Correct me if I'm wrong but you can not upgrade to 5.0.1 even if you did have your SHSH's saved. When you try and use iTunes to upgrade the firmware to 5.0.1 it will error out and not upgrade since it checks Apple to see if that firmware can be signed. Since they quit signing it, it will error out with every firmware except the newest one, which is the 5.1.
SHSH blobs are only useful for A4 devices like the iPad 1 and iPhone 4 and older. No one has come up with a way to do any downgrades or anything with the blobs yet for the A5 devices. That's why you can't upgrade to anything other than the currently signed firmware.

I believe that's redsn0w with the absinthe JB integrated into it that the dev team said they'd do.

Jailbreak iOS 5.1 Untethered On iPhone, iPad, iPod touch By i0n1c [VIDEO] | Redmond Pie
seems like they figured it out, untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1, well for iPad 3, but I'm assuming it should work for iPad 2 as well. Lets wait for the official release, hopefully real soon.
