    HI
    I HAVE A 3G IPHONE and all specifications are correct with what is required to jailbreak the phone. the phone is unlocked and im on orange.

    when i run Blackra1n from my pc i get to the screen that says complete if this was the easiest etc and the iphone reeboots.

    my problem is the blackrain icon does not apear on my iphone .

    my iphone is already unlocked to networks what do i need to do please.

    oh on my springboard next to App store there is a blank square but i have installed some apps that go onto page two leaving the square blank?

    itunes also states phone is in recovery modeyou must restore this iphone before it can be used with itunes and blackra1n wait for reeboot stays on desktop

    What firmware do you have? 3.1.2 or 3.1.3? The latter cannot (yet) be jailbroken.

    Also, when you jailbreak, make sure to shut down iTunes.

    i have 3.1.2 firmware on my phone i have tried several times . my iphone is also currently unlocked so it allows me to use orange sim which is in.

    I have run blackra1n with itunes off and the box that says done wait for reeboot is greyed out but still on my desktop. im running win7 and have tried with xp compat mode also.

    I have thought of re setting my iphone but dont fancy having it locked to o2

    please help as i dont fancy doing this should i try it with an 02 sim in the phone?

    are you running windows or mac? I would say download the blackra1n executable again. When you are ready to do it put the phone into airplane mode and make sure iTunes is not running before you run blackra1n.

    YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER US, DAMMIT!

    What OS are you on?!? And also, you're not 'officially' unlocked if the guy who sold it to you is the one who unlocked it.

    The cell company is the only one who can officially unlock it.

    Yes, but I thought they were unlocking phones that had been purchased for X amount of time? That's why I was asking. You have to call the carrier and within a week or so they send you a text with instructions or something along those lines.

    He said he's on Win7, just hard to see with no caps or general punctuation lol.

    Well, that negates any troublehooting I was going to offer.

    If he's still on Windows, still on 3.1.2, then there's no real reason why blackra1n shouldn't be working.

    Would it be too selfish to ask for more details?

    I have a feeling it is already jailbroken and that's how it was unlocked as well. Just a guess though.

    Do you have Cydia on your iPhone? If so then it was probably unlocked and jailbroken with something other than Blackra1n.
