    This simply isn't possible right now. It doesn't look like it is the focus of any hackers either. So don't expect someone to suddenly offer a solution for this.

    Even if it were to be modded to fit the 2G, the phone wouldn't be able to handle the memory usage as well as cpu... Wouldn't get you hopes too high on this one.

    That isn't true, the 3G and 2G have the same memory and CPU specs. Apple's decision to not support the 2G on 4.x is a marketing decision not a technical decision.

    However we have seen that the iPhone 3G performs badly on iOS 4.x (better as Apple fine-tunes each software release) so maybe it's a good thing that the 2G doesn't have the option to run 4.x

    Default is there a 4.0 firmware for iphone 2g?

    hi,
    I see some posts on a few websites claiming that a custom 4.0 os has been made for iphone 2g which contains most of the features for it.. IS this true? Anyone tried this? Please suggest

    Thanks
    Prabhat

    Such posts are incorrect.

    There exists no iOS 4.x for the 2G.

    What you have seen are iOS 3.1.3 bundled with a series of 3rd party tweaks and hacks that try to "simulate" or "emulate" the main 4.0 features (backgrounding, folders etc)

    These are 3rd party implementations and can often differ very dramatically from the approach that Apple actually took with implementing these features in iOS 4.0. Backgrounder on 3.1.3 for example works very differently to the background tasks and fast user switching that Apple added in 4.0

    Personally, I would prefer to selectively install one or two 3rd specific party packages on my 2G rather than waste the limited memory and cpu trying to make my 2G appear like it runs iOS 4.x

    What are those that you would recommend to have specifically?

    For 2Gs , re applying (via update button) a clean 3.1.2 FW (without jailbreaking) can give us more speed ? (while keeping activation and unlock)
