Basic Instructions? iPhone 3G
« on: December 16, 2012, 09:22:44 PM »
I go to download Whited00r and can do that. I see instructions for doing everything needed AFTER it's installed but I am unable to find simple instructinos on how to install Whited00r.

If I download directly, I don't know what to do with downloaded file. If I choose to "run" from the download, then nothing happens.

Obvoiusly this is a whited00r basic problem and since I am asking, you'll need to expalin it to me like you were explaining to a five year old child.

THANKS!
I Googled and was taken to the page after this one. All I needed was the one line of text about opening iTunes and holding Shift as I restored.
I am trying this now.
THANKS again!

I may have just wasted half a day. The only reason I did this Whited00r "upgrade" was to get iOS5 on the phone. I did this based on a YouTube video. Now that I have completed the process, I still can not download Facebook (the iOS is too low). I do not see how to upgrade to a higher iOS to actually make the phone useful.
What am I doing wrong?
How do I get a higher iOS on the iPhone 3G to actually make it a useful device?

There is no way to get the device to a higher iOS. Whited00r simply gives the look and feel of iOS6, as well as some of the features. There is no way to make apps work on lower firmwares though.   You can try opening the app market and swiping to the left/right until you find AppTimeMachine, and searching for the app you want there.

Lions and tigers and bears, OH MY!

There is one huge learning curve here I was not expecting.

But it's starting to settle in to my brain.

THANKS again!

The AppTimeMachine is your best option for getting apps that actually work on your device. They are normally the last version that supported 3.1.3.
