    Jailbreak using limera1n or greenpois0n. then go to cydia and click on the "make my life easier" button. If you've never been jailbroken before, then you'll never be able to restore to anything less than 4.1 at this point. meaning the only ecid you can save right now is the one for 4.1.

    If your intention to jailbreak is to steal apps and use pirated copies, you are not going to get any help here. Bye.

    Errrr yeow, he was saying about the firmware crack, not apps getting cracked.

    Anyway, to the OP, just make sure you don;t update to the 4.1 as yet. Limera1n will jailbreak your iPhone at 4.0.2 and you should be good to go.

    Don't worry about the ECID, that's used for downgrading.
