    Yes, as I said, you can use Redsnow to jailbreak. Here's a link:

    Jailbreak iOS 4.0.2 with Redsn0w [How to Guide] | Redmond Pie

    Then use ultrasn0w to unlock.

    You could downgrade only if you have SHSH files saved. Use tiny umbrella to see what you've got!

    You are right that Jailbreakme is no use to you on 4.0.2

    There are good write ups on SHSH files which explain it far better than I ever could, but basically, when you do a restore or upgrade in itunes it checks with apple that you are using only firmware which apple is currently signing.

    Cydia (Saurik's server) is keeping everybodies SHSH files on store to circumvent the apple server, but you need to make sure you request those SHSH files to be saved there. One way to do this is when you first Jailbreak and open Cydia it asks if you want Cydia to store those files, clicking "make my life easy" will request the SHSH files from apple at opportune times, so even if you stayed on 3.1.2 cydia would request the 4.0.x files without you upgrading. Tiny Umbrella is a tool which you can use to check which files Cydia has on store and if it doesn't have it it will try to get it from apple and store it. You can use tiny umbrella to see which ones you've got.

    If you have any (and if you were previously jailbroken then you've probably got some) then you can downgrade to that firmware. Check out the downgrading guides.
