If it's under warranty take it back to Apple and have them exchange it. If no warranty you may be holding on to a door stop I'm afraid.

Because Apple has stopped signing older firmware version for 3Gs.At the moment to revive the handset in normal mode is to restore with 3.1.3 Original firmware.

Or else better wait Unlocking Team's to release solution.
