iPhone Dev-Team says no Jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2
The iPhone Dev-Team will not release a jailbreak for iOS 4.0.2/3.2.2. And that means if you purchase a new iPhone 4, which is currently shipping with iOS 4.0.2, you are out of luck in terms of jailbreaking. It is a never ending cat and mouse game between Apple and the jailbreak community and for current iOS software, the Dev-Team are choosing to sit on the side line and for good reason.
blockquote>"No, there won’t be. FW 4.0.2/3.2.2 was only released to fix the jailbreakme hole. With FW 4.1 still in its beta stages, it makes no sense to escalate the “cat & mouse” with Apple for FW updates that only fix the jailbreak holes. To quote WOPR, “the only winning move is not to play”."
They do go on to say that a future 4.1x FW jailbreak may be compatible with 4.0.2/3.2.2 but that it will be highly unlikely. For more jailbreak chatter be sure to visit our iPhone Jailbreak and Unlock forum.

They no what they are doing, compared to these whack jobs!!!!!!
Jailbreaking is the only reason I have an iphone and not another phone. Without it, you can only use what Jobs says is okay. And frankly, I think having a calendar on my lock screen so i can quickly view what i have to do that day is something Jobs should agree to.
Other than the people that get 4.0.2 stock, you should have no excuse to have updated.
I am curious, would downloading the 4.0.1 firmware and restoring to it allow you to JB?
Not that I would know, but it is something I would try if I had a 4 or the time.
PS: I have some other good APPS want to recommend. Maybe someone will like it.http://best-video-dvd-converter.blogspot.com/2010/08/best-free-iphone-4-...
