iPhone 3GS with 5.1.1 won't turn on - spinning circle all the time. Is there any software to recover files from the "dead" phone?

try this one, I have unlocked my phone on very very fast (about 6 hours total) and cheap, now i can update to any version without having to worry that my phone will be locked ever again. Only 9.99$ for iphone unlocks!

This also works on the iphone 4s except the N90 file is now N94. :)
