You can't keep it jailbroken. First do a backup. Then you should restore and update to ios 5.1.1. Afterward you can jailbreak it on ios 5.1.1

Is my data from apps going to be saved?

Yea. But backup it to your computer or icloud first. Then update to 5.11

No. A backup to iTunes won't save your app data, but an iCloud backup should. Backup to iCloud, restore to 5.1.1, then choose "Restore from iCloud Backup".
ok,thanks!so do i have to download the 5.1.1 then restore my ipod on it and then jailbreak untethered?
