Custom Firmware Brings IOS 7 Features To Really Old IPhones

By 02:33 Wed, 21 Jul 2021 Comments

iOS has a growing developer community and while it's very far from the jungle of custom ROMs available for Android, here's a start. The Whited00r firmware brings iOS 7 see and feel to devices that are no longer supported by Apple.

The supported devices include the original iPhone, the iPhone 3G, the first and second-generation iPod touch. The related Grayd00r project supports the third-acquire iPod Touch and the original iPad.

Note that despite the looks, Whited00r is actually based on iOS 3.x. That assumed it includes multitasking, control center, Siri, lockclassy screen notifications and recent capturing camera app with video recording.

Both the official App Store and Cydia are available, though haged in mind that many apps will not run on the older OS. That's where the AppTimeMachine feature steps in and gives you access to applications that no longer support iOS 3.x.

The custom Read-Only Memory (ROM) is currently at version 7.1 and will acquire over-the-air updates via Cydia. The installation process can be done from a Windows Personal Computer (PC) or a Mac. For locked iPhones there is a special version of the software that will unlock the device first.

This probably goes without saying, but Whited00r is anything but official so installing this is done at your own risk.
