How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1.x is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1.x to 7.0.x.

In itunes it says it's compatible with iOS 4.2 and above, nothing about idevice models. 3G can attain 4.2.1

Ah yeah, I see it now, sort of hid in the drop down, bit surprised it can't run on an ipt3g either, probably run like s#*t on a 3G iphone anyway.

If I install frash will it get sky go to work? Or are there any cydia tweaks to get that app to work or change to 3GS?

no, its not an issue of software, its hardware. iphone 3g has ~58 mb useable ram at most while 3gs is ~100-150mb useable ram. installing frash will do absolutely nothing except possible lag up your iphone more.

The only way to turn your 3G into a 3GS is to take all parts out of the shell, and replace them with all 3GS parts. The app most likely requires OpenGLES 3.0, which is only compatible with apple's ARM7 devices.
