Ran Blackra1n without a problem! Downloaded Cydia and installed Winterboard. Once winterboard was downloaded and installed, I was prompted in Cydia to ReBoot iPhone. I clicked the button, phone powered off, restarted and now can not load past the white apple logo. Do I need to restore my phone? Will iTunes even recognize the phone if it wont boot up?
Any help is greatly appreciated

done. sooooo easy! i followed the OP's directions and everything took the very first attempt.
i'm running windows vista, and upgraded from JB 3.0.1 32GB 3GS to OS 3.1.2. all seems well thus far (just finished installing cydia).
all hail geohot!

you don't actually 'lose' access to anything. JB only opens the door for more great things.
this was a big question in my mind before JBing also. now, come over to the darkside...

1rst GEN iPHONE
I have a question,
I have the iPhone 1rst Generation (16Gb) and as shown on this video( youtube.com/watch?v=kk6x4yGbflw), I pushed on the button "Restore and Update". From there I have the 3.1.2 FW. I heard that if you JB the iPhone 3G and 3GS you'll have a pb with the BaseBand and will probably loose your phone, so MY QUESTION Will be:
Is the Problem with the BaseBand on the iPhone 3G and 3GS (when you Jailbreak with blackra1n), will also occure with the 1rst Gen. If there'll be no pb, should I have any pb with calling and will my iPhone be as good as before(as "phone")??(I'm asking this question because I never heard any info on the 1rst Gen anywhere and because I don't want to loose my device :s)

I would like some input and help if you guys wouldn't mind =)
Ok, I'm basically still running version 2.2.1 (I know, really old). I didn't want to upgrade my JB software or apple software until the whole 3.1.2 MMS came out. So now it's finally here, 3.1.2 JB.
What are my options to get this thing started?
Restore the whole phone , start from scratch ? and upgrade to Apple's 3.1.2 first. Then obviously follow the Blackrain JB ?
What if I just upgraded to apple's 3.1.2 first without even restoring it? Or should I restore it first to erase and delete all the OLD JB ?
that's my biggest question I guess. what's the better way of doing this.

I'm needing a step by step for jailbreaking a 3G w/OS 3.1.2
I am running XP. 9.1 iTunes. from what I've been reading I may not be able to unlock but that's fine with me. I'm new at this so when I say "step by step" I mean every bit of that, haha! thanks for any info. oh, just so i know, what are some disadvantages of JB?

A newbie to iPhone. Just got a 3GS a few days ago. updated to 3.1.2
Have read thru about this Blackra1n thing but still don't really get on the point of unlockers. Perhaps someone can enlighten me on this.
My iPhone 3GS is updated to 3.1.2. In my country, there is no such things as locked phone. So basically my set is an official unlock set.
If i use this blackra1n to jailbreak, will it work for me?
If you guys mentioned that it will be lock. Then my phone will be lock to which teleco?
Can someone enlighten me on this?
