We have seen lots of developers trying their hearts out to bring the Siri port on the iPhone 4 and other older iDevices (other than iPhone4S which officially has the feature out of the box),many of them tried different tricks to fool the apple servers for getting their devices recognized as iPhone 4S while using the feature.
Last week we also reported about siriOus tool which was pulled hours after the release over the Cydia store,since the developer wanted to try out different voice recognition technology for his app.Now as reported earlier today by iClarified yet another app has surfaced over Cydia claiming to be working on older iDevices named H1 Siri.
Though it’s not yet clear about how the port works for the older iDevices but it’s belied that like other hacks its also using a proxy to service the requests from the users, so expect somewhat buggy experience and request failures because of excessive traffic load on the server.
Checkout the H1Siri video in action:
To install it follow these steps:
1. Open Cydia > Go to Sources > Add.
2. Add any one of the following:
3. Let it reload the repository. After thats done, go to Search and search for “H1Siri“. (Its 109Mb so will probably take a while to download and install)
Note: Due to high load on servers you might not get it to work at the first go. Keep trying again and it will work eventually. Keep in mind that this is a beta build.
Note 2: Installing this hack on your iPhone or iPod Touch is considered illegal now. So do it solely on your own risk.
