    Put it in DFU mode, then connect it to iTunes, it should say it's found a device in DFU or whatever, then choose the firmware IPSW, it should be iPhone1,2_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw and it should restore your iPhone to 4.0

    I too have a 3G and was severely disappointed with iOS 4. It adds virtually *nothing* to a 3G.

    Lifehacker has a pretty easy to follow article on how to jailbreak and get all the iOS 4 features on the old 3G. The only thing I've discovered is Pandora does not cooperate well with a GPS in the background, but other than that, most multitasking has been flawless for me.
