Although Apple is one of the best handset-makers around when it comes to supporting older devices, it does have a cutoff point. And for iOS 7, that cutoff point was the iPhone 4, meaning you can not install the new firmware on devices older than that.

But never fear! If you happen to be running an older device, you can still get the look and feel of iOS 7 thanks to Whited00r 7. The modded firmware includes an iOS 7-style UI with card multitasking, Control Center, push notifications, and much more…

From the Whited00r website:

“Whited00r 7 brings the look and feel of iOS7 to older devices no longer supported by Apple. Our firmware has been engineered to replicate iOS7 down to the smallest detail. Whited00r’s first priority is speed. None of the modifications Whited00r makes to your device will slow it down.

It includes Push Notifications:

“Whited00r includes Amazing iOS7-like Push Notifications on the Lockscreen with blur-effect and banner alerts. Touch on the Notification to open the corresponding application. Whited00r also allows you to enable Push Notifications on an unlocked iPhone with a simple Graphic User Interface in Settings that will automate the whole process.

And access to multiple app stores:

“Whited00r provides access to both the official AppStore and Cydia. Whited00r also offers a unique service called AppTimeMachine. This exclusive service contains many applications that dropped support for older devices.”

The re-engineered firmware also includes a retooled camera app, with video recording capabilities, full multitasking, iOS 7’s Control Center, and Voice Control. And users have the ability to customize, enable and disable features on the fly via Settings.


Whited00r has been around for years now, breathing life into older devices. Be careful not to confuse it with jailbreaking though, as it uses a modified version of Apple’s code. But it’s well-known for its ability to bring new features to legacy hardware.

    I have checked their website yesterday, and they dont have anything for iphone 3GS. And also they are modifying iOS 3.1.3 and 4.x

    No 3rd Gen iPod Touch?

      The new boot rom on iPhone 3Gs and above and iPod touch 3G and above prevent the installation of custom firmwares 🙁

      • Ryan / reeὶὶkѳ™

        pretty sure you can still install custom firmwares on those devices but only tethered.

      • Kamal Ahmad

        Some 3gs models have old bootrom which can be exploited. Even my cousin’s 3gs has old bootrom.

      • Robert Coleman

        I litterally just finished installing a custom firmware on a new bootrom 3gs. It was a tethered jailbreak, but there was a tool available in Cydia that switched it over to a untethered jailbreak. So this should work just fine.

      • Livestrong Ajit

        was it on a 3G or seriously a 3GS

    the device itself is already slow when running on apple’s official firmware so how would this not cause the device to run even slower

    • Bieberkinz

      Actually, since this is built off iOS 3.1.3, the device runs pretty good for everything that has been added, like animations and things like control center.

      Of course, it’s not the fastest, but based off what I saw, it runs decent. And as always, you can choose what you want with the whited00r settings.

      It’s really iOS 3.1.3 but with preinstalled with themes and tweaks. If you have a iDevice that was released before the 3GS, I would recommend it. Especially to show off to your non techy friends who own iPhones but were in that iOS 7 hype.

  • Zod

    Can they bring back ios 6 to the iPhone 4? My SHSH blobs don’t work and I hate iOS 7 😛

    • Jacques Hragar

      Hahah no chance sorry friend

  • Abdl

  • amanjain

    what about 3gs users:-(

    • Kamal Ahmad

      Some 3GS models have old bootrom. But most of the 3gs users are on iOS 6 and this only works on iOS 3. :/

  • Burge

    And then you can install a ios 6 theme because you don’t like ios 7

    • CPVideoMaker101

      get an older version of whited00r then

      • Burge

    Whited00r is good.. it wont make ur device slower. I have used it in my old iPhone 3G which ran iOS 6. Its the iOS 6 based theme pre installed in the OS. It was fun….

  • ✪ aidan harris ✪

    I used to use this on my old iPhone 3G and it was brilliant. FairPlay to them for keeping older devices alive…

  • Huntz

    Would love to try this on my 3GS but I don’t think it is as good as my 6.1.2 Evasion JB.

  • bobism
