    BlackRa1n supports a tethered jailbreak. This means that once you are done with jailbreaking you should not let your battery die. If it does die you will need to reconnect it to the computer and use BlackRa1n to boot it.

    I have jailbroken new 3gs 16gb, and had to click make it rain again on initial reboot, many people are complaining of the iphone stalling with the itunes/usb screen (recovery mode) to continue the start on jailbreaking simply plug into computer and click make it rain (again) and this will sort it.

    Do you think their will be an untehered jailbreak solution soon?
