Well it also requires 4.2.1!

And unless you've already saved your 4.2.1 SHSH's, you can't update to 4.2.1, it will force you to 4.3, which isn't jailbroken yet.

Your best bet is to reboot your phone and try limera1n, or maybe

Just restore/update to stock 4.2.1 via itunes as thats the end of the road for the iphone 3G, no shsh required, then jailbreak untethered with Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8

Yeah, 2G ipod and 3G iphone....all over for firmware updates, should be able to restore to 4.2.1 forever just using itunes normally

I guess there's at least 1 benefit to owning obsolete technology. ;)

If it's a 3G, Greenpois0n doesn't support it, and you can use sn0wbreeze or pwnagetool. Err, if you have your SHSH's saved already.

what do I do about it freezing? Can I just turn it off?

Hold power/home until the Apple logo comes up, then let go and it should boot. Failing that, turn it off if you can, then on.
