Yesterday we wrote about the latest iPhone Jailbreak tool from Geohot for Windows that will jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch, Blackra1n.
I thought it would be useful to our readers if we put together a short guide on how to use Blackra1n to Jailbreak your iPhone.
First off if you want your iPhone to be unlocked to use with another carrier, don’t upgrade to 3.1.2 and do not use Blackra1n to jailbreak your iPhone as you wont be able to unlock it from your carrier.
The first thing you will need to do is download the Blackra1n.exe file, this can be downloaded from the Blackra1n website link below.
One you have downloaded Blackra1n connect your iPhone to your PC and click on the Blackra1n.exe icon, next click ‘make it rain’.
Blackra1n will start running, and your iPhone will then enter recovery mode.
Once it is done your iPhone will reboot and you will now have a blackra1n icon on your iPhone home screen, when you launch the icon you will get a menu which will show you an available list of installers including, Cydia, Rock and Icy.
This is bar far the easiest iPhone jailbreak we have used to date, head on over to Blackra1n for more details and to download the app.
I tested Blackra1n on an iPhone 2G and 3G, both of which were running 3.1.2 and the jailbreak worked perfectly on both without any problems.
