I was on 3.0, I upgraded to 3.1.2 through iTunes, then did the jailbreak with blackra1n, and it went flawlessly the first time on my 32GB 3GS. Going to watch the battery drain and all that since I did do a restore of my old settings, worst case I'll restore as new and re-jailbreak.

OK, just though i would post my JB experience. Once again, I am using a PC (vista) iPhone 3g (Out of the box, updated through iTunes to 3.1.2, never previously JB'd). Downloaded blackrain according to intructions. 1st attempt seemed locked on the recovery screen. Tried it again ending al iTunes related functions and processes in the background and it seemed to work. Thought all was good except I could not use any apps that were dowloaded through iTunes. Later sync'd w/ iTunes and all systems are currently go! I am loving playing around with Cydia.

So I have tried blackra1n on both vista and xp. Same issue happens with both. It sits in recovery mode forever, I unplug it eventually and it says that upon restart blackra1n will be available to install. It's not there. I have now done this at least 10 times, I actually had to restore the iphone a few times when using the vista computer because it locked up in the early phases of putting blackra1n on the phone.
I have done all the steps for vista (run as admin, run in xp service pack 2 compatibility, closed all itunes related processes, tried running it from desktop, C drive, D drive...everywhere)
For the love of god somebody tell me they know what I can do to fix this.

I googled every known process to Itunes, killed all of them, and closed every other program that was running.
My phone will either lock up in the recovery mode, and never get to the part where blackrain says it is running, or it will go through and have done nothing.
In the former case, I have to completely restore my phone. This has happened my last 3 attempts on my vista desktop. I am going to give it a couple more tries on my XP laptop, but i doubt it will work.
This is very frustrating.
Thanks for the response.

Got it working. Used my laptop that was on XP again...it went through the whole process, but got stuck on "running". After 10 minutes i reset my iphone with it still plugged in. After the reset, nothing was added or taken off my phone, so I run it again....poof, instantly worked.
So my advice to people that are having trouble with it freezing on "running" in the blackrain program and the ipod having the "connect to itunes", reset your ipod with it plugged in still, then run blackrain again.

I love the blackra1n jb. Worked for me in 30 seconds, first attempt. The developer is to be highly praised. Nice job.
However my cydia install seems to have been corrupted. I cannot access the app at all (crashes when I try to access it). So no cydia means no appsync. Is anyone else having this problem? Any ideas? Would a re-jailbreak fix the problem?

Gmail No Longer Working After Blackra1n
I JB'ed my phone with no problems what so ever. Installed Cydia and installed a few apps worked like a champ.
But then I noticed the problem. My emails stopped working correctly. Firstly, I'm using gmail via Microsoft Exchange. The emails seem to get sent, people reply to them and I can see them in my other emails, but on my iphone they just hang in my outbox. And when viewing emails being sent to me, they take forever to download. This used to be insanely quick. Any ideas?
Is anyone else having this issue? Other services seem to work fine, my AIM messages come through.

Edit: Toggled Gmail off through Exchange and back on through SMTP and email is fine that. Something screwy with Exchange and blackra1n I think.

Not saying it definitely isn't a jailbreak issue, but just my experience and opinion.

Hey guys I am having problems with my email as well.
Just JB with blackra1n and it worked fine.
However none of my passwords seem to be saving.
Two different issues:
Whenever I enter my password in the settings in authenticates, but when I open my email it says I need to enter the password. I tried deleting my account and recreating it when it tries to verify the account I get this error (Cannot Get Mail 'The user name or password for "imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com" is incorrect.
When I enter the password it does not try to verify account and does nothing
Also now whenever I get off a call it asks me to enter my voicemail password.
Internet works fine and so do the calls.... Any ideas? Help would be greatly appreciated
