MD5 is also known as an one-way crypt system; you can encryptit but
never unencrypted; only using brute force or a hash list you can
retrive a 'string' that it's hash is the one stored; but it is not
necesary the same original string; this is also known as a hash

So, in short... no, there isn't a unMd5().
If you need to retrive the original string, try GPG.
