    Try this method How to Jailbreak/Unlock 3.1.3 iPhone 2G Windows & OS X, it worked well with 2G.

    Do a restore to stock 3.1.3.

    Get Redsn0w 0.9.4 (get a 3.1.2 ipsw for this part)

    Run Redsn0w on your device after you successfully restore to 3.1.3.

    Select in Redsn0w the 3.1.2 ipsw, select "Cydia" and "Unlock"

    Follow on-screen prompts

    Go to Cydia and install Ultrasn0w (if you want to use another carrier) but if you want to use it just as an iPod then don't bother with the unlocking part. Just the jb should do the trick.
