Apple's iOS 5 software offers some pretty awesome features that make using an iOS device all the more enjoyable. Features like wireless iTunes syncing, iCloud backups, Notification Center, and Twitter integration are all things that make iOS users wonder how they ever got by prior to iOS 5.
But those who are still rocking the first-generation iPhone (iPhone 2G), the iPhone 3G, or the first- and second-generation iPod touch, are unable to enjoy the iOS 5 update because their devices just aren't compatible. Well, they're not officially compatible. But thanks to something called "Whited00r," it's incredibly simple to install Apple's latest operating system.
The Whited00r development team have created a custom build of the iOS 5 software that has been designed for Apple's ARM6 family of devices. That's the early iOS devices listed above. All you have to do is download the IPSW file and install it to your device using iTunes — just like you would an official IPSW file. If you're not quite sure what you're doing, the Whited00r team has even provided a simple step-by-step guide to get you going.
Once installed, the software provides you with all of those things that make the latest iOS releases really great, including Reminders, Newsstand, home screen folders, multitasking, and custom wallpapers. There's even a custom version of iCloud that uses Dropbox for cloud storage, though you won't get access to all of the features iCloud usually provides.
Whited00r looks to be pretty huge for those who own older iOS devices, especially as it's so easy to install. The Whited00r forums are full of users who have managed to install the software successfully, and are now delighted with all the new features they have access to.
Will you be installing Whited00r on your old iOS devices?
