    I've looked over other thread but as of yet have not found a solution to my problem. I just got a 64gb touch its running 3.1.2 so i want to JB it. But after i click the "make it rain" in goes into recovery mode the cable and itunes thingy on the device' screen and stays like that nothing happens so i have to restore it to get it out of the recovery mode... im running Vista 64 bit and i opened blackra1n as Administrator and in compatibility mode Xp sp2....i have no idea what im doing wrong or why its not working. I was just hoping someone could shed some light on whats happening before i give up.
    (first time jailbreaking)

    oh and sorry if im not posting in the right place.

    you have to make it ra1n again. the ipod touch3g since its tethered requires you to push make it rain once to jailbreak and once to boot. after you fist jailbreak you only need to do it one to boot if it ever gets turned off.

    You searched right?
    Most likely all the answers can be found here, or here.
    And make sure you run it twice like kevin said.

    Good Luck!!

    yeah i dunno nothings helping....i read somewhere here that if you power off your device and disconnect then run the JB and after connect the device it would be jailbroken successfully but that hasnt worked for me. well i guess ill just wait for the next jailbreak.. :'(

    i have the same device:

    before you jailbreak: MAKE SURE ITUNES AND ANYTHING APPLE IS CLOSED!

    Just close itunes and make it ra1n. It'll be in recovery mode so re-run blackra1n. Then your jailbroken. And if you have a passcode turn it off.

    Hopefully.
