Jailbreak your iPhone

afc2add : Solve iFunBox, iPhoneBrowser, Diskaid With Blackra1n phones


Blackra1n by GoeHotz is a 2 minute jailbreak utility but it doesn’t adds the afc2 support to your jailbreaked iPhone. iPhone browser, iFunbox, Diskaid etc uses the afc2 service to access the file system and allow the transfer of files such as Winterboard  themes, NES ROMs or eBooks to the iPhone. In short you can’t access root partition of your drive with desktop clients. GeoHotz also tweeted that he disabled it because of issues whilst making the JB but said look arround cydia for a fix.

And here is Cydia fix released just some hours ago, afc2add solves all your problems with iFunBox, iPhoneBrowser, Winterboard, SBSettings and all similar applications with blackra1n jailbreaked iPhones.. Just open the cydia and search for afc2add and install this patch. After installation reboot your phone and you’ll be fine again.

    Hello everyone~

    I have an iPhone 3G 16GB & it is jailbroken & I don’t know what method was used to jailbreak it because that’s how I bought it. The OS is 3.1.3 & the problem I’m having is when I run iPhoneBrowser (ver.1.9.3 I am getting the “Not Jailbroken (no afc2 service found).

    Yes, I have ALREADY downloaded & installed afc2add on my iPhone! I’ve uninstalled & reinstalled it twice.


    Ciao~ Joey

    ^^^^^@Sam_Please help_me^^^^^^^: Unfortunately… you’re gonna have to restore firmware. It’s tough, i know, but just restore to 3.1.3 FW, and Spirit JB wll allow that firmware (3.1.3) to be jailbroken.

    If your ipt2/3GS/ipt3 is rebooting into recovery after running blackra1n, this isn’t a bug. It’s a feature. You need to run blackra1n every time to boot it. This ‘feature’, called tethered jailbreak, is enabled by upgrades Apple made to the bootrom and the fact ipt3 uses nand flash.

    from GeoHotz

    now,i dont’ need tethering, how do i turn off that feature?

  16. vodanhz February 2, 2010 Reply

    i believe this happen to the new blackra1n (RC3)
    the previous version of blackra1n doesn’t cause this.

    Worked for me. Took forever to reboot, but it worked.

    Hey guys

    For the ones who are stuck in “Recovery Mode”, I learnt the hard way too! It’s SUPPOSED to do that! You have to boot Blackra1n from your PC (Connected to your iPhone) and it restarts it again.

    You have to do this everytime, so if you’re not near your PC, DON’T turn your phone off, or run out of battery because you’ll be stuck until you get to your PC!

    I presume you’re on the 3GS (like me)? My dad has a 3G and he doesn’t have to boot everytime using Blackra1n, but I do.

    John, yah, unless you’re depended on unlock function of your carrier, be sure to update both itunes on pc as well as os in phone before :), run app as admin for less problems
