You can use setTimeout() to delay the alert long enough for the UI to be unblocked.
			success : function(data) {
				$.unblockUI();
				setTimeout(function(){
					alert(data);
				},50);				
			},

You've also set async to false.  This should be set to true as indicated on the documentation page: http://malsup.com/jquery/block/

The unblockUI method has a callback method : onUnblock. Provide this as an option when calling unblockUI.
$.unblockUI( { onUnblock: function(data) { alert(data); }} );

Here is a demo working:http://jsbin.com/femihobi/2/edit?html,js,console

To get it to work in the demo, I've changed a few variables that should work when changed back to your environment.

I changed "POST" TO "GET" as jsbin didn't allow for POST but it shouldn't matter
I changed the url to one I could test with

async however should stay as true

function SubmitFrm() {
    $.ajax({
      type : 'GET',
      url : '/rimow/1',
      data : $('#registerform').serialize(),
      async : true,
      dataType : "text",
      beforeSend : function() {
        $.blockUI({ 
          timeout: 0,
          message: '<h1><img src="../img/loading.gif" /> Processing...</h1>'
        }); 
      },
      complete : function() {
        //$.unblockUI();
      },
      success : function(data) {
        $.blockUI({
          onUnblock: function() {
            alert(data);
          }
        });
        $.unblockUI();
      },
      error : function(data) {
        // check status && error
        console.log("error");
        console.dir(data);
      }

    });
}

SubmitFrm();

Ah. Yeah, that would be better than using setTimeout().

Both the block and unblock have the same options but the scope is important, which is why the onUnblock must be defined in the success function to have access to the data object
