Looking to experience Siri magic on your non-iPhone 4S device? Well your wait is finally over! Developers working on i4Siri project have finally released free Siri proxy servers to public to experience Siri on their iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2, iPad 1G, iPod touch 4G and iPod Touch 3G (with headphones). This port is 100% LEGAL!
Users can now install Siri Assistant without having iPhone 4S in hand and without paying monthly recurring fee for paid Siri proxy servers. Since i4Siri servers require Spire, your iOS device must be jailbroken on either iOS 5.1 or iOS 5.0.1. Devices jailbroken on iOS 5.1 (with redsn0w) will not going to work as Spire tweak is not compatible with iOS 5.1.
Like GRWH siriServer, i4Siri convert the Siri speech packets to flac codecs to send to Google API service for processing. After processing google sends what you said in plain text, the server relays the information back to Siri on your jailbroken iOS device. No hassle of being connected to Apple servers. That said, know that this is a beta version and there could be some connectivity issues. With that said, head on to read up on the process.
Step 1: To connect to their Siri server your iOS device must be running on jailbroken iOS 5 and above. If you haven’t, then you can use Redsn0w to jailbreak iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad and iPod touch 4G. iPad 2 users can use Absinthe tool. Follow the next steps below:
