    AJ and others with WI FI problems

    Those of you who are having issues with WiFi after jailbreaking and unlocking with blackra1n RC3 (with blacksn0w) should reset network settings by navigating to Settings –> General –> Reset –> Reset Network Settings and then reboot the iPhone.

  • gargi

    after the jailbreak i can’t reboot my iphone 3gs. if i reboot it i must connet with itune.my wifi don’t works!?
    thx

  • eyecoin

    Tom P.

    If you have a 3G I am sure you can. Just restore to 3.1.2 and use blackra1n to re-jailbreak and then unlock it when it’s installed in your new jailbroken phone.

    I have jailbroked and unlocked 3 in the last few days including 2 that were already jailbroken and unlocked with older Operating Systems.

  • gargi

    i have buy a new one 3gs with the firmware 3.1.2.after the jailbreak with blackra1 i have problem with the reboot.if i reboot mi iphone i have the symbol for connecting with itunes. i need help!?

  • eyecoin

    GARGI

    you are supposed to be connected with iTunes, then after reboot you will have blackra1n inside your phone. use that to unlock.

    until here cannot resolve the problem after restart still in dfu ( itunes n cable )

  • http://iphone.cymaho.com cymaho

    If your ipt2/3GS/ipt3 is rebooting into recovery after running blackra1n, this isn’t a bug. It’s a feature. You need to run blackra1n every time to boot it. This ‘feature’, called tethered jailbreak, is enabled by upgrades Apple made to the bootrom and the fact ipt3 uses nand flash. …..say geohot
    Solved

  • ozgur

    can’t reboot after jailbreak.

    If I have to use blackra1n o reboot my phone every time then thats stupid, if I have to reboot my iphone away from my laptop how on earth am I going to use my phone, this is nuts

  • alun

    So if i install snow on my iphone, i can reboot the phone without restoring it via itunes?

  • George Manousakis

    Guys i have the same problem after jailbreaking my 3gs iphone.When i reboot i instantly go into DFU mode.I am using the first version of blackra1n cause my phone is already unlocked.What do i do?Thanks.

  • GEOM

    I have the same problem with everyone that talked about rebooting the 3gs.i cnnot do it away from my laptop cause i go into recovery straight away.There has to be a solution!if my battery dies on me i have the same problem.please advice!thanks!

  • Roshan Amadoru

    Works like a charm.. Awsome stuff!!! I dont see any problem with this at all. I’ve unlocked a iphone 3gs 3.1.2 with 5.11.17 baseband.

  • Katherine

    For the iphone 3G S when you unlocked the phone you must keep the battery full at all time cuz if the phone is out of battery it will ask you to plug in with itunes. Don’t worry just ignore that screen. All you need to do is plug the phone in and open Blackra1n it will reboot the iphone for you. Apple recently had changed the bootrom on all new iphones and right now the only way reboot the iphone is to connect it with Blackra1n. During the reboot make sure itunes is closed.

  • Myo Min Oo

    hello guys. i also same problem. after jailbreak i need to plug when i everytime reboot. After reboot also my wifi can’t use.
    I need to use purplera1n for 3GS or some solution

  • John O’Keefe

    Hi All,

    After unlocking my iPhone 3gs with Blackra1n, the ONLY problem I have is that I have to reset network settings and then reboot my iPhone DAILY, in order to get a wifi connection.
    Is this a problem with you guys after unlocking with Blackra1n ?
    From what I’ve read, some indicate its just a one time reset.

    John

  • X

    IF YOU ALREADY HAVE 3.1.2 AND 5.1 MODEM FILE, YOUR SCREWED AS THE CARRIER MODEM FILE IS BLOCKING BLACKRAIN UPON REBOOT OF CYDIA OR ROCK APP INSTALL, YOU CAN JUST NOT DO RAIN OR CYDIA AND YOU WILL BE BROKENM, BUT FIRST TIME YOU POWER CYCLE THE PHONE YOUR JACKED UP AND WILL NEED TO HOOK UP TO ITUNES AND RESTORE YOUR PHONE TO ORIGINAL…

  • Ali

  • william mac

    my iphone 3gs needs to run blackra1 everytime i boot will there be a fix for this?

  • BA

    I’ve been jailbreaking iphones for some time now. Many in fact. Recently someone brought me their new purchase of 3gs on January 15th 2010. It was a bugger to jailbreak. I had to repeat over and over and of course, ran into the reboot problem everyone is having. BUT I had another problem that seemed odd. I had a wifi connection, but no phone connection. I rejailbroke though I didn’t do a restore(I had gotten this phone tweaked to perfection).I did the network resets, etc. Nothing fixed it. It’s not uncommon to have to run blackra1n a number of times to get it there. BUT no phone signal but wifi signal. Search internet. FINALLY came across blackweather, ran it, and whala! Signal.
    But don’t let it reboot till Geohot comes out with something.
    Thanks George!

    And it’s AT&T carrier.

  • Geom

    For those with rebooting problems.I got this answer from another blog.This means you got one of the very latest iPhone/iTouch from Apple with iBoot version 359.3. Somwhere in October, Apple started shipping iPhones with this new version.

    Because of the new bootloader blackra1n can only applies a tethered jailbreak to your device meaning every time you restart of shutdown it will go into recovery mode and
    blackra1n must be ran again to get it past the Apple logo boot screen.

    Your phone will not lose its jailbreak, and all customizations will be preserved, but the phone will not be able to boot past the Apple logo screen on its own.i hope this helped!so,basically we have to wait for a solution!

  • i keel u

    Those guys who made this jailbreak should start to do something, if they are making something like this than they should test it properly not give it to us when it’s still raw, they made my phone useless
