Do a quick Google search for the 4.0.1 IPSW, and restore the phone (iTunes Shift + click Restore in Windows, Apple/Command + Restore in Mac).
Once you restore it, all of your information will be gone and then you can re-jailbreak it (at jailbreakme.com I believe), and unlock it with ultrasn0w. 4.0.1 is the last baseband that ultrasn0w will work on, but you know that already.

Have you tried this?
How to Preserve Your Baseband For iOS 5 Unlock on Windows Using Sn0wBreeze
You might also check in on the redsn0w updates...there is a Windows version now but I'm not sure if they cooked in the baseband preservation yet:Dev-Team Blog - redsn0w iOS5beta (see updates 13 & 14).

This will only work if you have the 4.0.1 shsh blob saved
Download the 4.0.1 ipsw and TinyUmbrella
Press the Start TSS Server button
Leave TinyUmbrella open and open iTunes
Select your device
On the Summary tab for your device, hold down Shift and press Restore
Navigate to the downloaded 4.0.1 ipsw
Should be restored like new, with 4.0.1. Jailbreak and unlock at your leisure.
alright i did that process, but it's giving me an error in itunes (2005). also tiny umbrella is not showing my saved SHSHs under the "All Saved SHSHs" on the main page. i verified with redsnow and know for a fact that my shsh blobs have been saved, so what should i do??

I've been trying this process with an iphone 4 on win and mac but it has not worked for me for some reason. iphone was on 4.2.1 and a baseband that can't be unlocked but what i was trying to do is wipe it clean and re jailbreak. I checked cydia and shsh blobs are saved but still could not get it to work. I'm pretty sure i followed directions correctly. The phone is now stuck on the connect to itunes logo. Any other suggestions? Thanks.
