How to Fix blackra1n ASL.dll Error

Posted by: 6 July 2010 36 Comments

When jailbreaking iPhone using blackra1n most of us would have noticed that sometimes we get an error while running the blackra1n.exe:

The program can’t start because ASL.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

Which further leads to the following window if we run blackra1n.

Usually this error occurs on windows. Reinstalling blackra1n again will not fix this problem. A simple solution to this problem is to place blacra1n.exe in Apple Folder in the Common files.

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

If you are using 64 Bit Windows place that file in :

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