    Do you still have the 5.0.1 firmware downloaded on your computer from the previous jailbreak?

    If so then you can restore using this by putting the iPad in recovery mode or whatever it's called and holding down shift (I think) while you click restore in iTunes, this will allow you to choose the firmware file to restore from rather than just download then new 5.1 by default.

    Once done, jailbreak again.

    as the strategy guide says...

    If you need to restore, it's to 5.1, unless you have saved blobs for 4.3.3 in which case you will be able to go back to that version and jailbreak if you choose. But without 4.3.3 blobs already saved from last June, you won't be doing that either.
