Install Cydia is a must check, as that will enable you to download jailbroke apps and settings. Multi-Tasking will enable you to have multi-tasking just like users who have iPhone 3GS, BUT please take note that enabling Multi-Tasking will SLOW DOWN your iPhone 3G by quite abit.

I, Myself have tried it, it is slow… so if you still wish to have multi-tasking, please check on it.
