My dear friend,I don't know I have audacity to advice you but for love of god I want to do that.
Well, as you have 5yr experience and you are bored to hack development works,you should leave development field as you have no interest left but keep it up your development skills by doing short projects.
Testing, huh? why not penetration testing along software testing,you can also do security stuffs.
For that you can do certs such as Cissp,CEH,CPTS,six sigma black belt,ITIL manager so that you can increase inner instinct and salary.
best regards, omi
