it worked like a charm! I updated from 4.3 to 5.0.1 with a custom firmware. Then I restoed to the custom firmware. Lastly, I jailbroke it. I did it all with redsn0w. Make sure you follow all instructions carefully. Thanks iclarified:

Hello friend Do i need to backup my Cydia/Installous/AppStore Apps/Packages/Tweaks before i jailbreak using Redsn0w (without updating my baseband since i need the unlock)? Best regards

Not do sure about your cydia apps. I only had a few so did not mind reinstalling them. I did however; back up my iPhone in iTunes to keep contacts and other saved info. Then after jailbreak to a cistom firmware I backed up my phone in iTunes it was a fairly easy process. Then launch into cydia and magic I unlocked it with no problems :) I hope this helps good luck!
