In this scenario you have to update to old stock iOS 5 firmware and then try again .

Since Apple is already closing down on devices with iOS 5 beta releases acquired by illegal means [like paying the developer to get download slots] , it is advised that you get a legitimate developers account which costs $99 a year . The developers account can be registered here .
