Do you want to install iOS 7 on iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G? Here's how to do it with …


Whited00r 7: here is the program to install iOS 7 also on iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G

Who among you has an iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G at home? As you know, these devices have not been supported by Apple for a long time, as they are not considered powerful enough to support the new features introduced by iOS 6 and iOS 7.

Apparently, however, although with some modifications, it is still possible to install iOS 7 on iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G thanks to a dedicated firmware, made by some developers, who have modified and lightened iOS 7 to allow users to install it on their older devices such as iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G.

So if you still have one of these two Apple products at home, know that you can safelyinstall iOS 7 on iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G thanks to the WhiteD00r 7 firmware, just updated to fully support iOS 7, the latest operating system released by Apple.

Let's not go too long, then, and let's see together immediately how to install iOS 7 on iPhone 2G (model MB only, NOT MC) and iPhone 3G with WhiteD00r 7.

Before starting, however, I think it is necessary to make some clarifications.

First of all, what WhiteD00r?WhiteD00r a custom jailbroken firmware (already equipped with jailbreak therefore, with Cydia pre-installed), based on iOS 3.1.3, which can normally be installed through iTunes even by less experienced users. This firmware only compatible withiPhone 2G,iPhone 3G,iPod touch 1G, iPod touch 2G.As you can see, the iPhone 3GS is currently excluded from the project, but not said that in the future it will not be included among the supported devices.

Does WhiteD00r void the device warranty? Yes, the guarantee is lost. But being a custom firmware available for old devices, in principle you can install it safely, since now iPod Touch 2G and iPhone 3G are no longer covered by the warranty.

What is WhiteD00r used for? What does it do? Why should you install it?As we have anticipated, WhiteD00r brings the latest news of iOS 7 on devices that would not be compatible with this Apple operating system. In practice, it allows all users (except those who own an iPhone 3GS) to enjoy all the main news of iOS 7 even if their device is not officially supported by Apple. WhiteD00r, therefore, make your iPhone or iPod absolutely identical, in appearance and functionality, to any other Apple device that has been officially updated to iOS 7. Obviously not all features will be available, but let's say that a good part of the news of iOS 7 has been also introduced on older devices thanks to this custom firmware. Just to get a more precise idea about WhiteD00r, imagine it as if it were the CyanogenMod custom firmware for Android:when companies do not update their devices because they are too old or dated, CyanogenMod arrives which brings the latest features of the latest Android releases also to older smartphones and tablets. Here, WhiteD00r does the same thing, but on iOS, then on iPhone and iPod.

Among the main features introduced by WhiteD00r 7, we find:

  • push notifications in the lock screen with the classic blurry effect of iOS7
  • banners within the whole operating system
  • “App Market which includes App Store
  • Cydia
  • AppTimeMachine: a particular digital store that collects old versions of apps that are no longer compatible with older firmware, ready for installation
  • new Multitasking
  • Control Center
  • much more.
