    Wait for the new sn0wbreeze. Should be any day now. Then follow instructions on how to upgrade to 4.1, it will preserve your baseband and jailbreak it for you so you dont lose the JB/unlock.

    I'd extract your SHSH blobs right away with Tiny Umbrella, allowing you to forever use the version of iOS that's on your phone now. Keep copies of the blobs in a safe spot(such as burning them to CD and put them in a safe deposit box).

    Also remember that a normal upgrade to 4.1 will overwrite your baseband as well. Look on the net for instructions on how to upgrade while preserving baseband(uses DFU & Tiny Umbrella server). This will allow your current unlock to continue working.

    Remember that without SHSH blobs of a specific version you are unable to install that particular version on your hardware(3GS).
