Many of the older version iPhone and iPad users who were not able to get their hands on the new phone were disappointed because of the fact that they were not able to use the new personal assistant Siri which came with the new iPhone 4S.
For such users who have previous version of the iPhone and have jailbroken them can make use of this new tool developed by “chpwn” which will enable iPhone 4 users to run Apple’s personal assistant application, Siri, on their handset. A few days back “chpwn” broke this news on his blog where he mentions of a tool named “Spire” which enables to port Siri on iPhone 4 without any copyright issues.
Excerpts from chpwn:
Spire is my (along with Ryan Petrich) new tool for installing Siri on previously unsupported, but jailbroken, devices. Spire is a small download, but while installing it will download Siri itself (directly from Apple). However, Spire is not a complete solution. Apple still requires authorization to use Siri, so information from an iPhone 4S is still required. To insert this information, Spire allows you to enter your own proxy server address. Spire uses a new method to obtain the files necessary for Siri, so it doesn’t have the copyright issues encountered by previous attempts. Similarly, rather than directing all traffic through a specific proxy server (and the associated privacy issues), Spire allows you to specify your own proxy server.
iPhone users who want to get their hands on this new tool can acquire it on Cydia. It will take about 100MB so hurry!!
To install Siri on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad follow these simple steps:
1. Open Cydia
2. Go go the Search Tab
3. Search for “Spire” and install it!
