I have an 8gb iPod Touch from several years ago, Model PC086LL runnung iOS 4.2.1 that is old enough that it has no camera. I gave it to my son to play games and watch Netflix.

He has been able to play a number of games such as "Angry Birds" (pretty much all of them) "Pipe Roll 2", and "Temple Run", BUT, other games such as "Where's My Water?" Subway Surfers and "Temple Run 'Brave' Edition", require a higher level of iOS.

These new games are no more complex than the slightly less new games he is already playing, but they all require an upgrade. I understand that sometimes it's truly a hardware bottleneck, but in this case, I think it's just an artificial limitation designed to get you to buy a new device.

Is there a way to take the aforementioned device up to 4.3.5. or even 5.X via jailbreaking?

Thanks!
