There is no way to restore to 5.0.1 or 5.1.1 without SHSH blobs. Are you sure you don't have any? Check at the top of Cydias home page.

Otherwise I would start removing tweaks while in safe mode.

At the very top of the Cydia home page, above "Welcome..." There should be "SHSH: iOS x.x.x"

It should at least have 6.0.1 listed.

You can restore 5.1.1 by running redsn0w, clicking Extras> Even more> Restore, clicking IPSW and selecting the 5.1.1 ipsw for your phone. If you don't have it, scroll down to "Firmware" on our links page.

If your iPhone only boots up into safe mode, try uninstalling some of the tweaks you installed recently. Sometimes tweaks could cause this to happen, you don't have to restore yet and save some trouble,
