    You can't restore without SHSHs. You need to download TinyUmbrella on your computer and try to pull the SHSHs (if any) from the phone to TU. You'll click "advanced options" in TinyUmbrella and try version 4.0.1 for your device. If it says no SHSH saved for 4.0.1, try 4.0 next. Keep trying down to 3.1.3 and 3.1.2.

    If you find that none of those SHSHs are saved, you'll be forced up to 4.1 and lose ability to unlock.

    If you don't have 4.0.1 shsh blogs, then you won't have 4.0 either. Try for the 4.0.2 shsh blogs with tiny Umbrella. Limera1n is supposed to be able to jailbreak 4.0.2.
