    I downloaded black rain. I clicked Make it rain and everything went as it was supposed to. Though, now my phone just has the images connect to itunes. My itunes will pop up and say i need to restore this phone to activate and what not. Why didn't this work like it was supposed to. Did i do something wrong? someone who knows about this please answer me. ASAP

    Try this out...

    1) Hold down the power and home buttons to reboot the phone. Continue to hold them down until the phone comes back on.

    Once you do this, it should bring your phone back on and working, but probably not jailbroken...to get it to jailbreak, try this...

    2) Before reconnecting your iphone to your mac/pc, put your iphone into airplane mode.
    3) Reconnect it to your mac/pc
    4) click Make it Rain

    If you see the pic of geohotz you know your phone is being jailbroken and it will restart upon completion. Once it restarts you will have an icon called BlackRa1n that you will use to install cydia and rock apps...

    Hopefully this helps as it worked for me when I had your issue!

    My phone did that the very first time I tried to jailbreak it. I just restored it, and tried jailbreaking it again, and then it went through just fine. It can be finicky, my roommates ipod touch I had to try a couple of times, and restart the computer and try compatibility modes. It worked eventually though.
