Finally good news from i4Siri camp! Developers’ have successfully ported complete SIRI on 8GB iPod Touch 4G. The video demo uses the i4SiriAuth Tweak that can be downloaded from i4Siri Repo. Just install the i4SiriAuth on your iPod touch 4G along with iPhone 4S auth keys for Siri to work.
The i4Siri project team is now targeting to implement the google voice API which doesn’t require authentication (authed connection) with Apple Servers. For google voice integration, the team recently purchased a Quad Core i7 Ubuntu server packed with 12GB DDR3 RAM and Two HD’s in RAID-0. The team added:
Expert dev Mark DiFranco (@shark17) has joined the team and is hard at work on the server side to make the connection with the google voice API and implement it into the Siri Proxy. He is working on how to convert the siri speech packets to flac to send to Google api service. Once the connection is made, the team will then program plugins for the server to eliminate the need of iPhone 4S. @acenario, @mrajstech and @leftyfl1p will be working on required SIRI plugins development.
This hack, which involves Google voice API integration, will not make SIRI’s voice sound different nor will it mean lack in SIRI assistant functions, added the i4Siri project team.
The developer further added to support ‘Spire’ tweak and promised to release the proxy host server real soon but no ETA whatsoever. As a quick refresher, Spire tweak prompts for a proxy server address which is quite difficult to create one. If you have a basic understanding of Linux, you may follow the complete guide here or alternatively, try private proxy host address that we mentioned earlier. Make sure you follow @JAlLBREAKS to get notified for free SIRI proxy for spire and for i4Siri update.
