Havok says:

Problem. Did the whole process. But Cydia app crashes before it even opens. Can't rejailbreak because the Poison app says I'm already a jailbroken device. Any clues? Tried Reset all and settings, cydia still there unable to open.

Did you try restoring it back to it's un-jailbroken state, and then re-jailbreak?

Havok says:

Trying a restore. And hopefully I can redo the jailbreak.

This version is for 5.0 and 5.0.1 so yes, sounds like you'll have to update if you'd like to use this tool.
