How To Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.2 Firmware with blackra1n RC3

Blackra1n RC3 is by far the fastest and the most complete jailbreaking and unlocking tool for iPhone running on the latest iPhone 3.1.2 firmware. The latest RC3 version includes blacksn0w which can unlock iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS running 05.11.07 baseband. When iPhone 3.1.x firmware was released, Apple patched the exploit that allowed iPhone users to unlock iPhone’s.

As a result, many users who upgraded to the latest firmware were left locked out with 05.11.07 baseband until geohot came to the rescue. Follow the simple step-by-step guide below to jailbreak all iPhone’s (2G/3G/3GS) and iPod touches (1G/2G/3G) on firmware 3.1.2.
