    You can still jailbreak your 3g at 4.0.2 by using Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5.
    Remember to point to 4.0 ipsw which u will have to download as well.
    If you still want 4.0.1, if apple stops signing it, you need shsh blogs to be able to restore.

    I thought there wasn't a jb out for 4.0.2

    I'm not the smartest when it comes to this stuff so let me explain I jailbroke my 3g with blackrain at 3.1.2 I want to upgrade to 4.0.1 using the most simple method possible. I was hoping to jb 4.0.1 by going the jailbreakme.com website but I don't know how to find 4.0.1 since updating with iTunes now installs 4.0.2

    If you want to jailbreak at 4.0.1 , go to iclarified. Com to download the 3g 4.0.1 ipsw, for pc do a shift + restore , it will bring up a box for you to browse to the downloaded file. After the restore, activate it before using jailbreakme. Com from safari.
    My previous post is the alternative to jailbreak.

    Im actually trying to do the same thing. I have an unlocked iPhone 3g with 3.1.2 and I wanna update my phone to 4.0.2 so should i just update it regularly on iTunes then unlock it again at 4.0.2?

    Yes, if you have a 3g, then you can still jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5.

    Stay on 3.1.x. Too many problems for a 3G on iOS 4

    Annie, I have downgraded my 3Gs back to 3.1.3, most of Cydia stuffs is not compatible with 4.0 and i hate the multitask on 4.0, I prefer using backgrounder and circuiitous.

    You're the best,Yeow202. Thanks alot bro. I did jailbreak my 3G at 4.0.2 .
    I know 4.x suck but I loved Folder app and some pretty nice theme I saw in this great forum.

    B.S Thanks [email protected] for asking this question.

    ? I didnt ask a question, haha I was just saying the lag and freezes become overbearing sometimes. I really loved the folders too but over the course of 2 weeks it drained my battery so fast and froze my phone to where I had to hard reset every time at least twice a day. Thats just me (and a few others lol) but to each his own. Just be sure to save your SHSHs while youre at it if you havent yet
