If 4.0 works only with 3rd gen ipods and 3gs iphones. does my 8 gb 3rd gen count as a 3g????
This is actually a very good question!
no, it doesnt have the speed boost to handle all the features
4.0 will work with 2g ipod touches, 3g iphones, but will not have full features, i.e. multitasking.
my theory to them shutting out even the 2g ipod touch (which is more powerful than the 3G iphone) is that the upcoming new iphone is a lot more powerful, if the OS is designed for the new device, maybe the 3GS and 3g ipod touches are just about powerful enough.
i don't know, pure speculation.
they are being sneaky im sure there will be a jailbreak feature in cydia to make the 2g run multi-task. why? cause 8gb 3g is the same as 2g.
No since its actually a 2nd gen.
8GB is not a third gen. 32GB and 64GB is.
but the 8 gb is STILL a 3g. it has the different ECID chip thats all but its still a 3g im anxious to hear what apple has to say about that
They state on their site that it won't work so for now, that's that. I'm sure with jailbreak, we'll be able to install and enable these features as they claim it uses less power and RAM than the jailbreak method (Backgrounder) and Backgrounder can run VERY well on an original iPhone and 1st Generation iPod Touch.
