    Hey,

    I have an iPhone 3G and I really want to find a way - anyway really - to upgrade to iOS 4.3 so that I can use iCloud when it comes out.

    Is there any way to trick the phone into thinking it's a 3GS or if I hack it or anything?!?

    Any help would be REALLLY appreciated!

    I'm not sure if you understand how upgrading the firmware works.. So basically in a nutshell I'll explain. Apple writes each and every IPSW for specific devices. The last IPSW file written for the 3G was 4.2.1. Besides, iCloud will only be on iOS 5.0 and higher.
