Connect your iPhone to your computer. Let it sync and backup your iPhone.

Press Shift +Restore (Windows) or Option + Restore (Mac) and select the 2.0.2 firmware file you downloaded.

Also make sure it is the correct firmware file for your 3G iPhone. (ie iPhone1,2_2.0.2_5C1_Restore.ipsw)

Hold down alt-option and hit the restore button.

You'll use iTunes to do this but it won't download the firmware (not FireWire) again.
Select firmware and off you go.

Beaten. :)
