    Blackrain works great for me, installing Cydia works well too. But every time I download a package from Cydia, I get the white apple of death. Its happened 5 times in a row the last 2 days. What the hell is going on? I cant keep restoring my phone every day. Does anyone know what is making this happen? Im using OS 3.1.2 and I have a Mac.

    This kid will do well working for MS. He worked hard to be the first. Didn't care if it was buggier than a Louisiana night sky, the users will test and he can worry about a fix (much) later. Same thinking as the jackasses who post nothing but "first" on every thread.

    I learned my lesson. From now on I'll wait the extra day or two for DevTeam's release.

    If i upgraded to 3.1.2 and then did the RC2 of blackra1n, its jailbroken and NOT unlocked, correct?

    yes jail breaking is the ability to add 3 party apps to the iPhone ie winter board...Unlocking lets you use your phone with t mobile or other gsm carriers..

    Nope, I just got the phone from the APPL store and followed these instructions, the phone always reboots to recovery mode. Hook up to ITunes always updates to 3.1.2.
    I have tried this 4 times. I have to give up.
    I only had to get a new phone cause the old one did not work. Now all my stuff is gone and all the cool Jailbreak stuff is gone with it.

    Are you saying that the screen is black? If so it is probably in recovery, Just let iTunes restore it, and all will be well, no jailbreak, but well.

    I finally got RC2 to jailbreak my 3GS this weekend. Thank God I got my 3GS-32 before Apple updated the ROM.

    Initially, I couldn't get RC2 working on my Vista 32-bit Laptop. Phone would get stuck in Recovery/DFU mode. I ended up Restoring twice thinking I had to start all over.

    RC2 finally did work on my Vista 64-bit Desktop, after I shut three Services down in Task Manager (iTunes/iPod/Bonjour), and set blackra1n.exe as a normal executable (note: not in WinXP SP1 compatible mode as recommended...go figure). Shortly after clicking the "Make it Rain" button (with my iPhone still showing the Recover/DFU screen)...bam it worked. Geohot's image came up on the screen and about 2 minutes later I was running a jailbroken phone.

    It took me over 4 hours due to numerous reboots, Recovery restores, and trying on two computers. But, it was well worth it. My iPhone has never had more utility as now. I've got working folders (Categories, CategoriesSB), rotating wallpaper (BossPaper, BossPaper Landscapes), Themes (Winterboard), etc.

    This was my first Jailbreak experience, and it was well worth the time. I can't believe I spent most of my weekend installing/buying software through Cydia. My thanks to all. Awesome!

    I have upgraded my 3GS to 3.1.4 through iTunes, and I am trying to jailbreak my iphone with Blackra1n RC2 but no success. I can see the guy's pic in my iphone but after the reboot it shows the old locked screen. BTW, I am trying it on my laptop having Windows 7 (32-bit).

    Can anyone please suggest what is going wrong?

    Bundle of thanks in advance.

    Ik heb dit ook steeds als ik hem echt uit zet dan staat hij weer in die vervelende Recover/DFU screen dan run ik blackra1n maar weer en dan gaat het goed tot hij weer zonder stroom is geweest of echt wordt uigezet

    Absolutely the easiest jailbreak and unlock. Both processes took a max of 3 seconds the pair. 3G 3.1.2. I have background processes running so I'm able to use one app while another is updating, I have some excellent apps through Cydia. I have a a sim provided by my work that I'm able to use for voice calls all in all I'm a very happy iPhone user.
