    This is why Apple tells you not to install iOS betas unless you're a developer.

    As for restoring to 4.x, are you sure you got DFU mode right? From what I understand, that method works for reverting from 5.0 to 4.x.
    Haven't personally tried it though, because I like having iOS 5 on my iPad 2 (especially for testing Xcode 4.2 apps).
    Could be wrong on that though, and if so, well, you were warned (by Apple) not to upgrade your daily device(s) to the iOS 5 beta, and that you wouldn't be able to go back.

    I have had this problem when I upgraded to iOS 5. I successfully have downgraded back to iOS 4. You need to put it in DFU, if you have an iPhone 4, the screen will be completely BLACK.

    Then plug it in and run the restore. It may take a few tries so be impatient.
