The SoftRa1n jailbreak tool is what the jailbreak community considers to be the New Faithful". Sure, plenty of other groups get in on the act with their various jailbreak and unlock iPhone 4/4S/3Gs iOS 5.1.1 untethered utilities, but it seems as though no matter what firmware version is released, the SoftUnlockiPhone.com Team always comes though with alterations to its iconic tool in order to help iOS users liberate their otherwise heavily-restricted devices. SoftUnlockiPhone.com has released a new and easy to use jailbreak and unlock iPhone 4/4S/3Gs iOS 5.1.1 Untethered tool called SoftRa1n.
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, we have hit that time once again in the jailbreak cycle when we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief and raise a glass to the jailbreak producers while we overload their servers attempting to download the new and shiny utility that will provide our devices with freedom. Yes, that is right, I am indeed talking about downloading SoftRa1n 2.0, the latest version of the SoftUnlockiPhone.com Team tool that brings an untethered jailbreak and unlock to the majority of our iPhone 4/4S/3Gs iOS 5.1.1 devices.
We have found ourselves in an all too familiar situation over the last couple of months, stuck in limbo between wanting to update to the latest official firmware, but not knowing when or indeed if a functional jailbreak would be released. Keeping history in mind, we should be able to rest easy in the fact that researchers such as SoftUnlockiPhone have always managed to escape the securities put in place by Apple to bring a jailbreak and unlock iPhone 4/4S/3Gs iOS 5.1.1 to the masses, but there will always remain a small part within us that has doubts each time Apple pushes a new version of iOS
Some SoftRa1n updates are just minor vanity house updates or meager bug fixes, but it gives me great pleasure to announce that the just-released version 0.9.12b1 uses SoftRa1n’s exploit to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 untethered on iPhone 4/4S/3Gs and Unlock. The fruit company’s latest and greatest firmware version hasn’t coughed up many bugs hitherto, but the limited jailbreak capabilities have meant that many users still haven’t been able to enjoy optimal performance, until now.
If you have already jailbroken your device using SoftRa1n, you really don’t need to use Redsn0w now. But if you are a unlocker, and have been waiting for a tool to do a custom firmware (A4 devices only), you would be glad to know that SoftRa1n has finally been updated with support for 5.1.1 untethered and unlock.We are once again sitting right in the middle of that beautiful time period when updated jailbreaking tools are available, which allow us to free our iOS devices from their technical shackles. For those who have been sitting with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running Apple’s iOS 5.1.1 firmware, you will no doubt be aware that after weeks of hard work and research, SoftRa1n and his team have released an untethered jailbreak/unlock for all existing iOS 5.1.1 devices, excluding the third-generation Apple TV.
