3GS/v3.1.2/04.26.08: Have I missed getting on the 4.01 Pwnage Train?
I have been completely swamped and am very embarrassed to admit I've fallen out of touch with what's going on. Friday night, I watched on TV as someone said fw4.1 is already coming out. That jerked me into refocusing on the iPhone. If I'm reading correctly, Apple is no longer signing v4.0 for the 3GS. Also, Pwnage is not ready for v4.0.1.
My 3GS: v3.1.2, modem 04.26.08, JBed always using Pwnage
Q1: Am I correct in assuming I missed the Pwnage Train for v4.0? Am I stuck on 3.1.2 until Pwnage is updated for v4.0.1 or a later version?
I quickly used Tiny Umbrella to get my SHSH files for v4.0.1 cached (from Apple). At least, I have that.
Q2: Tiny Umbrella said it cached two v4.0.1 SHSH files, using Apple not Cydia. Is that correct for a 3GS?
Thanks for any help!

1) Apple is still signing 4.0. Not sure for how long, but they are. Get your SHSH quick.
2) If you don't have a 3.1.2 SHSH, trying to go to 4.0 can be very risky as if anything fails you get stuck on a factory locked/jailed 4.0.
3) PwnageTool works with iOS 4.0, which (if your phone is already pwned) you can restore to regardless of whether or not Apple is signing. The pwned LLB skips the SHSH check. That said, if you restore a factory OS, you unpwn the LLB, so, don't think this is some kind of get out of jail free card, it's not. It's a "one-time screw-up will remind you of this day for eternity". Don't restore a standard / stock firmware unless you're aware it un-pwns your phone and you know what this means and what you can and can't do to resolve it.
No idea about the two SHSH files. I got just one for my 4.0 SHSH, haven't stored my 4.0.1 SHSH yet.
