    I hate to be the one to tell you, but no jailbreak for you.

    There is no jailbreak out for iOS 4.0.2 yet.

    First of all, you can't have a 3rd gen device with MB model
    But anyways..
    1. Use the latest version of Redsn0w
    2. Download the 4.0 IPSW file
    3. In redsn0w, click "browse" when it asks the firmware, then click the 4.0 IPSW you downloaded.
    4. Then it should start
    But this only works on MB devices (Pwnd4life)
