Apple Launches Revised iOS 5.1.1 Build for GSM iPhone 4

Apple updated iOS to version 5.1.1 earlier this month and only added minor features to it, but it’s only now that the update comes to the GSM iPhone 4. The Next Web is reporting that iPhone hacker iH8sn0w posted details about the update on his Twitter account.

The new version of the build is 9B208 and not 9B206 as expected, used in the previous version. We’re not sure that the update brings, other than the usual connectivity and performance upgrades, although it’s interesting to see this release now, just hours after Absinthe brought untethered jailbreaking to iOS 5.1.1 devices, including the new iPad. The GSM iPhone 4 users have already upgrade to 5.1.1, but the problem is that this update is not vulnerable to the untethered jailbreak offered by pod2g.

If you still want the update, you can get it via OTA or iTunes. I’m sure that pod2g and co will find a way to also make the untethered jailbreak work with the iPhone 4 GSM with iOS 5.1.1 new update, but that may take some more days…
