iPhone 2G also getting comfy with iPhone OS 4.0 down the road?
Even to this day, the original iPhone 2G can still somehow manage to cause some people to take notice as its aluminum rear cover exudes that polished feel that doesn't quite feel the same with the glossy black plastic casing of the current iPhone 3GS. Conversely, there is a stark difference in performance between the two handsets – which is the sole Achilles Heel for the iPhone 2G as it's being shunned from iPhone OS 4.0. Thankfully it doesn't mean that it's not possible for the aging handset to play host to the upcoming latest version of the iPhone OS as there are hackers out there that are attempting to do the impossible. Although the original iPhone was given free firmware upgrades to iPhone OS 3.1.3, Apple hastily applied the brakes for further upgrade support for it. Apparently the group of people over at fittingstorm are doing their part in rewriting the iPhone OS 4.0 beta and provide a custom software which will be able to run on the aging iPhone 2G handset. They're looking at all the fine details of it and fine tuning things as they continue to study the architecture of the previously released Apple firmware. In the end, owners of the iPhone 2G can hold on to that glimmer of hope and shun away those temptations of upgrading to a newer and supported iPhone.
