Just to be clear, if you get any graphics on the screen at all, it is not DFU mode but instead recovery mode. DFU mode is a black screen, but the iPhone is still detected by iTunes.

You have a 2G iPhone, don't try techniques designed for 3GS or 3G, they generally won't work.
Make a copy of your iTunes backup, put that copy in a different directory as the default backup location will be overwritten later with a fresh backup. You may be able to selectively recover some of your files if you keep your current backup safe.
Put the iPhone into proper DFU mode.
Restore iPhone OS 3.1.2, jailbreak with blacksn0w (if you must, redsn0w and pwnagetool provide much better jailbreaks)
Set your iPhone up as new, do NOT restore from backup.
