You should upgrade now. If Apple stops signing the iOS 5.0.1 firmware you won't be able to upgrade!
It doesn't matter if you have the firmware downloaded to your PC or not, if Apple stopped signing... No way to upgrade to 5.0.1 then.

Thanks M8 I will do it, sorry but still dont understand how signing etc works :eek:

I don't fully understand it.. But what I think about it;
The combination of an iDevice and firmware has a unique signature (SHSH blobs). This signature will be read by Apple when you upgrade.
If the signature is of older firmware (signing window is closed) you cannot update. So if you are on 4.3.5, and Apple stops signing the 5.0.1 signature and started signing the 5.1 signature; upgrading to 5.0.1 is impossible.

No, this isn't really how it is... But the only thing that matters now is to be on iOS 5.0.1!!
