From what I understand, bootneuter will unlock the 2G regardless of what iPhone OS and/or baseband you have installed.

Read the tutorial. That covers ALL iphone models except for the new 3GS. You can upgrade your firmware to 3.0 and jailbreak it without any problems. Just be sure to sync your phone to iTunes BEFORE you jailbreak in order to save any data you may have that you want to keep, then make a backup of your phone, just in case things go wrong and you want to restore it.

What I recommend is upgrading to 3.0 via iTunes normally. Once you do that, make a new 3.0 backup of your iPhone. After you've done all of those things, then use the guide that Bad Ash posted a link to and you're not going to have any problems.

Good luck.
