Hello. I have been trying to jailbreak my american iPhone 3gs for the last 48 hours. I never get the Blackra1n icon on the phone. I have tried restoring it, rebooting, switching computers and praying. Nothing seems to work.. I am on an Intel Core 2 Duo iMac with iTunes v. 8.2.1. If anybody has any suggestions or solutions you will make me a very happy man!!!!

Is there latest development to overcome the problem of rebooting iphone with blackra1n..

Anyone knows why every time the iPhone reboots enters on recovery mode? The iPhone is already jailbroked and unlocked with blackra1n and blacksn0w. When this happens I have to connect the iPhone to the computer and start blackra1n again and then works fine.

Succeded first unlocking my iphone 3GS 16GB. Then I got the famous problem of wi-fi not working. Tried to restart the iphone which did not work unless I conneced it to the cable. But no wi-fi. Restarted it again but now the iphone has hanged. Had not removed the Blackra1n yet so what I see now is a picture of geohot. Can not even close it. Can not turn it off completely. And when I connect it with the cable to the computer, it is not being read by the computer and gives the message that the device I have connected cant be recogonised. Now I am sitting with an unlocked \"locked\" iPhone and do not know what to do. Is there anyone who can help me?

Greetings, I had a few questions which i hope someone here could kindly answer. 1. If I successfully JB and unlock my phone how do I got about installing apps, do I still use iTunes? 2. Are there issues with turning the phone off with this Jailbreak, once the battery goes flat I\'ve read about having to connect and reboot? 3. I have ungraded my 3GS to 3.1.2 and 5.11.07 firmware and I\'m on a Vodafone (Australia) account, is BlackSnow the best option? Cheers
