GUIDE: Jailbreak iPhone 3G and iPhone 3.1.2 firmware 3GS with Blackra1n for Windows

Upgrade iPhone to 3.1.2 via iTnunes if not already updated.

If you do not have the firmware can be downloaded from here:

Download iPhone 3GS 3.1.2

Download iPhone 3G 3.1.2

Requirements:
Blackra1n for Windows download directly from the official site by clicking here and then the Apple logo.
Connect the device to your computer via USB (to be turned on) and close iTunes.

Guide:


1. Click on the icon of Blackra1n to start the application. A small window with a single button “Make it ra1n”

2. Click that button, and you’ll notice the words “Entering Recovery”. In those seconds, the program will launch a completely automated process that will put the iPhone / iPod in recovery mode and then run the Jailbreak and install the application on the device Blackra1n.

3. IPhone GeoHot image will appear full screen on Mac and meanwhile you will notice this in writing:

4. The Jailbreak has been completed and was successful. Wait those 20 seconds it took to restart the phone and when you are on the SpringBoard will not have to do is launch Blackra1n through the appropriate icon, and download Cydia.

End! You can enjoy your device updated, unlocked and jailbroken with the latest available firmware and Cydia. The whole process, even counting the time for a restart of the device, takes about 30 seconds!

Restore backup or set up as new iPhone?
We do not recommend backup restore through iTunes if these were made by a firmware 3.0.x. A substantial firmware update results in significant changes that often a backup can change, compromising the proper functioning of the device. It ‘always advisable to configure your phone as a new device .. up to run a manual backup (via SSH) only for SMS. For the address book, mail, bookmarks, applications, music and photos, to do a new sync with iTunes. For applications Cydia, reinstall only those necessary.

Wasif says:

Guys,

I used to jail break my Iphone often using the Blackra1n Because of the fact that whenever I switch off my iphone and switch back on it goes to the connect to itunes thing and then i have to use blackra1n again. This wasn’t a problem at all. Connecting to the computer and run blackra1n and jobs done.
But today accidently my phone switched off at work. It asked me again for the itunes. I thought anyway i will do it at home.
I did everything now but the iphone is only showing the geohot (kid pic) and not doing anything. I waited for 15 mins and its stuck
Can anymore help me please

Regards,

Wasif

pablo says:

hi
i have an iphone 3gs bb 05.11.07 jailbroken with blackra1n on 3.1.2 . i am very interested in upgrading to 4.0.

it is sort of frustrating to look everywhere for a guide to upgrading blackrain 3.1.2 fw, to blackrain 4.0.x or higher, if there is such a thing. it is so ‘simple’ to make it rain. are there any solutions to this problem that you could post on your page for us to read and use. i will be quite grateful if there is one way to work this out. so far all i have read in articles is that things stop working and that others are begging for answers to their problem. i have not upgraded because of it. do you have a solution? or could you point me in the right direction? merry xmas to all
thanks
