    How did you erase it? You may have to restore and re-jailbreak.

    Try holding the power and home buttons to get it to re-boot. Most likely that won't work but worth a try.
    You'll have to put the phone in DFU mode and then restore in iTunes and re-jailbreak it

    DFU mode
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.

    Alternative method.
    Step 1. While the device is on, hold down the Sleep / Wake and Home buttons for exactly 10 seconds, the device will restart.
    Step 2. Release the Sleep / Wake button, but keep holding down the Home button for another 10 seconds.
    Step 3. Release the Home button.

    Once it is in DFU mode, restore it in iTunes then jailbreak it.

    Mac or PC? Me personally I would use redsn0w it's more stable, but what ever you choose.
    As far as firmware that's also your choice, 3.0, 3.0.1

    That's for 2.2.1, are you sure you using the correct pwnage tool?
    Why not update to 3.0 and use redsn0w?

    Did you update your firmware in iTunes to 3.0?

    You need iTunes 8.2, then DFU and do a shift/click restore phone to the new firmware you have. Let it load then run redsn0w.
