    Hi All

    Great that I found this thread, my 4th and 5th digits are 43 so I have to continue jailbreaking after every reboot. Good job Blackra1n is quick.

    i had the exact same problems with my 16gb 3gs. everytime i turned it off it would mess up and i would have to restore the darn thing. but now that i read this i wont try to jailbreak it again. It's a pain in the a** to having to put in all my contacts on my phone every time this happens. i hope the developers figure it out thought.Because once you've jailbroken your iphone/ipod, having that dull black theme just isnt the same lol.

    same thing happened to me, i thought i was the only one. i just bought my iphone a few days ago also. it sucks, once you've had custom themes with the jailbroken version phone, the stock iphone theme just feels so boring lol

    I don't understand why people get annoyed that blackra1n is a tethered JB for some people. I have never turned off my phone ever and if it ever starts to lag, I just "free memory" usuing SBSettings. I have JB a couple phones for friends that are on the new bootrom and I have told them not to let the battery run out or power down. It has been over a month and they are still going strong without me having to re-JB for them.

    Also, you shouldn't have to re-enter all your contacts. iTunes should back them up automatically and when you re-sync it should copy them back to your phone.

    Louie111887 just back your phone up through Itunes or sync through exchange with Gmail or Outlook .

    I successfully applied the blackra1n jailbreak to my phone (S/N 42) the other day and I am fully aware of the tethering issue. I don't plan on turning the thing off or having the battery die, however I just want to be sure I know exactly what to do should that happen. My question is this: Say I turn off the phone, or the battery dies. When I reach a computer with blackra1n on it, is this the correct process?
    1. Plug in phone to computer
    1a. Should I power on the phone at this point, or leave it off?
    2. Run blackra1n.exe
    3. Allow blackra1n to re-jailbreak, then let phone charge or turn back on.

    I know that blackra1n creates a backup of your phone before applying the jailbreak. So am I correct in assuming that no data will be lost when re-applying the jailbreak? Also, should the phone restart itself (say some app causes it) and I am not near a computer, my iphone will resort to the esb>itunes screen. When I return to a computer, can I just connect it and run blackra1n, or will the iphone need to be restored first, then re-jailbroken.

    Sorry for all the Q's, I'm jsut trying to learn as much as possible so I can deal with any issues should they arise, or simply avoid them altogether.

    Green,

    Great questions. I am am reading and reading trying to find as many answers as I can without making posts that will bring down the "do your research!" responses.

    I hope someone will answer you because I too would like these answers. I have yet to JB my phone. I have alot of 'stupid' questions like...
    Can I use my old Apple App store apps?
    can I get apps from the App store that are free with a JB iphone? Or do I have to avoid the App store and use only cydia?


    Will syncing my JB with Itunes de-JB me?

    My serial number 4th and 5th is 39. 3.1.2 (7D11)

    I await someones answering of your questions Green and I thank you for asking them.

    Yes, you can use your old AppStore Apps, they will still all be there after you jailbreak. The AppStore still functions exactly the same for getting free or paid for apps. There is no change.
    Syncing will not undo the jailbreak, and syncing your apps will not remove any of them. In iTunes it simply doesn't recognize those apps (via Cydia/Rock) and therefore does not back them up. There are programs and methods to backing up your JB apps as well.
    Also, I believe that since your S/N is 39, you can probably don't need to be tethered for the jailbreak, but someone else should chime in on that (for S/N 40 and above, you have to be tethered when doing a restart of the phone, or when it powers down completely)

    There is no non-tethered jailbreak for new 3GS phones at this point.

    I was actually wondering about the need to balckra1n the iphone older than week 40 everytime we shut it off or the battery goes dead. Mine still has the itunes USB screen whenever that happens!

    THXS!

    I am suffering from the same issue, if I had know this would happen I would not have jail broken it. I've tried restoring it back to factory settings but I always get a 1602 error.

    Any ideas to restore it back to factory settings after blackra1n?

    Not sure how you were trying to do it before, twisteRRR, but the next time you reset it and you get the iTunes plug screen, click ok to restore. Or just plug it in and click the button that says Restore in iTunes any time your phone is plugged in.

    Try restoring in DFU mode. You can Google it.

    I did some googling and figured out how to get to DFU. Once I am in DFU mode, my iTunes doesn't recognize the iPhone and therefore cannot restore.
    01-05-2010 03:10 AM
  25. twisteRRR's Avatar
    Actually the phone won't let me get into DFU mode, I followed the instructions exactly and after holding power and home for 10 seconds, then letting go of power WHILE still holding home, the screen turns black and then quickly restarts, showing the apple logo and then the USB cable ---> iTunes screen. (recovery mode)

    This is very frustrating and all I want to do is restore my iPhone back to how it was. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
