    First, as a matter of practice, you always should *backup* (sync) your iPhone to iTunes before moving from 4.x to 5.x. Did you do that?

    If so, it's pretty easy to do a fresh restore of 5.0.1 on your iPhone and then resync with iTunes to reinstall all your apps and preferences onto your "fresh" iPhone.

    you do know it's a tethered jailbreak and you must use redsnow extras just boot my device after you boot up.

    what phone is it? What's the current state of the phone?


    try putting the phone into DFU and do a clean restore again.
