Following up on the success of purplera1n, iPhone hacker extraordinaire geohot has released a jailbreak solution for OS 3.1.2 dubbed blackra1n. Currently only being offered to Windows users, blackra1n works on all generations of the iPhone and iPod touch, although the 3rd gen iPod touch needs to be tethered. The installation method for blackra1n is unchanged from that of its predecessor meaning that all you really have to do is download and install the app to your PC, plug in your device and make it ra1n. Good luck!
iPhone users should boot up their desktops / notebooks and fish out their USB cables because iPhone OS 3.1.2 has just gone live in iTunes. Other than restricting fixing random issues, Apple highlights the following as the three major changes:
• Resolves sporadic issue that may cause iPhone to not wake from sleep
• Resolves intermittent issue that may interrupt cellular network services until restart
• Fixes bug that could cause occasional crash during video streaming
We’re installing the new software on our entire iPhone armada and will report back if we find anything huge, but in the meantime, how about you guys let us know how the upgrade works out for you. Sound good?
UPDATE: Looks like there’s a carrier update as well which brings AT&T to 5.6.
