    blackra1n is a tethered jailbreak, meaning if you lose power or shut down your phone manually, it will cause it to lose its jailbreak.

    Only way to boot it after those events is to run blackrain on a computer with your iphone plugged in.

    First of all I would recommend starting fresh again.. The instructions to jail break and unlock is quote simple.

    #1-Restore your iphone to factory fresh
    #2-Run Blackra1n and follow instructions
    #3-Phone should automatically reboot to the home screen, if you see the Blackra1n logo, run the program again.
    #4-Once your phone reboots, a Blackra1n icon should be displayed on the iphone.
    #5-Run the Blackra1n icon in your phone, install Blacksn0w

    Unlock Done!

    I recommend you restore using a custom IPSW and give up blackra1n. More hassle than it's worth apparently.
