    Use limera1n or greenpoison to jailbreak and you wont need the 4.1 firmware. Unless you have a iPhone 3G, in which case you just need to download the 4.1 firmware for iPhone 3G so you can browse for it with redsnow.

    If downloaded as a .zip file, rename the extension from .zip to .ipsw and this will be the file.
    For 3g jailbreak, you can use Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 or 0.9.6b2 to jailbreak it.

    You will not be able to unlock it but just jailbreak at 4.1

    Make sure you restore your 4.1 and setup as a new iphone. A backup restore will not work.
