I guess we can say whited00r.. is DEAD.

Okay, I don't want to be rude but everybody knows: Whited00r is WhiteD3ad.

Most contributors left, no updates since 2 years. Guys, it's over.
iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G etc. are extremely slow devices. It's not a big surprise that Apple dropped the support for them. Just get a new one. iPhone 5S is about 200-300$ right now.

Bye, I'll never come here back again.

We've been busy with other things for newer devices with the Grayd00r project.

Once that is done and stable, we backport what we can to whited00r, which leaves it open to others to better modify the system as time goes on so no one is relying 100% on us for updates and users can make their own mods, not just for higher-iOS looks either. (although users will be able to do that as well, much easier than they can with whited00r).

That's taken from
Grayd00r Custom Firmware for iOS 5 - iPod touch 3G and iPad 1G

The future of Whited00r
No, we haven't completely forgotten whited00r!  I know there hasn't been much word about anything here, and that's mostly because we have been busy putting together Grayd00r.
The plan for Whited00r is to back port what we can from Grayd00r once it is complete and stable. It doesn't make sense trying to port anything *before* then as it would just be lots more work to do everything twice and debug twice on everything every time we made a small update.
It makes sense to do it after one product is completed so we know it works there and then back port it.
No ETA, as always, and we haven't started on anything here yet. 

However, just know that the way Grayd00r handles things is much better, and provides much more longevity in terms of customization and feature support. We used what we learned from the releases of whited00r previously to try and better set up Grayd00r.

Glad you have a new device though!  I do too and have for the whole time I've been involved with whited00r ;)  I just like to keep things going for users. There are lots of people still who use first and second generation iOS devices, and I'd like to still provide an option for them for customizing it better :)

Whited00r is not dead, dammit ! Why do people always thinks that ?!
The devs are actually working on another project called Grayd00r (for iOS 5 devices).
If you wanna by a new iPhone, go ahead, we're not keeping you. But if we want to stay on older devices for whatever reasons, that's our choice.

I am impressed with the fast and informative response!  I remembered WhiteD00R from years ago ( back when I wasnt quite ready to let go of my iPhone 3G ) and this project kept me going until I could upgrade.

Now I need a small phone to take to the gym.  I dont want to hunk around my expensive 6S Plus.  So I busted out the old iPhone installed WhiteD00R and am ready to hit the gym. 

Thanks for your continued evolvement and support!

One of the times I do check and respond on the forums for now ;)  That will change later on and I'll respond more of course once Grayd00r is done.

That is what I use my iOS 3 devices for as well, and I figure there will always be uses for older devices, even if not for a main device.
