iPhone jailbreak steps

1.1.backup iphone:

Right-click (or Control-click) the iPhone or iPod touch in iTunes under Devices and choose Back Up.

1.2.download iphone 3.1.2 firmware

1.3. download blackra1n

2.start the break:
from your computer, double click the saved blackra1n
then clicke on "make it rain"
it will show “entering recovery mode...”
then you will see " your jailbreak is done once the device reboots. ....", click "ok" and reboot iphone.

I got below problem at this step:
frome itune you see below error message:
itune has detected an iphone in recovery mode, you must restore this iphone before it can be used with itunes

click on restore from itune, after a while iphone reboots.
(turn off blackrain window before doing so)
I got a white blank screen on iphone and itune says " preparing iphone for restore...."
then itune said: the iphone "iphone" could not be restored. an unkonw error occurred (13)
I figured out this was because a network issue in my home network, after fixed the network and tried it again, the restore worked fine.
BTW, the restore did ask for firmware package location and it extracted it by itself.

then itune shows " restoreing iphone firmware......."
After a while and a auto reboot, everything is ok.
Now I can get into iphone as usual, but I found everything is factory setting and all data lost.
I need to resotre from my data backup.Went to itune, click restore backup and choose the right

backup name, few minutes later everything done.

3. install cydia
Once blackra1n is installed properly that means jailbreak done.
click "balckra1n" from iphone, and then choose to install cydia. make sure you have network connected with your computer.

Note, my iphone was unlocked by the vendor before jailbreak.
