Ok, um, I did the whole jailbreak thing but the blackra1n app is still open and says done, wait for reboot. My iPod is on but there's no blackra1n icon yet. What's with that?

will it work for a iPhone 4s

This will not work for any Idevice after the second gen iPhone but for those that want to jailbreak a ios 6.0 - 6.1.2 Idevice you can use evasi0n by the evaders. It's is really simple and it is UNTETHERED which means that if the battery dies you won't have to reboot with evasi0n Hope it helps :)

I cannot run Blackweather, the computer says: the application has failed to start because ASL.Dll is not found. why does it happen?
ahmad - November 30, 2012 at 8:21am
you need to copy it to c:/programs files/common files/Apple/apple application support and run it from there

Can someonehelp, I'm really new to all this. My iPhone is the best thing since pants with pockets here, but I am not eactly sure what a jailbreak is. I mean I have a 3g 16 n the 8g do I wanna jailbreak it Att is my wireless company. What will doing this allow me to do with this phone that I can't already?? Does it not reaquiere me a carriers? Please help me! - old skool. Thanks!!!
carlos - April 14, 2010 at 12:45am
Jailbreak, allows you to download and install unlimited free applications through cydia instead of using itunes, you can changue the initial screen on your iphone, wallpapers, anything you want to do. Jailbreak does not mean unlocked so you only can use your phone with your actual carrier, once the phone is jailbroken it can be unlocked to use it with any carrier.

Guys help me out here. I used blackra1n to jailbreak my 3GS 3.1.2 device . It was fine till I reached the springboard. The wireless was not working properly. I uninstalled blackra1n but after reinstalling it I can't get the icon anymore. I can't restore the Iphone coz the latest update is 3.1.3 and blackra1n won't work with it. Can anyone help me?

xRome - February 11, 2010 at 10:16pm
hey all i am REALLY confused and need some help here. I have purchased a brand new still sealed in the box iPhone 2G and need to unlock it for Tmobile. But ALL the unlocks I have found that work with the newer firmware (blackra1n, redsn0w) require me to update to 3.1.2 before running the jailbreak. How is it possible for me to update to 3.1.2 when I can't even activate my phone, because I am not going on AT&T! I can't find the answer to this anywhere, please help!!!! Can i just take my iPhone 2G out of its original box and use blackra1n right away? Do I start blackrain with my tmobile SIM in, or no SIM?

after reading the comments a couple of times, blackra1n rc3 worked on my iphone 3g 3.1.2 version. with the help of this forum and this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8UYSfPEKnQ. What i did: started itunes, plugged the mobile in. closed itunes and stopped the itunes drivers in device manager. Moved blackra1n.exe to the c root. executed this file. then did the thing that the guy did in the above youtube link. And it was jailbreaked in a minute or so! After that there was no gps, i fixed it with a network reset. got everything working! thanks everybody for the help and posting!!

I have done the steps above then only realise for the youtube solution. So, is there anyway i can still fix the Blackra1n Jailbreak problem when my battery goes off? Thanks..
Person - January 15, 2010 at 4:41pm
I tried this and I got all the way up until it said Done, Waiting for Reboot and my iPod Touch never rebooted. (Running 3.12) What should I do?
tyler - January 17, 2010 at 11:46pm
hey, to answer your question.. try plugging the ipod/iphone into your computer then go to blackra1n.com and run the file for windows (or mac if u have an apple computer) hit run and then "make it ra1n" again. once that happens the jailbreak screen should pop up.. wait about 30 seconds and then your device should be at the lockscreen. then go 2 the blackra1n app and get CYDIA!! do not get ROCK.. this time cydia should be there and also make sure you have a wifi connection...if it doesnt work then "make it ra1n" again. i hope i answered your question :)
Lorda - January 15, 2010 at 12:22pm

Hello, My iPhone 3G was version 3.0.1 jailbroken, I upgraded to 3.2.1, then used this jailbreak, first I didn't get geo's picture while jailbreaking, and it didn't reboot, so i turned it off, and turned it on again, after this my iphone was unjailbroken, and all cydia apps are gone, and most of the normal apps i downloaded doesn't work, i click one of them it tries to enter but gets out immideately. any suggestions? will I lose my apps if i do restore then try again? Help please
tyler - January 17, 2010 at 11:52pm
yes restore it. then go to itunes and resync all your stuff back to your phone. after that, make it rain again. when you try to get cydia it says you mudt reboot after the download, do it. if it doesnt let u in the phone, make it rain again..

Does this work on iPhone 2G. or is there any way to jailbreak iPhone 2G to firmware 3...Now I use firmware 2.1. Thanks so much. iClarified rocks!!!
Paul - January 4, 2010 at 11:17am
I have a jail broken and unlocked iPhone 3GS with software version 3.0.1 (7A 400) and baseband software 04.2 6.08. I wish to update to the latest software version 3.2.1. My question is what is the best way to do this? The Dev Team suggests you keep the same modem firmware when upgrading to the latest software. From their blog:- "Those of you who are already unlocked at 3.1.2 because you kept your 04.26 baseband now have an extra cushion of comfort, and more choices: ultrasn0w, purplesn0w, and now blacksn0w (and of course the original yellowsn0w too if you’re still back at FW 2.x). Whether or not you choose to update your baseband solely to use the new unlock is a personal choice, but so far there are no advantages to doing so (and remember you can’t come back to 04.26 after you’ve gone to 05.11)." Could somebody please let me know how to do this on an already unlocked phone and keep the 04.26 baseband? Alternatevly if I just use Black ra1n do I "restore" and then "upgrade" or just "upgrrade" from within iTunes? I am getting confused by all different colours of snow/rain!! Is there a table showing what to use where? I have a Canadian phone but am currently I am in Mexico using a Telcel sim card and need to be able to switch between the countries. Thanks

you need aps sync. to bypass itune to be able to install cracked games. on cydia go to search and search for Aps. Sync.. 3.XX.. install the Aps sync. via cydia.. then you ready to install cracked game thru. itune...
