One of the most touted features of iPhone 4S is the amazing new AI based ‘Siri’. Siri is a iPhone 4S-only feature.
Although I personally feel this was just a marketing technique by Apple to get the current owners to buy the iPhone 4S since the iPhone 4 is pretty powerful enough to handle Siri and anyways all the Siri voice processing is done server side.
Just a day after its launch, Siri has already been hacked into the iPhone 4.
A famous hacker by the name, Steve Troughton has ported over Siri from iPhone 4S to iPhone 4.
This hack is currently unavailable but will be launched soon. Bookmark this page and check back later for Instructions on getting this on your iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS or iPad 2.
Note that you will need your device to be Jailbroken.
There’s been an update to getting Siri on your iPhone and we’re now getting closer to actually getting it to work.
This method will only allow you to get the feel of Siri on your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS. This will still not work since Apple servers only accept requests for Siri commands from an iPhone 4S. All requests from iPhone 4 or 3GS are simply ignored.
But that too is a matter of time until the hackers figure out a way to make it work.

Steve Troughton, the original hacker who was working on porting Siri to iPhone 4/iPod Touch has finally managed to find a way to fool Apple Servers into thinking that the requests are being sent from an iPhone 4S.
He has posted a video showing the hack and Siri working successfully on the iPhone 4. He says the hack will require files from the iPhone 4S and these files are not authorized by Apple to publicly distribute.
Nonetheless, the hack is successful now and its only a matter of days before we get the final instructions on getting this to work.
