    Google 'Download iPod firmware' find the repository then use [Shift] Restore in iTunes and choose your firmware. (Hold down Shift key and click Restore)

    I don't think that link is allowed here, patpond.

    I think it's against the rules please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Once you update to 4.0.2, will the method described above work to get 4.0 back on my device?

    just use that link and get a 4.0 firmware, and use shift restore and navigate to your downloaded file, or, a non illegal way: go to C:\Documents and Settings\USER NAME HERE\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates
    That is using winXP, windows vista and 7 are similiar.

    So can that method be used to go from 4.0.2 back to 4.0?

    Not if you don't have your shsh blobs saved.

    where do I find these shsh blobs? I remember seeing something on my device when I accessed cydia that said something like "this device has shsh files stored for 4.0" or something to that effect......so how do I access this info so I can get 4.0 back?
