One of the features of whited00r seems to be that it speeds up old devices? Have you tried it?

I have one, they are selling for about £50 on eBay but I was thinking of giving it to my son to play angry birds and plants vs zombies on but I need old version IPA that worked on iOS 4.2.1 which proving hard to find... Plenty of sites listing them, but links are dead etc. I don't want to jailbreak it as it slowed it down so any tips/links would be a help....

I find horrifying to see the consumerist mentality on this thread.

This device is still perfectly capable of doing what it was intended for it: A comunication device.

Install whitedoor on it and use it as a backup phone or give it away.

IT'S STILL USEFUL.

I agree, I don't want to throw it away, just can't install many apps from the App Store because of the OS version or hardware limitations.. For example, angry birds rio will install because of iOS version but doesn't run because of hardware features lacking.

Fortunately whitedoor includes it's own App Store with compatible apps for your device.

They appear to be cracked versions specifically for jail broken devices. I'm after untouched IPA files.

Alot of people recommended useful ideas like using it as a remote, or replace your iPhone 4 as a radio. I have a 3GS and still deciding if I want to keep it or sell it.

What version of iOS is it running? Can you not just put iOS3 on it and keep it. It will be perfectly functional and fast if you don't put anything above iOS4 on it.

Use it as a music player.
