...I installed Whited00r 6 on my iPhone 3G. But I have a problem: I go to App Market and then on App Store. Click on install button, but App Store say me that it is not supported iOS 3.1.3, so I can't install nothing apps!! I have install Whited00r 6, so I don't understand this situation.
...Every app that I selected in App Store say to me that it's required iOS 4.3...
You are talking about Apple's iTunes > App Store
The minimum iOS 4.3 requirement is a push by Apple on purpose
(see [Rant] below) that excludes the following devices because they have ARMv6 CPU's:
iPod Touch 1st Gen or 1G (max iOS 3.1.3)
iPod Touch 2nd Gen or 2G (max iOS 4.2.1)
iPhone Original or 2G (max iOS 3.1.3)
iPhone 3G (max iOS 4.2.1 but it's dog-slow, Whited00r is based on an iOS 3.1.3 optimized with added features and is much more fluid with plenty of free RAM to run apps)
Devices that can understand iOS 4.3 instructions sets and apps that requires it:
ARMv7 = iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod 3G/4G/5G, iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad Mini
ARMv7s = iPhone 5, iPad 4App Market
is a custom app found only in the fast & fluid iOS 3.1.3 based whited00r 6 Custom Firmware
> Home. In App Market you can find iTunes App Store
but if you swipe you will see the App Time Machine Store
with hundreds of free apps, all compatible with iOS 3.1.3
and Whited00r and also the Cydia Store
on the extreme right tab. There are more than 1,000 free apps
in App Time Machine as of 2013-08-29.

UPDATE 3-Jan-2013: the problem seems partially solved for some WhatsApp v2.8.4 users. It seems that:
1- Who was using v2.8.4 and suddenly was kicked out from the service due to the block => WhatsApp v2.8.4 working again now
2- Who tries to install WhatsApp v2.8.4 on a device that wasn't already activated => still not working because verification code is not sent
Neat trick in Time Machine
> Settings > you can turn off Automatic Delete
(and/or Automatic Install) and keep a copy of downloaded apps in /var/mobile/Downloads
. You can copy or transfer to your computer & later copy it back to the same folder & reinstall them with Time Machine > Downloads tab & tapping on it.
Saved apps have a .zip extension: Facebook-071012123155.ipa.zip
. Rename & delete .zip extension & you will have a normal app name
Thank you App Time Machine Team & users who contributed by uploading cracked apps.
A tip for users looking for free apps in the Whited00r Forum: you can use the forum's Advanced
search top right of this page and limit the search to specific Board(s) like the Apps Compatible with iOS 3.1, 3.1.3, 4.1 & 4.2.1
board for example.
Just un-select Check all

*****How To Install Apps (*.ipa or *.deb) Without Using iTunes
I use the free, ad free and standalone (meaning no install necessary! iTunes 10+ required but closed as it uses part of it's functions) iTools
The Home page is in Chinese so just click on English top right, versions Windows and Mac (with less apps info, see off-road-biker's screen captures below) on my computer to install ipa's but other similar iPhone explorers works too like iFunbox
(free but with ads and not as much apps info). You can also use those to copy apps to: /var/mobile/Downloads and install from the phone with the free iFile app
(found on Cydia, when using if it ask for the License, just hit the Later button
). iFile can also install apps in the .deb format
. Or use App Time Machine as described above to install ipa's.
After adding my custom/cracked apps folder(s) via > iTools > Settings > Settings > Local resource > it tells me what is the minimum iOS requirement. And if there are app updates available it tells me automatically including a warning (C)
if iTunes wants to push a copyrighted update to my cracked apps therefore breaking them.
There is no iTools User Guide in English at the present so here is a their messy Facebook page: iTools (Offical Page for English Version)
********[RANT] Lack of iOS compatibility Filters on Apple's iTunes > App Store and Dropping Support for ARMv6 Devices
Apple is famous for thinking about every tiny details when designing their devices so I'm sure they do the same with the iTunes money machine.
They probably do NOT include a simple iOS compatibility filter
to force you to see a bunch of non compatible apps to entice you in buying a newer device. See Apple Planned Obsolescence Apple could easily require
that app developers include iOS backward compatibility code but they don't care about owners of their devices sold just a few years ago. They want to sell new stuff to make more money. They want you to throw perfectly working idevices in the garbage.
Apple makes the software that developers are using to create apps and removed support for ARMv6 CPU code compatibility. See this blog by a developer for more technical explanation: Softly Killing iPhone 3G: The deprecation of armv6
...The discontinuation of support for armv6 has been already a year in the making. In Xcode 4.3 Apple had already removed the armv6 setting...
...Apple didn’t bother... since armv6 deprecation was on their roadmap for a long time...
I opened a support ticket in WhatsApp Support
(do it too!) requesting a 3 digit code to workaround the "your app is too old.." error they replied this:
WhatsApp Support - Claudia G, Dec 27 17:15 (PST):
...The latest version of WhatsApp for iPhone requires iOS 4.3 or later. Regretfully, Apple does not allow new app updates to be compatible with both iOS 6 and older versions of iOS, effectively ending support for iPhone 3G and the original iPhone. Because of Apple's policy change to new App Store submissions, there is nothing we can do at this time for users with older versions of iOS.
*****[Trick] Use Android's Mothership to filter iTunes by iOS 3.0, 3.x, 3.1, 3.1.3, 4.1, 4.2.1 Compatible Apps
Note: Just copy and paste in your browser or in the Google search box when mentioned (site:...). The idea is to use advanced search operators to search iTunes. This is better than list of compatible iOS 3.1.3 iOS 3.x apps & games found on the web with outdated links or linked to iTunes via paid-redirects (like cnet) to newer iOS version requirements that are not compatible with your first and second Generation idevices.
Yields about 633,000 results filtered by iOS 3.0 at the present for a search on the iTunes US
store. For other country stores custom search see below as some apps are available only in the US store and if you live outside the USA your iTunes may tell you that it's not available in your store.
Or paste this in your Google search box
site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 3.0"
Remove 1,000 paid apps by adding the keyword "free"site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 3.0" "free"
By adding keywords you can drill down to a specif app name or type. For example to find free GPS apps:site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 3.0" "free" "GPS"
>> About 25,300 resultssite:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 3.0" "free" "GPS" "tracker"
>> About 355 results
Now search results will show some paid apps because there is the word "free" somewhere in the page so let's excludes prices by adding -
in front of the unwanted keywords (without space between the - and the "keyword"):
site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 3.0" "free" "GPS" "tracker" -"$0.99" -"$1.99" -"$2.99" -"$3.99" -"$4.99" -"$5.99" -"$6.99" -"$7.99" -"$8.99" -"$9.99" -"$10.99" -"$11.99"
>>>>> About 127 results!
Now I want a free GPS tracker that supports the Spanish language so I add "spanish". >>>> About 24 results!site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 3.0" "free" "GPS" "tracker" "spanish" -"$0.99" -"$1.99" -"$2.99" -"$3.99" -"$4.99" -"$5.99" -"$6.99" -"$7.99" -"$8.99" -"$9.99" -"$10.99" -"$11.99"
Basically you just change the keywords like "spanish" to your taste and/or delete some price restrictions (like -"$11.99" for example). Keywords must be between quotes for better results: "
You can also try with some iOS requires variations:site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 2.0"

| site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 3.1"*****How To Find Apps Compatible with iOS 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 & iOS 4.2.1
And if you are not running the faster & more fluid Whited00r firmware but the much slower and RAM hungry iOS 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1 instead
, while all the apps working on lower iOS will also work for you, you can search for newer apps versions by using those advanced search tricks:
site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 4.0"
site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 4.1"
site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 4.2"
site:itunes.apple.com/us/app/ "requires ios 4.2.1"
*****Searching Non USA iTunes Stores
If you live outside the US, change the iTunes country ID in the URL's above. For example to search your store
/app/... otherwise it may return a "not authorize to download from from this store on this computer" error if that app is not available in your country's store when trying to download the app to your computer. It's easy, see How do I find my iTunes App Store URL?
The easiest way to find your App Store URL is by opening iTunes and copying the information directly from the App Store.
The steps included below outline how you can find your App URL.
Search for your app.
Click your app's name and copy the URL (right-click for PC users).
App store URL’s will be in the following format:
So for searching iTunes France for example you would paste this in the Google search box
/app/ "NÚcessite iOS 3.0" "gratuit"
Or go here and hover with your mouse pointer to see the URL: http://www.apple.com/choose-your-country/
For example, Armenia (/am

Goodnight, sweet prince.
We are very sad to announce that Hackulous (and apptrackr.cd) is shutting down...
Since shutdown you will get this error when running Installous:
"Outdated version. Installous will now terminate". (thanks for the pointer tartilc)
There are 2 new sites inspired by apptrackr.cd offering cracked apps: Appdora
but most of them require newer devices. Appaddict offers an iOS app to access their store
but it requires iOS 5
or newer and a jailbroken iPhone 3GS or newer.
There is a Japanese Installous alternative
app that requires iOS 4.0+
(iTools told me that, not their page @ the present) and accesses their store of free apps. See the vShare
page in English, download the .ipa and install using iTools, iFunBox or whatever. In my opinion it's not worth loosing whited00r 6 iOS 3.1.3 base's speed, fluidity, free RAM, looks & App Time Machine perks by installing iOS 4+ on my iPhone 3G as there are several alternatives as described in this thread but I posted this info for those who do have iOS 4.0 and above.apptrackr.cd alternative

>>> About 20,200 results
>>> About 9,260 results | "requires+ios+3.1.3"
>>> About 2,240 results.But there is a caveat:
if the app description says v1.1 requires iOS 3.0 for example but there are also higher versions of that app like 2.0 linked in the page then those newer versions may
require a more recent iOS the only solutions I found so far are to search each [app name] + version number to see what they require or download a couple of them and iTools will tell you the iOS requirements for each of them and will not let you install an app not compatible with your iOS anyway.site:iphonecake.com "requires ios 3.0"
