Right on the heels of iOS 5.1 release back in March, a new maintenance update has just appeared on Apple’s servers. The new firmware for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models carries a build number 9B206 and includes several bug fixes, including one for the annoying network switching issue with iPad 3.

Minor AirPlay issues are addressed and reliability of HDR photography taken using the lock screen shortcut is now improved. The firmware update also squashed another issue with syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List.

Note to jailbreakers: don’t update.

According to release notes accompanying the update, it contains the obligatory improvements and bug fixes, including:

• Improves reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut
• Addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks
• Fixes bugs that affected AirPlay video playback in some circumstances
• Improved reliability for syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List
• Fixes an issue where ‘Unable to purchase’ alert could be displayed after successful purchase

You can install the update by connecting your device to iTunes via a USB cable and hitting the Check for Updates button in the Info section of your device information pane.

More coverage of the iOS 5.1.1 update:

  • Right before the iOS 5.1 jailbreak is released. The timing couldn’t be better.

  • Ahmad Ahmad

    Just installed it, good, keeping my phone up to date, Didn’t jailbreak Never

    • do you see any noticeable differences, other then the fact that Apple might have released it to fix exploits that could cause the 5.1 untethered jailbreak?

      • jose castro

        im sure they did, but theres always another way and apple knows that hahahahahahaha.

      • they didn’t fix the exploits, if apple did then tethered would not be available on 5.1.1 already

      • No a tethered jailbreak will likely always be available for A4 devices thanks to Geohotz Limerain exploit, thats why it works and will always work as it is a hardware based exploit.

      Did not jailbreak never? Not never? Meaning you sometimes or always jailbreak?

    • jose castro

      ya why are you on here then if you dont jailbreak? you a spy or something hahahha

  • Ahmad Ahmad

    Just installed it, good, keeping my phone up to date, Didn’t jailbreak Never

  • mordechai eliyahu

    cool hope the jb will work on that

    • jose castro

      they shouldnt work on it and wait till the next iphone comes out or ios 6

        Says who? that’s just your opinion and you certainly don’t speak for everyone !!

      I hope Justin Bieber will work on that too.

      • mordechai eliyahu

        WTF u talking bout

      • see the person’s name…kind of a retard…;D

  • would an baseband update make ,y sam unlock backup useless?

    • No, SAM is unaffected by Firmware or Baseband. IF you saved your lockdown folder you can update your baseband.

      • i still wouldnt because i want to keep the oportunity to use an other sim with my gevey sim.

  • Time to save shsh….

    • TinyUmbrella is not saving my SHSH. Is Apple not signing off on 5.1 already??

      • I think Tiny umbrella shoud be updated in order to save the new shsh
        Expect a release shortly…..

      • TU log tells me cydia does not have 5.1 shsh for the New iPad, ”you are just to late”.
        Looking like apple is no longer signing off on 5.1 :(.. Teach me not to save SHSH right away.

      • What does “not signing ‘off’ ” mean
        I’m confused
        Apple will most probably sign 5.1 for the next few days along with 5.1.1
        Get the latest version of TU
        remember to untick “get shsh from cydia” or something like that
        You can save 5.1 shsh blob
        It will be in your users folder if your running windows
        As long as 5.1.1 is concerned TU needs to updated. It will be done shortly…:)

        I don’t think so mate. The signing window is getting shorter and shorter. The iOS 5.0.1 signing window was 24 HOURS after iOS 5.1 was released. I guarantee that the 5.1 signing window will be closed by today or tomorrow.

  • Uh oh here we go again

  • jose castro

    booooooooooooooooo lol

  • i’m guessing this is to stop the new jailbreak in its tracks? great. was really looking forward to the untethered.

    • No it might not mean that, so far i0nic’s still works (but that’s irrelevant since he wont release it) and we’re still waiting to hear from Comex and Phoenix (not sure if thats right?) and Pod2G’s team

  • Useless…

    Nope keeping iOS 5.1 till the jail break comes out

  • Updating to iOS 5.1.1 right now

  • I didn´t update my new iPad.

  • Dan

    would of been nice to get the 5.1 jailbreak before 5.1.1 came out 🙁

    • Anonymous

      NO it’s beter to get the jailbreak AFTER any new iOS is released.lol

      • Dan

        Not for someone who is on 5.0.1 and has been waiting for a 5.1 untethered. Can’t update now.

      • Save your shsh… god why do I have to keep telling that to people

      • Dan

        @ Filip Langer: kinda hard to do when you receive a new phone from Apple =P

  • 5.0.1 is still best…..

    • Anonymous

      No it’s not.lol. It just happens to have an untether.lol. iOS 5.0.1 has bugs that iOS 5.1 and 5.1.1 DO NOT have.

      • Hate to break it to you ZiiG, you’re wrong. The XML scheme was changed in 5.1 and 5.1.1 , 5.0.1 *IS* still the best.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah mate….standard users care so much about what XML parser there phones are using.lol. Just because you PREFER the parser in 5.0.1 does not make 5.0.1 the *best*. It makes 5.0.1 YOUR PREFERENCE.

    hmm… i wonder what’s pod2g thinking…

  • Apple is on the defensive, they know we were waiting on an 5.1 untethered jailbreak so they came out with this BS update… I’m glad I never upgraded to 5.1, still on 5.0.1 and that is fine with me…

  • Eric Morgan

    I’ll be glad tha unable to download popup is gone from app downloads. Annoying as hell. And I have the airplay issues also. Good update. iPad 2 updated. iPhone 4 staying jailbroken.

  • iPhone 4s iOS 5.1.1 Baseband 2.0.12

  • Eric Morgan

    OTA update was perfect. 6 minutes from tapping until reboot. They have the updates down cold. The cord truly has been cut.

    • Anonymous

      Not for jailbreakers it hasn’t.lol

      Not for jailbreakers it hasn’t.lol

  • Tanju Hasan

    So should we update our iphone 4s’s to 5.1 while waiting for the jailbreak before apple stops signing it ? Lets see what pod2g has to say about this 5.1.1 update, if its safe to update great. If not, those who were saying to wait till ios 6 for the JB should STFU from now on.

    an iPhone without jailbreak is not a cool iPhone, same goes for iPad,iPod, etc too, thumbs up if you think the same way too

  • i think they should save expliots and start working on the untetherd jailbreak for 5.1.1 now, thats what i think they should do, it would be easier

  • i think they should save expliots and start working on the untetherd jailbreak for 5.1.1 now, thats what i think they should do, it would be easier

  • Got it.. No fear of jailbreaking.. I have an untethered for life

  • Anonymous

    Yep I’m loving my 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak

  • I’ve still got the old bootrom iPhone 3GS , so it’s always untethered for me but not always stable in cydia.

  • I think I’m done jailbreaking. It’s been taking longer and longer to get the latest jailbreaks out and iOS 5 is jam packed with many features that I used to jailbreak for. It’s just a matter of time before iOS 6 is announced which will probably include some familiar jailbreak tweaks that Apple has improved and implemented into the latest iOS.

  • Frencis De kock

    hope that jailbreak for 5.1.1 comes soon!! you can do so much more when you jailbreak your device!!

  • what is the baseband for iphone4 as in iOS5.1.1?

  • I cannot upgrade my iPhone4 5.1 into 5.11 .It says the firmware is corrupted.But it isn’t.I downloaded the IPSW from here.Can anyone give me a solution.

  • Patrick West

    how do you get redsn0w??
