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.

We’ve gotten some complaints in the past that we don’t give older iPhones any lovin’. The truth is, we try to keep up with innovation in the jailbreak community and there just typically isn’t much of that going on for devices older than the 3GS. Especially since Apple stopped supporting them.
But for folks with older iDevices that really want to join in on the jailbreaking festivities, check out Whited00r. If you haven’t heard about this cool little project, it’s essentially a firmware file that has been modified to include multitasking, video recording and oh yeah, it’s jailbroken…

As many of you know, with the release of iOS 4.0 Apple discontinued support for the iPhone 2G as well as the iPod Touch 1G. This left iPhone 2G and iPod Touch 1G stuck on iOS 3.1.3 for life. Furthermore, while Apple did end up upgrading the iPhone 3G (which has the same amount of RAM/processor as the iPhone 2G), 3G owners experienced a great deal of problems after updating to 4.0. The OS was incredibly slow and was barely usable.
After various reports and angry iPhone 3G users, Apple began to look into the issue and stated the issues would be resolved in iOS 4.2.1. When iOS 4.2.1 came around, performance had been improved on the iPhone 3G, but it was still quite slow. Most users decided to downgrade/remain on iOS 3.1.3.
