    Right firstly i just wnat to run through a few things before i jailbreak my iPhone 3G and ask a few questions:
    1) Will i be able to restore all the files i had on my iphone previously? including applications i have payed for, so everything will go back on just as i left it?
    2) After i had jailbroken my ipod touch 2G i noticed significant increases in the amount of times it froze and that it slowed down quite a bit when in use will the same happen for my iphone?
    I think that is everything, if i have any more questions i'll keep them in this thread. Any help with this would be much appreciated

    1) yes. as long as you have a back up on iTunes/your computer
    2) sometimes. but you can always DFU + Restore + Rejailbreak and that usually solves most problems

    make sure to use redsn0w for jailbreaking 3.0...you don't have to restore.

    Ok thanks, will redsn0w just work as an updating firmware tool then? that will keep all my current files in tact in there and just edit the firmware like itunes does when you perform a legal firmware upgrade?

    nah you'll need to install the firmware you want to jailbreak b4 using redsn0w so that they match up otherwise you'll mess up the software

    trust me i tried to do that. lol

    make sure you're running 3.0 on ur iphone
    download redsn0w
    download the 3.0 firmware for iphone to your desktop (should be called something like iphone 3g, 1_3.0_Restore)
    run redsn0w and follow its instructions

    w/ redsn0w you don't need to restore to jailbreak.

    yeah its already on 3.0, i wasnt sure if i had to restore to a blank 3.0 firmware with nothing on it before i jailbroke it. I saw a few guides on the internet saying i did and some saying i didnt so was most confused there, seeing as how you haven't mentiond it then hopefully i shouldnt have to do it, i'll jailbreak it tonight/tomorrow and see how it goes and post the results
