    Dude, why do you want to restore from 4.0.2 to 4.0, you can jailbreak your 3G at 4.0.2, use Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 and point to 4.0 ipsw when ask to browse to.
    You need soft shsh blogs for every OS 4 and above if you want to restore or downgrade when apple stopped signing the corresponding firmware.
    If you don't have shsh blogs for 4.0, then you can't
    However, you do not need shsh blogs for every OS 2.0 to OS 3.1.3 and you can restore anytime you want, and it will eventually end with or without an error

    It is very likely now that your iphone is in recovery loop, if that is the case download the latest tiny Umbrella and use the function there called kick out of recovery.

    By the way, 4.1 is going to be out this week, probably tommorrow that will fix all the bugs that slows down 3G performance and a new jailbreak will be out soon.

    When I point the 4.0 ISPW it says it cant be recognized or found or something like that. And im not sure I have this shsh blog you speak of, This Iphone has never been jailbroken before.

    I figured I had to restore or downgrade or whatever then use redsnow cause when I try redsnow right away it dosent work.

    Running Redsn0w and restoring in Itunes are two different process. When you run Redsn0w you don't require shsh blogs, you only require the shsh blogs if you try to restore in Itunes.
    Since you are already at 4.0.2, you only run Redsn0w to jailbreak. If Redsn0w cannot find the 4.0 ipsw, then you have downloaded the wrong ipsw. Go to here to download your official firmware

    If the downloaded file is in .zip or .rar, do not extract, rename only the ext from .zip to .ipsw.

    Is your iphone now at 4.0.2 and are you in emegency screen or Springboard screen ?

    Yes it is now at 4.0.2 And the file comes directly as a ipsw.

    Im in my regular springboard screen.

    Why won't redsnow read the file? I have downloaded several file types non seem to work.

    Why dont you grab the 4.0 ipsw from here on MMi's Downloads section instead and try that on Redsn0w? I always use files from MMi as I trust theyll always work fine.

    Have you you updated your net framework ?. There is no reason why Redsn0w wouldn't recognize the 3G 4.0 ipsw.

    The problem is with your computer, I just ran Redsn0w0.9.5b5-5 and the 3G iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore , it detected right away once you point to it.
    You have two problems now, one is the computer not letting you run Redsn0w.
    Which leads to , unable to proceed with the jailbreak tool.

    I suggest if you can't fix it, use another pc to perform the jailbreak with Redsn0w.
