You'll have to ask among those who are specific to your phone. I know that many Android devices can be upgraded to newer versions of Android. For example, I have a Motorola Triumph, which officially only supports Android 2.2 (Froyo), but I am running 2.3 (Gingerbread) on it. Some of the developers on this site are working on 4.0.x (Ice Cream Sandwich) and 4.1.x (Jelly Bean) ROMs for the Triumph, but as far as I can tell, 2.3 is the latest that exists in a completely functional form for the Triumph. (4.0.x appears to be close, with the only major failing being that the camera doesn't work.)

Look under the device-specific sections on this forum for a section specific to your device, and look for an “All Things Root” section thereunder. That's where you will find discussion of upgrading the firmware on your device.

You might try contacting Instagram themselves, and see if they will make older versions of their client application available.

I suspect that Instagram is making changes to their service and to the application in such a way, however, that a very much older than current version of the application will likely work poorly, if at all.
