    may be this will work

    It far easier to install TinyUmbrella from The Firmware Umbrella.

    1. Run TinyEmbrella.
    2. Click "Save my SHSH" button. TinyUmbrella will grab yours SHSH blobs for 4.0.1 from Cydia because they were already saved there and store them locally on your Windows or Mac computer.
    3. Click "Start TTS Server" button. This makes the necessary changes to your host file and will restore it back to its original state when you are done.
    4. Download firmware 4.0.1 for your 3GS here, if you haven't already.
    5. Now, restore your 4.0.1 firmware in iTunes by Shift+Restore (Windows) or Option+Restore (Mac) and select the 4.0.1 firmware that you downloaded earlier.

    That's it. When it finishes restoring the firmware and reboots, open Safari and goto and jailbreak your 3GS again.

    There's really no need for a guide. Just download the 4.0.1 firmware and shift-restore in iTunes. Make sure there's no references to in the hosts file.
