Apple has released iOS 5.0.1 (9A405) final to the public. This build fixes the battery issues on iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad & iPod Touch. Also, this new iOS fixes some security issues.

iOS 5.0.1

iOS 5.0.1 also brings back multitasking gestures on the first-generation iPad, improved Voice Recognition for Australian users and more.

Download Links for iOS 5.0.1 directly from Apple:

You can download iOS 5.0.1 via the direct links given below and then update via iTunes.

Over the Air (OTA) update is also available from Settings -> General -> Software Update

iOS 5.0.1 - OTA Update

Note: Jailbreakers and unlockers must stay away from this update. A tethered jailbreak is available for iOS 5.0.1, but Apple might have fixed the exploit that Charlie Miller discovered recently. So, untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 might take time. Also, it’s not possible to downgrade to iOS 5.0 once you’ve updated to iOS 5.0.1, because the SHSH downgrade method has been patched by Apple.

Hi, I’m planning a BB preserved upgrade to iOS 5.0.1 now since untethered Jailbreak is out. However, if I face some issues, is there no way to go back to iOS 5 even with iFaith’s signed iOS 5 signed custome firmware package?

You can go back to iOS 5 if you’ve dumped SHSH blobs using iFaith.

sn0wbreeze is not yet updated to support iOS 5.0.1 untethered. You’ll need to use redsn0w to jailbreak + untether iOS 5.0.1.
