    You'll also notice that most of the apps don't work; Cydia's icon is white; the Phone icon is gone; iTunes won't backup the iPhone; all as reported in the comments following this tutorial.
    Basically, redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 won't jailbreak the final 4.1 firmware properly. It was for the beta releases. You'll have to wait for an update to jailbreak 4.1 on iPhone 3G.

    I tried it myself and confirm all the above + the iPhone won't turn off. Just get it in DFU mode and restore. Just did that.

    I would recommend a downgrade to either 3.1.x or 4.0.x.

    I'm guessing you tried to use Redsn0w to JB 4.1
    As dzp replied Redsn0w hasn't been updated to JB 4.1 yet, thus all the issues.
    Others who have done the same, have documented many of the same issues.

    Plug your phone via USB and go through the motion of putting it in DFU mode. <<< google it!
    iTunes will prompt you to restore.
    That's how I did it.

    Well, did you use the .ipsw file for an older firmware version ?
    You can download any firmware for your device from here and then alt+click (shift+click on Windows) the Restore button in iTunes to select the firmware you downloaded. If you simply click the Restore button, iTunes will load the current firmware.

    So you can downgrade from 4.1? Maybe I misunderstood but I thought you couldnt.

    Ive tried that but it keeps saying error 3014... and wont downgrade
    im not sure if i have the SHSH saved, the last time i updated my phone was 2 years ago, so unless it did it by itself then, I have no clue what it is
