When my son did that to his jailbroke device, here is what I did to fix it...http://support.apple.com/kb/TA38633. You can DL the iOS you need and then install manually or just update with 5.1. If you want to JB again, the iPad1 can be done on5.1 with a tethered JB, but I could be corrected there. You can't just uninstall iTunes. You need to follow those directions. There are other files that have to be removed manually! The link above tells you which and what.
