Jailbreak iPod touch 3.1.3

Written By Unknown on Tuesday, February 2, 2010 | 7:29 AM


Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.2

The iPhone 3.1.3 update that Apple released today required users of jailbroken iPhones or iPod Touches to wait for a new jailbreak software to be released before updating. This jailbreak is for 3.1.2 but may work for iPod touch 2G 3.1.3, iPod touch 3G 3.1.3, or iPod touch first generation.

If you want to just jailbreak iPod touch 3.1.3 you can try the old jailbreak and see if it works, if not then you will need to just wait for updates here.

  • iPod touch 3.1.3 download (iPod1,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw, 241 MB)

  • iPod touch 2g  3.1.3 download (iPod1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw, 242 MB)

  • iPhone 3g 3.1.3 download (iPod2,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw, 306 MB)

Note: Do no't use Safari to download iPhone 3.1.2 IPSW files, instead use another browser. Safari downloads this as a .ZIP and iTunes is not able to recognize the firmware that way.

Jailbreak iPod touch 3.1.3 with blackra1n

1. Download blackra1n
blackra1n 3.1.2 jailbreak - make it ra1n

2. Click the make it ra1n button.
blackra1n icon - iPhone 3.1.2 jailbreak

3. Your iPhone or iPod Touch will reboot once blackra1n is done doing it's thing and you should see the blackra1n icon on there. If you don't see the blackra1n icon, go to the last page on your iDevice and you should see it.
iPhone 3.1.2 jailbreak - select applications

4. Install your preferred aplication from the blackra1n app. You have the option of choosing Cydia, Icy, or Rock. I don't recommend you to install them all at once, because that may cause problems. Install them one at a time.

Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3 with PwnageTool

iPhone 3.1.2 jailbreak and unlock - Pwnage Tool 3.1.4

1. Download PwnageTool 3.1.4 (only works with Mac!)
PwnageTool for iPhone 3.1.2

2. You will be creating a custom IPSW and then restoring it through iTunes. If you don't know how to do that, read my jailbreak iPhone 3.1 with PwnageTool post which gives step by step instructions.

The iTouch 3.1.3 update is so annoying, I just jailbreaked 3.1.2 and have to do it again!

February 2, 2010 at 9:00 AM

February 2, 2010 at 12:00 PM

same, but how long does blackrain take to jailbreak the 3.1.3 firmware, my just stays at the itunes and usb plug screen

February 2, 2010 at 1:55 PM

U cannot jailbreak ipod with blackra1n if u have the new 3.1.3 version. The ipod will only stay in restore mode. wait for new jailbreak method

February 2, 2010 at 2:30 PM

i heard that geohot wont be makig another blackra1n for the new 3.1.3 version

February 2, 2010 at 5:28 PM

this is true. they are saving up for a huge jailbreak for the 4.0 ipod/iphone and ipad

February 2, 2010 at 11:43 PM

I think that is possibly more of a rumour than anything, i am sure Geohot wont give up like that, and i pretty sure he is possibly working on it as we speak right now.

February 3, 2010 at 2:36 AM

I have Jailbroken my ipod and downloaded GTA and stuff...
then I put it off..
when I put it on again it says I needed to connect with Itunes and said I needed to restore it!
now I've got 3.1.3 and can't jailbreak it any more!
What do I do???
wait for blackra1n???

February 3, 2010 at 4:58 AM

Am i able to jailbreak my iPod Touch (2g) 3.1.3 with Pwnage tool on my mac? Is it possible?

February 3, 2010 at 9:11 AM

do not use blackra1n for ipod jailbreak. it will say wait for reboot but wont unless u restore. wait for another jailbreak. i just lost my jailbreak.

February 3, 2010 at 11:01 AM

February 4, 2010 at 4:17 PM

February 5, 2010 at 6:48 PM


February 5, 2010 at 11:37 PM

Unless Apple was able to convince GeoHot to not jailbreak. Maybe he's now on their payroll.

February 6, 2010 at 12:31 AM

February 6, 2010 at 11:19 AM

F*ck man I lost all my apps!!!! This is soo stupid... I tried to jailbreak it again with blackrain nd it didn't work. When will I get my precious jailbroken apps back??? How long do you think it will take geohot to hack the 3.1.3 firmware ??? I'm sure he can do it because he hacked the ps3!!!

February 7, 2010 at 5:44 AM

is geohot going to make a hack for 3.1.3 for 3gs????
ive been tryin everything im tryin to use my 3gs for tmobile

February 8, 2010 at 12:39 AM

Me too. I upgrated to 3.1.3 n i lost everything. F@ck apple

February 8, 2010 at 8:02 AM

the ipod wont restor from theathered

February 8, 2010 at 9:24 AM

Hi I had installed 3.1.3 and was not able to jailbreak. But what i did was put my ipod touch in DFU mode. Downloaded 3.1.2. Opened itunes and when it recognised that the device was in DFU i clicked "SHIFT" Restore. I was then able to point to the 3.1.2 os and install it on my iPod. After it was completed i was back to 3.1.2 and have succesfully jailbroke my ipod. Never mind waiting for a new jailbreak that could take months

February 8, 2010 at 10:53 AM

firmware 3.1.3 blackrain jailbreak is coming out March 1st if u were wondering, can someone tell me how to hack PS3......

BANHAMMER 4 ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
February 8, 2010 at 11:30 AM

I'm confused. If I have firmware 2.2 and i want to update, will this allow me to update without loosing my jailbreak?(I used quickpwn for windows to jailbreak.) Also with my current firmware, some, not all, of my apps have ceased to function, thus sending my itouch into safe mode when i try to start them(they don't work in safe mode either.). Any idea how to fix this?

February 8, 2010 at 12:07 PM

your right i tried it right now after recovery mode it went black but it was on so i simply kept the power button pressed and i turned it back on and it was back

February 8, 2010 at 12:10 PM

well if u lost ur apps that u didnt get with cydia or watever u get them back for free like the paid ones "buy" them again then it will say u already bought it to et it for ffree press ok so u press ok and u get it for free and idk aought the jailbroken apps but hope i helped :)

February 10, 2010 at 3:28 AM

I hope blackra1n comes out to jailbreak 3.1.3, because I updated it and THEN tried to jailbreak it. DAMN!

February 10, 2010 at 7:29 AM

Yo with all due respect, plz make a jailbreak for 3.1.3! It feels like I've waited forever. I NEED my apps :) but seriously, I check this page everyday. Please upload one!!! O_O

February 10, 2010 at 10:12 AM

yes but you will just have to wait

February 10, 2010 at 11:54 PM

I need to jailbreak my iPod 3G 64GB 3.1.3 and I do not know how... A friend told me to look at this page, but I am starting to feel hopeless... Could you please let us know when and what options we have to jailbreak our devices?

February 11, 2010 at 2:18 AM

not to worry ipod touch 3.1.3 users, there is a way to downgrade your ipod touch to 3.1.2. 1st of all, you will need to download ipod touch 3.1.2 firmware and save it as .ipsw, 2nd. you will need to go to this link and follow the instructions in the video. i hope this helps you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn-dGztTKQg&feature=sub


February 11, 2010 at 4:34 AM

February 11, 2010 at 7:20 AM

February 11, 2010 at 2:50 PM

February 12, 2010 at 11:40 AM

Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3/iPod Touch 3.1.3 is now possible, thanks to the Redsn0w 0.9.4 download being available.
There is a good news and some bad news. The good news is that jailbreaking iPod Touch 3.1.3 is still possible. But the bad news is that jailbreak iPod Touch 3.1.3 is not available for all iPod Touch users.

February 12, 2010 at 11:43 AM

Sorry, i gues i should mention that Redsn0w 0.9.4 works with iPod Touch 1G, 2G (old models) and iPhone 2G. It is available for download. You can download this tool from the iPhone Dev team website.

February 12, 2010 at 1:45 PM

i know how i jailbroke my ipod touch and now it doesnt work, that sucks

February 12, 2010 at 2:51 PM

you cant jailbreak ipod touch 3.1.3 i tried it just doesnt show blackrain like it blocked it

February 12, 2010 at 10:57 PM

right now im downloading the firmware for ipod touch 3.1.3 i was stupid to update and now i need to use quickpwn and wait 37 more minutes for some stupid firmware to download

im not even sure its going to work!!!

February 14, 2010 at 12:52 AM

try download older FW 2.1 or any other you found it on google.. in itunes hold shift and then press RESTORE it will opens you a window find there your downloaded software and put it on :)

February 14, 2010 at 1:06 AM

hi i am wondering when a 3.1.3 jailbreak for an ipod touch 32gb 3rd gen will be out...

February 14, 2010 at 7:13 PM

I downgraded my touch 3g today!!!! I've been checking everyday for an update and came across something that may have added to me being able to downgrade. 1st off couple of days ago i changed my hosts file located in windows/system32/etc/hosts. open that in notepad and at the bottom after the stars there should be a line of ip address. Deleted that and replaced with gs.apple.com

Now this didn't work when I tried it but today i downloaded ziphone cus it said it compatible with jailbreaking 3.1.3 touch's. Didn't work, i had it open in the background searching for a iphone and then i decided "wth, lets try to restore it again through itunes" amazingly enough it worked. Thought i should share since i was looking forever and never found anything.

So the gist of it is: Change your hosts file by opening with notepad / have ziphone running in the back searching for a iphone (absolutely useless) and restore. It MIGHT work for you. I just listed whatever was running when it worked for me. Good Luck!!

Definately not worth it
February 16, 2010 at 4:33 AM

I installed blackra1n on my ipod ouch 3G 3.1.2 yesterday and it was very easy, i donwloaded some games and then i saw one app with 126 reviews saying that its the best Apps so far, so when i downloaded it and installed it, it says i gotta reboot my ipod so tht was it, never managed to get back on ipod so i had to restore my ipod, while restoring my ipod it was also updated at the same time to 3.1.3. Now its all working good and i dont think that its good to jailbreak....Definately not worth it!!!!

Rico Bono
February 17, 2010 at 6:54 AM

Richard, I am going to try your experience on my ipod touch 3g 32 GB. I hope it does work otherwise.... hahahaha, I will blame on you!!!
If it works you are a genius.

February 17, 2010 at 11:17 AM

I really hope that Apple with release an upgrade for 2G to go to 3.0 (Or higher) that keeps all your jailbroken stuff very soon.
Because it just seems that I can download "Tap Tap Revenge 3" but can't play it once I click on it. It's for 3.0 and plus.

Soooo.... Unless there's a way to get that app AND being able to PLAY it without having 3.0 or higher, please tell me.
Or otherwise, I think I would have to wait for a damn 3.0 Jailbroken version. T_T

February 17, 2010 at 1:23 PM


The Guy Who Can't Downgrade
February 18, 2010 at 3:07 AM

Hey, happy for you and all. But what version of ziphone did you use and where did you download it from?
Cos I just tried this and it didnt work :s

February 18, 2010 at 9:16 AM

ok does the 2nd gen have a camera or just the 3rd cuz mine looks exactly like the 3rd but no camera is that a 2nd gen??

February 18, 2010 at 1:17 PM

dude uhm.. if you downgrade itouch 3g to 3.1.2 and u have cracked apps on the itouch, will you lose the cracked apps if you downgrade back down to 3.1.2???? PLEASE HELP

February 19, 2010 at 5:13 AM

hi i already try to do the jailbreak with blackra1n but he doesnt work when i restort the ipod
how i do mow?????????

February 20, 2010 at 2:17 AM

is it, or is it not possible to jailbreak ipod touch 3.1.3, 3rd generation? what do i have to do, if possible?

February 20, 2010 at 2:23 AM

which ipod touc users are not going to be able??.. 3rd gen users?!

February 21, 2010 at 12:55 PM

None of the iPod Touches have cameras, and all of the iPhones have cameras. I could go on a rant about how the iPod touch 3rd gen should have a camera, but I won't. Just know this:
iPod touch 1G, 2G, and 3G = no camera
iPhone 2G, 3G, and 3Gs = camera.
Hope that helps.

February 21, 2010 at 12:57 PM

Nobody has released an iPod Touch 3G jailbreak for 3.1.3. Geohot had a tethered jailbreak for iPod touch 3G on 3.1.2, but he hasn't released an update for it yet. So it's not possible yet, but it will very well be possible in the near future.

February 21, 2010 at 1:15 PM

same, i've been cheecking youtube and google for like 3 days now and im starting to get worried :(

please reply if there is something i can do to jailbreak my ipod 32gb 3g 3.1.3


February 21, 2010 at 10:01 PM

doesn't seem to be one yet but i'm convinced it will soon be released. far too many people have unwittingly rebooted and ended up with the 3.1.3 nightmare. it means instant fame, if not fortune, for some genius out there. and fyi if anyone purchased the bogus program out there from SWREG or any other scammer using paypal just file a dispute and the money is quickly refunded to you

February 21, 2010 at 10:13 PM

check your product number,
if it starts with mc, it is a 3g
if it starts with mb, it is a 2g
it it starts with mc and it is 8 giga bytes model, its also a 2g

February 22, 2010 at 1:16 AM

where can i download 3.1.2 firmware?

February 23, 2010 at 2:28 AM

How i know if my ipod model is old or new? :S

February 24, 2010 at 2:24 AM

thanks, i'll be waiting then, would appreciate that you communicate anything new you know...

February 24, 2010 at 10:30 AM

I am right beside you i got a itouch 3G 32g on 3.1.3 i pretty sher nothing is available right now i have been schering every night since i akcendently upgraded

February 24, 2010 at 12:00 PM

Guys, i have read all the comments but i still dont get if i can jailbreak my ipod touch 3.1.3 model MC...8gig?


February 25, 2010 at 12:43 AM

Apparently, it only refers to 3g 8gb or lower because 3g, 8gb is basically 2g. Notice that the 8gb is slower, that proves that they used the old hardware and stuff. So people that have 3g, 32gb or higher(like me...), are screwed.

February 25, 2010 at 1:04 AM

Ohkay. I used Blackrain to jailbreak my 3.1.2, also, and I've had minor problems with it.

You really have to be careful with what you download.

It is, in fact, totally worth it, though. It opens up a whole bunch of opportunities and such.

So if you do still have 3.1.2, I would definitely recommend it, just be careful with what you download and do on it.

February 25, 2010 at 1:12 AM

About the “Note: Do no’t use Safari to download iPhone 3.1.2 IPSW files, instead use another browser. Safari downloads this as a .ZIP and iTunes is not able to recognize the firmware that way.”

You can still use Safari to download it, you just need to do “Save As” and then erase the “.zip” part of the file being saved to where it just says “Yada-yada-yada.ipsw” It will save it as the .ipsw and you’ll be good.

However, I have not been able to get any of the restores to work. My friend has the latest iPod with 3.1.3 firmware, and asked me to jailbreak it for him. I searched forever yesterday for a way to restore it to 3.1.2 so I could use black rain, but I can’t seem to find a restore for his iPod. Mines the first gen. 3.1.2 restore, so it won’t work on his.

February 25, 2010 at 1:13 AM

yes, better to wait. I also have a touch 3g 32gb 3.1.3 MC model. I tried with all the available jailbreak tools. Only tethered jailbreak is possible thru blackra1n and snowbreeze. Lets wait for the rescue

February 26, 2010 at 1:06 AM

Still waiting for a jailbreak for iPod touch 3G 32gb/64gb models, any news?

February 26, 2010 at 2:01 AM

The same this has happened to me. i've tried this, it all worked, untill i looked for the blackra1n icon on my ipod and it wasn't there. so i don't know whats up! hopefully they'll figure out a way to jailbreak our ipods. any ideas when that will be available?

February 26, 2010 at 2:04 AM

is it safe to downgrade 3g 3.1.3 to 3.1.2? i'm thinking about this, but i'm worried i'll get viruses or something like that.

February 26, 2010 at 4:15 AM

well i can tell u that u can t jailbreak ipod touch 3g 3.1.3 with blackrain because i ve tried it and it just doesn t work but you no i am 13 and u might not belive me

February 26, 2010 at 5:08 AM

Hi Darron We Have The Same iPod And Same Problenm xD

February 26, 2010 at 8:00 AM

ok i tried this and it said u jail broke your ipod. but on my ipod i cant see the icon black rain. what do i do

February 26, 2010 at 9:34 AM

dude Redsn0w doesnt work with 3g ipod touch users :(

February 26, 2010 at 12:17 PM

step 2: Go to recovery mode ( hold down the home and sleep button for 20-25 seconds (the shut down screen will appear but keep holding down the two buttons) When the apple appears, let go of the sleep button. It will then ask you to connect your ipod to itunes. Plug your ipod to iTunes.
(it will say that you must restore, along as you have a backup your ipod)
Before you restore, go where it say restore and hold swift and click it if you have mac you would have to press control and then click. A open thingy will pop up.

Cont...from...step 2


February 26, 2010 at 2:24 PM

Wow, is it me, or is every download link on this site broken?

February 26, 2010 at 6:35 PM

will any of the above work on a mc model 2g ipod touch? PLEASE, please reply!

February 27, 2010 at 2:34 AM

Yeah, I'm in the exact same boat as Thomas.

February 27, 2010 at 7:00 AM

hey i figured out how to jail break ipod touch 3G 3.1.3!! all you have to do is re-name file (iPod3,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw) to (iPod3,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw)

IT WORKED I just jailbroke my ipod touch 3G 3.1.3

February 27, 2010 at 9:08 AM

:( i JUST bought my ipod touch like two weeks ago and it was on a diff firmware from 3.1.3 cause it asked to upgrade...since i never really considered jailbreaking my ipod until my friend told me about it, i upgraded it the day before he told me what was up. im all for hacking stuff. wii, 360 ect..and im pretty sure im screwed right? i have 3rd gen, 32 gb ipod touch never jailbroken....so loooking very muuuch forward to a jailbreak for 3.1.3 3rd gen users with MC models. cant downgrade either. the firmware 3.1.3 prevents you from being able to? right? thats why only 8 gb 3rd gen mc models can, they just use 2 gen firmware to downgrade... :(

February 27, 2010 at 10:00 AM

I got a 64GB 3rd gen, and I'm with you two guys.. hope someone comes up with a solution soon!

March 1, 2010 at 2:36 AM

March 1, 2010 at 6:19 AM

Forgot to mention 32gig model

March 1, 2010 at 8:30 AM

Artifex Maximus
March 1, 2010 at 6:37 PM

If you renamed 3.1.2 to 3.1.3 then you did not jailbrake 3.1.3 just 3.1.2 I think.

I have an iPod Touch 2G MC model but no luck with jailbrake yet. I have tried redsn0w, blackra1n. I had some success with walking pineapple logo and "downloading jailbrake data" message but my iPod did not started up.

March 2, 2010 at 12:19 AM

what exactly do i do once i rename the file coz i dnt have a clue

Gary B
March 2, 2010 at 12:23 AM

Sorry, I tried this. Downloaded 3.1.2 firmware, renamed it as 3.1.3 firmware as told. Then restored ipod touch 3g 64gig in itunes. Restored as 3.1.3 couldn't jailbreak. Then tried to restore with option key in itunes pointing toward renamed file, Asked apple to verify 3.1.2. Could restore. DID NOT WORK!!!! Could you tell me exactly what you did. Had you already jailbroken these ipods before? Had they been running 3.1.2 before.

March 2, 2010 at 12:35 AM

It does not work (64GB, MC).

It is not that simple; if it was, the Dev-Teams would have announced it and forums flooded with the exploit on front page.

Renaming the .ipsw would not fool the Apple severs. Heck, if this worked, it would render Umbrella, TinyTSS and Saurik's server as impracticable.

The OP either
1. Does not have a MC model (thus MA/MB) and is therefore able to use PwnageTool or another application to jailbreak his/her device.
2. Bluffing.

As of writing, NEARLY all iDevices can be jailbroken with various tools, with the EXCEPTION of 3.1.3 firmware 2G (new bootroom)/3G iPod Touches, and the iPhone 3GS.

I think we have to accept that Apple has won. the dev_team and geohot just can't jailbreak 3.1.3.

March 2, 2010 at 4:12 AM

Hey you talking about using redsnow when doing the re-name file?

March 2, 2010 at 4:17 AM

I mean when doing the jailbreak? My friend has a new 3g ipod on 3.1.3 and i want to help him jailbreak, so did you use redsnow to do this once you renamed the ipsw file?

March 2, 2010 at 4:38 AM

I have an IPOD touch 3g with 3.1.3 and I downloaded the 3.1.2 os and changed the name and it won't even let me restore. Any suggestions?

March 2, 2010 at 5:09 AM

I tried that with a 64gb ipod touch 3g using the renamed 3.1.2 firmware and it still didn't work

March 2, 2010 at 5:22 AM

what do I rename cus wen i rename the blackra1n thing it only lets me rename blackra1n. what and how do I change to (iPod3,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw) the ipod or the blackra1n thing?

March 2, 2010 at 5:38 AM

@Chriss h: do you have a 8, 32 or 64 GB model?

Matt J
March 2, 2010 at 6:48 AM

Doesn't work buddy. I tryd renaming the 3.1.2 firmware to 3.1.3 and still says that the document is eligible.

March 2, 2010 at 8:41 AM

hey when did u get ur ipod ? n is it MC model?

March 2, 2010 at 9:21 AM

i try it n it says the ipod was restore cause the firmware was not compatible.

March 2, 2010 at 10:08 AM

help i dont know how to find the file

March 2, 2010 at 12:42 PM

@CHRIS H: I'm guessing u have an 8gb MC Model? Either way, it doesnt matter if u change the name, itunes recognizes the firmware. Just cuz u change the name doesn't mean u can fool the computer or even itunes. Come on now, APPLE is way smarter than that. So either u dont have an MC model or ur just trying to get attention.

March 2, 2010 at 12:48 PM

I got the same message as Qsta.
This is a brand new iPod Touch 3G that came defaulted with 3.1.3 on it.
I followed the steps and downloaded the 3.1.2 firmware, since the blackra1n program only works with that version.
When I shift + click the Restore button and select the 3.1.2 firmware, I get an error on iTunes that says "iPod "iPod" could not be restored because the firmware is not compatible."
I even re-downloaded another copy of the firmware just to make sure there wasn't an issue with that. I put my iPod in DFU mode and get the same annoying message when I shift + click restore. Is there just no way to jailbreak an iPod that came defaulted on version 3.1.3? Because I am seriously having no luck. :(

March 2, 2010 at 1:52 PM

this doesent work i just did it it was a wast of time.

March 2, 2010 at 5:43 PM

I had to buy a new 8 gig iPod Touch 3G MC because my other one was crushed. It was a jailbroken 2G, so the version was much older than this new one. When I plugged this new one up, it came defaulted on firmware version 3.1.3.
I followed all the steps online to downgrade it to firmware 3.1.2 so I could jailbreak it with Blackra1n, but I am not successfully able to. Since this is a new iPod, I do not have any previous firmware version loaded in iTunes. So, I downloaded the iPod3,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw file and followed the instructions to downgrade.
I put the iPod in DFU mode, but when I shift + click on the Restore button, it gives me:
"The iPod "iPod" could not be restored because the firmware file is not compatible."
I made sure that it was the right file for my 3rd gen MC iPod as well.
I even went in and renamed the file like you guys suggested, but no matter what I try, I still get the same annoying error. (so apparently what Chris H said was incorrect)
I read that since Apple isn't allowing downgrades to firmware anymore, I might not be able to do this.
Is it just impossible to downgrade an iPod Touch 3rd Gen MC model from 3.1.3 to 3.1.2? If so, I guess I will just have to wait until the next version comes out. Any help would be appreciated if this obnoxious error can be bypassed.

March 2, 2010 at 9:36 PM

but its not working?Will this work in mc model?

March 3, 2010 at 3:45 AM

Mine's 32 gb ¡, I tried restoring it to the now renamed iPod3,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw. First a message appeared that said that my iPod was going back to 3.1.2 and that all my data was going to be erased, I agreed. It extracted the software then it started verifying the restore with Apple, then a message that read: "The device 'zer0' could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build."
Anything I should do that I'm not doing??

March 3, 2010 at 5:58 AM

it didnt work for me

March 3, 2010 at 12:36 PM

i feel your pain
though i am really puzzled because my friend has a 3rd gen ipod touch 8 gig and somehow he was able to jail break his. i tried with my 3rd gen 32 gig and got the same result as you.

the problem is itunes. it no longer signs older firmware versions now. it only lets you upgrade to 3.1.3 so yeah everyone will just have to wait for a new blackra1n to come out, which from what i read wont be anytime soon :(

March 3, 2010 at 1:30 PM

Awwwwww, well BOOO! That really blows.. But hey, at least now I know so I won't keep sitting here wasting night after night trying different fixes on the internet that "supposedly" work and don't. Thanks, Mack. I appreciate it. ^_^

An Apple Rep
March 3, 2010 at 10:27 PM

Okay, not really an Apple Rep. Wanted to scare you people. But just saying.... you can do TETHERED jailbreaks with redsn0w 0.9.4.

March 4, 2010 at 3:38 AM

i'm in the same position as you nathan. apple won't let me downgrade from 3.1.3 to 3.1.2

hopefully there'll be something out soon on how to jailbreak ipod touch 3g 32gb MC model 3.1.3

March 4, 2010 at 7:32 AM

This doesnt work for my for some reason, i used internet explorer and it downloaded the file as a Zip

March 4, 2010 at 8:26 AM

instead of waiing for the new jailbreak you should try to edit itunes files

March 4, 2010 at 9:30 AM

I have a 32gb 3rd gen MC model on 3.1.3 firmware and I cannot get even a tethered jailbreak to work with redsnow 0.9.4. Is there anyone who has got a tethered jailbreak to work?

March 4, 2010 at 9:52 AM

I DID IT!!! IPOD TOUCH 2G 8 GB. Yeh!!!!!!! MC VERSION! I'M GENIUS!!!))))))) THANK'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

March 4, 2010 at 11:01 AM

hi i have a 8gb ipod touch 3g with the 3.1.3 firmware how cani downgrade?

March 4, 2010 at 1:58 PM

hey i tried to downgrade my ipod touch 3g to 3.1.2 so i can jailbreak it and itunes say that my ipod can not be restroed

The ipod could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the request build

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!

March 5, 2010 at 3:25 AM

It does not work for an iPod Touch 3G MC model (at least not on 32 and 64 GB, 8 GB I'm not sure of) For as far as I know, renaming the file does'nt change the content and therefore it should also make no difference. Since I'm totally desperate for a jailbreak I tried it all, but it doesn't work.

Best option, wait untill April. By then there will be a jailbreak available..
Just don't sweat it.. It's still a thing for music and vid's norly for games


March 5, 2010 at 6:34 AM

wat do u do when the iTunes thing pops up?

March 5, 2010 at 11:59 AM

downgrading will be hard because i tried to downgrade my 3g ipod touch to 3.1.2 , but it said it was not compatible

March 5, 2010 at 12:26 PM

hey i did the same thing...i freaked out ten realized i hate to completely uninstall itunes....then reinstall....then right click the install file for itunes and say open with winrar and reinstall the apple mobile device support.msi. this should reinstgall what u broke when u tried to downgrade...it did for me

March 5, 2010 at 8:12 PM

I have an ipod touch 8gb MC model. It doesnt allow me to downgrade or renaming the filename.

Guess have to wait for apr...

March 6, 2010 at 12:32 PM

Both of you don't need to uninstall!

Just hold the home and power buttons for 10 seconds until your touch is off.

Then replug it back into your comp and then Restore in iTunes! Voila!

March 6, 2010 at 5:53 PM

?? it doesn´t work for my ipod touch 3g firmware 3.1.3

March 6, 2010 at 10:15 PM

Hey i have an ipod touch 2g 3.1.3 does blackra1n work on that?
Please answer

March 7, 2010 at 3:31 AM

doesnt work for ipod touch 2G MC model 8GB either, i tried this three times and didn't work. I had 3.1.2 firmware and tried to jailbreak the right way, but im a noob and completely screwed it up and had to restore it on iTunes. I'll try anything, unfortunately, this didnt work.

March 7, 2010 at 3:14 PM

just says could not be restored. then it stays frozen on the screen showing a USB plug to iTunes icon. Used pwnage tool on a mac to do this, followed instructions to a t. what's going on.

iPod touch 1G, 8GB, Firmware 3.1.3

March 7, 2010 at 6:17 PM

Here's something to consider - although it's small and silly, look at the filename of the IPSW before you jailbreak. If you have a iPod Touch 2G and the filename says 3,1 at the front, it won't work because that's specifically for MC (3G) iPod Touches. You'll have to download the 2,1 file. I figured this out while scratching my head wondering why redsn0w kept telling me I needed a tethered JB on my MB model.

March 8, 2010 at 2:17 AM

I had exectly the same as you:( now i still waiting for a newer jail;break for 3.1.3...

March 8, 2010 at 10:37 AM

yes, with redsnow

March 8, 2010 at 2:15 PM

I downgraded my ipod touch 3g 3.1.3 to 3.1.2. I guess i got lucky.

March 9, 2010 at 2:53 AM

don't downgrade from 3.1.3 because if u backed up your ipod on the 3.1.3 software then when u go to a different software u will not be able to sync with itunes everything that was on your ipod

March 9, 2010 at 5:00 AM

how?! i kept trying but its not working T.T
can u send me the site where u DL ur 3.1.2 firmware

March 9, 2010 at 10:52 AM

March 9, 2010 at 11:22 AM

Thats easy If you Have the 3.1.3 on your 3g touch downgrade it use the ipod touch 2nd gen firmware 3.1.2 to downgrade and use the itunes 9 thats it =)

Need Helpz
March 16, 2010 at 2:43 PM

Hey i have been trying to jailbreak my ipod touch for the longest time and have been having so much trouble i watched a bunch of videos and followed different instructions. My Ipod is a 2g and is on 3.1.3. I tried the redsnow thing but Redsnow crashes when i get to the downloading part. I downgraded to 3.1.2 and tried using black ra1n but it just gets stuck. My Ipod is not an MC model. I have no clue what is wrong or what i should do. Any Help would be greatly appreciated. I am on a PC.

March 17, 2010 at 6:59 AM

hey! yeah, u cant downgrade ur device back to the older firmware, apparently becoz u've never jailbroken ur device before u upgraded to 3.1.3. am i right? so, there's no rily hope for that as of now..

March 17, 2010 at 7:17 AM

Me the same problem...

March 17, 2010 at 1:01 PM

Check out videos on downgrading form an early version

March 18, 2010 at 6:06 PM

Neither of these methods worked for me. 3.1.3 is a bitch! i can't downgrade firmware either... idk what to do, if anyone can help or got it to work somehow please let me know.

March 18, 2010 at 6:08 PM

*itouch 3rd generation running 3.1.3 by the way...

March 19, 2010 at 12:23 AM

I have a iPod Touch 3G MC Model using the 3.1.3 update.I used the blackrain thing and pressed the make it rain button but after that it pops up with a message saying that the jailbreak is done.

Well iv'ed waited for around 5-10 minutes just waiting and waiting but finally just stopped.I'm wondering how long does it take to do it?

Or is it the fact that it can be jailbroken because of MC model...

March 19, 2010 at 12:41 AM

Oh and to add it says the jailbreak will be done once it reboots.Well...it never does reboot.It sits there by my computer with a blank screen.It's on but it's not doing anything.But when I turn it off by holding the buttons it goes off and comes back on with the original settings.

If anybody can help then thanks.

March 19, 2010 at 10:35 AM

I followed the steps to jailbreak my iPod Touch 3.1.3 (7E18) and I made it until it says done, wait for reboot then my ipod screen stays black and no picture. And then I have to restart my ipod cause I can't do anything about it. How could I jailbreak my iPod?


March 19, 2010 at 1:27 PM

That's because it is for the 3.1.2 not the 3.1.3 Once one comes out for the ipod touch 3.1.3 you can do it. So until then the make it ra1n and red snow will not work.

March 19, 2010 at 10:27 PM

blackra1n does not work with 3.1.3 onl any device running on 3.1.2 so if you are on 3.1.3 downgrade by downloading the firmware and go to itunes aand hold shift and press restore and broswe for yur firmware and click it and then you will jailbreakt hwn use blackra1n

March 19, 2010 at 10:27 PM

March 20, 2010 at 2:05 AM

I had the same problem when I jailbroke with blackrain, but then I left my iPod up (on the home screen), and did it again. Whalah. I don't know if you did that or not, but it's worth a shot.

do something
March 20, 2010 at 7:23 AM

i hav a 2g ipod touch and i have the same problem, i use blackrain and then my screen turns black and doesnt work. somebody come out with a new jailbreak plz

March 20, 2010 at 9:22 AM

Thats because the iPod Touch MC Models are impossible to jailbreak or unlock. MC Are the newer 2G and 3G model iPod Touches. I hope this helped, and sorry too.

March 20, 2010 at 9:24 AM

You run Redsn0w 0.9.4 or whatever other jailbreakign utility you're using and instead of clicking on "Install Cydia" you click "Run tethered" but only after your screen stays black re-run the jailbreak but with the tethered option and not install cydia.

March 20, 2010 at 9:26 AM

Do you have instructions on how to downgrade a NON MC Model IPod touch 2G from 3.1.3 OS to 3.1.2 OS?

March 20, 2010 at 11:29 AM

What ipod touch you have ipod touch 3g 8gb will work try to use the 3.1.2 firmware for ipod touch 2g if you have 32gb it will not work only on 8gb =) good luck
