    Ignore the restore prompt thats from iTunes, its trying to undo the jailbreak.

    Let Blackra1n run and then turn your phone on. open Blackra1n from the icon and DO NOT install Cydia and ICY together its a really, really bad marriage. Cydia works very well.

    If I were you I would start by restoring the iPhone from a freshly restarted computer (no garbage hanging in memory) Stop iTunes after the restore and then run Blackra1n.

    After the iPhones shuts down and Blackra1n says its finished turn on the phone and run Blackra1n from the icon. This has worked well for me.

    Hope that helps

    is your iphone 3g if so I had the hardest time using blackra1n
    not sure what steps i did got it to work but was up all night and this is what i did
    hope it helps i know blackra1n puts your iphone in dfu mode but for some reason it wasnt working until i manually did it

    what i did was
    complete restore . restart iphone delete blackra1n download it again restart pc.
    copy blackra1n to the c:drive when you run it right click it and run it as adminstrator
    but first follow steps 1,2
    1. disabled all virus protection and firewall
    2.turned iphone off and pluged it into pc
    3.start blackra1n " you will see waiting for iphone
    4.hold home and power [manually put in dfu mode]
    5. when you see apple release power keep holding the home button until you see
    George Hotz's picture then release home button
