Many developers and hackers are working hard on to port Siri on older devices like iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G easily. i4Siri has made great progress and have successfully ported Siri on iPod touch 4G. Much importantly, the team is working on to connect to Google servers instead of Apple’s servers to process Siri commands, to bypass the need to iPhone 4S authentication keys.
The i4Siri team has released a demo which uses i4SiriAuth tweak to work Siri on iPod touch 4G. You just need to install the i4SiriAuth on your iPod touch 4G from the i4Siri Repo and will require the iPhone 4S auth keys to connect to Apple’s server to get Siri Working. Check the demo video here.
Besides this, the team has already purchased an server with the following specs and working on to implement the google voice API to process speech packets from siri on your idevice. Google servers will then process those packets and send a response back to the device. This way eliminates the Apple’s servers authentication process and will not require regeneration of 4S keys every 24 hours. It is also legal and will require just the server address for connection.
i4Siri Purchased Server Specs:
- Ubuntu Server
- Quad Core i7
- 12GB DDR3 RAM
- Two HD’s in RAID-0
Expert dev Mark DiFranco (@shark17) has been working on the server side to make connection with the google voice api and he is currently working on implementing it into the Siri Proxy while .@acenario, @mrajstech and @leftyfl1p are working on to develop the required SIRI plugins to eliminate the iPhone 4S auth keys.
The team has also acknowledged that their server should support Spire tweak developed by Chpwn. However, they have not given any ETA for the release of the server details but will be soon be finishing their project.
As of now, other Siri tweaks including Spire and i4SiriAuth requires the iPhone 4S auth keys and some server to connect to Apple servers, that is quite cumbersome task. For more details and release updates follow us on @JAILBREAKWIRE, Facebook Fan Pageand Google+.
