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.
How to Install Siri on iPhone 4
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.
