How to Install Siri on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch [Jailbroken]

I’m sure many of you must’ve been eagerly waiting for this day, however, I might have to disappoint you here. This is a working Siri on iPhone 4 port, but it’s not very legal or bug free. Siri is currently only available for the iPhone 4S and Apple has no plans on making it available for other iOS devices. We all love how Siri interacts just like a human, and how there’s no other assistant out there that’s as good. That’s why we all want to have it on your older iOS devices such as the iPhone 4, iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS and iPad.

It has been proved and showcased earlier that Siri does work, without any problems, on the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch, but the method was claimed to be illegal and thus the developer did not want to distribute it. But now, there’s a new tweak on Cydia, going by the package name H1Siri, that claims to bring the complete functionality of Siri on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch. There’s a fairly simple method on installing it, but there have been reports of the servers being down, video camera not working, certain apps crashing and other bugs. So, it’s entirely on you, if you want to try this out.

We have already warned you about the dangers of going about this port, but go ahead and follow the steps below if you’re really brave and have spare iPhone 4 and iPod Touch lying around. You need to be running on iOS 5 and your device must be jailbroken.

  • Fire up Cydia, go to Manage>Sources>Edit and Add one of the following sources : http://www.cydia.be or http://www.iphone3gsystem.fr/cydia.
  • Wait for the source to load, then look for the package H1Siri
  • Install and Reboot your device. If you can’t find Siri in Settings>General, then you need to reboot your device again.
You now have Siri on iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G. It may not work for all because this Siri port doesn’t communicate with the Apple servers, instead the developers have assigned it proxy servers. This also means that your personal data like contacts, emails, photos and other data are sent through a private and unknown server. We’d recommend not to try this if you’ve some really confidential data on your iOS device, plus there’s a chance that Siri might eat your iPhone. Here’s a video of the tweak in work:

After watching the video, I’m sure you’d be tempted to try it out. In case you do, let us know how it went. You might not even get access to the servers thanks to the overload and all your attempts top run Siri on iPhone 4 or your iPod Touch 4G may just remain a dream. However, it is important that you give it a try at least once. You can uninstall the package later on if you want to.
