I upgraded to the 5 and want to sell my 4S but want to wipe the contents first. I figure it would be best to keep it on 5.1.1 so I haven't wanted to use the iTunes restore. Whenever try shift restore and pointing to 5.1.1 I get an error. Any ideas?

I tried and still ended up with an error. Maybe I need to add some info. The first thing I tried was an erase from settings to wipe my phone. It didn't work and I've since read that you should never try that with a jailbroken iPhone. Now I get an error anytime I try to Restore, upgrade, downgrade, etc. I don't mind restoring and losing jb, but iTunes will not let me. Any help?
