Tap this to install and upgrade your application. After you are done with upgrading, run blackra1n.app once again, install “sn0w" and enjoy your unlocked iPhone 3G/3GS.


· If by any means you’ve deleted the Blackra1n.app from your iPhone or you are on pwned iPhone then you are left with simply two options, wait for the Blacksn0w release on Cydia, or follow the following condition and do a clean install of 3.1.2.

Step by Step Guide to Jailbreak your iPhone

Step One. Download Blackra1n RC3 from the link provided above and launch the program.


For Windows 7 and Vista users if you face any issue while launching the Blackra1n RC3 software on your PC follow below mentioned instructions.

  • Right-click on the blackra1n icon (not the shortcut) and go to properties.
  • Select Compatibility tab, under compatibility mode check the box to enable the option and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2). Click OK, and then launch blackra1n.

Step Two. Connect your iPhone to your PC using cable and then click the make it ra1n button.


Step Three. Blackra1n will start its process in the background to jailbreak you device. For the purpose first your device will automatically be placed in recovery mode. Then you will see a picture of GeoHot that replaces the regular recovery mode screen on your device.

Step Four. Your iPhone or iPod Touch will automatically reboot itself once blackra1n is done. After reboot you should see the blackra1n icon on you springboard. If you don’t see it on the first page, go to the last page on your iDevice and you should see blackra1n icon there.


Step Five. Tap on blackra1n icon from your springboard and there you’ll have the option to install Cydia, Rock and Sn0w. My recommendation is that you do not install them all at once, because that may cause problems. Install them one at a time then reboot and then second one starting with Sn0w.


Step Six. After installing Sn0w you’ll get your device unlocked. Just hit the sn0w button and the magic will happen itself. Here you go, enjoy any operator’s SIM card on your unlocked iPhone 3G/3GS with baseband 5.11.07
