HELP!! I hit "erase all content and settings" on a jailbroken 3gs

I have a 16GB Jailbroken 3GS with ios 5.1.1. I wanted to sell it so I hit "erase all content and settings". It's now stucked on the circling logo for hours. How can I bring back the 5.1.1 and jailbreak it again?
When I go to in iTunes>preferences>devices it shows that I have two backups of this phone, are they useful?
Please kindly help me with a step by step guide.
Thanks in advance.

For the future, get "ResetAllKiller". It disables that dangerous button.
