s over i look through my apps and there is no blackra1n.
What did I do wrong?

iPhoneHeat May 6, 2010, 2:05 pm

Coffeydude May 7, 2010, 7:51 am

Please help me how to unlock my iPhone.


iPhoneHeat May 26, 2010, 10:49 pm

Use RedSn0w and got for OS 3.1.3..
there’s a guide for that under jailbreak iPhone /redsn0w category

ajay May 27, 2010, 9:31 pm

Thanks for the response. I tried redsn0w with 3.1.3,ipsw, but no help. I tried with 3.1.2.ipsw and able to jailbreak as well as unlock my phone. Thanks again for your response and useful posts.

DK July 13, 2010, 8:17 pm

Hi iphoneheat, I’m stuck at step 2. downloaded blackra1n but unable to run the application. It says “This application has failed to srat because ASL.dll was not found”. Pls help as my 2G iphone is locked.

iPhoneHeat July 14, 2010, 1:26 am

go straight to 3.1.3 and use Spirit to jailbreak and ultraSn0w 0.93 to unlock

DK July 17, 2010, 8:24 pm

downloaded 3.1.3 but unable to install it to iphone via itune….
can i use spirit to jailbreak w/o upgrading to 3.1.3?

iPhoneHeat July 18, 2010, 2:00 am

Device info?

DK July 18, 2010, 7:09 am

it’s hanging at the screen connecting to itunes .

iPhoneHeat July 18, 2010, 12:18 pm

oh.. then you should be using RedSn0w 0.9.3. because Spirit requires an activated device not stuck at recovery

DK July 25, 2010, 12:44 pm

iPodmad August 4, 2010, 12:40 am

Dude, it’s to confusing

iPodmad August 4, 2010, 12:10 am

I did what you told me to do, I downloaded Blackra1n and it only gave me the option to download and unpack Rock and Cydia. And so, I did. Does this mean my iPod is jailbroken and I can get apps for free?

muhal August 13, 2010, 11:26 pm
