    do yu have SHSH/blobs for 5.01 for your iPad?

    If you do you can upgrade to 5.01, if you don't have SHSH's for 5.01 you can't upgrade.

    Put your iPad in DFU-mode and restore in iTunes by clicking on restore while holding ALT (on a mac) or SHIFT (win).

    you now can select the IPSW you downloaded and restore with that.

    Afterward jailbreak with redsn0w

    I dont have shsh files. only for the version that I have which doesnt help me at all I tried to restore in itunes and it wont let me restore. It gives me an error. I was wondering if I find an ipad with that version that I need can I download the shsh file and restore it with that and does it have to be jailbroken?

    SHSH are unique to each device

    1 thread should be enought for your problem.

    If you don't have SHSH's for 5.0 than you can only update to 5.1.1
    In your other thread i gave you solution for the 1394 error.
