ok, i got ahold of this iphone 3g. i dunno what firmware its on i havnt tried to restore through itunes yet but i have a feeling if i do it wont work anyways. When i start the phone it shows the apple logo for like 10 secs then it just turns off? and when i try to jailbreak with redsnow is will start doing it and when it gets almost done it will say volume check failed and then it says ERROR! and freezes? any idea? thanks.

Do a restore to 3.1.2 to ensure you are on a firmware you know it is on. Then try redsn0w 0.9.4 on it.

It's an iPhone 3G, it doesn't need blobs for 3.1.3 and below.

Hold shift and click restore and select the firmware.
