    I've found a source on cydia for it.. downloaded the app and it crashes on startup. I'm specifically looking for facetime on iphone 2g. We would have to use the back camera of course.

    Has anyone found a facetime for older devices that works?

    Well someone in the iPod Touch section said they were able to put iPhone firmware on their iPod Touch 2G so maybe with some modifications you could put iPhone 4 firmware on an older iPhone and only use the back camera for FaceTime? Idk, he still hasn't posted any proof that he has put it on and my idea will probably never work.

    I doubt it, seeing as Apple specifically said only iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 facetime..

    Although I do see it becoming possible on iPhone 2G,3G,3GS ETC, its just a matter of time before some devo comes along and figures it out

    But for now, the person you speak of has no proof..

    There's iMovicha from cydia. It allows video calls from iPhone to Iphone. Iphone to other phones. And Iphone to PC. You can use both cameras on the iPhone 4, but on older gens it automatically uses the back
