This is a good one for you all (hopefully someone can help me). So my iPhone has been dead for months. Bought it abroad unlocked and jailbroken. I installed 3.1 by accident directly from iTunes and it died (got nothing but the itunes icon and usb cable image). I used blackra1n and now I have an overpriced iPod Touch! It is better than nothing and I am very thankful but I cannot unlock the iPhone since the blackra1n icon does not appear on my desktop. Finally I get passed that screen and somethings work but I'd like my phone back. Does anyone know what I could do? Help will be greatly appreciated. (by the way, I have a mac and when I used blackra1n "iTunes could not connect to this iPhone because an unknown error occurred OXE8000065") Thanks in advance!

Possible solution to GPS, WiFi, Youtube problems. What I did is, I put my original O2 SIM card and restored my iPhone 3GS with iTunes to factory settings. Then I jailbreaked wih BlackRa1n (still with O2 SIM) and unlocked with BlackSn0w. i checked to see if all is working - YES. After that i just replaced the SIM with "unsupported" SIM that I use. All is working: WiFi, GPS and Youtube without any problem. Hope this helps.

Man if you know can you help me too. I have been looking online for any post, but I guess the 3G 3.1.2 can send but not receive MMS. There is a fix for the 2G but I dont see anything for the 3G

My brand new 3GS, 3.1.2, doesn't reboot and stays on recovery mode at the end of the process, even if blackra1n says that the jailbreak is done. Is it because of the new boot rom iBoot-359.3.2?

Same issue for me. Running Hong Kong version of the iPhone 3GS (official, factory unlocked). My iPhone wasn't booting properly, so I launched it in DFU mode, then started blackra1n. Blackrain says it worked properly, but has been stuck on the shutdown screen for 10 minutes now with the hourglass continuously spinning.

Solved! Just use the new version of Blackra1n.

Try this, it might work for you, it did work for me and managed to JB the iPhone 3G with no problems. And after fiddling with it many times. Switch off your phone. Get iTunes started. Have black rain application running Plug in phone to PC Switch on phone While phone is booting up And just when you notice that itunes is dedecting your phone click on make it rain. Worked for me, can try it if you wanna

Lol you guys you do know a notepad file comes with the download. It might tell you what went wrong. Oh and it is the fastest jailbreak ever and you also have to have iTunes open when you do it
