Technically it's possible for some apps/the parts of apps that don't use 4.x+ code features (APIs), but for the ones that do, you're out of luck.

For example, when I was getting PleaseDo to work on 3.x, I found one of the things stopping it was part of an Apple code template for loading the first screen. The code was trying to access a property of the main window (a window contains all the on-screen views) to set the content on the screen. The property was only available in 4.x+ so I had to write code to manually manage the contents of the main window.

That wasn't difficult to do, but the point is that a lot of App Store apps have been developed with the 4.x tools (SDK) or newer, and as the majority of apps keep the default template code for loading the screen contents, those apps will always crash instantly during the loading process on 3.x. There is no way to change this behaviour in any app without access to its source code.

Also, Apple introduced a new method for managing screen contents in the iOS 5 SDK called Storyboards which is even more incompatible with 3.x. As it's probably one of the de facto ways for managing screen contents in newer apps, most apps built with the iOS 5 SDK are also totally incompatible with 3.x.

I'm working on the PleaseDo project to bring Siri functionality to older iDevices. Please see this thread for regular updates on it: http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=4398

See it in action! (latest video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fguGpUH7SEs
