    Your problem is with Internet Explorer, IE will download is as a .zip file. All you have to do is to rename the .zip to .ipsw, then you will see the cube form like, this is the file.
    You can downgrade to 4.0,4.0.1 only if you have shsh blogs and it is going to be very slow on 3g.
    If you want you should downgrade to 3.1.3, you do not need the shsh blogs to do that.
    All you have to do is put your iphone into DFU mode.
    Do the Shift + Restore to 3.xx ipsw
    You will arrive at error 1015.
    Use Tiny Umbrella to kick out of this error.
    Once booted up into Emergency Screen, you can use Redsn0w 0.9.4 to jailbreak, just point to 3.1.2 ipsw which you have to download as well.
    You can only jailbreak but you will not be able to unlock.
    That's it.
