    you cannot jailbreak or unlock a 3GS running 4.0.2 and the dev team announced they will not be making one for 4.0.2 either. So unless you have SHSH blobs saved on you hard drive or cydia you are SOL for jailbreaking/unlocking since you won't be able to downgrade to an unlockable FW. you're going to have to wait until 4.1 and hope the dev team makes a jailbreak for it.

    Use TinyUmbrella to check if you have your shsh blobs saved, and for which versions.

    If you have them saved, you can downgrade and use whichever method of jailbreaking you choose
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!
