We know how excited you are! Finally, the iOS 5.1.1 Untethered version using Absinthe 2.0 is here. However, for GSM iPhone 4 users we have an update for you.
Just to inform you, and we hope you haven’t updated your iPhone 4 to revised iOS 5.1.1 (Build 9B208). Apple released the revised version for fixes. The fruit company did not describe the changes made on the new build; we hope you are aware of these quiet changes. It remains to be discovered if any update on this revised build will affect your Absinthe 2.0. untethered jailbreak on your iPhone 4.
The original public build of iOS 5.1.1 is 9B206. This is a quiet move from Apple. Last week, the build number was 9B206. You have to be keen on iOS 5.1.1 updates to ensure your jailbroken device runs smoothly. Apparently, Apple needs to fix the GSM iPhone 4 (iPhone 3, 1). As of this writing, there are no available revised builds for other iOS devices.
Based on the number of build, it suggests minor bug fixes for iPhone 4.
This is interesting, and we all know that it was just a couple of hours ago when Chronic Dev Team publicly released the untethered jailbreak using Absinthe 2.0. Was it a coincidence? It was timing. Probably, it was just a plain revised for minor bug fixes.
This is not the first time Apple released a quiet revision of iOS instead of a new iOS firmware update. Do you still remember the tweak Apple released to fix SIM card bugs on iPhone 4S?
We’ll see whether the revised build will fix the iOS 5.1.1 exploits used. For the iPhone 4 users, we suggest you stick to iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B206.
If you have accidentally updated your GSM iPhone 4 to Build 9B208, revert to the old build by simply downloading iOS 5.1.1 Build 9B206 here. Let’s wait for the Dev Team to release a support for this revision. You can revert to the old version as long as Apple continues to sign the Build 9B206.
