How to Upgrade Your Old iPhone or iPod touch to iOS 5

If you still have your trusty iPhone 3G or the original iPhone, then you're out of luck for running iOS 5 on your device. But the folks over at Whited00r have changed that. They've created a software distribution that has most of the iOS 5 features, and will work on the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, and first and second generations of iPod touch. Check out the demonstration below, pitting an iPhone 3G running Whited00r's software versus iPhone 3GS running Apple's iOS 5.

Not too shabby, eh?

Whited00r has included low-memory multitasking, similar home screen, folders, reminders, iCloud integration and more. It's also includes Cydia. So, there's no need to update your device anymore. Keep it cheap with this custom jailbreak iOS 5 update (that is obviously... free).

How to Upgrade Your Old iPhone or iPod touch to iOS 5

Wow!

I have several devices that I want to sync but require osi 5.

It still does everything I need it to do, and really don't want to buy a new phone. The problem is on a scale of 1 to 10 of being able to jailbreak it I'm a 3. What do you suggest???
