He has an obsession with that little company in Cupertino...

If you’re not quite sure what you’re doing, the Whited00r team has even provided a simple step-by-step guide to get you going.

Once installed, the software provides you with all of those things that make the latest i OS releases really great, including Reminders, Newsstand, home screen folders, multitasking, and custom wallpapers.

Whited00r looks to be pretty huge for those who own older i OS devices, especially as it’s so easy to install.

The Whited00r forums are full of users who have managed to install the software successfully, and are now delighted with all the new features they have access to.

But those who are still rocking the first-generation i Phone (i Phone 2G), the i Phone 3G, or the first- and second-generation i Pod touch, are unable to enjoy the i OS 5 update because their devices just aren’t compatible. But thanks to something called “Whited00r,” it’s incredibly simple to install Apple’s latest operating system.

The Whited00r development team have created a custom build of the i OS 5 software that has been designed for Apple’s ARM6 family of devices. All you have to do is download the IPSW file and install it to your device using i Tunes — just like you would an official IPSW file.

We take a look at the i Phone and i Pad models that are worth updating and the ones you should probably hold off.

We’ll update with our experiences over the coming days to let you know how we get on with the latest i OS update on other devices.

Will you be installing Whited00r on your old i OS devices?
