The actual process

In step 1, you need to download RedSnow 0.9.11b1 properly and carefully. Then, in case you do not have essential firmware with you on your system, you can download iOS 5.0.1 as well as iOS 5.1.1 for your system.

Later in step 3, Run the RedSnow as administrator and then choose Extras > Even More > Restore options. Under IPSW category, choose IPSW button and then choose the iOS 5.0.1 firmware. As you get it verified, choose the iOS 5.1.1 firmware then.

Moving on to the 4th step, after the firmware is duly verified, then you can choose Remote button that is there under Blobs section. Doing so, it will pull the blobs from Cydia in case you have jailbroken as well as saved the blobs to Cydia earlier. In case you have not, then choose local and then point to the blobs on your system if you have saved them with tool such as TinyUmbrella. Further, in case you have not saved the blobs, you will not be in the position to downgrade.

Move on carefully

After this, all you need to do is to sit back and see the device become restored completely. The device will start through installing th5.1.1 firmware and then will downgrade the firmware iOS 5.0.1. All this will take around 10 minutes or so.

As the steps are completed, you then need to go through the initial setup of the device and be there on iOS 5.0.1 back again.
