    It will be much faster if you downgrade to 3.1.3. Google the FW's I'm sure it will come up with something, as its against forum rules to post links to FW files.

    Once you downgrade use Redsn0w 0.9.4 and the 3.1.2 FW. It will successfuly jailbreak/hacktivate the phone.

    If not use Redsn0w 0.9.5-b2 and I think it's the 3.1.3 FW

    You can jailbreak 3.1.3. But it's fine if you want to stay on 4.0.1. Use Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 and point it to the 4.0 FW at the begining. Then press install cydia. It will ask and give you instruction how to put it in DFU mode. Once it's in Redsn0w will do the rest. Then if you want to unloc, go in cydia and search for ultrasn0w. Install that and its done

    No sim card. Just let it stay at the emergency screen and run redsn0w

    You can still use iTunes to transfer music/apps. It won't bother you. Just don't update the phone when it says there is one, because there won't be an unlock for a while.
