I'm on step 18. I'm so close to restoring to the custom iOS 4 firmware but I don't have the time to fix my phone if anything goes wrong tonight. Alas it'll have to wait until tomorrow. However my phone is working right now despite being halfway through the process. First thing after work tomorrow I plan to finish the process.
I think this works. ih8snow endorses it, check out the official tweet here
I even asked about the specific tutorial at the beginning of this thread
so here's hoping tomorrow after work I have a 3gs running a jailbroken version of iOS 4.

This does NOT work.
DOES NOT WORK.
i have 3.1.3 shsh on file. JB with spirit. Old bootrom
everything in the guide works up until putting the 4.0 on the device.
at that point it will fail with itunes unknown error 2. This is with snowbreeze or pwnagetool.
Please stop spreading the crap as this DOES NOT WORK
EDIT -- NOTICE THE ONES SAYING IT DOES WORK ONLY HAVE 1 POST HERE?
not too hard for me to say something works, register another email and post it worked for me too.

The procedure certainly worked for me. I registered here only to confirm it worked because I wanted to let others with stock 3.1.3 on their iPhone 3GS know that they're not completely screwed.
Your running into an error doesn't mean the procedure doesn't work in general. It just means it didn't work for you. In the past, many of us have run into problems, like error 1600 or 1604, trying to install modified firmware onto iPhones. In fact, I did yesterday trying to install a custom iOS 4 an iPhone 3G. It's not exactly uncommon.

I can confirm this DOES in fact work.
I'm through the worst of it, my iPhone 3GS was shift+restored to the custom iOS 4 ipsw and am currently setting it up as a new device, re-syncing apps as I write this. Before I re-synced it I tested a few of the cosmetic features, I had the folders, the rain-drop background, the fast app switcher bar, etc.
This was my set up:
iPhone 3GS running 3.1.3 jailbroken with Spirit with the baseband of 05.12.01 and the OLD bootrom while using iTunes 184.108.40.206 (maybe too many 1's, but either way the version immediately before 9.2).
By the time I'm typing this the initial sync is over and I definitely have a 3GS running a jailbroken iOS 4.

Ok, i guess i get to eat crow
Got it to work finally, and heres the problem i ran into in the hopes it helps someone else
Ran thru the whole process exactly, but at the end i was getting itunes unknown error 2.
After pulling my hair out, i tried using snowbreeze 1.6.2
The error was being caused by using snowbreeze 1.6.1
Ya i said it didnt work earlier, but how many come back and admit?

Tried this. Got to the "type reboot and let iphone reboot" part, the iphone didn't reboot. I put it into FDU mode and tried to restore to custom 4.0 but itunes gave me a 1600 error.
I saw a few "use pwnagetool" fixes for that, but i don't have a mac I assume those people with a mac who fixed it used pwnage tool to create a custom 4.0 and didn't get a 1600 error when trying to restore to that firmware?
If that works, what's the chances someone with a mac wants to upload a pwnage tool'd custom 4.0 for us windows users?
That is, unless there's yet another fix.

@bobdole3141 I'm pretty sure the iTunes 1600 error is caused by DFU mode.
If the iPhone didn't reboot what happened? If you don't see the "success" message in terminal then it never flashed. Did you copy all of the files to the /tmp folder? I think there was something like 16 total.
The final restore needs to be done on iTunes 9.2 and it's a simply shift+restore.
I did the whole process on windows vista.
