H1Siri, the latest jailbreak tweak brings full Siri GUI, and successfully connects to Apple’s servers, for older iOS devices. The device claims full Siri functionality on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
We had earlier reported about a successful port of Siri for iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G with server support, but nothing lately hit the public release due to legal issues. Also Siri0us which had bought many features of the Siri to older iDevices was also removed from Cydia. With this users had been left with only a GUI port and nothing which came anywhere close to the real thing.
Siri, the latest voice assistant technology by Apple for iPhone 4S has created a whole new success story for Apple. With Apple keeping the Siri exclusive to iPhone 4S by making Apple Servers not to accept any data from other iDevices, hackers all over the world started to develop a successful port for older iOS devices.
Currently the port brings the Siri GUI and responding to phrases. But anyways this can be considered as a step towards a successful port for complete Siri support for iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
How To Install Siri On iPhone 4 And iPod Touch 4G :
Step 1 : You need to add the repo in Cydia. You can easily do so by going to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> and tap on Add. Now add the http://www.cydia.be, in Cydia.
Step 2 : Once the repo is successfully added just click on Search and type H1Siri.
Step 3 : Install the package.
Step 4 : Now you to enable from the Settings. You can do so by going to Setting -> General -> Siri and toggle it to On.
That’s it, now you have installed the H1Siri on your iDevice. Just hold the Home button and the Siri GUI will appear. If you are having trouble in adding the Repo you can manually install the .deb file from here and install it on your device.
Although it is a very interesting tweak but many users have reported bugs in this app that it works intermittently with complete unresponsiveness sometimes. However this is the easiest way to get Siri functionality on your iDevice for now other than getting yourself a brand new iPhone 4S.
As all the data from the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G are forwarded to an unknown server which then transmits to Apple Servers for successful processing of speech-to-be-converted-to-text voice files. As the proxy servers used by the develoepers is now being bombarded by requests and hence the functioanlity will not fully commence until the load decreases.
Hacker Chronic has also warned all users to stay away from this tweak as user’s personal data is sent to an unknown server which can later be used for evil purposes. Also the legality is also an issue as the H1Siri is it is using modified copyrighted files that aren’t supposed to be distributed.
