    Looks like you are stuck restoring to 5.0.1 firmware unless you have an shsh for a 4.x firmware.

    For some reason, Apple is still signed 4.1 fw on 3GS. So, put your phone in DFU mode, and restore to 4.1 fw. Please make sure you down load the following to your computer because you will need them;

    1. 3GS 4.1 firmware for installing it into your phone.
    2. Tiny umbrella for kicking your device out of recovery when Itunes gives you 1015 error at the end.
