Factory Unlocked 3GS JB Issues
Here is my problem I just bought a factory unlocked 32GB
3gs and am trying to jail break it but when I run blackra1n
RC3 it never shows the picture of geohot but says my phone
is Jailbroken and then it gets stuck with a blank screen saying
wait until reboot which never happens. The other question
is I am on T-Mobile is there a way to get the tethering to
work with out jailbreaking it has 3.1.2 and 5.11.07
thanks for any help

as for the jailbreak issue try reading around a bit. theres an easy fix for it (DFU-restore-rejailbreak with diff usbport/computah ~.o) since its new i doubt you have much on it.
Everyone recommends blackra1n and so do I, but another option would be to try PwnageTool 3.1.2, aka pwnage pie.

Thanks for the quick response, and sorry for the
I have read around and I guess there is a lot of bad
info out on the web because there are a lot of
people saying it is possible to tether without jailbreaking
As for the jailbreaking problem I will do some more
research using your suggestions. Thanks again

Why am I getting this when I click on the windows version to the link in the first post in the thread?
No hotlinking to blackra1n.com is allowed
If you came here from the blackra1n website be sure you aren't blocking HTTP referrers. Some firewalls and browser plugins do this.

Hi. I've tried downloading Blackra1n and was able to jailbreak my phone. Things were running fine until I supposedly added some defective repo sites which caused my Cydia to crash. I had no other way but to recover my phone to default using iTunes. I tried to re-install Blackra1n again and subsequently Cydia. The apps available in Cydia are back but everytime I finish installing any apps/games/utilities fm Cydia, the phone crashes and goes to Recover Mode. What can be done? I'm on 3GS, original 3.1.2.

1. SSH into your iPhone/iPod, hopefully you know how to do that.
2. Go to the root of your iPhone/iPod [/].
3. Navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list
4. Download the Cydia.list to your computer and open it using any text editor.
5. Delete the source you added. For example, "deb http://www.iphone.org.hk/apt/ ./" if this is the source you want to delete, simply delete that one line. NOT THE WHOLE DOCUMENT. Make sure you save the document as is. We are NOT adding any extensions.
6. Drag the saved document into the sources.list.d folder and replace the file.

you also might notice the url behind the link goes to
someone is pushing a source and hiding where it goes. that could be a way to push a virus on you instead of what you think you're downloading
