    I honestly don't think you can upgrade your iPhone to iOS 4.0.0/4.0.1. The software -- that is ultrasn0w is designed specifically for older versions of the iPhone. If you truly wish to upgrade to iOS 4.0.0 or 4.0.1 you will probably need to restore to regular factory settings and unlock you iPhone with something that can be used with iOS 4, then again jailbreaking your iPhone again to work with iOS 4.0.0 or 4.0.1. If you feel like you don't want to go through this, you should just forget all about it and not even upgrade.

    Unlock it -- Must be jailbroken first:

    Jailbreak it:


    Note: If the two top links don't work for you, then check out the source I put so then you can look up your own tutorial that works.
