You don't need Cydia, you can upgrade all the way to 5.1.1 using iTunes, and then jailbreak.

If your question is how to upgrade beyond iOS 5: you can't.

That was my question.... Is there any way to download apps (like Netflix for example) through cydia then? I have searched and don't see it anywhere so I wasnt sure.

Buy a newer iPad or complain to Netflix for not supporting iOS 5.
