For me iOS 5 has lost it's novelty for now, my gf updated to 5.0 and it's done little to impress neither her nor myself. I'm staying on 4.2.1 untethered until all of the kinks with 5.x are sorted out, I'm guessing that I'll be updating to 5.x probably April-ish time going on past history

If your backed up to your computer you can downgrade and back up from a newer firmware backup by doing this I just done it. I had 5.0.1 b2 on my iPhone 4S and downgraded to 5.0 so I didn't lose my jailbreak then I had to manually adjust my iTunes backup on my Computer from 5.0.1 to 5.0 then it would restore the newer backup to my 5.0 firmware. If your using iCloud for your backup that is fine I am also, Plug your iphone into your computer and open iTunes now on the left hand side of iTunes click your iphone that is connect that you wish to backup and right click on it and backup. Now you will have a current backup on iCloud and on your computer via iTunes. Now you need to unhide system folders, google it if you don't know how. and follow this tut to adjust your iTunes backup to go on older firmware:
I discovered that restoring from a backup was not possible due to the software being too old on my iphone.
so here is the answer.... This Example Is For all iphones (5.0.1 to 5.0 or whatever how to restore backup)
1. Navigate to your itunes iphone backup folder (WIN7- C > USERS > "ME" > APPDATA > ROAMING > APPLECOMPUTER > MOBILESYNC > BACKUP ***some of these folders may be hidden btw)
2. Find the most recent backup, this reflects the backup in itunes with no date
3. Theres a bunch of strings/files here, scroll down to info.plist
4. Open it in notepad
5. Near the begining, fined these two strings...
<key>Product Version</key> <string>5.0.1</string>
<key>Build Version</key> <string>9A404</string>
--The value after the versions will differ depending on what version you were last on when you backup up, I'm assuming it was 4.0, though this method should work retrospectively and for future updates.
6. Now change these values to reflect your current setup e.g.
<key>Product Version</key> <string>5.0</string> or what ever version of firmware you restoring to
<key>Build Version</key> <string>9A334</string>or what ever version of firmware you restoring to
7. If itunes was open, it will still not recognis the backup, so restart itunes.
8. Backup should work fine now!

Here we go :
Restore to iOS 5 and setup as a new iphone under a different name, same name is fine too as iTunes will include a date stamp on your backup .
Your 4.3.3 backup is left untouch, so when you downgrade , you can setup as a backup restore .

Ya 5.0.1 is a joke. The standby battery life is horrible.
I need to do a clean restore.
