BlackRa1n Jailbreaking Guide
1. Visit http://www.blackra1n.com and click on windows icon under GeoHot’s picture (gotta admit the whole picture thing is creepy)
2. Accept all the download prompts and start blackra1n.exe after download, it’s not a virus
3. Assuming that your iPhone is on 3.1.2 iPhone firmware, just click on “make it ra1n” button
4. Wait for the process to finish, you should see grayed out button “done, wait for reboot”
5. During reboot you will see GeoHot’s picture again, wait for iPhone spring board to appear.
if BlackRa1n jailbreak was successful, you will see blackrai1n icon.
6. Launch blackra1n if you like to instal Cydia, Rock or Icy
7. For example: if you selected Cydia install you will see download progress bar.
8. After Cydia installation, you should see Cydia icon
