    iOS 4.2.1 is the last update available for the iPhone 3G.  That is end of the line for that model.  The iPhone 3G lacks the hardware needed for later iOS versions

    You're welcome.

     

    That's the nature of the beast.  Apps can't be made backwards compatible for obsolete hardware forever.
