Do not try to restore to 5.0.1 in iTunes.

You must downgrade through redsn0w.

Make sure that you select your 5.0.1(9A405) SHSH and make sure the iPSW you have is for an iPhone 4S at 5.0.1(9A405).

Best thing to do at this point would be to do a fresh restore in iTunes to 5.1.1, setup as new iPhone and then follow the downgrade method. Make sure you jailbreak before restoring from backup.
