redsn0w & PwnageTool: 5.1.1 untethered support!

If for some reason you were holding off on the 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak because you absolutely have to use a tool from iPhone Dev Team, your wait is over.

redsn0w and PwnageTool have been updated to include the Rocky Racoon exploit, and now jailbreak 5.1.1 untethered.

The cool new feature for redsn0w on A4 devices and earlier is there's now two ways to make it work:

1. Plug and jailbreak: This works a lot like Absinthe, and uses the same restore to jailbreak method. Like Absinthe though, it's not optimum for folks with a lot of media on their devices. If you are one of those media mavens, then try...

2. DFU mode jailbreak: Place your A4 or earlier device into DFU BEFORE connecting to redsn0w, and redsn0w will inject the jailbreak using the tried and true Limera1n exploit. This won't work on A5 devices, as Limera1n has been closed on those.
