    So, I just picked up my 3gs 16g running updated to 3.1.2 and have been looking into jailbreaking but haven't made up my mind yet... If I do decide to jailbreak, I can just follow the instructions above...

    But if I do jailbreak, everytime I power down my iPhone, I'll need to have my laptop around to restart my phone?

    Yes that may or may not be the case there's no way to tell besides trying, I have a 3GS but since it has the older boot rom I don't have to boot up with my comp. Most people don't turn there phones of anyway. Sooner or later they will crack the new bootrom and you can do an untethered jailbreak. It really dpends on the stores stock.

    Your welcome, I strongly reccomend you jailbreak. So many great features, have you ever jailbroken before? You can have themes, run apps in the backround, categories, tether with any device, reply to SMS in apps, the possibiltys are endless.

    This would be my first jailbreak, which is where the nerves come from. I'm mostly interested in it for running apps In the background, and tethering, but since I'll have opened up the option, I'll take customizing the looks with new themes as a nice bonus.

    If your intrested in backrounding apps get mquickdo it's awesome. If you don't like being jailbroken you can alway restore. Also if your going to be tethering I reccomend mywi.

    this is a great and fast jailbreak.

    and this also happened to be my first jailbreak attempt. had no major issues besides wifi not working but a quick network restart fixed that problem. all in all this is the fastest and simplest jailbreak

    I'm having troubles jailbreaking my phone. I had it jailbroken and unlocked previously with redsn0w and ultrasn0w on 3.0. I backed up all my stuff and did a factory restore on it, then tried the jailbreak. Every time I try to jailbreak it, it goes into recovery and then the screen goes blank, I never see the screen with geohot on it, but the jailbroken successful screen pops up and tells me the whole thing about it being done. Then it just sits there and I have to hold down the top button to get it to restart and it restarts just like normal and is not jailbroken. It's driving me crazy. Thanks for any help.

    Hi there,

    thanks a lot for the tutorial but i still have a question which answer it seems i can not find everyone here is speaking for 3.1.2 but mine is iPhone 3GS bought with version 3.1 (out of box) factory unlocked modem firmware 05.11.07. Yes my 4th and 5th digits are 4 and 5 and i know that i will have to keep it switched on, but my main question is do i have to update to 3.1.2 and then jailbreak it with this, or i can go on and jailbreak it on the version 3.1 (originaly bought with).

    I will really appreciate if someone answers, since there are a lot of different opinions which after days of reading confused me to death

    Thanks a lot

    Just check the manufature date on the back of the phone it's the 4th and 5th digits that represent the week the phone was put together , they need to be below 40.

    Im confused how did you get a factory unlocked phone ? And if your modem firmware is 05.11.07 then you are already @ 3.1.2 so you can use blackrain to JB . I dont know if this will affect your Factory unlock tho .

    Ok... I made it rain, it finally reboots, and there is no rain program icon. I also never see Geo's face, just the spinning dial. What am I doing wrong?? I'm on the right 3.1.2 update.

    Hi, this is very very simple, just backup your iPhone in iTunes and click restore on the summary tab of your iPhone.

    Yes you must update to the latest firmware to run blackra1n.

    To everyone not seeing the image or successfully jailbreaking
    I recommend you do a full restore and update to the latest firmware in iTunes then try blackra1n, also make sure iTunes Service.exe is running in the task manager, to do this I'd assume you'd open iTunes. Thanks.

    I have tried several times but all I seem to get is the entering recovery on the blackra1n window and the iPhone sits there with the USB/iTunes screen, any ideas?

    Hi, you say that i have to update to 3.1.2 my factory unlocked iphone with 3.1 to do a jailbreak, but will this affect my unlock. (for example become locked) might sound stupid but just to make sure
    12-07-2009 04:03 AM
  17. darksniper404's Avatar
    Yes it will become unlocked but then you'll unlock it again with blackra1n. Make sure though to select sn0w along with cydia if you want to unlock.
