How To Install Siri On Your iPhone 4 And iPod Touch 4 (Working Tutorial)
When it comes to iPhone 4S, Siri is one the best feature that everyone knows. Since Apple made Siri exclusive only for the iPhone 4S, hackers worked hard to port Siri to the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4 and finally they did it. Guys from Intech bb has successfully ported Siri to the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch 4.
Before starting the process, you should have jailbroken your iPhone 4 or the iPod Touch 4 using this tutorial.
How to Get fully ported Siri on iPhone 4 & iPod Touch 4G:
Step 1: After jailbreaking your device successfully, tap and launch Cydia.
Step 2: Navigate to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add and add the following repository:
Once the repository has been added click “Return to Cydia”.
Step 3: Now either tap on the repository “cydia.be” or click on search and look for “H1Siri“, once found just tap and confirm the installation.
Step 4: After the successful installation you will need to reboot your device.
Step 6: Now exit the Settings.app and press and hold the home button and you should see a popup of the actual Siri voice assistant. Just tap and speak whatever you like.
Note: You may not be able to connect to Apple Server and it will give you an error saying “Sorry, I’m having trouble connecting to the network”. You can fix this error by restarting your device couple of times (it worked in two reboots for us).
This is how fully working Siri looks like on iPhone 4 (GSM/CDMA) or iPod Touch 4G (refer to the screenshot below). We have tried this port on both iPhone 4 (GSM) & iPod Touch 4G and can confirm that the port actually works very smooth. You will definitely feel like you’re using an iPhone 4S but no an iPhone 4. Try it and let us know what do you think about successful Siri port on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G?
[Update X1] Our reader Raisand Vallipuram has just tipped us, once you will port Siri on your iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G, your camera recording will stop working. This port will also make most of the camera-apps stop functioning. We can confirm that it’s true. So if you don’t want to lose your camera-app for Siri, please avoid this port. We are also looking for a fix so everyone can enjoy this newly release port. Stay tuned!
[Update X2] Some of our reader are complaining about the repository that it is not working. If you can’t even find H1Siri using cydia.be, try an alternate repository which is http://cydia.myrepospace.com/H1Siri/
[Update X3] After linking a lot of third-party repositories and a lot of complains from our readers, we have decided to add the actual H1Siri.deb file, which you can download from here (password: www.applehi.com). Please note that H1Siri.deb is about 110MB in size. To install this .deb file you would need to SSH this file and install it via iFile. If some one doesn’t know how to SSH the .deb file please follow our guide below.
You can SSH in to your device using WinSCP for Windows and Cyberduck for Mac:
- Hostname: The IP address of your iDevice. Setting –> WiFi –> <Your Network Name>
- User name: root
- Password: alpine
- Protocol: SCP
- Server: The IP address of your iDevice. Settings –> WiFi –> <Your Network Name>
- Username: root
- Password: alpine
- Protocol: SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)
Once your logged in. Navigate to /var/mobile and drag/copy the H1Siri.deb file. Now open iFile from your mobile device and navigate to the same directory which is /var/mobile. Now find the H1Siri.deb file and tap to install. Once again tap installer to install the .deb file.
[Update X4] Since our readers was complaining about camera issue which we have addressed in Update X1, we have found a fix. To fix your camera-recording issues after installing H1Siri, please download this file and save it on your Desktop. Next step is to SSH your device, if you are using Windows you can use WinSCP and if you’re using Mac OS X you can use Cyberduck, however, we have used iPhone Explorer for the demonstration.
Once you’re logged in navigate to Root/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.dyld, you should now see a file named “dyld_shared_cache_armv7“. Either remove it or replace it with the file you have just downloaded and saved on your Desktop. Now do a reboot and try shooting HD video recording.
Disclaimer: Do it at your own risk.
Update: I tested and found Siri was finding a hard time to connect to the Apple servers. I think thats due to the excessive amount of traffic send using SiriProxy.
