Need to Restore 5.0.1 (currently on 5.0.1) & Re-Jailbreak
Long story short, I'm selling my iPod touch 3rd gen to a friend since I upgraded to an iPod touch 5.
It's so dreadfully slow since it hasn't been refreshed since a solid year, two ago. Plus he doesn't need all the fancy jailbreak stuff I installed.
Rather than going through the painful process of uninstall I want to:
-Restore to 5.0.1 (Don't care about updates) [I'm on 5.0.1 right now] (I can save SHSH blobs, if needed)
-Still untether jailbreak
Like I said, getting SHSH blobs shouldn't be an issue since I'm still on 5.0.1?
When I go to Cydia, I see up top in green:
SHSH: iOS 4.1, 5.0.1, 5.1, 5.1.1
If I can get him 5.1.1, that'd be sweet, if not, no big.
Anyone have any tutorials?

Perfect, just what I'm looking for.
Will do now and report back.
It's telling me to plug in my ECID in, so I use ECID Grabber v1 to do so..
It returns with up to 4.3.1 that it has recorded SHSHs for..
Should I 'fetch' them, since Cydia has greenlighted 5.1.1?
Nevermind, fetched the right ECID, queried, stitched to 5.1.1, and absinthe'd.
Then I remembered iTunes offered a clean restore to 5.1.1, and I just saw 5.1.1 is jailbreakable as is..oh well
