    Custom 4.0 IPSW will work on a 3G - You need to use pwnagetool - don't jsut download a pre-made custom IPSW from the net and try to restore via iTunes.

    I would try this approach, if it does not work - post a restore log http://www.hackint0sh.org/f137/130802.htm

    Default Shsh

    gramoz1: If, after you first jailbroke your iPhone you clicked on the "make my life easier" link when you first opened cydia you will be ok. Follow this link. It is really simple (I've done it).If you didn't click the link then you are SOL. Sorry dude.

    Now 4.0.2 is not signed any more either. Do NOT restore to 4.1 if you want to use ultrasn0w unlock. Without a cached SHSH 4.1 is now the only restore option.

    From the sounds of it, he did not get far enough in the jailbreak to get cydia open. Also as I keep on saying, it takes a few days (at least) for your "make my life easier" request to be processed by Cydia (there are tens of thousands of requests a day). Even if your request was processed, Cydia prioritises processing new requests over updating the "you have xx SHSH on file" display that appears when you open Cydia.

    If you know a new iOS release is due soon, use TinyUmbrella, it tells you within 30 seconds if you have saved a SHSH or not (and it registers with Cydia's make my life easier service as well)

    TinyUmbrella The Firmware Umbrella will also allow you to verify if you have any saved SHSH on Cydia. Use the advanced option and enter your SHSH
