Save your BLOBS. peeps!
iOS 5.1 will be dropped today so that means Apple will stop signing 5.0.1 soon
once Apple stops signing 5.0.1 and you do not have your blobs saved and or custom firmware you're screwed if you ever have to restore and will be FORCED to update to 5.1. which currently cannot be jailbroken, even tethered
not sure what this means for 4S users..

I'm kinda new to this, but I believe you download Tiny Umbrella, then save your blobs to your PC. Unless there is an easier way...this is one part of the process I am totally dumb to. I guess the simplified version is, if you need to restore after Apple stops signing 5.0.1, then you simply go to your saved blobs and restore from there, then you can re-jailbreak and add your Cydia apps from there. My question is, do the old apps you have from the app store work? Or are those locked out because you're not on the latest software? Yeesh. Hope they get a JB out for 5.1 QUICK, because I'll be screwed if my phone takes a dump...lol...

You can always use your old apps, just sync them back from iTunes after you restore. The only time this wouldn't be true is if you did not save a copy in iTunes AND the app was updated to require 5.1. In that case, you couldn't use the version stored in your Purchased history because it would automatically give you the latest version (I believe), which you could no longer load, being on 5.0.1.
Short version: sync your apps once in a while, and you'll be fine.
