Old iPhone 3g for my son.

My son loves playing Extreme Road Trip 2 on my iPhone 4s along with lots of other apps. So a friend of mine gave me his old iphone 3g that I figured I could give to my son for Christmas. The problem is that apple no longer supports the 3g so I'm stuck at iOS 4.2 and most apps require at least 4.3.

Am I SOL or is there a way with whited00r or some type of Jailbreak to get new apps to work on this iPhone 3G??

P.S. your answer determines whether my son laughs or cries on Christmas morning.

Sell the 3G on eBay or CL and buy an iPod Touch.

it depends, if the friend "gave" it to him for free. the friend may not be happy he turned around and sold it

That's what I was trying to do....only with a free iphone from a friend. I also have a friend with an iphone 3GS which I think is still supported...but that phone will probably be unsupported next year....right?
