    This may sound really stupid, but I needed to ask.

    Is there a way to play games requiring later firmware on 3.1.3 (Similar to psp)?

    I wanted to play Minecrafted and Devil May Cry 4.

    Yep, I'm not sure where it is but somewhere in the file system there is a file that you can edit to change you device FW. Theres also an app on Cydia to do it for you

    The file that alidsl mentioned is at /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist. [​IMG] You can try to change that to report 4.2.1, but keep in mind that frameworks vital for the app may be missing.
