When Apple launched the iPhone 4S in October of 2011, one of the most talked about and probably its headline feature was the inclusion of the Siri intelligent assistant software which attempted to make life easier by being able to accomplish tasks given to it through a simple voice command. When invoked by the user, Siri is ready and able to take spoken orders which can range from setting meetings up in the calendar, checking the location of friends and family or even pulling up a weather forecast for most locations in the world.Siri can do unimaginable things and it does it bloddy fricken well!
So,When Apple did release Siri,the whole world wanted it.But,sadly only the ‘New iPhone 4S’ got it! Developers started working on ports immediately.But,It was really hard to get it working without violating any Apple Inc. Copyright.
Soon enough,A group of guys namely
@MrAjsTech @leftyfl1p and @ericlewis came up with this wonderful idea of getting Siri to work using Google servers and ‘NO 4S KEYS’.This made the fact to violating Apple servers totally redundant.
And Just day before yesterday,i4siri was officially released.
Here’s a Tutorial on how you can easily install it in just minutes –
Note: You will obviously need to jailbreak your device to install this tweak (Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 with Redsn0w or Absinthe depending on what device you have.This currently does not work with iOS 5.1 as Spire isn’t compatible yet)
Step 1: Open up Cydia and add a source (http://i4siri.com/aspecialplace) and Install ‘i4Siri’ (For iPhone/iPod Touch) or ‘i4Siri iPad Install’ (For iPads). This’ll take time as it downloads an additional 100mb while installing a building caches,So be patient.
Step 2: After installation, open up the device Settings application and head to ‘General >> Siri‘ and make sure the toggle is set to ‘On‘.
Step 3: Go to Settings –>> General —>> And Set ‘Siri’ to ‘On’.
Step 4 : Then,Head back to the root of the Settings menu and select ‘Spire‘.
Step 5: In the Spire settings menu, populate the proxy URL field with‘https://i4sirifree.mooo.com/’.
Step 6: Open up Mobile Safari and head to ‘http://i4siri.com/installcertificate.html‘
Step 7: Install the certificate. Activate Siri and make a request.
Step 8: Et Voila! Keep the Home button pressed for a few seconds and Siri should pop up.
