You can't use a custom firwmare once you're on 4.0, you'll need to downgrade to 3.1.3 (or lower) first and then shift-restore to a custom 4.0 firmware from there.
To downgrade, you'll need to have your 3.1.3 (or lower) SHSH files stored. You have them stored on Saurik's/Cydia's server if you've ever clicked the 'Make my life easier' button in Cydia. You can read about the downgrade process here: Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)
Just to add, all this requires that your phone has the old bootrom.We're all just toymakers in the game of life.
