Well some interesting developments are happening all over the place in the context of the Siri port for iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G these days. Earlier we reported on the progress that developers have made on complete replicating the Siri functionality on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G including the connecting and authenticating to the Apple servers for the voice commands. Although developers didn’t give any release date for this release.
Now a developer named euwars has brought us a method to install the Siri on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G in a step-by-step guide. Unfortunately, we should let you know that for now only the GUI is working and voice commands will not work because this install will not allow to authenticate the iOS 5 devices (apart from iPhone 4S) to the Apple servers. It seems from the users input that this install procedure also works for the iPhone 3GS!
Note: Rooting, Jailbreaking or customizing your device can be risky, and you may end-up bricking your device! Follow the instructions posted here at your own responsibility as Inspired Geek will not be responsible for any damage to your device.
Here is the procedure as explained by the developer himself. Its pretty easy to follow I guess.
1. download the files, extract them to ur desktop
2. copy the folder of AssistantServices.framework to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/
3. copy all of the files inside SpringBoard folder to the /system/library/coreservice/springboard.app
4. in the springboard.app find N90AP.plist(for iphone) , N81AP.plist(for ipod touch)
open it with ifile as a text file and add this ‘’<key>assistant</key><true/>’’ after ‘’<key>720p</key><true/>’’
i will tell u how u can use the other files soon plz do not ask about files inside folder
and respring your device hold the home button and see the siri UI ;)
After using this procedure you should be able to access at least the Siri GUI by long pressing the Home button. As for the download mentioned in the procedure please visit the source link. Keep in mind that this procedure has been reported only for the educational purposes and we cannot recommend this to be installed on normal being used iOS 5 devices. In other words this procedure is only for the adventurous users while others should wait for a more functional Siri port for the iOS 5 with all the features enabled and bugs removed.
Also it should be noted that a jailbreak iOS 5 is required of course to follow this procedure properly. If your device is not jailbroken on latest iOS 5 then please follow any one of these guides to preserve the baseband while doing so for both Windows and Mac:
I would personally prefer the first guide based on the recently released Redsn0w version to create a custom firmware.
