    greenpoison doesnt work on iphone 3G. You have to use redsnow 0.9.6rc8 or 0.9.6rc19 to jailbreak that.

    Use firefox and go to the downloads section of this site (top of page) and download a copy of the 4.2.1 firmware for iPhone 3G. Then get one of the redsnow's I mentioned (google or go to iPhone dev blog) and point redsnow to that firmware file.

    Yes. firefox will save it in the correct format for you so that you dont have to rename the extension.

    I've used greenpoison only on the i4. Works great with a little bit of effort. You are better off with redsn0w.
