        • Dakota

          I tried that Stace, and then it just got stuck on the waiting for ipod screen, and now my ipod is stuck on the screen where it says plug in to itunes and I can’t restore.

        • Dakota

          Actually now I can get it all done but it says all done wait for reboot and I wait but nothing happens, and i reboot manually by pressing home and lock button for 20 secs and it restarts like regular. I just can’t get the black ra1n app onto ipod..

          • johnny

            how did you get it off the plug into itunes screen?? im stuck there

      • Terrell

        i figured out a way to get past that restore screen all u have to do is go to black ra1n and jailbreak from there and wat the jailbreak will do is hack that and just jailbreak it

    • jp

      My i just ran the balick ra1n and it worked and everyhting but now my ipod won’t turn bakc on and it wonrt even show up on itunes any suggestions on what to do??

      • bentom

        go on itunes and click restore and if the ipod turns back on click uninstall

        • kristen

          but if you do restore it in itunes, doesn’t that erase all your apps and everything on the ipod?

      • 1212

        i think you have to plug your itouch in to itunes and click some button.
        theres videos about it on youtube.

      • eric wheeler

        that happenend to mine to

    • keegan

      blackra1n dont work it just erased everything and didnt work

      • Dakota

        restore your ipod.

      • Eric

        It worked on mine. and i also have 7 pages of apps and didn’t erase any of them.

  • Trakoi

    Hi, I am locked on to a network operator and I dont want it to get unlocked. So is it possible to use this jailbreak onto an iphone 3gs without unlocking? Thanx.

  • You should wait until there is an unlock available for the iPhone 3GS firmware 3.1.2.

  • Which device and firmware version are you using?

  • Trakoi

    I am using the firmware 3.1 for the Iphone 3GS. Thanx for the advice.

    • captain95

      i have the same as you iphone 3gs 3.1 and jailbroken with blackra1n and it works very well so just jailbreak it!!!!!

  • Trakoi

    Iphone 3GS with firmware 3.1.

  • ricky

    same here am using 3.1.2 on my ipod help!!!!!

  • Try the process again. Are you able to boot your iPod ? Do a recover using iTunes and try again.

  • If you are already using 3.1.2, just connect your iPod, run the blackra1n app and let it do its work. It should work smoothly. I jailbroke my iPod Touch in the first go with blackra1n. You don't need purplera1n for this.

    • Chase

      is there a virus on blackra1n

  • Trakoi

    Reading other forums I have read that u need to have some tool called pwnage tool/redsnow to unlock those firmwares on 3.1.2 but its not released yet. I have got the firmware 3.0.1 and I am wondering whether I have to use this blackra1n hack.

  • If you want to unlock your iPhone, you should use Ultrasnow. But it won't work if you upgrade to 3.1.2 firmware and could cause issues down the road when unlocking since the baseband would be upgraded. You should wait for an updated version of Ultrasnow.

  • CK

    my screen just went black after reboot…
    and nothing is happening…

    • Jess

      Hi
      same happened to me! now all that comes up is the apple symbol
      i can’t even use my iphone!
      I downloaded blackra1n then cydia and through cydia downloaded blacksnow to unlock my original iphone and it went black but hasnt rebooted and its been 48 hours!
      any advice??

  • ricky

    doing a recovery going to try again

  • You'll have to wait for an unlock tool because currently none works with iPhone firmware 3.1.2

  • Hold both the power and home screen buttons to boot it.

  • ricky

    holding home and power wont reboot

  • bob

    thx man

  • CK

    I did reboot the touch but still dont work….
    Something is not right…..

  • Trakoi

    Ok can u like give me step by step instructions as im using 3.1 firmware which came pre-installed instead of 3.1.2. Should I use pwnage tool/redsnow/ultrasnow first? Or should I go straight to activating the Blackra1n app? Thanx.

  • michaelchambers

    Doesn't work here. After the “Enjoy your jailbroken iphone” message, it keeps waiting for reboot. I manually reboot it but still doesn't work. iPod Touch 1G here. Any solution?

  • Nico

    try

  • Trakoi

    THIS HACK WILL JAILBREAK YOUR iPHONE ON THE OS 3.X.X – MEANING 3.1.2, 3.1 etc. etc…

    NO UNLOCK AVAILABLE UNTIL NOW ONCE YOU'VE UPDATED TO 3.1 / 3.1.2 USING ITUNES!!!!!!!!!!

    WHICH MEANS DO NOT UPDATE THE OFFICIAL FIRMWARE VIA ITUNES ONCE HACKED.

    IF HACKED IT MIGHT UPDATE YOUR BASEBAND AND YOU CANNOT UNLOCK IT IN THE FUTURE.

  • That upgrade is for iPod Touch. Do not upgrade is for iPhone users.

  • Itunes shouldn't be running when with blackra1n running. You should try restoring your ipod touch firmware to the default 3.1.2 without running blackra1n and then try the jailbreak again.

  • Try a restore via iTunes and repeat the process again.

  • It should work because according to George who created this tool, it works for all the iPhone and iPod Touch devices. Let me know how it goes for you.

  • No, you won't lose any apps, music or videos.

    • josh

      i try putting a theme on my ipod touch with cydia and a blackra1n jailbreak and it tells me to reboot and i did and it went to the connect to itunes thingy how do i get it to work?

  • It should work. But why not upgrade to the latest one i.e. 3.1.2 and then jailbreak?

  • Some people have been reporting this issue. You could try restoring the firmware and try blackra1n again. It worked for me in the first try while I wrote this guide. I had wi-fi disabled by the way.

  • josh

    been waiting 25mins for my itouch 3rd gen, blackra1n is still entering recovery, how long should i wait or do i try again

    • Benjamin

      I am having this same issue… did you ever get it working?

  • That is too long. Try again.

  • Yatin

    I did receive a message saying that my ipod touch has been jailbroken but I don't see any new icons on my screen? I am using ipod touch 2nd generation firmware 3.1.2. Please help.

  • Clifton

    How long should this take? It's been stuck at the entering recovery mode for about 1 1/2 hours now…

  • It took around a minute or 2 on my iPod Touch 2G.

  • You should try doing a restore and then jailbreak again. That sometimes helps.

  • Yatin

    Do I need to be connected to the Internet via wi-fi?

  • I don't think so. I did it without connected via wi-fi I think.

  • Erik

    One more question, is it possible to “unjailbreak”?

  • Yatin

    I restored the touch and ran blackra1n. Got the successful message but when I go to Itunes it tells me that the ipod is recovery mode. I must restore this ipod before I can use it with itunes ;(

  • You can do a firmware restore to unjailbreak it.

    I don´t get it, first you warn “do not upgrade to 3.1.2 using iTunes ” and after that, in the instructions you say “Upgrade to OS 3.1.2 via iTunes”.

    my phone it´s like new, never jailbreak, just upgraded to 3.1.2 using itunes. Can I jailbreak with this method?

  • ************help please******************

    i have been trying to do this but i need major help.. i have an itouch software 3.1.2 (im not sure which gen my itouch is but its 8gig with external volume control), itunes 9, windows vista but i changed the compatibility thing. so when i try to run the blackra1n with itouch plugged in it says “restoring” but then it opens itunes and forces me to do an itunes restore, at the end of that restore blackra1n says “Done!!” but i dont have the app on my itouch and my itouch never shows a picture of geohot… Any help will be greatly appreciated and i can be contacted at Blazejunk@yahoo.com..

      no, everything stays. as long as your ipod is backed up on your computer, even if all hell breaks loose on your ipod, you can restore it. bottom line, nothing is deleted.

  • tyler73

    I have followed instructions carefully and no luck. I have restored and tried again. I am having the same issue as Yatin had, yet he did not say what it was that he did to get it to work. Do I need to completely shut iTunes down with msconfig? or just exit and then run blackra1n? When it says that ipod is in recovery mode and needs to be restored, is that normal?

  • Just exit iTunes and run blackra1n. blackra1n automatically puts it in recovery mode while jailbreaking so that's normal.

  • KhmerKid

    where can i find blackra1n

  • Download it from the link in the post

  • Robiho

    How long wil it take for the mac version to be out?????

      are you on pot? do you realize how many people use this? and how many have 8gb? this works almost flawlessly. if something is wrong its either by you giving up or you messing up.

  • tyler73

    Am i right to think that when itunes opens as soon as blackra1n says it will be jailbreak after reboot is the conflict? If I am …how do I get itunes to stop reading the ipod until it reboots? I am not able to get past this point. The screen stays blank and when I reboot myself, my touch is normal with no icon.

    hey, please help me out.
    I read that itunes needs to be closed for jailbreak to work so i closed itunes and ran blackrain. when my ipod goes into dfu with blackrain, itunes automaticly opens and it shows the usb screen on the ipod touch.
    What do I do? It there a way to disable itunes from automaticly starting?

  • Yup it will. Jailbreaking shouldn't have deleted your data though.

  • Try restoring your iPod Touch and do the process again. Some people got it working after trying many times.

  • Let it stay open if it opens by itself. The process should complete itself.

  • i am a wake

    hey i cant find where to download black ra1n in the description

    Do I need wi-fi to install Cydia to after I get blackra1n icon ? Or can I install Cydia using data cable too ?

    Hi, I've got a little problem. If I want to download cydia, it always says: error downloading cydia. Could not download. Error: Error Doman=NSURLErrorDomain Code =-1001 UserInfo=0x17aa10 “timed out”

    Can you help me please?

  • Check it wi-fi is working fine on your device. Seems like an Internet issue.

  • SiddharthDuggal

    Will it work with iPod touch 8gb version too ? Has anyone tried on this set ?

    Hey, if I start “blackra1n” it always says: Using Cached Apps List. The apps can not be downloaded. Make sure you have a valid internet connection. But my internet connection is ok… Can you help me pls?

  • I did, on an iPod Touch 2G 8GB and it worked fine.

  • Can you browser in mobile safari? It seems like an Internet connection issue.

  • khalid

    i have iphone 3gs 3.1.2
    it doesnt unlocked it

  • It isn't an unlock tool to begin with. It only jailbreaks.

  • elit

    Yeah, safari works fine, it loads google…. :(

  • kalsa

    How long does it take to install cydia? also, can you download apps without wifi?

  • Travis L

    Ditto with me, ive probably restored 20 times now. I guess I'll just sit tight and wait for more responses, or for my pc guru to figure out how to do this for me. BlackRa1n runs, the logo pops up on the ipod (2gen 8gb, 3.1.1 ootb with 3.1.2 upgraded), then the program on the PC says “done, waiting for reboot” and it NEVER REBOOTS. If anyone does come up with a good answer please email me at g0dless420@yahoo.com thanks XD

    I've been waiting for mine to reboot… it's been about 5 minutes and nothing. I've tried 3 times… maybe 4 is a charm?

    WOW! im on the iphone 3gs 3.1.2 and i clicked make it rain and the next thing i know my phone was jailbroken. amazing. I LUV U

    Step Three : Hit the large make it rain button, and wait for your device to entering in Recovery mode. The conventional recovery mode screen is replaced by GeoHotz photo like the screenshot below.

    The Recovery screen has not changed.

  • Name

    how long does it usually take? and what does the screen look like when its processing?

  • Travis L

    some one please email me what to do, ive read so many sights today that i cant remember where i've been… the blackra1n app appears to run fine, and it gives the message “done, waiting for reboot” …but thats it. after that point it doesnt reboot even if i try to use dfu mode (sleep/home for 10 secs). I have an 8gb 2nd gen 3.1.1 out of the box and updated to 3.1.2… any info may get missed if posted here so please email me a respones at g0dless420@yahoo.com… g0d bless Geo!!

  • acidicchip

    I just ran blackra1n on my iPhone 3Gs 3.1.2 and all worked fine. I actually did it twice… I then tried with my iPod 3G 3.1.2, and no luck. After geo's face shows up for a good minute, and then the loading icon shows on the bottom of the icon, the screen goes blank, and nothing else happens. I left it there for 15 minutes, and it won't even turn back on. When I load up iTunes it says it needs to be restored. iTunes pops up during the JB process, but it did it with the iPhone, so I think it's irrelevant as long as iTunes is closed when you start the process.

    I think it is safe to say, unless someone specifically posts that they got it working with their iPod 3G 3.1.2, that it in fact does not work.

    Note:
    I've tried the process several times fo rthe iPod with no prevail. I performed the process on the iPhone twice, successfully each time. 3.1.1 and 3.1.2

  • luis

    i have the same problem i bought my ipod touch yesterday its a 3g 8gb one any help?

    • alec

      which problem do you have? if you bought it recently it should be running 3.1.2 software. just download blackra1n then run it. the icon, which is a black rain drop, should appear on your i touch. click it, then download cydia, then you can download all the apps and junk.

    You keep saying that, but people keep having the same problem. Re-running blackra1n.exe simply results in the screen saying that its waiting for an iPhone/iPod to be connected. Of course disconnecting the iPod fully, waiting a few seconds, and reconnecting it does NOT resolve any issue.

    I am having a hard time Jail breaking my Touch 2g 16 gb

    Maybe i have to Run as Administrator along with running in XP compatibility mode ?

    ( I Have tried both 32 and 64 Bit computers, both windows vista )

    Any help anyone? Thanks

  • This is what the developer has told for the iPod Touch 3G jailbreak. It worked fine for me and other people though so I'm trying to help those who are unable to jailbreak with all I can.
    Sorry to know it doesn't work for you.

  • zach

    hey there
    great guide, im having some problems though
    i have an iphone 3g on 3.1.2
    on windows vista
    the problem is that when i run blackra1n
    it goes all good till it goes to recovery mode
    where it does not turn to the picture of the guy,
    rather it is the apple connect to itunes logo

    ive tried to do different things ( run as administrator, change compatibility ect.)
    but no luck?

    any suggestions/solutions?

    thanks alot zach

  • Name

    Useless answer. If the phone bricks out to DFU then blackra1n hangs at the first screen waiting for th phone to be conected.

    It's s non-recoverable DFU state (unlike the redsn0w issues) which requires restoration.

    Re-running blackra1n is fucking useless, and geogay is a script kiddie with a god complex

  • pino

    Whenever I try this, I hit “make it rain” then Itunes opens up and says it “has detected an Ipod in recover mode. You must restor this Ipod before it can be used with Itunes.” After restoring it and what not, I try to run Blackrain again and same thing occurs. Any1 know whats up?

      Purplera1n unlocks iphones. This means it stops them from only being able to use a certian sevice provider.

      So this is useless for an IPT.

Does anyone know why?It worked perfectly after rebooting but not after I switched off and on again..Does that mean that I have to connect my ipt to a computer and run blackrain each time before i can use it?

    Repeated attempts at this will screw up software embedded into the phone its self required to handle itunes – you will get errors trying to restore the phone back to original firmware.

    followed all instructions as listed. all went well until reboot time… my ipod touch now will not turn on at all! my heart is slightly broken. ive read dozens of similar problems as my own, yet with no definitive solution. i tried holding the home button down then plugging it in, and got nothing. tried holding power button and home button down, again, nothing. there has to be a way to force a reset or something on this device. im entirely lost and upset at this point, im not sure if its the softwares fault or the hardware. i just need some flavor of a solution to this annoying problem. thanks for your help guys :)

      Plug in the ipod then go into itunes. click on the picture that says “Administrators Ipod” and hit restore. WARNING: THIS WILL DELETE ALL DOWNLOADED APPS AND SET DATA. IPOD WILL BE THE SAME AS IT WAS WHEN YOU FIRST GOT IT!

  • You can just restore your iTouch to the original firmware using iTunes.

  • Yup it should. Most jailbreaks don't work after upgrades to latest firmwares. You then have to wait for new jailbreak tools.

    It took abt 1 minute for the entire process. But I supposedly can't use it now because I switched it off.

    Whenever I switch off the Ipod, I have to run blackra1n again..That's what was commented on my situation..I don't know if this is true ;(

  • Which iPod touch do you have?

  • Yatin

    Hi there.. This is what someone commented on my problem.. Could this be true?

    ” Apparently with ipt 2g you have to run blackrain every time you restart “

  • Nope, that only applies for iPod Touch 3G

  • Anonymous

    when i turn my ipod off and i turn it back on it shows that its on recovery mode and i have to redo the restore on itunes so it could go back to normal or else i can’t take off the recovery mode it would just stay and also i have to redo the jailbreak with blackra1n. how can i fix this problem from the ipod so i could turn it off and back on like a normal ipod?

  • Yatin

    This might be worth a short .. uninstall and re-install iTunes and restore your Ipod version.

    Plug the Ipod into the USB and wait for about 10 minutes before you start the process ;)

    Good luck!

    “when i run Blackra1n it starts but when it comes to reboting it just stays black pleas help”

    “UPDATE: If your device doesn’t boot again, don’t panic. Just re-run blackra1n while the device is plugged in.”

    All I did for my Jailbroken 2G Touch 3.1 was

    1. On my MacBook, in iTunes 9, downloaded and updated (not restore) to 3.1.2
    2. Restarted in BootCamp Win XP SP3
    3. Plug in Touch
    4. Start blackrain
    5. I got a black/blank screen after the DFU plug screen
    6. Closed and reran blackrain
    7 Then I saw the picture.
    8. Be patient and wait after this.

    iPod Touch 2nd Gen Upgraded to 3.1.2 – Jailbreak with blackra1n : My experience was different than anyone elses so far so I thought I'd give you all my example to maybe help out if you run into the same problems. First, I upgraded to 3.1.2 in iTunes, after backing up everything , I also used Cydia's back up programs as well. Next I made it rain! And boy did it. It just stuck on running, and instead of the picture of that sexy boy I got the picture saying I needed to plug my iPod Touch into iTunes. So I waited around for about 20 minutes. Obviously realizing nothing is happening, I unplug my iPod Touch, close blackra1n and start over. This time it was very different. I left the Ipod touch on, then ran blackra1n. About a tenth of a second later, i briefly saw George's picture on my Ipod and it was done, after a quick reboot. So i turned it back on, and I finally had the teardrop thing icon in my screens. I clicked that, got an error of some kind, just ignored it and went ahead and started installing Cydia, it did a reorganize and closed, i started it back up with the Cydia icon and it was like magic.

    So everything works very simply. If you get stuck somewhere, just start over. I've got everything back perfectly. I will give this boy some money, and maybe if he'd like to go on a date, or just maybe I'll put out a little for him. Thank you cute boy.

  • Logan

    OK…. so heres the deal, need some help hoping you guys can offer some answers… Back when the only way to hack your ipod touch 2g 8gig was to winpwn it, i tried that. Unsuccessfully… I always had a problem with the dfu and/or recovery mode, or what not… after countless attempts, i gave up. Now that this *easy* way is out, i decided to give it another shot, low and behold, blackra1n gets stuck on the entering recovery mode. I have gone through all of the other attempts and steps and everything, including holding home, putting it in C:/ EVERYTHING, including the list that the guy put up for the 8,000 questions. I am currently running vista 64 bit, and have tried it on this computer, and my old desktop running xp, no go on either… Both times it gets to the point where it puts the ipod into the plug in to restore screen, and goes no further. Anyone available to help????

  • Logan

    I should probably also state, that i have restored it to 3.1.2 after every attempt and getting stuck.

  • Logan

    Ok, nevermind, i got the damn thing working just in time for my ipod to still have life. I ran it without using compatibility mode, and it worked flawlessly.

    Ok bro, i tried this and verything was going right, and when it was waiting for my itouch to reboot, i was the picture of george, but it then turned off and i couldnt get it to turn back on. Itunes recognized there was an itouch docked but i lost all of my apps and information. What the hell happened?

  • anthony727

    I had issues trying to run this on Windows 7 Ultimate 32 with my iPhone 3G. I had made the mistake of running it from a download folder I have on another shared network drive about 100 times. Everytime I tried to run it, Blackra1n would say running, but the iPhone would show the plug into iTunes screen. So I tried dumping the .exe file on the root of the c: drive, rebooting the iPhone, and rerun Blackra1n. It ran perfectly there without turning on any compatibility options.

  • Calvin

    HELP!!!
    I just blackra1n my ipod touch 3rd generation, it works, but when i shut down my ipod and turn it back on, it shows the plug into itunes screen, the only way to make it work again, is to re-run blackra1n again, is that a way to fix this problem? help.

    hey guys worked great for me use vista home premium but i forgot to use xp compitability but it worked fine no thanks.

  • kyrill

    I have heard that the jailbreak for the ipod touch 3g is unthetered wich means that if you shut it down it isn't jailbroken anymore.

  • kyrill

    i mean thetered in stead of unthetered

  • nefty2009

    HI, I have an iphone 3gs 32gb and I wanna try the jailbreak but I don't want to screw my phone so I have a couple questions:

    1. Will I be able to make calls from it and use the 3g network from at&t ?
    2. If I restore it to normal… does some one will notice it was jailbroken?
    3. When it's hacked, do I have to “unlock” it to use on the at&t network?
    4. If i restore it after the hack, will i have my normal service back and the 3g network?
    5. This works for 3.1.2 only?
    6. Any difference if i do it on mac or xp?

    Any other help will be appreciated

  • Danny

    Same happens to me dude.

  • Igor Barychev

    go to top where it says “Once your iPod Touch has upgraded to 3.1.2, download blackra1n. Use Windows XP compatibility mode if you’re using Windows Vista or Windows 7.' and click blackra1n

  • hoyt

    It is tethered so you will need to plug it in and “make it ra1n” every time that you restart your device in order to boot it. Blackra1n is great but seems more like a temp fix till dev team can develop a stable one.

  • Charlie Rose

    can you use this jailbreak if you have the iPod touch 3rd gen but havent updated to 3.1.2???

  • mitch

    ive got ipod touch 2g 3.1.2 firmware but every time i try this jailbreak it keeps comming up with the itunes logo but not geohots and if geohots logo does come up it doesnt reboot wat the hell is happening!!

  • Name

    is it worth having it jailbroken since it will be tethered

  • daweeni

    can you connect to itunes after you jailbreak?
    Also when you hook your ipod itouch into the comp and itunes opens do you just shut it or let itunes sync it?

  • CasS

    I go tthe same thing , I bet if we can get a copy of a successful txt then we can manually make those changes with in the bammmmm thats my guess if u find on elet me no this is jus a apple born scam

  • TheGismoGod
  • TheGismoGod

    OK i finnaly figured everything out.

    To do this hack first you must know some things about your IPod/IPhone.

    1. ~YOUR MODEL NUMBER~
    On your i device got to 'Settings>General>About', scroll down untill you find Model. If the first two digits begin with MB keep following me if it starts with MC… Get lost because apparently Geo Hotz hates you!

    2.~YOUR DEVICE~
    This hack will work for IPhone 1G, 2G and 3G. For IPod Touch its 1G and 2G.
    If you have IPhone 3Gs or IPod Touch 3G you are not able to do this.

    Why?

    3Gs: This will upgrade your Baseband and screw up you Phone.
    IPT: It will teather your ipod. When you run out of batterie or turn your IPod off you will have to ra1n it again. No know fix (That i know).

    Now:
    -Disable Auto Syncing in

    -Kill all ITunes processes in Task Manager. (ITunesHelper, IPodservice, ect..)

    -Plug in your IPod and press Make it ra1n.

    -Geo Hotz will appear on your device and it will then reload.

    Done.

    Believe me this works.

    I have hacked a total of 11 IPods and Phones.

    For those of you with MC try to downgrade to 3.0, redsn0w it then use a custom .ISPW to get a hacked 3.1.1 or 3.1.2!

    Or just wait for redsn0w to update to 3.1.2.

    Enjoy.

  • austin

    my ipod wont turn back on once it shuts down it says, Done, waiting for reboot, on the jailbreak popup window.

  • Glen

    If you're using Vista, DO NOT use compatibility mode! It wouldn't work unless I did it without compatibility turned on. Once I turned that compatibility off, voila… 3 seconds and done

    WTF?? It ended up bricking my iPod while downloading my first jailbroken app :(

    If I can get it to restore, I'm NOT jailbreaking again.

    Hi, for the untethered jailbreak for the ipod touch 3g. When i turn it on and rejailbreak it with blackra1n on my computer after the battery ran out of i turned it off, do i lose all my data and stuff (restore) or what.

  • Wolf

    No, you lose nothing at all. It is only the shit and bothering of re-blackra1n it. But well it takes a few minutes at the end.
    What I hate is that legal apps from the appstore don't work once JB'd. I wait for a new blackra1n for the MC models, otherwise I prefer not JBing it.

  • Chris

    What do you mean you can't use legal apps? anyways, if i JB it with blackra1n and i reJB it every morning, what harm will it do to my ipod touch 3g in long term. in ur opinion, shuld i JB my ipod touch with blackra1n? thanls a lot m8

  • danny

    Hey guys, i was finally able to jb my ipod touch 3g MC model, what i did was
    Move blackra1n to C:
    Close itunes and ituneshelper in task manager
    Make sure ipod is disconnected and turned off
    Click make it rain
    Hold power and home button at the same time
    Release power button as soon as the apple logo appears while still holding down the home button
    Keep holding the home button and plug in the usb cable
    It should appear the image of geohot
    Hope that helps someone

  • Milz

    oke thats abit weird? ur clicking make it ra1n when ur ipod is not plugged in? :/

  • danny

    Yea that shud still work, when u click make it rain, u can see the icon changes to waiting for phone…so the moment u connect the cable, it automatically starts to jb.Forgot to mention that once it says done…wait to reboot,make sure u quickly close blackra1n or youll be left with a black screen on ur ipod

  • ???

    Best jb tool eva. thank so much tried so many programs and tey were so hard but this too less than 30 sec

  • Milz

    So…
    disconnect ipod from pc,
    Turn the ipod off..
    close all itunes stuff,
    press make it ra1n,
    hold power and home button,
    when u see apple icon release the power button and hold home.
    then geohot shows.
    when it says done close blackra1n fast before the ipod gives a blackscreen?
    and then its done? and when can i release the home button then?

  • Milz

    hold power and home button,
    *EDIT -> plugin cable
    when u see apple icon release the power button and hold home.

    follow the instruction and could not make it work. Once I click “make it ra1n”, then iTune shows that <span class=”IL_AD” id=”IL_AD12″>my ipod</span> touch need to be restored. I have to restore it again. It becomes “entering recovery” forever. What did I do wrong? mine is Ipod Touch 2nd gen. I already upgrade it to 3.1.2 before that.

Appreciate it! Will definitely recommend.

  • David Johnson

    The Blackrain doesnt work at all for 3G Ipod Models starting with MC. After searching a lot on internet, I have found that the Apple guys have used so strong security in their current MC models that so far no one on earth has been able to jailbreak them. We have to wait for sometime till some reall super intelligent guy comes up with a solution

  • amarlibra88

    I have just got an itouch 64 gb 3rd generation model……….
    I did upgrade my firmware as written here….
    also ran the blackra1n application keeping the itouch connected….
    but the blackra1n runs and only shows “waiting for phone” message….
    i dont know how to unlock my touch now……
    pls…any help will be great….please….

  • David Johnson

    @amarlibra88
    Dont worry. Apple latest 3G models cant be jailbroken by Blackrain. I also tried a lot only to see my Ipod Touch dead and black. Just connect ur dead Ipod to ur computer. Make sure you have afast internet connection. Start Itunes and click on Restore button. Wait as Itunes downloads latest firmware and resets your Ipod Touch. Process will take anywhere between 30-60 minutes. Finally ur Ipod will be up and running again

  • torr

    hey guys,
    I'm trying to jailbrake an iphone 3g 3.1.2 for about 10 hours. I've tried everything (and i mean that) : all kinds of booting , holding home button when u get the runnning message, c:/ root, administrator , several restarts and restores, etc. Trust me , i'm not a n00b , and I unlocked several older versions of iphone.
    Anyone can help telling wht to do, 'cause my next thought is to reinstall my vista 32 home premium, with an windowes 7 or vista professional. But it's again a lot of time :(

  • David Johnson

    @amarlibra88
    Dont worry. First of all keep it in mind that 3rd Gen Ipod Touch Models cant be jailbreaked with Blackrain because these are latest models and apparently Apple has included very strong security measures in their 3G Ipod Touch Models. Same happened with me too. Ran jailbreak to get a totally black Ipod.
    Simply connect your Ipod to your computer and start Itunes. Make sure you are connected to Internet with a fast connection and Click on the button restore. The Itunes will connect to Apple Ipod servers and will download the frimware and do the resetting. The wholle process will take anywhere between 30 minutes to one hour and your Ipod Touch will be up and again. Dont Jailbreak with Blackrain. Wait for a month or two till someone on earth is intelligent enough to break the security of apple and comes up with a 3G Solution

  • Boxlade

    hey. i hav looked into jailbreak quite alot and this way seemed far the best. i tried it though and everything went well until it came to rebooting. it turns off but doesnt come back on and the only way to get it working again is to go into dfu mode or whatever its called. then i have to restore it from itunes. I think there is another way to turn it on but i dont know how or if im doing something wrong
    (i have a ipod touch 3rd gen)
    If anyone could help it would b greatly appreciated. thanks

    I have a 64gig 3rd generation MC and Was able to jailbreak it after trying many times. I found that by killing all the itune stuff in task manager and then running it was what worked. The only problem is that once I had cydia installed and tried to download my first app, my ipod went black and I had to restore again. Very frustrating. I do not ike the tethered version and wish that someone could just make an untethered version. My main point is that I do have a MC ipod and blackrain did work eventually in jailbreaking it.

    PROBLEM !!! the jailbreak itself works fine (2 restarts and you're done), but as soon as i power off my ipod touch (32gb 3rd gen) once it's back on it shows me the sync with itunes screen so i have to restore.. on one forum someone said that you can avoid restore by “starting” the ipod with blackra1n again, but that's not very practical.. anyone else have this problem? any fixes?

    thx a bunch!

  • cody

    now does this support the ipod touch 3g with the model number starting with mc

    oh i a 32 gb if that matters

  • Frank

    if your running vista YOU DONT NEED TO RUN IN XP COMPATIBILITY!

  • Name

    my bad! didn’t think it through… it’s a *tethered* jailbreak.. so if you power down or your battery dies on ya you get the “sync with itunes” screen and have to reboot the pod with blackra1n.. cydia and all your other apps will still be there… but all in all, not too practical if you don’t have constant access to a pc.. it’s a cool achievement, but i’ll wait for an untethered break if, that is, someone manages to master the boot of this thing.

    hope this helps someone…. peace…

    Gosh….Jailbreak failed when my iphone(3gs 3.1.2 come with) cant reboot itself. After i restore my phone blackra!n app was there but it just couldn't be open!!! Its like half jailbreak and my iphone sometimes just turn black and i need to restore everytime (with the blackrain app still on it)HELP! how do i get rid of blackra!n and restore everything to normal.Thanks guys

    edit: so i found out my model is MC which blackra!n wont work on. So how do i restore everything to normal with the blackra!n app gone after the restore.

  • Kevin

    Hold the power button and the main button down at the same time.

  • kevin

    I thought they said you can't do this with a 3rd gen? I'm pretty positive that this was explained on multiple levels.

  • kevin

    Without running it in compatability mode it ran through really fast without showing the blackra1n pic. It just rebooted and there was no jailbreak. After putting it in compatablility mode it is frozen in recovery. I'll try it again. I guess.

  • nopicnick

    hey is this still tethered for ipod touch 3g if so when are they coming out with a unthethered jailbreak for ipod touch 3g because it gets anoying one i accidently turn it off or sumtin

  • Derek

  • chacko

    something happened..as soon as i clicked “make it ra1n” my ipod went into recovery mode and everything got erased…what do i do??

  • lauraeffinlu

    dude this thing is to simple its a wow! love it

  • Poizhan

    – Download and keep BlackRa1n.exe in your C:
    – Right click on BlackRa1n.exe –> properties–> Compatibility -> check the run this program in compatibility mode for… XP and also check the Run as admin option.

    – Upgrade to 3.1.2 and restore with your latest back up(sync contacts etc etc)
    – Close itunes

    – Go to control panel (classic view)-> User Accounts ->Manage another account -> Create new account -> Select Administrator option and create a new account
    – Click on the newly created account and select Create password to set a password.

    – Shutdown your system
    – Boot your system
    – Login with your new admin account
    – Let the windows complete setting up your desktop

    – Now connect your iphone via usb
    – Right click on BlackRa1n.exe and run as admin ( though already set to run as admin in properties, just making sure.. this is what i did)
    – Click on 'Make it Ra1n”
    – Sit back and relax.. (you have to click on a lengthy message from BlacRa1n during the process to say 'OK' ) GeoHot screen will appear and reboot ur iphone.. after that its all simple.. check ur iphone for blackra1n app..

    The blackra1n executable process hangs when iTunes detects the iphone in dfu mode and will open trying to restore it. But during the last step itunes will try to open.. but because of new user, it will get stuck on license agreement page..

  • Well…it would be advisable to use appulous instead…cuz everything is free there.

  • If it is mc It means you cannot jailbreak with blackra1n as It will be tethered. You have a 3G iPod

  • Its because It's tethered. Everytime you reboot you will need to blackra1n it

  • johnny

    what version of iTunes you have? Use 8.2 version, let your ipod restored with iTunes and than try again blackra1n. I hade the same problem, I just replaced iTunes 9 with older version and everythings fine.

  • jmiller

    With blackra1n rc2 it worked when NOT running in xp mode

  • danielcanfield

  • John Doe

    ok, i installed everything then my iTouch(3rd gen 8 gig) brought up the connect to iTunes screen and iTunes said i have to restore it. How do u get around this?

  • bbryannn

    Hello,

    I have installed Cydia on my iPod touch but how can I now downlaod free stuff like games or thing?
    And what is the difference between Cydia, Icy and Rock?

    Please comment fast

  • Cydia isn't just for free stuff. It has many quality paid apps as well. And
    Icy and Rock are just Cydia alternatives. You can try each of them and use
    the one that suits your taste.

  • C00LChris

    I'm kinda computer stupid. So i need help. After i installed it i pressed “make it rain” and all it says is “entering recovery” for like an hour now. Do i need to do something else for it to work or what?

  • C00LChris

    Okay i'm sort of computer stupid so i need help. I downloaded it and clicked on the make it rain button but all it says is “entering recovery” for like an hour now. What do i need to do in order to get it to work?

  • There isn't a method yet, I'll update the blog when there is one. Stay tuned!

  • Pink screen? That's weird! Try this guide: http://www.ithinkdiff.com/fixing-issues-with-ip

  • bbryannn

    but how can i now get free games like patience or chess or mah jong or something?
    because i cant find them in cydia.

    Please comment back

  • everything worked fine but there is no black rain icon HELP ASAP!

  • Milz

    worked for me after a few tries with RC2
    MC model

  • Find a source (because i dont remember it) and install, Installous, its basically an app store but everything is free.
    Reminder: Not every app is available, only cracked apps are. But 90% of the apps are in the database so check it out!

  • Suky

    Just jailbroke my daughter 1st Gen iTouch on Win 7 system. It worked flawlessly – even without changing it to compatibility mode in the second step. The procedure is fast and as simple as one two three. Thank you very much for this commendable blackra1n solution.
    Great job George…two thumbs way up.

  • seanny

    umm my ipod froze so i restarted it and now it doesn't want to turn back on. what do i do?

    i've had my ipod jailbroken before when it was verison 3.00 n then i updated to 3.1.1 n it erased me cydia but i still have all of my apps and i was just wondering if after installin cydia my apps would start working again or would i have to do everything i did before all over again

  • ace

    well i dont know if i got it jailbroken i have an ipod touch 2g so i dowloaded blackra1n and it said it jailbroke your IPHONE??? the wierd thing is i have the blackra1n app thing in my ipod but i cant use it yet(no wireless internet connection). also as for doing stuff like going to the compatibility screen i didnt do and the i recovered my ipod cause i had to for some reason but i have the blackra1n app so idk if its jailbroken

    p.s. im a noob its my first time lol

  • George

    So, I have successfully jailbroken my 32gb iPod touch a few times now using Blackra1n, that’s the simple part. However, after I install Cydia, Rock or Icy, is when I run into issues. Each time I have jailbroken this thing, I try to install apps from any of the three programs, and it is then that my iPod decides it does not want to work anymore… So each time I’ve jailbroken it, I end up having to do a full restore. has anybody else had this issue, or does anyone know how to fix it? Thanks.

    Please email to ggoodman1022@gmail.com, instead of posting here, or along with posting here… I check email WAY more frequently than this site

    i try this a many time but it no work. it take ipod to screen with plug and itunes picture. many time. please help with my problem. maybe i help you also. ASAP!!

  • me

    is blackra1n all u need?

    • Anonymous

      no you need 4000 dollars.

  • Dennis_lee

    You can get all free games you want on appulo.com (download and double click)
    NOT via cydia ;)

  • ike

    it works perfect

  • Woodie

    Works fine, but unable to use it, as I have no wireless internet connection, so totally useless to me, why can't you download cydia via a PC and install it that way, or include it in Blackra1n?

  • jessie19994

    mine showed the pic but instead of rebooting it told me i had to reconnec to itunes

  • degrimreaper

    I think i know what is the problem here. Like you i have encountered the same problem as well. I guess we are using the same model of Iphone 3Gs starting with “MC”.

    Apparently, Blackrain application only works with “MB” version of the model.

    Cheers…

  • rock5991

    When i go into the blackra1n app it says that there is an invalid argument and so i cant get cydia or rock, any advice?

  • Woodie

    <comment snipped>

    • Woodie

      Ok, I’ve managed to get both Rock and Cydia installed,

  • Acefire

    When u get the connect to itunes picture, it means that ur ipod/iphone has entered recovery mode. When that happens,

    STEP 1: LEAVE YOUR iPod/iPhone ALONE!!(Don't press any buttons and DON'T unplug the cable)

    STEP 2: Close blackra1n.

    STEP 3: Run blackra1n again(After running it for the 2nd time, wait for the pop up asking for you to donate. If you do not get the pop up after sometime, close blackra1n and start it again.) PS: It needed me to run blackra1n 3 times for it to work.

  • Don't discuss privacy here. Thanks.

  • eddie0208

    hi, when i launch blackrain on my computer all that happens is my ipod comes up with the connect to itunes screen. what should i do??

  • abcl

  • Witcher

    wow… this is without a doubt the simplest jail break I have ever done. No DFU mode, no recovery mode in iTunes, this jailbreak did it all itself. And the best part is it downloaded fast and probably took less than two minutes to complete. I love this guy. Thank you so much!

    I jailbroke my ipod touch 3g… But before i jailbroke i updated my iod to 3.1.2 fireware and i clicked “make it rain” i used windows xp… Everything went fine but on my ipod i went to blackra1n and downloaded cydia but icy wasn't there to download… And i didn't have winterboard so i downloaded it and i had to reboot and so i did… but then when i tried to see how much memory i had left to download apps it shut off on me… so i tried to reboot it and i had lines going from the top to the bottom of the screen… And i just don't know what i did wrong i follow all the steps… So my questions are (Was i suppose to restore my device to 3.1.2 fireware before jailbreaking)… (and why was it lines going from the top to the bottom of the screen on my device)… And if anyone can answer my questions and have some information that i should know you can email me at [{D_town_baller07@yahoo.com}]

    i have a ipod touch 8 GB 2nd generation with 3.1.2 update it gose through fine till itunes pops up and says ipod in recovery and my ipod shows the plug into itunes screen i have to restore my ipod and it has nothing on it any help

  • That's not true. You still have to buy apps which aren't free.

  • QR_LAzlow

    its because the jailbreak is not 100% perfect yet, if you jailbreak it, you can't turn off your ipod, and if you close it, you'll have the “re-jailbeak” it

  • laura fancilliano

    what happend is that i did black rain and then when i did i played wih it but i shut it off and then i went back to 'plug into itunes' icon so i did and then is repaired itself then stoped. i looked at it for a second and then saw that blackra1n and cydia and the rest wasnt there so now i have to keep rebbotting and rbooting it but how do i make it stop nd just keep it jailbroken withno problems and not rebooting twice or more cuzz its pissin me off

    if someone knows how to solve please tell me i'd appreciette it very much

    walker-express@hotmail.com

  • Chester

    UPDATE: If your device doesn’t boot again, don’t panic. Just re-run blackra1n while the device is plugged in.

    its clearly stated there, no need to jailbreak again.

  • Just plug it to iTunes and upgrade it. Then jailbreak

  • You have to download certain apps and patches using Cydia to get them free. If you need any help just contact me at farlin [dot] pz [at] gmail [dot] com

  • gt4130bmx

    if u already ran blackra1n on ur itouch/iphone and you later get the plug into itunes. dont restore with itunes. instead plug ur device into your computer and re run blackra1n. your device will become usable again and you wont loose any of ur applications or data.

  • Jack

    If you jailbreak using this method with an ipod touch 3g, and you decide you don't want to have a jailbroken ipod, (thus you don't want to have to plug in your ipod to your computer every time you turn it on) is it possible to “Un-jailbreak” it, so you no longer need to plug it in and run blackrain?

    Sometimes apps need reboots, etc, and not being able to turn on your ipod because you are not near a computer is really crap tbh…

    Thanks

  • Just restore your firmware to unjailbreak it.

  • That's because an internet connection isn't available or you should try re jailbreaking your ipod to fix it.

  • Johny

    Hey, what you said is right- but my itouch wouldn't turn on normally without me connecting it to my computer. How do i solve this ?

    I use vista, but I can’t find the compatibility thing for XP, is there a way to get it o.o

    • Anonymous

      Basically, Click on the Blackra1n app and right click on your mouse. You’ll see a ‘compatibility’ tab. Click on it and check the box which says ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for:’ and you should have WIndows XP (Service Pack 2)

  • You'll have to restore the firmware for that using iTunes which will remove the jailbreak.

  • Check out the troubleshooting guide to find out if your iPod supports a tethered or un-tethered jailbreak. Leaving on your iPod Touch wouldn't provide any issues if you have a tethered jailbreak, turning it off would require you to reconnect it to your PC, ONLY if your iPod is one of the models that supports a tethered jailbreak.

    thanks it worked on first try :-)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Alex

    i jailbroke my 2g ipod touch 32 gb via blackrain and i cant stream videos from pocketv and or mobile theatre… also i tried to install a wall paper and it turned off my itouch and i needed to sync/restore it… why is that? it happened twice

  • nicholas G

    i did it once and it worked just fine you people that dont get it right away should follow directions

  • d hauth

  • Paulius

  • dirty dog

    worked really easssyy, awesome, the day after I downloaded it though my i touch made the usb screen, didnt work, I plugged into my computer and had to recover everything, IDk if this had anything to do with blackra1n or not. everything is fine now

  • chika

    it's perfect.. ty!

  • You don't have to recover everything. If that happens again, just connect it to the computer, close itunes and run the blackra1n tool again.

  • You're welcome :)

  • You're welcome :)

  • Care to elaborate a bit more?

    whoops i asked this already on the iphone page, but i dunno maybe its different for itouches, is it supposed to stay on the restore screen (the one with the itunes logo and connector cable) for a long long time? or is something going wrong?

  • Yes, that could be the issue.

  • Thomas

    this is insane…dud thx soo much…i have been trying to find a reliable jailbreak for a while for my itouch 2g 3.1.2 i have a question….is this tethered or untethered for my perticular itouch? thx again

  • Untethered. Tethered jb is for 3rd gen models.

  • Connect it to your computer, close itunes and run the jailbreak tool again.

  • burntheking

    I just got a 32 gig i touch and my friends tell me i can't jail break it because it will mess it up and void the warranty. will this program work? or is there any risk involved?

  • Erik

    Hi,
    I'm running my jailbroken iPod touch 2nd gen on 2.2.1 and i have downloaded the 3.1.2 so should i just restore my ipod with the 3.1.2 firmware and then jailbreak it??? I need help please.

    Thanks,
    Erik

  • WHAT!?! Tell them they don't know anything.
    It won't void the warranty cause you can just restore it.
    there IS a risk but really low and doesn't do much.
    Anyway i have a 32GB iTouch (2,actually 2nd gen and 3rd gen)
    And they are jailbreaked with 3.1.2 up and running!

    • Anonymous

      wats the risk?

    • jacob

      is the 3.1.2 you jailbroke tethered????

  • Kevin

    Does this work on MC serial itouch 3.1.2s?

  • Stephan

    How do I “Unjailbreak” my iPod touch. Whenever I try to restore with iTunes, it goes crazy, and I have to jailbreak it again to make it work?!

  • John

    Ok I have a 64 gig iPod touch 3g I'm a little skeptical of doing this. Can you verify tfat this is an untethered jb. Also has your latest update fixed the black screen error?

  • Slightly Frustrated

    I have no idea what im doing wrong i have an IPOD Touch 3.1.2 and i tried this a few times and I just cant seem to get the blackra1n app on my ipod, i followed all steps, it resets then restores, i even tryd stoppign the backup restore and starting it as a new ipod and nothings worrking :( :(…please someone help

  • polloe

    Hi,

    My internet connection goes through a proxy (office) which also requiers an login and passwrd. I can surf the internet with Safari and the App Store since I've filled those forms.

    But like most applications, blackra1n can't connect, thus I can't download Cydia…

    Any tips on how to get around this would be helpful!!! Thanks!

  • jacktheman

  • zabuza

    Yes you will lose everything, Its best to back it up to itunes. Then resync with the computer and your ipod shoudl be fine. I jailbroke my itouch 2g 3.0.2 a few weeks ago, i just reinstalled the apps and music. Blackra1n works fine. Now im jailbreaking a 3g itouch and it should only take me 30 seconds.

  • eazye93

    Okay…honestly, I've jailbroken (if thats the word) my iPhone twice and my ipod touch 2g twice…and this is the easiest, fastest and obviously the best way to jailbreak ur ipod…reboot normally took me atleast 2 hrs and this thing….the reboot just took like a minute….this is the best jailbreakin software ever!!!

  • Squiggles

    Um i have a problem, the George picture (or whatever you want to call it) is stuck on my iPod screen with the loading circle below it. ive tryed resetting it but it wont let me and ive also tryed running blackra1n too but that wont work either so what do i do?

  • I Feel Your Pain

    dude i know what you mean man. i spent a couple hours messing with this crap.
    what worked for me was NOT running with the xp compatibility and NOT running as administrator.
    good luck bro.

  • johannes

  • restore the firmware and try the steps again

  • as soon as it'll be available, i'll write about it.

  • thanks for writing in your experience :) Most people who haven't had good luck with it should read your comment.

  • English would be much easier to understand :)

  • drew877

    so i have the newest ipod touch 8gb model running on 3.1.2. and when i did the jailbreak it worked fine but whenever i try and reboot my ipod or turn off and then back on again i have to re-install blackra1n and run the jailbreak again to get it past the itunes symbol w/ the usb cord. is there any way to get by this so i can turn it on and off while not having to constantly re-download blackra1n.??? please comment to help me

    • Korbin

      When using “Blackrain” to jailbreak any reboot will require to use Blackrain again. For this reason avoid rebooting or running your battery down.

      • alec

        i’m having the same problem as the drew… care to elaborate on how to fix this?
        appreciate it.

  • Cedric

    I jailbroke my 3g ipod touch, using blackrain on a Mac. It worked, and I installed Cydia probperly. But the thing is every time I install an app, or reboot my Ipod, it reboots in recovery mode. So I am guessing that is what happens with mac users, and why it's only working for windows?

    I have windows 7 installed via parallels.. but I don't feel like transfering all my Itunes info on windows, so Should I wait till they find a way to jailbreak 3.1.2 on a mac?

    • Sinani

      no, it is the same for both. you just have to rejailbreak it

  • Josh

    ok i ran blackra1n and it came up with the icon that said it was jailbroken i waited about 15 minutes for it to reboot it finally did but there was no blackra1n icon in my apps and i did not see the pic of geohot can anyone help?

  • newipodtouchuser

    does this mean i can download apps and upload them to the phone

  • Jeff

    Vista -> Try with compatibility first… if this take too long or don't work try wihout compatibility…

    I keep itunes open for the procedure wihout compatibility mode and this worked great. :)

  • Auri

    i jailbroke it… and it did everything as it appears on the instructions but when i itouch was booted i didnt see blackrian icon. i tried few times no luck..
    any suggestions

  • james

    so after i install this on my ipodtouch, and install Cydia i can download anything off the apple store? or will it still charge my creditcard?

    • Korbin

      When using the apple store you will be charged still. You can get free apps from other sites to put on your jailbroke ipod.

  • tanmay

    hi just did the jailbreak so far so good but what i want to know is does it wipe your music and videos?

    • Sinani

      Yes, but if you have iTunes 9 or above it backs up, so the next time you sync they will go on without deleting cydia or any of your new apps from it.

        • Dmitry Sobolev

          Don’t worry. Blackra1n does only so called “tethered unlock” of iPod Touch 3g now. It means you have to run blackra1in.exe every time you switch off your device. I don’t know when this feature will be fixed. I hope soon :-)

  • Fraser

    I got my icons dowloaded sruff fine turned my ipod off it wont turn on it just displays the apple sign OMG PLEASSE HELPP!!!!!

    • Alfred

      hey umm well the same thing happened to me. i turned it off, and tried to turn it back on but all that came up was the apple sign and a loading circle thing.
      what you have to do is open itunes, plug the ipod in, turn it on. and after awhile it should come up with something (if your running on windows) saying that theres something decected, but it cant be recognised.

      so what i did was a googled it, and it said to polug it in, and hold the off button and the home button. it then says that message, but dont let go, you have to keep holding both buttons i did it for i think 3 times (it turns on and off) and then i let go of the off button, and it should come up in itnes, then u have to restore it , but it works fine. i have had to do it twice, i used the jailbreak software redsn0w, doesnt really work well…

      i hope this helped!

      good luck,
      alfred

  • Ashley

    FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE HAVING THE PROBLEM WITH ITOUCH 2G, when it tells you to plug it into iTunes and to restore it, DON’T RESTORE IT. Go to properties for blackrain and uncheck the “run this program compatibility.” So you’re basically just undoing step one. I have Vista and once I did this, it worked perfectly.

    • Lulu

      Thank you soo much, the advice worked like a charm. =3 <3

    well i have the tethered version but i deleted the jailbreak off my ipod cuz it makes me reboot everytime i turn my ipod on which makes me mad. is there anyway i can get his image off my ipod when i turn it on all the time??

  • Tom

    Okay, First time I tried it, It got past that gay face, then it rebooted, After it rebooted, The deivce showed up with a White Usb lead and an iTunes icon, and their was a flash loading circle at the very bottom for about 1 hour, It was frozen, Untill I held down all the buttons on the iTouch and restored the Original firmware which deleted my firmware. Am going to give this a second go, As it seemed to work for all of them up their ^^.

  • Tom

    Okay, to those of you who get stuck at the DFU mode, Read these steps on how to restore iPhone/iTouch and to Finaly Jailbreak it.

    1.) At the DFU-Mode screen, Hold down ALL buttons untill the device turns OFF. Turn the device back in, with the Usb cable plugged in.
    2.) Let iTunes open and restore your iPhone/iTouch to the most recent version (In this case, 3.1.2, This takes about 15 – 20 minutes tops) Close iTunes.
    3.) After the iPhone/iTouch is restored, Close iTunes and let the Device restart. After the Device has restarted, CONNECT TO A WI-FI CONNECTION, ANY WILL DO.
    4.) After you have connected to a Wi-Fi connection, Open up Task Manager on windows. (ALT-CTRL-DEL < Task Manager < iTunesHelper.exe End Process)
    We do this because in some cases, after the Device has rebooted, iTunes tend to open and start restoring it instantly (Hence the device being stuck in DFU-Mode)
    5.) Plug in your Device and Download blackra1n (save it to computer). Open blackra1n and click “m4ke it ra1n”. Windows will detect that your Device is in DFU-Mode (Recovery Mode) and install it. At the same time as windows is installing the Devices recovery mode drivers, you should see a picture of a Man/Boy on your Device for about 1 minute.
    6.) After this 1 minute, Your device shall be jailbroken, and the “blackra1n” app should be on your device. Click on it, And choose “cydia” which will then be Downloaded and extracted on your Device. After extraction is done, The Cydia software will reorganise your Device, Giving yu access to Root Folders and applications blocked by Apple.

    ALL OF THAT TUTURIAL WAS MY OWN, THANK YOU FOR READING!

    i downloaded everything and followed all the steps, but when i click on rock, it opens a blank screen, then closes after 2 or 3 seconds, what does this mean??

  • Jordan

    I have been trying Blackra1n for two days on my new iPod Touch 16gb, OS 3.1.2 to no avail. I first had OS 2.1.2, and Blackra1n still didn’t work then either, but I tried Redsn0w and jailbroke on the first try. The only reason that I undated at all, is because I wanted to use apps that needed the update to 3.0 OS. I have tried everything written on the web. I do not understand what the problem is. This is what happens:

    Everything goes according to directions until it says “Your iPod is now Jailbroken..blah,blah,blah… donate”, but then my iPod screen is dark, and the weird guy with the circle of iPods never pops up (not even once). I then, usually, press and hold the sleep button until it reboots, and then it’s virtually UNTOUCHED by Blackra1n.

    ANY advice would be SOOOOO greatly appreciated…What the hell can I do?

  • Bjakke

    When is blackra1n becoming untethered for ipod touch 3g 3.1.2?

  • alberto

    ok i have a question… ok now say this all works…seeing as its tethered…it is no longer jail broken when u turn it off and back on right? so what about the apps u downloaded during that time…does it work? and can u reboot it without having to plug it in again?

  • help

    well tom your comment still doesnt help me my ipod is thethered i jailbroke my ipod but i have to connect it to itunes everytime i turn it on how can i make it so i dont have to connect to itunes everytime i turn it on!

  • bob

    i jailbroke my itouch, i had thought that jailbreaking it would give me internet everywhere.. does it not? because i still can only get internet from my wifi from my house, and pretty much the whole reason i jailbroke it was for the internet everywhere. if it is suppose to give me internet everywhere will someone please tell me how to fix it?

    • Sam

      Jailbreaking just means free apps/themes etc

      Still need Wifi if you use Touch

    • Vance kang

      dude go read up on interent first
      interenet can only be gotten if u have a sim card which only the iphone has or wifi thats what ipod touch has and wifi ony can connect to wifi spots

    • Liger500

      Obviously it doesn’t do the internet thing, especially not for the iTouch. If you had an iPhone then you could use that to get internet pretty much anywhere for your laptop, seeing as the iPhone already gets internet from it’s 3G connection.

    • Chris

      where the hell did you get that from?, no such thing

  • bob

    how do i uninstall the rock app?

  • Sam

    Every single time

  • Alice Luster

    please help. i jailbroke my ipod with blackra1n, did everything right, even downloaded tons of apps using cydia. alright, i turned off my ipod, and every time i try turing it back on, it shows the USB and iTunes thing, and I bascially HAVE to restore EVERYTIME, to even get my ipod on. And then it DELETES everything. including blackra1n. i’ve done this two times now. and i just have to keep jailbreaking it, restoring it, and again. PLEASE help. is there a way to get past the whole HAVING TO RESTORE ordeal. PLEASE! i’m asking anyone. I NEED HELP.

    • Ricky

      @Alice Luster

      1rst of all. NEVER, NEVER, Turn OFF by holding power button. This may cause ”connect to iTunes ”

      2nd. Just ” Jailbreak ” another time, open blackra1n, ( with iTunes process closed.) Jailbreak, and all will be good. !

      Hope I helped. :)

    • Liger500

      Yea, when it does that screen with the USB cable and the iTunes logo…thing, plug it into your computer and ignore whatever iTunes says and just run Blackra1n again. It’ll take a minute to reboot with the dudes face on the screen and then wham-boodaloo-bam, you’re good again.
      Least ways that’s what I do.

    “i’ve done this two times now. and i just have to keep jailbreaking it, restoring it, and again. PLEASE help. is there a way to get past the whole HAVING TO RESTORE ordeal. PLEASE! i’m asking anyone. I NEED HELP.”

    I have exactly the same problem… I had quite a few applications before i attempted to jailbreak and lost them all… the recovery wouldn’t let me recover my files. I’m not too bothered about them but it would be nice to be able to have them back, I have a new (reasonably) iPod touch 3G 3.1.2, I’ve been reading around where people have managed to get it jailbroke with the same as me. I manage to get cydia and a bunch of cool apps but if i turn the ipod off then it just wont boot up. If you know of any way to jailbreak it then please e-mail me at arsenal4lyfe1@hotmail.co.uk it would be greatly appreciated.

    • eagle28

      whenever your ipod turns off you are going to need to connect it to your computer and run blackra1n. Your iPod touch is tethered so you have to do this everytime but luckily blackra1n only takes like 2 minutes to reboot

  • Lewis

    I’ve looked into the problem a bit more now, when you have the USB and iTunes disc icon and your ipod touch won’t load the only way to get it working for me without having to recover was to run blackra1n again. So you basically have a jailbroke touch 3G 3.1.2 until you turn it off then the icon/usb comes back, I hear a 3.1.2 3rd generation will be coming after the new year. I have also had a few more similar problems which I’ve been able to get around. My advice is if you have an ipod touch 3.1.2 3G, don’t jailbreak until it can be done with no problems.

    However I am a member to a website where you can get lots of free apps (which people have paid for) at http://www.warez-bb.org you have to register an account there and just search for ipod touch applications. There are really good games on there such as Cod zombies, Fifa 10 etc. the best app i downloaded from there was a sat nav but only works well if you have the iPhone because once you go out of range of wifi on the touch you lose signal. from warez it is completely risk free and there are very detailed guides on there if you get stuck there’s over a million users on there so dont be worried about virus’s, i’ve never had any from there.

    If you have any other questions feel free to e-mail me and i’ll be more than happy to try help you.

  • Brian

    @Alice Luster
    this happened to me also i think because i had itunes open during the install
    close itunes, and hard reset your touch. (hold the power + home button until it shuts down)
    re run blackra1n and you should all set

  • Aiden

    PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ THIS! I NEED HELP!!

    I have the iPod Touch 3G 3.1.2 and when i did it first time it went to the recovery screen and it said the i have an iPod that needs to be restored… now when you do this it also downloads the update, my internet is 56k (really f**king slow) 8_( it takes about 4 hours to download it!!!!!!!!!! And my computer always freezes when I’m downloading something because my sister always goes on X(] so i’m not gonna download it. But the second time I went to jailbreak it, it worked!! :D But i didn’t have wifi so i thought ‘meh’ and deleted it just for the time until i got near wifi, but then i tried to put it back on there and… it… didn’t… work… NOOOOOO!!!! PLEASE HELP ME!!

  • mike

    Hey, PEOPLE STOP TURNING OFF YOUR TOUCH, THERES NO NEED, JUST KEEP IT CHARGED, If you accidentally turn it off or let it run out of battery just plug it into your computer, Close itunes and run blackrain. All your filles will be there. If you have more questions email me at hanoncs3@aol.com put “JAILBREAK” in the subject line

  • Bassem

    Hi James,

    i am exactly in your shoes, i dont know what to do. i wanted to install the icall log delete (because the iodiots who made iphone never thought one would want to edit his/her call log!! Blah!). i used the blackra1n and it did reboot the device, i installed cydia and got the program. once program is setup, it restarts and asks to be connected to itunes, then it restores/deletes all! what the hell is wrong? did you solve your problem?

    help! anyone?

    Cheers

    • When it asks to be connected to iTunes, don’t open up iTunes. Run the blackra1n tool again, and click make it rain. It’ll fix your issue and wont restore/delete anything.

    thanks a lot!!!

  • nightjock

    When you have jailbroken your ipod touch and you do happen to turn it off or the battery runs out connect it to your pc without turning it on (the ipod that is) and close itunes if it opens then just hit make it rain and ipod will re-boot, works all the time and nothing is lost all apps from itunes still there and any others you have downloaded, in fact back to the same stae as when it went off.

Run blackra1n in admin mode. click make it rain and the device restarts then I get this stupid usb i tunes disc. I have restored my ipod 4 times. I even tried to close blackra1n while it does this and re do it then all it says is waiting for device. I have attempted everything step in this forum someone please help..

    i have rock and cydia but i don’t have icy somebody know why???

    • Icy isn’t included in latest blackra1n versions, because Rock and Cydia are better and regularly updated.

  • l33ch3r

    Okay so I did the blackra1n thing and it said my ipod was jailbroken. and I turned it off for whatever reason and then when I turned it on again it did the itunes usb thingy. so I got scared, lol and connected it to itunes and ended up uninstalling blackra1n, then I read more about it and realized everyone was having the same problem, so I tried to do the blackra1n again and it said it was jailbroken successfully but now I dont have the icon on my screen… How do I get it back. I am using the 32 gig 3g i pod touch.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

  • Andy

    ok so i have an ipod touch 3g and its 8 gigabytes. Can i jailbreak it? will it break it? since its tethered, do i have to always reboot my itouch? or just rerun blackra1n? can i also un-jailbreak my itouch if i wanted to? and also, if i dont have itunes can i still use it[jailbreak]?
    —please respond as soon as possible i need help bad!!!
    thanks

    • You can jailbreak it.
      You’ll have to rerun blackra1n whenever you reboot it and it shows the ‘connect to iTunes’ screen because it’s tethered.
      You can un-jailbreak it by restoring the firmware.
      You need iTunes to use your iPod Touch anyways for music/video/apps/bookmarks/contacts etc transfer and backup, so not a bad idea to have it before and after jailbreaking.

I just jailbrokee my ipod touch (3.1.2) using blackra1n(rc3) and installed cydia, but when i install certain apps it asks to reboot my ipod so i reboot it but when i try and start up my ipod it is in recovery mode. Is there a way i can get it out of recovery mode or is this a problem? Every time i restart my ipod i have to recover it!

    • Lailendil

      I’ve the exact same problem. Tried installing SBSetting -> it asked for reboot and was in restaure mode.

      Then I tried a 2nd time, installed Winterboard, and again restore mode :(

    • nicnax

      i too have the same problem, but i discovered that when this happens, if you run black rain again, it will load up again. so just keep your phone charged and on if you dont want to keep doing this :P

  • Ace

    i did this with my cousins 1st gen itouch 32 gb and then we tried to restore it so that we could turn it on but the mac could not recognize it anymore. so we tried it on our pc and it said it could not tell what was in the usb. Could you help?

    -Ace

    P.S. i made it rain with MY 1st and 3rd gen ipods

  • William

    -HI i have a ipod touch 8gb 3.1.2 MC model
    -when i jailbreak it it goes into recovery mode and it goes into a black screen while its running and when it says done wait for reboot its still on the black screen of DEATH!
    -i did it like 20 times.

    -the picture of geo hot came on my ipod 3 times and when the wheel stoped spinning it went back to recovery mode.

  • zy

    I just bought a 8gb ipod touch the other day. Ive been trying to download blackrain a couple of times, but then the itouch would freeze up and i would have to shut it down or connect through usb to my computer so it would reboot. Does anyone know what is going on

    • cordell

      i think so me and my friend had the same prolem with mine i believe its your computer you must use anothe one thats how we fixed it from freezingg

  • Penarly

    !!
    This isn’t working.

    Okay the first time around Blackra1n actually worked. But, cydia refused to download, so I uninstalled Blackra1n. Now, i tried putting blackra1n back on my iTouch, but everytime I do, It doesnt appear on my home screen! I do everything Im supposed to, and everything goes as it’s supposed to, but when it finishes raining, the app doesn’t appear. I’ve reinstalled everything, from the blackra1n app, to iTunes, and I’ve even restored my iTouch numerous times. Please help me!

    • 2nd time asking

      Same problem here.

    • Rachel

      You need to restore your ipod, make sure you have all your music/photos/apps etc. saved on iTunes or your computer, then reinstall blackra1n.

  • 2nd time asking

    Okay so I did the blackra1n thing and it said my ipod was jailbroken. and I turned it off for whatever reason and then when I turned it on again it did the itunes usb thingy. so I got scared, lol and connected it to itunes and ended up uninstalling blackra1n, then I read more about it and realized everyone was having the same problem, so I tried to do the blackra1n again and it said it was jailbroken successfully but now I dont have the icon on my screen… How do I get it back. I am using the 32 gig 3g i pod touch.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

  • u guys HAVE to make a blackra1n RC4 that will let u turn it on and off without messing everything up!(i sucesfully jailbroke mine but i hate that i cant turn it off)

  • matty

    After thefancy picture with the ipods shows up the screed just turns black?? Any help??

    • MacGyver

      I had the same problem so now im just un installing it. hold your home and power button until it shows the itunes usb picture. It may not work on the first try.

  • aljkdup

    Why is it when I right click the BR icon to turn on xp compatibility mode that there is no xp compat in the drop down menu?

  • Derick E.

    i have a 64gb 3gs Version 3.1.2 (7D11) i tried blackrain and i was able to put cracked apps from itunes to my ipod itouch. but when i turn off my device it always wants to have a restore and plugged into itunes. but if its just running normal, it doesn’t seem to have a problem but i can’t install other apps. how can i prevent this? is there any other solution? its really irritating that i can’t turn off the itouch, what if i ran out of battery out of nowhere? i have to redo the whole thing again? im trying to figure out if its the cydia is causing the restore, because i tried removing blackrain on the itouch. please help. thanks!

  • marvin

    i tried jailbreaking it and got lucky but the problem is i dont have signal,no signal at all how can i fix this problem im using iphone 2g with os 3.1.2 now.tnx

  • Rob

    hi, i recently accidently removed blackra1n and cydia from my itouch how do i get both back onto my ipod. please respond ASAP. :)

  • cordell

    when do you think you will have the untethered version of this?? please reply soon

  • michael

    hello. i run the blackra1n_RC3_Win and work but on ipod touch i see only the blackra1n.
    why i cant see t he other applications??
    please tell me

    • aljkdup

      I have the same problem! I see the blackra1n icon but when I click it to get the other app’s , not there.

  • Ludvik

    This was great! took me all of 30 secs after I had done a fresh recovery from 3.1.2. Thanks!

  • If your too stupid or incompetant to know how to use blackra1n, dont jailbreak. I miss when there were no apps for noobs to breka their iphones ect with.

  • aljkdup

    Everyone who uses jailbreak of some kind has to start somewhere. And I don’t think that asking questions makes us stupid or incompetent. And if all you can do is call people stupid, maybe you should get a life. Go find something else to do other than be a smartas*!

  • inSHAADitrust

    I did the Jailbreak on my itouch. But I keep this error message when I try and install Cydia (Domain=NSURLEDomain Code=-1009 UserInfo=0x19be20 “no internet connection)

    I have an internet connection. Do I need to create an iTunes account before I can download any applications? Can you explain to me why im getting this error message?

  • Grace

    I been trying to jailbreak my ipod touch 2g on fw 3.1.2 when i go to jailbreak using black rain it never reboots and i dont get the picture of geohot what should i do?

  • l33ch3r

    @Hairyballsagna:
    Because you clearly know how to do everything, and never had any questions or needed help, which explains you being here right? If your such king shyt then why are you on this help page? GTFO unless your going to give people the help they are seeking, I mean since you aren’t a noob right?

    Hi I was just reading on how to jailbreak an iPod touch but I have a few questions. First I want to know if blackra1n is safe for a 8gb 3g iPod touch. Second, I’m confused about the part on where the iPod is tethered. So does that mean If I plug in my iPod to iTunes, I have to download blackra1n all over again? Thanks a lot!

    • AaronP

      I have a brand new 3rd gen ipod touch. As long as you A. go to offical sight http://www.blackra1n.com it should work and teatherd just means every time you turn off your ipod touch you have to re connect your ipod touch to your computer and re run black ra1n (all your stuff will still be there.)

  • Mikk

    Blackra1n is not a Windows only application. It has a Mac OS version too. Im not sure where you got that info that it is a Windows only. Its the only one that has a windows version but its not a windows only.
    Also Blackra1n is not yet sufficient to use on a 3G touch since when you switch it off you have to reactivate it in your computer.

    M.

    • When this post was written, only the Windows version of blackra1n had been released.

      • Mikk

        Terribly sorry!

    I have the same problem too..can anyone help on this..

    • l33ch3r

      Okay, I figured it out. This is the only way I was able to get the icon back. I restored the ipod and reinstalled blackra1n. It was the only way I could do it. Try it, if it doesn’t work, my apologies but it worked for my 3.1.2 3rd generation ipod touch.

  • Cornelius

    i jailbreaked 3.1.2 fine. installed Rock and downloaded a ‘??background app??’ application from it. It said the ipod needed to reboot to use the application but the ‘usb cable- arrow to- itunes logo’ has been on the sreen now for about 5 minutes. What should i do? Restore?

    • AaronP

      just reconnect your ipod to your cpu and run blackra1n again

  • Gamca

    Hi guys,
    the jailbreaking does not work. Then if you struggle with recovery mode and no RESTORE works, the problem is:
    – you are using Win XP
    Solution for Restoring:
    – you have to find someone with Win Vista or Win 7.. download iTunes(correct version for the right system) and then you will be able to restore.

    Rgrds.

  • shane

    how do u download apps do u download it off cydia or app store?

  • 51leN7H3r0

    okay im having the same problem as just about everyone else here about using blackrain and then it doing the connect to itunes screen after i reboot. i did it on my 8 gig 2 gen 3.1.2 and it worked perfectly but after jailbreaking a couple of my friends itouches and it does the connect screen. any help would be great.

  • robert

    I have an 8 gig 3G iPod touch and I’ve jailbroken it and stuff

    I have downloaded many apps through installous and but I have NOT connected my iTouch to iTunes yet but I want to … so I can sync my limewire songs

    I do not have the newest version of iTunes since May 2008 and Im wondering if I should upgrade to 8.2 and connect…is it safe? what will happen? pls respond

    • That latest iTunes version is 9.0.2. I suggest that you upgrade to it.

      • nabeel

        hey imran i have a question i ran blackra1n more than once and sometimes i get stuck in the black screen or the recovery mode…i had it in the recovery mode and i ran blackra1n again and now im just stuck at the black screen i keep trying it bt no luck any ideas of what should i do it would be a BIG THANKS if u can help…..

      • robert

        If I connect to it, where will my apps go? I don’t have the original files cause I installed the apps directly from installous on my ipod.

  • Bob

    I have an iPod touch version 3.1.2 and it didn’t work. It had too restore and my whole iPod reset.I mean thats not a problem but the software didnt work

  • Alex

    Totally awesome!!!!
    Jailbroken my ipod touch 2g in less than 5 seconds.
    Blackrain rocks!!

  • j

    where can i get blackrain that has no bugs or trogin.

  • whenever i turn off my jailbroken ipod touch 3g it goes to the screen that says connect to itunes everytime so i always restore it. Is there a way to get past it without restoring. And also how do you download stuff from cydia. because i tried to download the five icon dock and it wont appear.

    • Rich

      I have that problem too. If I slide to turn off or my iPod battery diesit will go to the iTunes USB thingy is there a way I can safely turn off my iPod without having to turn on the computer then findthe website and redownload the icon? Is there a way I can fix this

  • R.J.

    My I pod is a 3g 8 gig and whenever i try to download an app off of cydia i need to reboot my ipod but then it says connect to itunes. Is there a way i can get out of that screen without having to restore my ipod?
    Thanks

  • Tom G

    to get out of the connect to itunes screen run blackra1n on your com……while installing backgrounder on my toucg 2g 8gb the screen came up and it was fixed this way. it is a great solution because it keeps all apps and settings-unlike itunes-and is really quick.

    Also does anyone know how to stop the connect screen from showing every time my battery dies or i turn it off……it is really annoying to have to keep using blackra1n to unblock it

  • Is there a blackra1n RC3? I saw it on another website and it said that it can jailbreak an Ipod touch 3G 8Gb MC model but it will be tethered. Is this true?

  • Jake

    hey, i jailbroke my ipod and now it gets stuck on the connect to itunes screen (tethered) is there a way to untether it?

  • l33ch3r

    Anyone know where to get some apps for free that you can only get with a jailbroken ipod touch?

  • Hey I’ve got a few little questions: I have an iPod touch 1G with OS 3.1.2, can I also jailbreak mine with this or not? I put 3.1.2 on the iPod on this way: http://www.blogsdna.com/4740/how-to-upgrade-update-ipod-touch-to-3-1-firmware-os-for-free.htm , but with 3.1.2 firmware ofcourse. Is that any problem?
    Second question: When it’s jailbroken, can I still connect my iPod with the pc without any problems? I don’t want to have my iPod broken ofcourse;)
    thnx!

  • James Harris

    hi i got my ipod touch the other day.
    i wanna jail brake it but every one seems so negative about it. what should i do because i dont wanna mess up my ipod.

  • Duncan

    Every time i try to install Cydia, it says “Downloading Cydia”, but the bar doesn’t move for like a minute, then it shows this error message:

    Could Not Download.
    Error: Error
    Domain=NSURLErrorDomain
    Code=-1001 Userinfo=0x19f4f0
    “timed out”

    What do i do?

  • Ross

    once an untethered version comes out, will I have to format or can we “upgrade” our jailbreak to untethered. (and if so, must it be yours or can we upgrade with any jailbreak app?)

    btw, how close are we to a tethered version? not rushing. just curious.

  • bigfan

    thank you so much this was so easy and helpful i was worried it’d be rlly difficult but u made it so easy!

  • jseven24

    For those who still can’t jailbreak 3.1.2
    1. Connect your restored to original Ipod to PC
    2. Shut down all Itunes processes
    3. Run blackra1n.exe and press “make it ra1n”
    4. Ipod will reboot and blackra1n will appear on the Ipod screen
    5. Navigate to blackra1n on Ipod Touch and Ran it. Install Cyndia
    6. Run Cyndia(don’t upgrade when asked!!!)
    7. Go to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add -> type sinfuliphonerepo.com -> click “add source”
    8. Go to find and type Appsync. Install AppSync for OS 3.1.2
    9.Go to find and type Install0us. Install it.
    10.Go to find and type iFile. Install it.
    11.Find on Cyndia and install Automati SSH, Open SSH, Toggle SSH
    12. Install Winscp on your PC. Run it.
    13. Host name is IPod’s Ip address. user – root, pass – alpine
    14. Press Save then login. Type alpine in password field again.
    15. Now u shouldhave access to all folders on Ipod.
    16. Put ipas to root/var/mobile/downloads
    17. Go to Install0us on Ipod -> downloads. Install Ipas.
    18. Ipas are installed to root/var/mobile/applications
    ENJOY!

    I do not have the newest version of iTunes since May 2008 and Im wondering if I should upgrade to 8.2 and connect…is it safe? what will happen? pls respond

    If I connect to it, where will my apps go? I don’t have the original files cause I installed the apps directly from installous on my ipod.

    • Get AppSync.. you’ll be fine

  • Katie

    Ok I got to blackra1n app on there didn’t know what the heck i was doin so i installed Cydia thing…. now i have no clue! :(

    • What are you trying to do? Cydia is to install “unsigned” apps on your touch…
      u hit the cydia button and you search for apps you want… good luck!

  • reed

    i opened blackra1n on my computer and it says that i have jailbroken it and then theres no pic of george on my ipod

  • Erik

    Hi,

  • i have an 8g ipod touch firmware 3.1.2 if i use this to jail break it will it be tethered? i’ve read a lot on blackr4in and it says the only way to hack the 8g 3.1.2 is tethered jailbreaking. is there any untethered jail breaking process?

  • zoe

    • michael

  • Jim

    Hi all,

    I’m wondering if you guys could help me.
    I jailbroken my ipod just fine but everytime I had to reboot it, it always get stuck at the itune + usb recovery screen.
    There is a way to fix it and get it boot it up again, but plugging it back into the computer and make it rain again.
    My question is, does anybody else out there have this same problem? And how to fix it so I don’t have to keep plugging it back and making it rain everytime I reboot the ipod touch.
    BTW it is the 2nd gen touch, 8gb, 3.1.2.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Karlos

      Yea i seem to have the same problem when i try doing it on my friends ipod, its an 8gb as well. It works fine on my 16gb though. Anyone know why this could be happening? Please let me know asap.

    • mike b

      you cant turn off the ipod or let the battery die beacuse the jailbreak will be gone

      • Jim

        In that case, is there a way to fix this problem?

        Thanks

        • D

          use blackra1n again, it restores it just like u had it before it died/turned off

    • Nick

      my itouch is stuck on the connect to itunes screen like when you get it !!! help me PLEASE!!!

      • Gypsy

        You would have to restore your ipod by clicking Restore on itunes.. it will return your ipod back to factory settings

  • trey

    is this a tethered jailbreak for 3rd gen?

  • habsfan

    Hi,

    I’d like to know if I can jailbreak my ipod touch to the new firmware (OS 3.1.0) if I my ipod touch is already jailbroken (OS 3.0.0)

    Thank you for your answer!

  • does it delete all your data when you turn it off or does it just delete installous

    • Jim

      It doesn’t seem to delete anything but it just have a problem with booting up.
      It will get stuck at the usb + itune screen again and the only way to get it boot up is to “let it rain” again with blackra1n.
      After it boot up, everything you had on there will still be there.
      But I’m trying to find out if anyone out there know of a way to bypass this.

  • robert

    I have another problem.

    I downloaded a theme from Cydia and now it’s asking me to reboot my device…i have no other option but to reboot it or else I wont be able to use Cydia.

    I have the new iPod touch and i already have alot of apps from installous but I have NOT connected my ipod to itunes yet cause im scared its gonna mess up

    PLEASE HELP

    • Azn Dood.

      well u then jus dont sync it….o.O
      nothing. dont let it back up either.

    • Jim

      Its fine to reboot, but if you get stuck at the usb+itune screen then just let it rain again.

  • haley

    After i downloaded Rock i downloaded a theme then it said it was going to reboot but it didnt, so i turned it on nd it stays on the usb + itunes screen so i plug it in then itunes says its in recovery mode nd that i have to restore it. If i click restore will i loose everything? what do i do?!?

  • CoolRaj

    Ze Bob – you can disable this feature by next time when you connect your ipod to your system and when you get the itunes screen then click your IPOD shown in the list and you should have a itunes sync window and then click on summary and there you need to check the option for manually manage your music etc… make sure uncheck the option for automatically start itunes when you connect your ip with pc… this should take care of this issue.

  • carlo

  • Jay

    Hey, I accidently deleted the blackra1n icon…I have restored it a few times now and then tried to reinstall blackra1n. The icon still won’t come back…any help????

    • Try erasing all the data on your iPod, do a clean install of the firmware using iTunes and then try the jailbreak again.

  • terry

    so i restored it but when i clicked it ran the blackra1n it messed
    on my screen and now the pic of that guy is stuck on my screen and it wont end

    • hailey

      you have to go to cydia and download cydia to your ipod or iphone go to manage then sources(on cydia) then edit and then add put in cydia.hackulo.us it should download once it says complete press return to cydia go to search and type instal, go down to the I’s and download installous ( you don’t need to download installer as well)
      go back to your home screnn then to safari and type in appulo.us NOT appulous.us click the top link, (it will rake a while) if it says to put in an answer to get in the answer is – cavern, once you are in search any app or game you want go to download (the best site is appscene) download the app ( it may take a while) when it is completed go to your home screen, to installous, go to downloads and select what you downloaded (in options there is a clean/dirty file option, i suggest dirty because it will accept any file type or any publisher, i havent had any problems) once you have selected it , it will download when completed go to your hme screen and it should be there!

  • Serilia

    I’m trying to jailbreak my itouch using Blackra1n. I click on “make it rain”, comp (mac) says it’s done, just need to wait for itouch to reboot, I look at my itouch and it clearly has the Blackra1n loading screen (dude + lil loading circle on the bottom), but instead of booting up it goes to the “connect to itunes” picture (ergh… one with itunes logo and usb logo), it loads up my itunes (previously fully closed), and my itunes requests for a system recovery. If I try not recovering, it stays stuck on the “connect to itunes” screen.

    Help please.

  • I open Blackra1n website but this website shows Access Denied.So, I can’t download Blackra1n.Please tell me another way to get Blackra1n.

      Hi, could someone help?

      I tried making it rain, after that it said that my gadget will be rebooted in recovery mode.

      and then the blackra1n entered recovery mode. It’s been hours and nothing happened. I unplugged the cable and repeat the processes, but now it’s stuck at the black screen with usb->iTunes logo – the blackra1n.exe is also stuck wirh “Waiting for device” message.

      any clue, guys?

    Okay, I’ve gone through 10 pages of comments and haven’t found one full proof way of fixing this:

    I have an iPod Touch 3G 32GB and whenever I try to make it ra1n it just goes into recovery mode and doesn’t do anything, I then click make it ra1n again while it’s connected and nothing happens at all. Please give me a very helpful comment.

    • bpw

      Did you figure it out? My iPod Touch 64GB is connected via USB and has the same logo on it – the usb cable pointing to iTunes. I tried making it rain several other times but nothing….no response on my iPod. I can’t even turn it off….

      You idiot. Basically what that means is that Apple has detected that you’re installing a jailbreak and is asking “please may I patch your iPod so that jailbreaking it will become impossible?”.

      Use a little more common sense in future.

  • rallidude

    the blackra1n is still tethered on my 2g ipod touch. works great until you turn it off, then all you get on reboot is the itunes icon, you have to re blackra1n it again. came with 3.1.2 firmware. any way round this yet?

  • i was trying to jailbreak my ipod and blackra1n crashed

    is my ipod ‘bricked’ or something

  • i tried to jailbreak it again but it says:

    “This application has failed to start because QTCF.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.”

    thanks

    • Sarah F

      If there were a problem you can always reboot to factory settings. Then your warranty is fine. If you tell someone you jailbroke it then of course your warranty will be voided.

    • david

      if something happens to it and you can still plug it in and it comes up in itunes restore and you’ll be set

  • Sarah F

    OMG This was so simple. I spent WEEKS trying to jailbreak my ipod touch before realizing I had a 3G. Everyone else said it can’t be done. They lied and this was so damn easy. I am going to donate some money RIGHT NOW thank you George you are so awesome.

  • Wizardcrack

    1. My ipodtouch 2g 32 gb memory is almost full. Do i need this memory in my lap to jailbreak?

      yay! nevermind, i guess 4th time is the charm …? i dunno how, but it works now

  • saucerson

    whis is stupid, I don’t like the idea of having to run blackra1n everytime you reboot. What if you need to reboot when you are on a trip, and you can’t. Very rehtard, I jailbreaked mine, and than i decided not too because of this hogwash nonscence reboot thing. And now I have to delete everything, reset it, and download an update.

  • Hey,
    When I tried jail breaking my ipod touch 3.1.2 on a mac, the picture came up and it said wait for reboot, but nothing happened ,it just stayed black. I don’t know if I have to wait longer or what.
    For now I just keep restoring it.
    If you can get back to me that would be great thanks.

    Hei, im buying an ipod touch 32gb (3g), can anyone please tell me step by step on how to jailbreak it?

    • The step by step guide is written above. READ IT. thanks

    i upgraded my ipod touch to 3.1.2 by downloading it from a site then when i restored it downloaded it for me off itunes but now my apps wont work and wont show up when i download them from rock or cydia

  • bekir

    is that really possible to jailbreak touch 8gb mc? cuz as i read some other forums, they say it doesnt work on that firmware. i tried to do jailbreak many times but each time i tried, it was on the DFU mode. there is a program named iphone browser. when i tried to browse the device, it just reminded that it was not jailborekn. i am really wondering whether it works or not.

    I restored my ipone 3g and now it wont load up what can i do to get working again.

  • Daniel

    Hey Hailey,
    Would you please email. It seems you know what your talking about and I’m having problems with a 3.1.2 ipod touch. Dabinut@gmail.com
    Thx

  • Mickey

    Blackra1n does work with 3.1.2. I have a 3rd gen ipod touch and I jailbroke my ipod with blackra1n. When you plug it in just follow the instructions. The only thing is you cant ever turn your ipod off or you will have to redo the jailbreak process with blackra1n all over again, but it does work .

  • Mike

    I was able to unlock just fine. But the only issue is when you turn the phone off it asked to connect to itunes in recovery mode. is there a fix for this yet?. I know i read somthing it has to do with the boot order now. any suggestions?

    • you must have the ipod 3rd generation. those you cant turn them off or connect to itunes when jailbroken.

  • Steven E

    DO NOT use this method if you have ipod touch 3g 3.1.2 because i did it and when i turned my ipod off it stuffed up and i had to restore it. PLUS themes DO NOT work

    • If you had read the instructions properly, you’d know that running blackra1n again fixes the restore issue when you restart your iPod Touch

  • JackFoot

    Works like a Charm :D IPOD Touch 8GB 2nd Gen Took less than 5 mins A++++++ Brillant Will recomend :D

  • Trip III

    that was extra easy it took 2 seconds lol

  • Nathan

    i jailbroke my iphone 3gs but now the wifi donst work. What should i do?

  • Diana De Leon

    were do you download blackra1n?

  • matt

    i have a 3g with 3.1.1 if i jailbreak will it be a ‘teather’ (not sure if i spelled that right) jailbreak???

  • Adalbert

    do i have to have WIFI for blackra1n to work???
    and does itunes have to be off(not running) when i download it?
    thanks

  • Luke K.

    Hey Imran, is there gonna be an update BlackRa1n or something like it soon. Something that can bypass the “tethered” feature we’re almost all suffering from.

    • I expect an update to be available but not sure by when we’ll get our hands on it. It’s sad that Apple has made it harder for 3rd gen iPod Touch jailbreakers, but currently the best way is to avoid restarts.

  • sambo

    i tunes keeps poping up when i run blackra1n!!!! RAWR!!! someone plz help

  • eheheh its me

    i downloaded it and it says its done i got the picture but the app isnt there????/

  • saket

    when will the untethered version of the crack come…..??

  • kasa

    i believe some people here just want to have everything for free and it must be good otherwise complaints are mostly very cruel and unfair to the developer of this great tool -> blackra1n. (thank you geohot) i used it on a few iphones and had no problem so far. for my friends ipod 3g MC its not possible AT THE MOMENT, to reboot it without make it ra1n.

    to all who complained, restore it to original firmware and use it as a normal ipod and shut up. if you didnt inform yourself what is possible at the moment, then its your own fault. i convinced my friend to keep it jbroken, because the possibilities are really cool when its free.

    PLEASE A BIT MORE RESPECT FOR THE DEVELOPERS. THEY MAKE A GREAT WORK FOR THE PUBLIC.

    You should try it doe without (run it under mode xp) it worked for me (ive vista)succes

  • ben

    can you get itunes apps for free too?

  • Garrett

    Okay maybe its just because I’m a noob. But I have an iPod touch 3g and using 3.1.2 firmware. When I run blackra1n on my windows xp it didn’t worked the first time so I ran it again like it well I say the picture on my ipod like it said but then iTunes popped and up and said something about my ipod being in recovery mode and it would have to be restored to factory settings. So my question is: IS THIS NORMAL? Do I just need to leave my ipod alone and let it “reboot.” I’m new to this whole thing so work with me. Any advice? Email: Garrett059@hotmail.com or reply on this thing I guess, I’ll keep checking periodically through out the night.

  • Decho96

    NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Whenever i download blackra1n it works… but then the wait to reboot thing comes up and nothing happens.
    i have a 3rd gen ipod touch
    HelP PLZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • Zoner

    I have tried this procedure on 2 Ipod touch Gen 2’s, and both experience the same probelm.

    After the jailbreak, everything is working great – Cydia working, etc.

    A few days later, the ipods were turned on an the ‘Connect to ituens’ logos appeared. Had to do a full restore to factory settings. IF anyone knows why this would happen, please comment. Otherwise, perhaps I’ll try the Sn0wbreeze method.

  • BOBBYBOY

    i have downlaoded it how do i get the free stuff now?

  • facu1000

    Hi,
    I had my Itouch 2G already jailbreaked with the firmware 3.0, but I decided to restore, update it to 3.1.2, and jailbreak it again. The thing is, that everything worked according to the “guide” and I can install cydia andstuff like that, but there is no way to add the cracked ipas that I had before. Is that normal??, or am I missing something in the process.
    Thanks

  • facu1000

    Hi, I’ve solved the problem I posted before, I just followed some instructions posted in this forum, which worked perfectly:

    @ SAFAD,
    Found this via Google, not sure if it will work for you.

    Open Cydia > Manage > Sources > Edit
    Add source “http://cydia.hackulo.us” cant post links >. Hackulo.us > “AppSync for OS3.0″ > Read info
    Install > done

  • jabman

    Was having problems with this also. Using Vista Home Premium SP2 32bit. Kept getting stuck at “entering recovery” & “connect to itunes” on ipod touch 3g. Followed the instructions exactly, but it kept happening. So I decided to not follow the instructions. What solved the problem for me was NOT running the program in WinXP Compatibility Mode! Once I bypassed that, the jailbreak was easy. Hope this helps someone else out there who what as frustrated as I was. Cheers.

  • Auzzy

    Hey i jailbroke my ipod touch but when i go to get a game that costs money, it stil does.. but it said it would all be free..(the games)

  • Arron

    Okay. So today my brother bought an iPod Touch from Walmart. I THINK it is a 3gen but I don’t know how to tell. I am assuming it is though.

    I use blackra1n to jailbreak it. *Note: I have jailbroken both mine and my girlfriends iTouchs with blackra1n without issue. Anyways, I clicked make it ra1n, waited, and saw the splash screen on the ipod. blackra1n said “Wait for reboot” or something. The ipod turned off and sat there. I figured it was done and unplugged it. I attempted to turn it on and it didn’t turn on. Screen does nothing.

    So, I plug it in to my computer. iTunes tells me it found an ipod in Recovery mode and I have to restore it. I attempted to exit recovery mode on ipod by holding Home + Power buttons at the same time and nothing happened. Sat there for 2 mins. Nothing. So I figured I would just restore it. When I attempt to restore it, I get either 1604 or 1600 errors every time. Tried every USB port on 3 computers, Restarting, re-installing iTunes, running blackra1n again, everything. My iPod will absolutely not do ANYTHING. I need help. I screwed up my brothers ipod he just bought today.

    • bob

      plug in ur cable to the ipod but not into the computer then hold down the home button then about 2 seconds after that plug the other end of the wire into the computer, it worked for me

  • alex

  • Sam

    • jlz

      haha you got the most annoying problem. go to cydia, manage, sources, edit, add cydia.pushfix.info, and youtube fix #3

  • R4 Card

    Hey, the solution is… BECAUSE It is a TETHERED jailbreak… YOU HAVE to have it connected to your PC or MAC, and then once you see that it is still on the itune and USB cable DFU mode… then just runra1n again, and it will boot up and you will see blackra1n there.

    i have just jailbraek my ipod touch 3g 3.1.2 but i want to download some apps butt which program do i need for that

    • Anthony

      you have to open up cydia/rock (whichever you downloaded) then go to manage then sources. click add source. then type in cydia.hackulo.us. once u did tht then go to the search tab and type in installous. install that then open it up. if there is a toll bridge than the answer is cavern. once that is done then all you need to do is search for one or type in a name of an app and install it. sounds complicated but its not

    once this has been added click on Fishbone. scroll down and find “Push Notification fix” click install.
    to get apps for free, you need to go to cydia, manage, sorces as above then add : “http://cydia.hackulo.us” when this is installed , click it and search or installous and install. :)

    after i “Make it Rain” my ipod touch 3.1.2 (8g) goes to a screen showing an itunes icon and a wire and wont let me access it until i restart the ipod and Blackrain doesn’t work. how do i get past this problem?

    • Keith

      hey matt, that happened to me too, it kind of sucks, but its really simple… all u have to do is hold the home and power button untill it turns off… then connect it to ur computer and u’ll have to restore your ipod. try the make it ra1n after that and it should work

      • Keith

        when u try it again make sure u click download instead of run and then click open folder and when u open it right click on its name and click properties and go to compatability and check run this compatabillity to windows xp and then click ok and then double click it and runn it

    • berbertov

      i had the same problem, please help!!!

      • Leaf(:

        To reboot you just press the hold button and home button at the same time for like 15 secs, let go of the hold button but keep pressing the home button for like 8 secs and wait for the apple sign to come on.

  • lindsey

    every time i jail break it i will do everything that i want done to it then when i plug it in or shut it off and turn i back on it goes into recovery mode.. how do i keep it jailbroken with out having to lose all my stuff eveytime i plug it in??

    • Shaymen

      this is ordinary activity… you should not lose anything when u replug it, simply jail break. i have had to do this several times but its worth it… and i dont see the reason to turn it off if u charge it

  • Todd

    This may be a scam … like the others that wrote I downloaded br to my ipod touch 3.1.2 and now nothing works … everytime I turn it on it shows the cable and itunes icon and I had to restore the ipod… now I have firmware 3.1.3 which you get automatically from itunes when you restore … if I did something wrong let me know, but others trying this, beware.

    • It’s NOT a scam. If it doesn’t work for you, don’t use it. But don’t spread misinformation.

    relax Imran … as you can see it’s not working for a lot of people … I did see on youtube someone who was jailbreaking his ipod touch and it was a MA model and he made a point of saying it was a MA not a MC model … mine is a MC, maybe that’s the problem.

  • jp

  • Todd

    Is there a way to jailbreak a MC model ipod touch … either a 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 firmware?

  • AJ

    The blackra1n on my computer wont stop saying “done, wait for reboot.” I’ve rebooted it a thousand times and now I don’t know what to do because the “done, wait for reboot” message wont go away.

    Help?

    • jeremy lam

      you can tell if it is a mc or ma goo to settings and click about and it should say model. from there you should find model and it will say model ms or ma

  • Redcafe

    Nope

  • Shaymen

    if your jailbreaking takes more than 1 minute and is stuck on recovery mode. do what i did

    first-unplug ur ipod and turn it off by holding the power button
    second-restart your computer
    third-reinstall darkra1n
    fourth-just as you run it, reconnect your ipod and it should work

    • Shaymen

      y do u want to restore?

  • Frankie

    WILL “blackra1n” WORK ON 3.13?!?! SOMEBODY PLEASE ANSWER BECAUSE IT’S NOT WORKING FOR ME! I connect my iPod, select “Make it ra1n” and it works, then it says “Done, wait for reboot!” So I did what the one guy said, and held the home and the hold thingy buttons for 15 seconds, then just the home for 8, and all my apps appear again. But “blackra1n” isn’t on there…HELP!

    • Shaymen

      no… havent u read anything? it DOESNT work on 3.1.3

  • max

    it got stuck when it got to the connect to itunes part and i couldn’t get psat that. help!

    • Shaymen

      redownload blackra1n and disconnect your ipod from the computer before turning it off..
      just as you run ur redownloaded blackra1n reconnect your ipod and it should work

  • justin

    i have an ipod touch 2g 3.1.3 firmwire and i plug it in doesnt work it just restore my ipod thats it

  • tom

    is it teathered on the 3g 3.1.1
    (can i turn it off off)

  • david316

    so it works for ipod touch 3rd gens right

  • MC model can be jailbroken.. i can see how the itunes cable symbol is a problem, what you have to do is follow the steps like Geohotz said, download blackra1n, download cydia, etc. then go into cydia, set hacker, complete upgrade, download any them in sections, and when it says reboot device, dont reboot just yet, plug into your computer, go to http://www.blackra1n.com then reboot your ipod.. when you see the itunes cord, re-run your jailbreak through windows, or Mac depending on what you have, then there you go(: if your ipod does happen to die or mess up, you dont have to restore it, re jailbreak it and everything will be there. this works for all ipod touch and iphone 3.1.2. and for 3.1.3, ipod touch 1-2nd gen and iphone 3rd gen and 3gs. not ipod touch 3rd gen just yet for 3.1.3.

  • TJ

  • Ipod Toucher

    Hi guys, maybe a silly question… but im clueless.

    I had the ipod touch 3g 32gb originally on 3.1
    Purchased the 3.1.2 upgrade through itunes, then jailbroken it.. worked like magic… Dropped it in alcohol a few parties ago :) and since then i bought a new one. The new one was 3.1 again, i jailbroke it witouht doing the 3.1.2 upgrade, so after this long boring story, my question is this:
    Am i still able to somehow upgrade to the 3.1.2 then jailbreak that? or am i stuck because itunes no longer digitally sign/approve that fw?

  • Chri$

    Wow, this is so tempting but after half of the people here saying they’ve had problems I’m having second thoughts.
    3.1.2 (7DLL)

    Will it work?

  • vijok

    hey i am vijok from netherlands
    I had my ipod jailbreak
    After few days, cydia on my ipod way
    When I restore my ipod touch via itunes
    Then I tried again to jailbreak but could not
    I always tried to jailbreak with itunes but then it was successful in jailbreak is then to reboot it at itunes

    itunes has detected an iPod which the repair mode. You must restore this iPod before you can use with itunes

    what should I do now can you help

    • Ipod Toucher

      After you get it jailbroken, and the ipod touch gets rebooted, you will have use blackra1n once more because this jailbreak is teathered.. meaning on everytime your ipod/iphone needs to shutdown/reboot, its going to be on the restore mode (the itunes logo with the usb connection on the screen)… simply connect it up to blackra1n once more, jailbreak it.. and it should be fine..

  • Ccf

    I am scared to UAE it because people are saying differnt thing bout it.

    • hihihihihi

      i am scared to download blackra1n because i dont know if it is illegal or legal.

  • Clint Vaughan

    wow… thats all i have to say, ive done many jailbreaks before, but this one is just.. wow, you didnt have to reload all your music you didnt have to re-download all your apps, you didnt even have to wait to download an ipod os. bravo…

  • MEME

    Ok, so I have done this Jailbreak thing on my macbook… I have the 64 gig ipod touch 3rd generation and once i downloaded the blackrain and i clicked make it rain, my ipod displayed the apple symbol and is now on a blank screen. It is lit up but a blank screen. How do I fix this? I have done this many times and nothing…… Should I forcibly reboot my ipod becase blackra1n is telling me that i have to “wait for reboot” but it’s taking forever…

    • mtipsy

      ya same here… i have a 3g 32gb and ive had a blank screen for like 10min now..

      • MEME

        This really sucks cuz now when I restored my ipod I had not synced so I am missing $15 worth of apps. I have the receipt by email though…. What do you think I should do? It’s not on my computer or ipod and in the app store it says to buy all the apps… I already bought them though!!! XO

    Is there any way to solve this problem, and if so how? Thanks!

    • next time don’t restore when it asks for it, just connect it to your computer and run blackra1n again.

  • Dalton Brady

    you should add that in order to downgrade to 3.1.2 from 3.1.3 like i had to you simply download the firmware then press shift+left button on mouse on the update button in itunes. this then opens it up for you to find the file you saved it in and use it to download the firmware. thank you very much for this guide. i now have a jailbroken 3.1.2 2nd gen ipod touch :) im very happy

      I tried that downgrade trick but it didn’t work. Every time I do it I just get the “This device isn’t eligible for this requested build” error. I was excited for a second when I read this, but now I’m back to patiently waiting for a jailbreak on the 3.1.3.

      If I hadn’t panicked in the first place when my power died and I was told to update, I wouldn’t have this problem. Oh well.

      • Fabian

        So where did you get the firmware for 3.1.2

        • chab

          try the 2g one …3g doesn’t work

  • Emmaismall

    I don’t understand how to use this. Do i get free apps at the app store or on cynthia?! so confused!!!!

    • sdgsgsgregrgergf

      In order to get free apps you have to download certain things from Cydia. If you search on Youtube there are many tutorials on how to get free apps once you jailbreak.

  • Matt

    i did everything this website said to do but it just says jailbreak complete & it doesnt work & the guys pic never comes up plz help!!!

    because i had it on 95 and i downloaded it twice and it didnt do anything then i downloaded it with 2000 and it made me whipe my touch clean…. or must i need windows XP?

  • brittanydarling

    wow. like thats the easy greatest jailbreaker ever.! great job. kudos.!

  • help

    wat do i do i did have it and there i resored now it say i have to make a donation to get it back

  • nitin

    everything went successful but when i switch off my itouch after jailbreak..it shows connect to itunes pls help.

    • sdgsgsgregrgergf

      You might have a newer model (MC). If so when you reboot you have to go through the jailbreak process each time you shut it off.

  • Kevez

    i just bought a new ipod touch 3rd gen 3.1.3 firmware can i downgrader to 3.1.2 to jailbreak it or does it need to have been on 3.1.2 before

  • gvfiaghvihj i flivbpdfgvbldkfhgvb

    how long does the reboot take?

  • Manne!!!!

    If you want a successful jailbreak with blackra1n on vista do not put in Compatibility because it will block it from working also unblock the app blackra1n from properties . And do not run as adminastrator. Because when I went to jailbreak my iPod touch 2g 3.1.2 and I put it in compatibility and ran as adminastrator and it did not work had to restore didn’t even see geohots face but I seen connect iTunes ubs cord then restored the I tried it again unchecked compatibility and didn’t run as adminastrator and it my iPod went to apple symbol then geohotz face appeared and it jailbroke. Try this if you have a vista and it’s not working for you .

  • chab

    doesn’t work the picture never show and itunes open saying that the ipod is in DFU mode. I don’t know why & please help!!!

  • veronica

    ok so i did everything it said and when it reboot
    i didnt have the icon thing

    • Jordan

      same thing happened to me

      • john

        same here i dont have no icon did i do it RIGHT???????

        • jillian

          same here,i have ipod 2g, whats a “non MC model”?

          • mike

            You dont really have to use blackra1n to jailbreak your 2G non-MC models because it wont be fully jailbroken so better to use Qucik Freedom it will fully jailbreak and its better for 2G users…

  • fabian

    i have downloaded blackrain fine but when i connect my itouch the computer itunes says it has detected something wrong and it make me reboot. how can i prevent this?? help!

  • Didn’t work for me. Says “error in connection” or something like that.
    I used the usb cable, everything worked ok, hit the blackrain ap logo and that’s what it said.
    Supposed to be only wifi internet connection? As usual, limited and ignorant instructions written by techies with no common sense.

  • man

    Dear Blackra1n creaters,
    I updated my third generation itouch was upgraded to the OS version 3.1.3 but now I found out about jailbreaking. I’ve tried to down grade my itouch to 3.1.2 but I messed up so it’s still 3.1.3. Please inform me when you create the 3.1.3 jailbreak for the third generation itouch. Thanks for createing blackra1n (which in my opinion is the best jailbreaking system) I appreciate how you made the blackra1n application on the itouch. By!

      then install “Installous”
      you can find most itunes paid apps using this app.

  • idunnolol

    THIS WILL ONLY WORK WITH 3.1.2 NOT 3.1.3!
    1: DOWNLOAD THE RESTORE FILE HERE http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/(TAKES A WHILE).
    2: OPEN ITUNES THEN SELECT YOUR IPOD.
    3: HOLD SHIFT AND CLICK “RESTORE”
    4: SELECT THE FILE YOU JUST DOWNLOADED
    5: YOU ARE NOW IN 3.1.2 AND CAN JAILBREAK!

    • idunnolol

      Sorry, take out the “(TAKES” of the URL forgot the space ^_^

  • Shibu Ravi

  • Hoseq

    3.1.2 Broken and sprung, 5 minutes. Thanks. Didnt have to open itunes or anything just download, open Blackrain, connect ipod, click on Blackrain, and afterward choose options. EASY.

  • rdigital

    why when my ipod die all my music and apps i downloaded delete.

  • Zach

    If it didn’t work, make sure your ipod touch is running the correct software of firmware. For it to work is MUST be running on version 3.1.2. If it is older or newer than this you must download version 3.1.2 on the internet because it is not available through iTunes anymore (due to newer versions) Hope that helps some of you. If it didn’t make sure you downloaded it correctly

  • Harvey Diamond

    Just tried te jailbreak and it’s been working for 25 minutes. How long does it take. I downgraded to 3.1.2 and put black ra1n in windows xp mode cuz i’m running windows vista.

  • Smajor

    uhhh. will this work for the ipod touch 3g 32gb?

    • Harkuss

      I have the iPod touch 3g 32gb as well but I still have the 3.1.2 software and blackra1n works fine except every time you turn it off, when you want to turn it on again or if you reboot it, the screen will have an iTunes icon and a USB cord pop up (basically apple’s way of trying to fight jailbreaking by trying to get them to restore your iPod but it will take a lot more than that) and you have to rejailbreak it (or “make it ra1n”) again everytime you turn it off. It doesn’t bother me that much because I just never turn it off. I just lock it and it goes into standby. However, I think doing that will deterriorate the battery a little faster. I don’t see any need for the 3.1.3 update and nor do I know how it will affect the Blackra1n jailbreak. The jailbreak is completely worth some of the slight problems with it instead of paying hundreds of dollars on apps. And by the way the MMS Flip from cydia messes up your AppStore. And I forgot to mention that the reboot problem with the jailbreak only exists on the iPod touch 3g and problably future generations.

      • cassie

        Hi, I have the same model with you but today the ipod just suddenly in restore mode. I try to jailbreak again but this time fail! :( Any idea?

    Blackra1n works fine, its not hard just be patient and wait until the device reboots, it IS TETHERED for Itouch 3G, dont just unplug the device if it doesnt reboot from blackra1n immediately, just wait a minute and let it load.

    Hello everybody,

    I’d like to know if it’s possible to jailbreak an
    iPod Touch 3g.
    If it’s possible do I have to use this program, or is there another program that I’ve to use?

    Thank You

    • Temptation

      You can do it using this program, but the jailbreak will be tethered, and you will have to run blackra1n every time you turn off your iPod or restart it. Sorry bro

  • bro

    When i downloaded black rain it says “this application has failed to start because ASL.dll was not found. Re-installing the app may fix probelm.” reinstalling didnt help tho…. this is for windows version

  • Marc

    I jailbroke my ipod touch. It all works well, except for when I switch my ipod off and then on again. Once the ipod has restarted again, it says it needs to be plugged into the usb for itunes (the same as when you first use the ipod). I ran blackrain again and it works. How can I resolve this issue so that I do not need to plug it into my computer everytime I switch it on again?
    Thank you very much.

  • anthony wilson

    does it really work??

  • Kelseey White

    I need help, I’m running Windows 7 32-bit. And I did everything that is explained in this post. But when I click on the program Blackrain a window pops up and says “The program can’t start because ASL.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.” How can I fix this? Of course the program opens after that, but when I click on “Make it rain” windows says that the program has stopped working. Please help :(

    I did downgrade my ipod to 3.1.2 so I think I would have no problem. It’s probably just my PC

    @jessi i have the exact same problem where “The program can’t start because ASL.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.” message comes up ….then the program opens after that, but when I click on “Make it rain” windows says that the program has stopped working….except my ipod is still on the 3.1.3 firmware

  • kimmy

    so is the blackra1n link damaged/corrupt or missing files cause its pretty suspicious thats the case since the “ASL.dll is missing” error message shows up….and that shouldnt have anything to do with the firmware version being wrong since its opening up the program…

    someone help!!!
