what device ?

so better make a costum ispw :

To do this, click on “Extras” option and then select “Custom IPSW” option.

Select the required iOS 5 IPSW firmware file, and let Redsn0w make the custom firmware for you.

Once done, enter Pwned DFU mode by selecting “Pwned DFU” from Redsn0w’s Extras option, and then restore to this custom firmware using iTunes

That won't work, the only method to preserve baseband, at this moment is by using PwnageTool on a Mac. Windows equivalent would be Sn0wbreeze, but the developer is holding its release until iBooks issue is resolved. So sit and wait or borrow a Mac.

Redsn0w 9.10b3 can create a 5.0.1 cfw on a windows machine. Sn0wbreeze 2.8b11 can also be used but tethered if prejailbroken simple/expert mode is used, installing corona from cydia will untether.

Make sure you're in Pwned DFU mode, and make sure you do not have yours hosts file pointing to Cydia. I had this problem, and this is what resolved it for me.
