Be patient in following the steps above, that's exactly how it should be done. Don't be scared to try it over and over again till you figure it out. Cheers!

Will iTunes recognize it? You might need to restore it and then rejailbreak it. If you have tried everything and nothing works it might be time to throw in the towel and just restore and then at least you get your phone back. Luckily with the 3G it will remain an option to jailbreak it no matter what.

Re: How to Unbrick your iPhone

OK, I changed up my thought process. What you probably need is DFU mode. Then iTunes will see it and force you to restore it. But you will restore it using a custom firmware made with Sn0breeze.

  • So to force your iPhone into DFU mode follow these instructions.
    How To Enter DFU Mode Without Home Or Power Button Tutorial
  • I'm not familiar with the link they offer for firmware files so instead use this source:
    Firmware files
  • So after downloading the ipsw make a copy and stick in in a folder on your desktop. Use Sn0wbreeze to make a custom firmware from this copy you made in the folder on your desktop. The original copy will get butchered in the instructions for getting you into DFU.
    Download Sn0wbreeze It's the link at the bottom of the page.
 

I assume you are using Windows. Once you have your custom ipsw and your iPhone is in DFU mode just go to iTunes and press and hold the Shift button while clicking restore. iTunes will ask you to browse to your ipsw. (if you're on a Mac it's Option + Restore) This is where you select the custom ipsw. If all goes well when it's done you should have a rejailbroken 3G. Just make sure you install SBSettings so you have a software power button.
Good luck

Correct. SBSettings won't help till you can boot the iPhone.
