    Try running BlackRain from your C: drive but this time right click on it and choose "run as administrator." Switch your iPhone to airplane mode. This is what worked for me.

    Alrite now... if you have all that I asked for then you should be fine with running Blackra1n to jailbreak.

    Here is the Blackra1n program tutorial. Follow this:
    Jailbreak iphone 3.1.2 with blackra1n | TechnoBuzz.net

    If it still doesn't work then check this out:


    I recommend you to get Blackra1n from the link above... Then when your ready to jailbreak then open up Blackra1n. Plug your iPhone in and close off iTunes and then hit the Make It Ra1n Button. First watch that video above.

    Gud luck and make it Ra1n!

    Did you put your phone in Airplane mode? For me, that was the missing link.

    It's obvious that BlackRa1n is a very buggy jailbreak app. What worked for you won't necessarily work for others. All avenues should be explored.

    It took me about 10 attempts before it worked. It would go into DFU mode each time, but it would be the normal one, not the one with Geohot's pic. I would disconnect, reboot and try again. After about 10 tries, it worked according to the instructions.
