No you can't update iPhone 3G to iOS 6.
If you will update with whited00r you will actually get iOS 3.1.3 which is modified version of iOS by whited00r. And version of whited00r (not iOS) is 6.
It's more explained here: http://pjstrnad.com/iphone-3g-update-ios-6-possible/ .
It took me two days to figure that .. I think I reinstalled my iPhone about 20 times :)
Try this method from Whited00r: http://www.whited00r.com/ ... you can use this system with locked or unlocked iPhone 3g phones
I don't agree at all with "russofford', since after having downloaded (Whited00r.com), my iphone 3G has
died totaly. I suggest to anyone " do not try this method for IOS 6."
Iphone 3G is too old and still looking for another method and help.
iOS 6 can't be installed on an Apple iPhone 3G, because it lacks in RAM and Processor. As iPhone 3G is as equal to the iPhone 2G (mostly prescribed as Original iPhone).
Yes, you can install a customized iOS Firmware from whited00r.com
But it doesn't allows you to access many of the Original iOS 6 features, but you can enjoy the Apperance of iOS 6.
I Am an Apple iPhone 3GS 16GB (Factory Unlocked) User and very much HAPPY with it.
Try this method from Whited00r: http://www.whited00r.com/ ... you can use this system with locked or unlocked iPhone 3g phones.
This custom firmware allows you to run iOS 6 on an iPhone 3 ... this would also allow you to run programs (like the latest version of Facebook app which requires at least IOS 4.3
The highest iOS normally for an iPhone 3g is v4.2.1
The lack of memory on the 3G is going to keep it from working, and unlike the 3GS, Apple no longer supports the 3G. If you hop in your time machine and go back to 2010, Apple tried to update the 3G with iOS, you will see that it did not go well, and many of the feature of iOS 4.0 were dropped for the 3G. It is possible on a 3GS which is the oldest supported iPhone, but I'm not sure that it is worth doing due to the dated hardware of the 3GS.
