i4Siri (Spire): Install Siri on Older iPhone 4,3GS, iPad, iPod touch with Free Proxy Server
Apple iPhone 4S was released in October last year and no doubt Siri voice recognition software was the most stunning feature of this smartphone which has been appreciated all around the world due to its utility as you can do a lot of tasks on your iPhone 4S by just pushing out voice commands. Moreover, the folks have created a number of ways to hack Siri for some other purposes by making it the slave of custom commands instead of the commands officially incorporated by Apple in Siri.
Siri is an exclusive feature of iPhone 4S, since officially Apple has introduced it on iPhone 4S only and seems still reluctant to make it available on other iPhone models like iPhone 4, iPhone 3/3GS. But the hackers and iPhone developers have dig out many techniques to port Siri on other iOS devices even on Android powered smartphones.
Most of people believe that porting Siri is, perhaps, highly complicated matter since it requires the power of A5 processor (on iPhone 4S) to work. But some initial successful efforts of porting Siri to other iOS and android devices show that this isn’t a valid possibility and can easily be nullified. For example, Spire, the best and most popular jailbreak tweak to have an access to use Siri on older devices.
But Spire users also face many difficulties as this tweak only offers the Siri GUI, and entirely relies on a functioning proxy server and data from a registered iPhone 4S to operate, and sometimes you have to wait for a long time for execution of your voice commands through Siri, due to Apple declined access provided by certain 4S devices as it is generating huge numbers of requests.
To dig out an appropriate solution of such sorts of issues, i4Siri team was dedicatedly working on discovering an absolute and reliable tweak. For your goodness, now the i4Siri has succeeded to offer the best solution making the i4Siri servers available to the public, without requiring registered iPhone 4S.
They have made their servers free for general public after doing data analysis, testing and verifying that the servers are now quite stable. However, API access limitations are still valid but the i4Siri team is doing its best to sort out the solution of this issue too.
If you have older generation iPhones in your custody, and are desirous to check Siri efficiencies, you can try i4Siri server by following a few simple steps provided here for your guidance.
To try Siri on your iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, and iPod touch you will, of course, have to jailbreak your device to install this tweak. For jailbreaking the latest iOS 5.1 (tethered), follow our tutorial posted here using Redsn0w. For jailbreaking iPhone 4S and iPad 2, you can follow our guide posted here to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 using Absinthe on Windows or Mac. The folks with an iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, and iPod touches can use Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze to untether jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1.
Go to Cydia and install the ‘Spire‘ tweak.
Then, open up the device Settings application and head to ‘General >> Siri‘ and set the toggle ‘On‘.
Go back to the root of the Settings menu and select ‘Spire‘.
In the Spire settings menu, insert the proxy URL field with ‘https://i4sirifree.mooo.com/’.
Now, open Mobile Safari and go to ‘http://i4siri.com/installcertificate.html‘
Install the certificate. Activate Siri and make a request. In fact, to make the whole process workable, the installation of Spire and an iOS 5 capable device is required. Access to i4Siri server wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for certain open source projects like siriServer by Eichhoernchen and SiriProxy by Plamoni.
Don’t forget to give your responses through comments about your interaction to Siri and how did you find this cute personal assistant in its obeying skills with only voice commands.
