    You have two options:

    #1 If you have the shsh files saved in Cydia for 4.0/4.0.1/4.0.2 you can upgrade, jailbreak and unlock. No unlock possible for 4.1. - Windows

    #2 If you know a friend with a Mac, they can you pwnage tool to create a custom 4.x.x saving your baseband. So you can upgrade, jailbreak and unlock. - Mac

    Or look online and try to find a custom 4.1 ipsw created with pwnage.
    Then use redsnow on windows to put your phone in DFU in order to restore to the custom firmware thru itunes.
    Then open up cydia and install ultrasnow to unlock.

    With the newest version of Redsn0w yes. You just have to download a custom 3gs 4.1 ipsw from a trusted source.

    No problem. I'd be scared to download it too but it's worth a shot.

    Hopefully it doesn't fail but if it does, yes, you'll lose the unlock for now.

    If it fails and doesn't restore it's ok. You can try another place to download a custom firmware. If it's fake and instead of custom 4.1 ends up being the official Ipsw then your baseband is updated and your unlock gone. But there should be a new unlock soon I heard.
