Dec 29, 2019 my iPod touch 2generation 8g cannot login or signin to AppStore. Whenever I try to login it just say way it need the latest iOS version. Yeah very annoying. I already tried to use a laptop and connect to iTunes and restore or whatever, it just doesn’t work. IPod touch 2nd gen, iOS 4.2.1.

Whited00r will automatically jailbreak your device, and the latest version of Cydia, 1.1.3, will be installed on it. The biggest advantage of the tool, is that you will get true multitasking, and apps will keep in running state in the background. Whited00r will bring almost all the cosmetic features in iOS 5, like wallpapers, ringtones and other OS sounds. A few small, but significant features have been added to the mix as well, like the word count in Message app, and Reminders app is preinstalled as well. According to the developers of Whited00r, the interface of the custom firmware is designed to resemble iOS 5 as much as possible, without affecting the performance and speed of your device. The complete feature list can be viewed on Whited00r’s official website (www.whited00r.com).
Here is how you can get iOS 5 on any older iDevice, even if it is not jailbroken.
It will take about 15 minutes for the custom IPSW to be installed on your iPhone, and once you restart it, you can start enjoying iOS 5 on your iDevice. However, it must be noticed that, even though Whited00r has been optimized for older devices, the performance and speed will be affected nonetheless. So, it is a tradeoff between getting latest features, or maintaining your devices performance, but at least you have a choice now.
Editor’s Note:We may also point out that the hacktivated version of Whited00r does not come with push notification certs, and YouTube app might not work, either. You can work around that using the Push Doctor or SAM packages from Cydia, or any other solution for the said problem.
