Seems like developers over WhiteD00r are in action again. This time they will be releasing iOS 5 for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G devices. The project is called RedD00r. These devices are by default not supported by iOS 5.
How it works:
Let us clear you how this thing works. They will not install the actual iOS 5 firmware on iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G. Instead they will create a custom firmware of the supported firmware of these devices. This custom firmware will include all the features of iOS 5 as well. For example, iOS 4 firmware will be taken and it will be customized to add features of iOS 5 like iMessage, iCloud etc.
