    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Download and run tiny umbrella.
    Plug in your iPhone and Click save shsh.
    It will list what blobs you have available. If it only lists 5.1 and not 5.0.1 you will never be able to downgrade to that again.
    And try not to "accidentally" update next time.

    The jailbreak for 5.1 is a tethered jailbreak only

    Did you do it correctly:
    Open redsn0w
    go to extras
    select just Boot

    now it will go into jailbreak mode, you will see the pineapple as boot screen

    than try cydia again
