Whited00r: Modded 3.1.3 Firmware To Replicate iOS4: Now With Folders


We talked about whited00r in the past, but if you are not familiar with the project, whited00r is a custom firmware for old device and provides support for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 1G and iPod Touch 2G. whited00r allow to install, jailbreak and unlock a pseudo- iOS4 on your iPhone 2G and iPod Touch 1G. The firmware is based on v3.1.x

To improve whited00r user experience, the developer has implemented Folders for old devices running iOS3. If you device runs slow on iOS4, you could downgrade to 3.1.x firmwares without losing Folder feature.

Developer’s note: This process is safe and tested, but you are doing at your own risk. For this reason we suggest to backup your data. Anyway we absolutely racommend to make a clean installation without restoring backup. We will not provide support if this rule is not respected.

How To:

1. Choose and download the right firmware for your device from the download page . Choose the unlocked version only if you want to unlock carrier lock or you want to skip activation process. You will find the whited00r firmware (ipsw) decompressing the zip folder.

2. Open iTunes on your device page. Click on RESTORE holding ALT (MacOS) or SHIFT (Windows) at the same time and select the whited00r firmware from you computer. You could get some errors messages during installation. In this case follow this guide.

3. After installation (could take up to 15 minutes) iTunes will ask you if you want to restore backup. Please choose “Set up a new iPhone/iPod” to improve speed and avoid strange problems.

4. You could experience Mobile Substrate crashes caused by a permission error. In this case, you will have to manually fix it.

4.1 iOS3 Folders are included in v4.0 BETA. They need a manual fix to permissions to get them running. Open iFile (included) and follow the screenshot below:


6. For more info, and support visit the official page…

Wow, took me no time to download and install, very simple. I had my 3g running pretty good on 4.1, but it is so much better on 3.1.

The folders are themeable too.


Only issue I am having is the icons will not stay in the same place. I will be donating if this gets fixed when this comes out of Beta.

I recently installed this on my friends 3G and now its runs more smoothly however half of the apps cant be installed because he is not on an IOS 4.0 or higher. Thats the only downfall i see for it. Hopefully they release a IOS4 based version for 3G sometime.

This was pretty smooth on my old 3G. There were a few hiccups and I couldn't figure out how to activate the flashlight. Good though

Whited00r iOS4 Based

This firmware is a milestone for a future release of whited00r firmware based on official iOS4 by Apple..

This firmware is not as good as the classic one, since iOS4 is really slow on iPhone 3G, but in future whited00r iOS4 based will be a good solution for some users.

Refer to this forum thread for informations.
iOS4 Custom Firmware for iPhone 3G iOS4 Based

ONLY FOR BETA TESTER: DON’T ASK FOR SUPPORT

http://www.multiupload.com/8TZ9XSNYLD

Not unlocked , you need to activate the firmware via itunes.Since there is no firmware that Redsnow accepts to activate the firmware ,you need to have the option to activate it legit.
If you attempt to use any firmware that redsnow accepts you will get screen flickering , and now that sucks for sure .
Just a warning.
The Advance of this firmware is some iOs4 based cydia and most appstore apps are working with this firmware .

What ive learned is that certain cydia apps dont like this fake .

Folderenhancer doesnt work .

Springtomize , dreamboard ,installous 4, yourtube2 are working with it.

And what also maybe important is for certain people is that this firmware supports adding stuff from the ipod to Music apps from the Appstore .
I use this firmware on my old 3g and iam mostly pretty fine with it .Better then the 3.1.3 firmware that no actual app supports .

i used wd5.1, its very good, bugs usually happened when you try to stack icons to create folders, but quick respring will fix it.

but now since i need ios4 apps i use cfw with 4.2.1 instead of wd5.1. still waiting for redd00r to come (their cfw based on 4.2.1)
