blackra1n - jailbreak for iPod Touch and iPhone 3.1.2 is out for Mac OS X

The wait is quickly over. George has released blackra1n, the jailbreak tool for iPod Touch and iPhone firmware 3.1.2, for Mac OS X. It works exactly the same way as our guide for jailbreaking using blackra1n on Windows defined. There’s no word yet whether it supports the 3G 8GB iPod Touch as mentioned in our troubleshoot guide. Do let us know if it works for you in the comments below, and if you have issues don’t hesitate to ask. We’ll do our best to help you out!

Note: Do not try this if you want to keep using your unlocked iPhone, iPhone 3G or iPhone 3G S because it upgrades your baseband which will disable your unlock.

    Hi, i just downloaded blackr1n for mac and opened it and clicked “let it rain” and everything, but it goes into normal recovery mode and doesnt come out until i pull the sync cable out. Then i reboot it and everything is there BUT blackra1n. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Keshar Limbu

    I have tried blackra1n in my 8gb itouch many times. It doesn't work. After I install blackra1n everything goes as you described but at last my itouch goes dead. Nothing seems to bring it to life unless I restore the the factory setting. I tried pressing power button and home key for more than 30 seconds still no response.

    Thanks

    I just used Blackra1n (Mac) with my new iPod Touch 32 GB and it works fine. I wanted to use Demogod in order to teach folks how to use some apps in education so after research determined that the steps: Demogod/Cydia/Screensplitr was the way to go. Once I realized that George was serious about tethered and that whenever I turned off the iPod I would have to restore Apple settings and go through the process all over again, everything was fine. Hoping for an untethered version sometime in the future, but can live with what I've got — thanks.

    hi, will it work with an ipod touch 3g 64 GB? thanks.

  • will jailbreaking my itouch 3.1.2 allow me to use a bluetooth headset both mic and ear piece? If so, is there a specific headset I should buy that has a better success rate in connecting? I can’t find an answer in my searches… thank you.

  • Andrew Cumiskey

    I have the same problem as many people do I keep hitting the make it rain button and everything works great until it starts to reboot then it gets stuck on the connect to itunes picture and doesn’t do anything till i restore my ipod please help!

  • liltaz

    will it work with ipod touch 2 generation 16gig? with the newest 3.1.2 upgrade? its currently not modded in any way

  • I Jailbroke my ipod touch 2gen 16Gb a few weeks ago and had a few bugs like the speakers stopped working at one pouint which i fixed by just restarting my ipod however recently i tried to get to an internet page google.co.uk and it just exited safari and went back to the screen of apps, this was a small inconvinience so i ignored it but now when i try and get on to any site it says connecting and shows a spinning symbol but i wait and wait and it never loads (im talking 20 minutes for yahoo.com – never loaded) and since this new bug when i try and access itunes/app store on my ipod it says invalid argument so i cant use the app store however everything else seams normal however internet is important to me.

    Thanks for any help

    Yours thankfully Alex
