Enable / Install Siri on iPhone 4 - What's the Progress So Far ?The hacker have significant moves on enabling siri on iPhone 4. The hackers have successfully installed Siri on iPod Touch 4G but it isn't fully functioning as you see in the above screenshot.
We successfully enabled Siri, but it seems out it is compiled to only work on the 4[s], and thus, cannot be used(yet).We highly expect that the hackers will get more stable results when Apple release the final version of iOS 5 by October 12.
What iH8sn0w said about this task :
It’s definitely not just a plist value that you have to change in order to get Siri. Thus far, it has required a lot of searching and digging. After sending all the known information to John, I’m beginning to find that it is much harder than expected. We’re using an iPod touch 4G now but our aim is to port it to all devices that Apple won’t support. At this point, we’re unsure of whether Siri requires certain hardware components or not. At this point, we can’t say but are still trying. After buying the iPhone 4S myself, I will be looking to see if there are any new files that are not available on the current iOS 5 version. This might be our stopping point.[via 1,2]
