    Firstly, don't shout - it's not going to get you help any faster.

    1. Use The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella to save your 4.1 and (if possible 4.2b3) SHSH as soon as possible
    2. Find a friend with a mac - get them to make you a custom IPSW using the procedure here: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.1]
    3. Use redsn0w 0.9.6b4 to put your 3GS into pwned DFU mode and then use iTunes 10.0 or higher, shift-click restore button in iTunes and browse to the custom IPSW your friend made for you.
    4. Reinstall ultrasn0w to unlock iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock the iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G Using UltraSn0w

    What not to do:

    Don't use sn0wbreeze, we won't help you if/when it goes wrong
    Don't restore to 4.1 without using custom IPSW- you will lose unlock
    Don't download a pre-made custom IPSW from the net, these are often not what they claim to be and you risk installing malware or losing your unlock.
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!
    How to report an iTunes restore/update fail in a useful manner

    iPad 3G 64GB (4.3.3, Redsn0w) oldest SHSH 3.2.2
    iPhone 4 32GB (4.2.1, Redsn0w JB-monte) oldest SHSH 4.1
    iPhone 3GS 32GB (4.3.3; Pwnagetool) factory unlocked oldest SHSH 3.1
    iPhone 8GB (3.1.3; Pwnagetool) AT&T Locked - Unlocked with bootneuter
