Whited00r brings iOS 5 to original iPhone, iPod Touch and iPhone 3G

Teach an old dog new tricks by injecting your ageing iDevice with a healthy dose of iOS 5

If you're a faithful original iPhone or iPod Touch owner then it's about time you deserved a reward for sticking by yesterday's iDevice. That's where Whited00r has stepped in, serving up a custom-made OS based on iOS 5 which will work with Apple devices running on iOS 3.1.3.

Whited00r 5.1 is said to optimise your old iPhone to nearly 3G-like speeds, allowing multitasking, custom backgrounds and even a Dropbox storage solution as a stand in for iCloud.

Sadly iOS 5's notification centre is not included as part of Whited00r 5.1, but if you fancy taking it for a spin then head on over to Whited00r where you can jailbreak your device – and breathe new life into your trusty old iCompanion.
