First of all, greenpois0n as of right now (rc5_b4) does not work with iPhone 3G. You probably ran into the problem I did, where it actually IS in DFU mode, with a black screen, so you think it's off. Fix this by holding both home and sleep buttons down for about ten seconds, then release and wait a few seconds and you should be able to turn it back on as normal.

Try loading up iTunes and plugging it back in. It should say in iTunes that it has found a device in recovery mode. Restore your iPhone with iTunes and try the jailbreak again.
