    WARNING: I am not responsible for any issues or anything related to the matter of corrupting/messing up/destroying, or as i say, ****ing up your device!! Try this at your own risk!!

    This is the step-by-step of EXACTLY how i did my JB on my 3Gs and 2G:
    (It worked flawlessly on 5 other iphones to be exact)

    1-Create a folder on your desktop and name it blackra1n.

    2-DL 'blackra1n' from GeoHot and save it in the folder you created on your desktop.

    3-Restore your phone to factory settings, update your firmware to 3.1.2 via iTunes 9, and if you are asked to update settings, do so(mines did).

    4-Keep your phone connected to your computer at all times and keep itunes open (sounds like a dumb reminder, but i wouldnt remind if it hasnt happened).

    5-Click on the blackra1n file you saved in your blackra1n folder on your desktop(after opening, you may see a 'text' doc appear, dont delete, its just a log:o).

    6-Click 'Make it Ra1n'(Get ready to enjoy the show, your almost done).

    7-You will see a picture of GeoHot in a few moments meaning you are in JB recovery mode.

    8-blackra1n will install itself then your phone will reboot itself.

    9-Once your phone reboots, you will be JBed and you will see a blackra1n app on your phone.

    NOTE: It is recommended that you have a wi-fi connection for this next step but as long as you have a STRONG signal, you should be fine(I had a good signal and had no issues).

    10-Click on the blackra1n app on your iphone

    11-Then, DL Cydia and Rock and let them install themselves(When i DL'ed Icy, it messed up my phone everytime)

    12-If you reached this far...CONGRATULATIONS, you are JBen!! Just open Cydia and Rock, one at a time, and let them organize themselves and u will be ready to roll!!
    I had the same issues most everyone has been having in that after I clicked, "Make It Rain", I would not see GeoHot, instead I would see the Apple Logo with a USB cable indicating me to plug it into the computer.

    Anyways, per a previous post, I disabled most every Apple program running when I opened up the running processes. The exact quote from Faker was "killed all itunes related tasks except for applemobiledevicehelper.exe (kill itunes, ituneshelper, ipodservice, mdnsresponder)"

    After I did this, I was able to jailbreak using BlackRa1n with no issues on the first try. I hope this helps.

    well fellas I appreciate all the info but neither of these have worked for me, the "blackra1n" program says running and my phone stays on the sync/itunes screen.

    Ill keep trying....

    alright fellas well I just got it to work!

    This is what I did, once it failed i unplugged my phone. Restarted it, then plugged it back it and ran blackra1n. I didnt hit the home screen/power, just hit make it ra1n and let the program do its thing. It took less than 20 seconds from start to finish.
