    Specs:
    13" MacBook Pro, iPod Nano 5th Gen. Yellow 16GB, iPhone 3G 16GB
    iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3G
    I recently saw a video on youtube, as well as a few articles in which someone had managed to get their iPhone 3G to multitask as well as pretty much everything else offered with iOS 4 and 4.1. Wondering of anyone knows how to do this?

    I recently updated my iPhone 3G, and it took so long, I had to leave it over night. To my dismay, the only change when I picked it up in the morning was that the dock was a little shinier.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't need the multitasking. In fact I'd be happy if I could just get some folders...

    I got the 4.0 upgrade for my iphone 3G like normal through iTunes, but just like CrimonRequiem it ended up being too laggy. My advise don't do it... or if your like me and read about laggy iphones but just want to do it anyway then good luck, do it, and then later on you'll more than likely downgrade again

    I have 4.1 on my phone and have no problems with speed at all, but what I'm saying is none of the new features are working. I know muti-tasking and backgrounds aren't available on the 3G, but folders should be, and I don't even have those. As far as I can tell, nothing changed when I switched to 4.1.

    Also, like I mentioned I saw a video in which someone DID have multi-tasking and orientation lock and everything on a 3G, anyone know how to do this?

    I'm sorry, I posted this one in the wrong spot. I tried to delete it, but I'm not sure how.

    All those featured worked fine for me and I didn't have to do anything else except upgrade i'm afraid

    I have 4.1 on my iPhone 3G, speed was far less of an issue than on 4.0

    Folders also work, did you try dragging an icon over another one? (that's how you create a folder)

    Only way to get multitasking or home screen wallpaper is to jailbreak
