    Here is the Tutorial for Jailbreak iphone 3.1.2 with blackra1n

    WARNING: GeoHot jailbreak supports 3.1.2 do not update if you are on iPhone OS 3.0.1 or 3.0. Warning 3g and 3gs unlockers, do not upgrade to 3.1.2 using iTunes if you want to keep your unlock. Baseband cannot be downgraded. This one is Only Jailbreak not the Unlock. It worked on iphone 2G, 3G, 3GS.

    Thank you, Tothemobile, for posting that!

    This is all so tempting, but I need to know if anyone else besides happypants is having bad battery life. It's easy to jailbreak, but going back to non-jailbreak is a pain in the bum.

    That's good to know. Thanks! I have an arsenal of chargers, so I'll just have to use them more.

    OK so let me ask the stupid question. Does blackra1n only JB 3.1.2? or can I use it to JB any firmware? I'm currently on 3.1 and although I don't need my phone unlocked I'd like to retain the unlockability for future sale. So if 3.1.2 has to be updated to before I can run blackra1n I wont be able to try it out.

    I want to try jailbreaking as I have not done such yet but have many questions I have not found answers to looking through the forums.

    1. What do I do after I have jailbroken my phone as far as email, tunes, photos, apps I already have prior to jailbreak?

    2. Do I need to resync with iTunes in order to get all this info back on my device? I know not to update anything once jailbroke but how do I get the info(Contacts, Calender, Tunes, etc...) back on my phone? I am not trying to unlock as I am with AT&T, I just want to know how to get all of the above back on. Thanks so much for any info you guys can provide!!

    1. Same as you did before. JB doesn't change any of that.

    2. none of the info will go off your device.

    The whole process is a lot easier than you could imagine.

    After one initial hangup (i needed to disable my firewall) blackra1n installed without a hitch! It was quick and easy. I did run into an issue with Winterboard and Cydia. My phone froze up trying to install all my apps and themes. But after a reboot everything seems fine so far. Gonna keep an eye on the battery. but even before I jailbroke, I've always had to charge my phone once a day at least.

    Ok, attempt 1. . . never went to geohot recovery screen, I waited a few minutes. Recovery #1. Gonna make another try after recovery is complete. Should I reboot my phone once it is recovered? Any other advice? wait. . . uh-oh. . . it said "recovery could not complete. unknown error ocurred." ****.

    Thanks for the blackra1n JB tutorial. I'm on iPhone 3g and I haven't updated to 3.1.2 yet. I've read the tutorial and the only issue I have is #9 (9. Once your device reboots it will be jailbroken and you will notice a blackra1n icon on the desktop. Make sure you have an WiFi connection and press to launch the application) I don't have access to WiFi at home. So what's the alternative?

    Pardon me for being a bit naive here. But won't upgrading to 3.1.2 also update the baseband?

    Unlocking is not my concern, (I'm in the U.S. with AT&T) so if my baseband is changed from 4.26.08 to whatever the current is, will blackra1n still work for me?

    Furthermore, I have a friend who immediately updated to 3.1.1 when he got his iphone, so he was never able to jailbreak it (he facepalmed hard ). Will blackra1in work for him now after he updates to 3.1.2?

    Thank you very much!

    I am guessing that this is the way you will need to download Cydia to your iphone and it can't be done over 3G. You have no wireless router to connect to?

    Maybe go somewhere that offers free wifi?

    Yes upgrading to 3.1.2 will update the baseband, and that means you will not be able to unlock. But you will be able to jailbreak. Your friend can now jailbreak even though he has already updated (he just won't be able to unlock).

    I found a couple other tutorials that explained how to install cydia so I decided to jailbreak...I've tried approx. 10 times and each time my phone get stuck on running (iphone recovery mode with usb screen) I've searched the internet for solutions and I ended up stuck in recovery mode so I had to retore to factory settings. I've tried shutting down itunes services in background. I'm running windows xp. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    I've heard of of the 3G device having a lot of problems ( basically just being very inconsistent, but that it will eventually work ), or you can try to wait for sn0wbreeze, which should be out tomorrow.

    hello all,

    super new here, but i do have a question.
    i have a 3GS with 3.1 OUT OF THE BOX (it came with 3.1), didnt upgrade or anything, the only action i took with iTunes is enabled MMS on the 25th of September, i am with AT&T in the US.

    so.. Will this new solution work for my phone? Please point it out for me, and i promise not to create multiple threads asking the same question! =)

    hoping to jailbreak, and unlock (ideally) even though what i am seeing here it is not possible at this time.

    Big thanks!

    You can jailbreak with blackra1n, but not unlock.

    You can either upgrade to 3.1.2 or stay at 3.1 ( it won't matter ), and then run blackra1n. Welcome to jailbreaking 101
