    While mpafr012 is INCORRECT, your path to jailbreaking is not an easy one.

    Ok, so you have an iPhone 3G ( not the 3GS ) at least based on the model # you provided.

    Give this walk through a shot: iOS 4.0 Jailbreak Redsn0w 0.9.5 for Windows and Mac | Redmond Pie

    Hope this helps.

    IF you indeed do have a 3G, downgrade to 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 before you jailbreak

    hell, even if you do not jailbreak, still downgrade, you'll be glad you did

    At least you've come to the right place to find out and your NOT afraid to search for your solution. As Stated above, It can be done... Gingerly. I've attached a few pic's for proof. 3G 8GB Upgraded to 4.0.1 JB to 4.0 (Work still in progress...) Forgot to mention Running PC Vista. using Mobile Terminal, iPhone Xplorer, 1 or 2 other tools, LOTS of LUCK and GRACE. A little bit of Knowledge.(I've been told... that can be dangerous). LOL
    Now go out there and have fun.
