It's not already Jailbroken, but for some reason it is being read as if it is.
The jailbreak is the iPhone 4S 5.0.1 jailbreak found here: Untethered A5 jailbreak - Absinthe | greenpois0n.com
Right now my iPhone is running 5.0.1, and is brand new, I don't get why it is saying it is jailbroken...

Nah the jailbreak process doesn't even start, right after pressing the jailbreak button it waits a second then says "Device already Jailbroken. Detected Stash" or something.
So essentially the fix to this problem would be to restore the iPhone and then run the JB process, but this is impossible because if I restore the phone I automatically update to 5.1 and then can't jailbreak the phone.
I'm screwed for the most part, but I downloaded an iPhone 4s iOS 5.0 backup. Could I somehow enter DFU mode and use the file i downloaded to restore to 5.0?
I'll quote the original reply I got the above idea from:
EDIT: just learned it's for iPhone 4 and below only
eh **** looks like im gonna get stuck on unjailbreaked 5.0.1 or unjailbreaked 5.1 either way im screwed

yeah that sucks. sometimes this cat & mouse game gets old. don't get me wrong, jailbreaking is fun, i just wish it was more consistent
hopefully by the next untethered jailbreak there will be a way to save SHSH blobs on A5 devices. if not, then this will be a vicious cycle
if i were you i'd investigate a little more into your situation. maybe there's still hope. good luck!

it's a waiting game that devoted jailbreakers are accustomed to and stay with previous firmwares until the next one is untethered, which can be days or months. you never get to join the excitement of when a new OS is released
if you have a Twitter account you can follow some of these hackers and get info here & there
