Geohot Releases BlackSn0w: Free Solution to Unlock iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.1.2 and Baseband 05.11.07

New Geohot jailbreak update to jailbreak via baseband unlocking

Geohot has released blacksn0w to unlock iPhone running iPhone OS 3.1.2 and baseband 05.11.07.

Along with blacksn0w, Geohot is also releasing sa new version of his popular and extremely simple iPhone jailbreaking tool blackra1n RC3, with hactivation support, 15 second speed improvement, Tiger+PPC support, and installation of the latest

He has provided the following details on his blog for users who have already used blackra1n to jailbreak their iPhone:

If you are a loyal blackra1n user who kept the on your iPhone, run it. You will see Icy replaced by an option "ra1n". Install this to upgrade your app. After upgrading, run again. You will see "sn0w". Install this, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone.

If you’re planning to unlock your iPhone for the first time then he has the following instructions for you:

If you are new to the scene, just looking for an unlock, finally ready to upgrade to 3.1.2 and the accompanying baseband, willing to restore for the latest and greatest, or stuck on the "Connect to iTunes" screen, you are in luck. Jailbreaking and unlocking have never been easier. Go to, click on the logo corresponding to your operating system, run the app, and click "make it ra1n". When your phone reboots, you'll see Run this, install blacksn0w, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone.

He also plans to release blacksn0w via Cydia so you can install it if you have jailbroken your iPhone using PwnageTool.

If you jailbroke using pwnage or deleted your, you are in luck too. Sometime later in the sn0wday, blacksn0w will be added to Cydia.

Blacksn0w will unlock iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, if you are an iPhone 2G user then Geohot has provided the following instructions:

If you are on a 2G iPhone, blacksn0w isn't an option for you. But BootNeuter is, a completely free permanent unlock for your 2G. Of course, blackra1n will work great, and even hacktivate for you.

Geohot recommends:

Clean firmware 3.1.2 and baseband 05.11.07 are recommended.

You can install blacksn0w on your iPhone to unlock it using  blackra1n. You can download the latest version of blackra1n from this link.


Geohot has also release blacksn0w via Cydia. To install it on your iPhone, add as repository.

Please remember hacking your iPhone could void its warranty. So please proceed with caution and at your own risk. It is always a good idea to take a backup of your iPhone before you hack it, refer to this post for more details.

If the solutions works for you, don’t forget to drop over at the blackra1n’s website to give Geohot a donation for all his hard work.

As always, if you give it a shot let us know how it goes.

    Nice. Just ran the blackrain App on my phone and did everything. Fully unlocked phone, Sweet!.

    My question is how do I switch carriers now with my phone? I want to switch to Verizon. Do I just walk in with my iPhone?

  • kevin

    The iPhone CANNOT work on Verizon because they are not hardware/network compatible.

  • Works like a charm! thank you very much Geohot!

  • rolisqo

  • Moonwolf

    Great job and so fast, need to donate when got some spare money to give.

  • dan

    Many thanks to Geohot for looking out for us all. My only question is with this latest breakthrough, is it now OK (intentional or unintentional)to update to Apple's latest firmware via itunes, known very well that such an update would change the phone's baseband to 05.11.07?

  • Syldaril

    Worked well on 3GS (3.1.2), but like many others wi-fi no longer works! A solution would be much appreciated!

  • victor

    awesome work geohot.your a genius!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Paul

    Thanks so so much. I ahve donated a little but donate more when the funds improve. Worked a dream. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!


    Thank you! T-mobile works but have lost Wifi! 🙁

  • Kha….
    If you don't have MMS enable and want it? YES do it…
    First connect you iPhone to itunes and update to 3.1.2, then run Blackra1n… and let it run… after 15 seconds aprox… you;ll have a Jailbroken iPhone.
    Then you'll see a in your iPhone, run it and you'll see 3 options to install: Cydia, ROCK, and Snow.
    Make sure that u write down the repositories and packages that u have in Cydia, coz u might loose them after u start the Jailbreak process.
    If u want to UNLOCK your phone run SNOW from the blackra1n menu.
    So far I did it on 4 phone and the Jailbreak process worked like a charm…
    Thanks to geohot!!!

  • I got this from geohot's blog… hopefully it will help you…
    for people having wifi issues, i've heard a "
    "Reset Network Settings" fixes them"

  • Ian

    Im confused. Before it was bad to upgrade to 3.1.2 because it upgraded the baseband. Now that they made a new jailbreak it's okay to upgrade? Doesn't make sense, the baseband is still being upgraded.

    AFAIK pwnagetool made the custom IPSW that didn't upgrade the baseband.

  • smd

    hey guys does this work for any BOOTLOADER AND BASEBAND combo? i believe i have fw 3.1.2, bootloadar 06.04 and baseband 5.11.07. should i try? yes? no?

  • kevin

    Ok…little problem here.

    I used blackra1n to jailbreak, blacksn0w to unlock. everything was perfect at first..
    then comes the problem..

    reception is low-to-none.

    i've tried turning on airplane mode then off..
    3g on then off..
    data roaming on then off..
    reset network settings..
    power off then on..

    still..reception is usually none. it pretty much lives in "no service"

    does anyone have any suggestions?

    Here is a great web site with tutorial on jailbreaking and unlocking using blackra1n RC3:
    For those with updated iPhones but old firmware xx.xx.08 >>> I have a 3g 3.1.2 with an old firmware xx.xx.08, I downgraded it to 3.0.1 and then updated it to 3.1.2 with new firmware xx.xx.07 via iTunes. Since many complained about network connection I did reset it right away and my iPhone works great.
    I was a little nervous in the process but in the end it was worth it.

I tried the reset network thing several times and even tried to do repeat the same jailbreak and unlock process on the wifi problematic iphone, but no luck.

  • nl393a

    I do not have internet at home (my internet connection is through tethering on my iphone). If I upgrade to os 3.1.2, will I be able to download blackra1n (remember, I have no internet connection at home)? In other words – will my phone still be "jailbroken" after the 3.1.2 upgrade? Thank you.


    Hi Amir, I have tried the same instructions you provided and I am still running into same issue, i.e. when the phone going into recovery mode when it is rebooted. I had to use either itunes to restore 3.1.2 OR blackra1n to reboot it to restart the phone. Below are the steps I have followed to jailbreak/unlock it. please advice if I am doing anything wrong.
    1) ran blackra1n.exe to jailbreak iPhone.
    2) full resync with iTunes.
    3) restarted the iPhone.
    ===> went into recovery mode. used blackra1n.exe to reboot the phone again.
    4) installed the blackra1n app on iPhone to unlock it.
    5) restarted the iPhone and it went into recovery mode..

    no luck in my case. Please advice. Thanks,Krishna

My phone is factory unlocked, purchased in apple store in Hong Kong and so once it resets, a screen in Itunes displays a congratulations message and states that my phone is unlocked, and then permits me to sync. However Blackra1n icon is not present, and phone is not jailbroken. Any advice?

    To all people having problems with blackra1n not booting your 3GS, YOU HAVE A NEW iBOOT. Everytime you restart your phone, it will appear in recovery, you need to plug into PC and run blackra1n again to boot up. This is for most 3GS bought in the last couple months.

    Hi, my problem is when I used pwnage on 3.0 to JB I have a copy of Tom Tom app and Monopoly app which worked. After stupidly upgrading to 3.1.2 I used Geohots Blackra1n and JB and unlocked with no problems, everything works except Tom Tom app and the Monopoly app, any ideas would be most welcome, thanks in advance……..

  • Basil2

    Hi, if you are still stuck, connect your iphone and run blackra1n again, it worked for me.


  • Seriously Frustrated!

    I have a problem as many do.. My Iphone (non MC model) 3GS was initially JB & unlocked while in OS 3.1.2… Oops, I accidentally upgraded to OS 3.1.3 and now cannot figure out how to JB from here… Is it locked again? What program should I focus on using to JB it again…
