Update iPhone 3G to iOS 6.0.1?

Apple site says the latest software update for 3G phones are 4.2, is this true? Anyway I can update to 6.0.1 to install Instagram?

They stopped updating to 3g a long time ago

Well Apple's own website wouldn't lie…

The iPhone 3G only go up to 4.2.1. No way to get 6.0.1 on it. You'd have to get an iPhone 3GS at least to get that version.

That hardware is too outdated, dont update it. Only 4 or later.

Unlock it, then try
