    I have recently bought an iPhone off ebay.
    The iPhone is a 2G 8GB, Never been jailbroken before.
    The iPhone was updated to the 3.1.2 through iTunes as soon as I got it.

    I downloaded blackra1n.

    At first I moved it onto my desktop, blackra1n.exe that is and plugged in my iphone and tried it using an online tutorial.
    it ended up in a black screen and never rebooted, so I shut it off and redid it.

    So then I read there might be problems launching blackra1n from the desktop, and told me to put it in c//: drive and i did, tried it, and ended up in the same result; a black screen.

    So I went to look for blackra1n troubleshootings first, which told me to NOT have itunes open, and end itunes.exe , ituneshelper.exe proccess's through ctrl+alt+delete or task manager.

    I did all of this, made sure itunes and any of the process's were closed.
    Tried it again with blackra1n in the c/:drive

    and STILL a friggin black screen >.>


    From the home screen, it turns to an apple icon with a black background, then to the usb cord with itunes, then just a simple black screen, but still lit.
    I have never reached the geohot image yet

    So any help?
    If you need any more info just tell me.

    I'm pretty sure BlackRa1n is only for 3G and 3GS.
