    Did you download the right firmware file? The 3G and 3GS have slightly different features (for example, the 3GS firmware has the compass app, etc). You'll need to download the software that says 'iPhone2,0' in it (2,0 is the model identifier for the iPhone 3G). If it says 'iPhone3,0' then it's 3GS software and will not work on your 3G.

    The iPhone icon to left is for 2G phone, the iPhone icon to right is for 3G and 3GS.

    Check mark that one.

    Sounds like you should get a step by step tutorial from iClarified.
