Wait until the battery dies completely, then try a stock restore in iTunes.

I also faced this problem twice the only option that you have is to wait till the battries of the phone completely discharge. until den u cannot do anything.

Once the battries are dead then the NOR flash files get reset themselves and you will be able to restore the phone again .

Turn on DFU mode, restore to stock 6.1 using redsn0w. In this way your baseband won't be updated. If have original sim, just put it, and jailbreak using evasi0n. If not, use tethered jailbreak by redsn0w, go to cydia, search for evasi0n 6.x untethered, install and reboot. This should work.

I am talking about restore not about making custom firmware. Restore to 6.1 is supported for iPhone 3GS. After restore just use recovery fix button. If you don't like this way, use sn0wbreeze to create custom firmware, put iPhone in pwned DFU and restore using iTunes. That's your call. But restore using redsn0w works as well.
