I and both kids have ipod 2g.  So many apps. require iOS 4.3 update which we can not get because the ipod 2g is no longer supported by Apple.  We can't really afford to buy new ipods.  I found firmware called whited00r which has a download for older devices that is supposed to be like loading the iOS 4.3 update. Has anyone heard of it or tried it?  Thanks for any info. you might have.

iPod touch, iOS 4.2

    Unfortunately, iOS 4.2.1 is the highest for the 2nd generation iPod touch. Any other mods or "custom firmwares" are not allowed by Apple or on the forums. May I suggest deleting newer versions of apps you want from the iTunes library folder, and installing those, hopefully that may help.

    Are you using a PC or a Mac?

    This operation is a little complicated.


    First, head to wherever your iTunes folder is. (Default is under my music)

    Now, find the "mobile applications" folder.

    Prepare a large portable hard drive or USB flash drive.

    Now, cut the newer app versions to the hard drive or USB.  (If there's Facebook 1.4 and 1.5 and 1.6, keep the 1.4. The earliest one) *keep only the earliest versions of each app*


    Wait for them all to cut the the hard drive or USB, and fire up iTunes. Try to sync and see if it complains about iOS 4.3 and all that. Note: don't upgrade the apps or this will have to be done again.
