How To Fix Missing ASL.dll While Running Blackra1n

Apple has released a new version of iTunes, iTunes 9.1 which changes how certain things work. If you have upgraded to iTunes 9.1, several programs will start giving you an error that ASL.dll is missing.

iTunes 9.1 Missing ASL.dll issue

This problem also occurs while trying to jailbreak iPhone using Blackra1n, when running the executable will give you an error saying that ASL.dll is missing as shown in the above screenshot.

The solution for this is simple, you will need to place the Blackra1n executables in the Apple folder under Common files in Program Files. The folder would be located in the following locations:

32 Bit – C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support

64 Bit – C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support

Once you copy the blackra1n executable to the above folder, create a shortcut for it on the desktop and double-click it to run it as usual.

Update: If you continue having problems with Blackra1n, you can use the new Spirit tool to jailbreak iPhone OS 3.1.3 and others.

    I tried this but it does not reboot, I get popups of itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode. You must restore this iphone before it can be used for Itunes. Also the message holds in blackrain done, wait for reboot.



    • Jim

      did you find a fix for this problem

    • Tyler

      I also get this. Did you figure out what to do? Or does anyone else know what were doing wrong?

      • Conor

        I was using Windows 7 and had this problem. I ran it as administrator and in computability with windows xp and it worked. Hope it works for others too.

        • Ty

          how did you do this? soory, for the probably obvious question.

    • Greg

      I made sure itunes wasn't running when I clicked 'make it rain' – worked as expected when done this way

    • todd

      I think you have to run the blackra1n software again to fix this……the iphone will have to reboot. Mine boots twice….it boots once, then I get the "recovery mode" message, then it will reboot and all is well…..
