    Download 5.0.1 IPSW. Hold Shift (or Option on a Mac) and click restore in iTunes. It'll ask for the IPSW you want to restore, select the one you downloaded.

    Yes. However, Cydia usually stores them. If you were only jailbroken on 5.0, then you can't go to 5.0.1 since Apple no longer signs it. If you did have 5.0.1 and Cydia stored your SHSH blobs, then you need to edit yours hosts file to connect to Saurik's server instead of Apple's.

    I believe Cydia will get SHSH blobs for every available firmware regardless of whether you installed it or not. So if you were jailbroken while Apple were still signing 5.0.1 blobs, Cydia has blobs for that firmware, regardless of whether you installed that firmware or not.
