    You may want to go to 3.1.3 then and use jailbreakme.com. No dfu required for that but you will need a official carrier sim to get past the emergency call screen first.

    The jb methods that don't usually require SIM to activate require DFU mode. You could take it to 3.1.2 and use Blackra1n but Blackra1n can be buggy.

    All the jailbreak tools that can hactivate require dfu now. You would have to go back to 3.1.2 and use blackra1n to find one that doesnt require it. The only issue there is that the cydia blackra1n install is a very old version and doesnt open.

    You could downgrade to 3.1.2, use blackra1n, then use snowbreeze 2.0.2 to make a custom firmware and shift restore to that. you shouldnt need to dfu if you do it in that order.

    edit: beat me

    If you are factory unlocked you can go to what ever fw you want and jailbreak it and never lose your unlocked.

    Yes, you can save SHSH even without being jailbroken. It is perfectly safe.

    Question has anybody experience a real lag of speed on 4.2.1 a iPhone 3G? I don't have any shsh saved so downgrading is no option. Jailbroken with redsnow and added multifunction and wallpaper and screen options. Would 3G function better without multifunction ability?

    You don't need SHSHs to downgrade an iPhone 3G to 3.1.3. Just go ahead and downgrade to 3.1.3 with the normal shift+restore to stock fw. It will fix your lag if you stay on 3.1.3.
