    I'm running a 8 gig 3G. It def works. Took a few tries. Got stuck at the itunes USB cable screen. Just keep resetting. It will eventually work. took me under 10 tries.

    I managed to get my 3G done- FINALLY! Did a little trouble-shooting thanks to this walkthrough. I put my phone in Airplane mode, and made sure blackra1n was on my C: drive. At first it seemed stuck in "entering recovery" mode, so I exited blackra1n (after about a minute) but didn't touch my phone. Then I immediately launched blackra1n again, clicked "make it rain" and *poof*... worked perfectly. Weird.

    Okay ppl, will try to explain problems im having and what ive tried so far

    in my household, we have 2x ipod touch 2g 8gb, one is my partners and is on firmware 2.2.1 - jailbreak done on that and working fine (cant remember the tool i used but it was call quickpwn or something similar)

    i have the same model etc but on firmware 3.2.1, have been trying to jailbreak using blackra1n as cant see any other method at moment

    have followed instruction on multiple sites inc in the forums here and always encounter same problem

    i have tried this on both winxp and winvista machines using itunes9

    restored to apple's default 3.2.1 firmware through itunes, then closed itunes and ran the blackra1n app from the blackra1n site, the jailbreak works fine and installs the blackra1n app

    im then able to install cydia etc and from there it works just like my partners ipod touch (on firmware 2.2.1)

    but if i hold power button down and switch my ipod touch off, as soon as switch back on i get the USB > itunes screen and when plug into pc - itunes auto loads and i am asked to restore as detected ipod in recovery mode

    i have tried this around 10 times now and always get the same thing - anybody else experienced same issues and if so, have you managed to resolve them.

    any help is much appreciated !!

    What do you do when it goes into this mode? I had that happen once on my 3Gs and I forced a reboot and it never came back again.

    Im not sure what you mean by 'force a reboot' but ive tried everything and still get the USB > Itunes screen unless i jailbreak again with blackra1n (not very convenient) or restore using itunes (and loose the jailbreak altogether)

    VOODOO,

    Your newer iPod Touch has the new bootrom that is not exploitable to be able to re-jailbreak without being attached to a computer and having Blackra1n run again. There is no getting around this right now.

    I am having the same problem. zyberblue? When did you purchase your ipod? I had an 8gig 3g iphone and used blackrain with no problem. I just purchased 3gs a few days ago and now I am having this problem. I am wondering if the newer phones and ipods sold are programed to block blackrain. Just a thought because I have been reading many people in different forums having this same issue within the past few days... Anyone have any ideas as to what is going on? I have to restore to everytime.

    nooo...the newer iPhones have to do a tethered JB meaning whenever u reboot and/ or power off your phone for any reason then u have to run blackra1n on your desktop to get your JB back...its actually not as bad as it sounds..gd luck

    When that happens, just ignore iTunes for a minute and run Blackra1n again. Then you'll be able to sync.

    just upgraded from 3g to 3gs. Blackrain worked perfectly on my 3g. I jailbreaked my 3gs with success but with one very annoying flaw. Everytime i turn off my phone a usb cord and itunes icon appears on my screen. I tried holding both the power and home button until the apple sign comes on but to no avail. the first time this happened i connected to itunes and it asked me to restore my phone. which i did. it was very long and annoying. i rehacked my phone successfully until i turned it off again and the same issue occured. Anytime i reboot or shutdown my phone this always happens. Ive hacked many other phones for my friends and this hasnt happened to them. any ideas guy???
