Siri Sucessfully Ported to iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G


iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith has successfully ported a fully working version of Siri over to the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.

Steven Troughton-Smith has been working on this since the first day he got his hands on an iPhone 4S. He posted his progress on his Twitter feed (@stroughtonsmith), and now with the help of chpwn (best known for his work in the jailbreak community), they have made port a success.

Steven had this to say, on Twitter:

“I’m really impressed with how fast and usable it is; it’s in no way slower than an iPhone 4S”.

Steven has also said that there will be a release, but it will not come before an iPhone 4S jailbreak is released, which is required to get the proper data from one device to the other. Steven says, after all his work, that the entire hack comes down to one simple line of code, plus a bunch of file system changes.

We look forward to the release, and I’m sure will tell how to do this yourself, once it has been made public.

    “Siri, will you play with my iPhone 4?”

    “Sure thing baby!” ~Siri

    Does it mean you nees to own a 4s to enable siri on your 4?
    Which is required to get the proper data
    From one device to another?

  • They didn’t create anything innovative for 4S and they had to lock Siri for old versions?

  • Well, it would be illegal for them to distribut the files, themselves (piracy), so I think so. I’m just assuming, at this point. We’ll see when the official release comes out.

    Makes me feel not so great about spending all that money upgrading from the 4 to the 4S, I should have waited for the 5

  • Don

    It will be accessible via an iOS 5 Jailbreak.

    well ya I mean it’s a no brainer. The iphone 4s was aimed at people who are new to smarphones or are upgrading from an iphone 3g or 3gs. If you already have an iPhone4 there NO need to upgrade to the 4s that’s just plain stupid and a waste of money.
