blackra1n Jailbreak Released

##ICON_NAME## A few days ago we told you about GoeHot and that he had found a jailbreak, which he is calling blackra1n, that would work on all devices. Well, last night, he released the jailbreak.

There are a few things to note.

– The jailbreak is for Windows users only. No Mac version yet.

– blackra1n does not hactivate your iPhone (fake activate it). So, in order to use this jailbreak you will need to have an iPhone on an official carrier.

– 3G and 3GS unlockers “do not upgrade to 3.1.2 using iTunes if you want to keep your unlock. Baseband cannot be downgraded. Check out the dev team’s offerings.”

– blackra1n does jailbreak the third generation iPod touch however, it is a tether jailbreak. ” In order to boot it, just rerun blackra1n.”

– blackra1n should work on devices using firmware 3.0 and up.

If you fit all those rules, you can get the jailbreak HERE. [Read more…]

I must say, I actually chose quite a few of these options. One of the options that was a little low on the list but, I would love to see, is an OLED screen. Probably not going to happen but, a girl’s got to dream. I think we will definitely see More Storage, Faster Processor, More RAM and a 3.2 Megapixel Camera. I would love to see Video Recording, Longer Battery Life, Video Messaging and OLED Screen. I’m not even going to guess on the cosmetic change. I hear it is going to be a big WWDC so, maybe we will see quite a few of these new features! Though, I try not to get my hopes up…it makes the disappointment easier to take! [Read more…]
