The famous developer Chpwn has released a new Cydia tweak named “Spire”, the public Siri port for iOS devices older than iPhone 4S. Spire enables Siri Voice assistant functionality to work on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3G, iPod touch 4G, and first generation iPad running iOS 5.x.
Spire is free and available in Cydia and the device should be already jailbroken on iOS 5.x. Chpwn has been working along with Ryan Petrich and Steven Troughton-Smith, to port Siri on devices not supported by Apple. Spire uses a new method to fetch the files necessary for Siri to eliminate the copyright issues faced in all earlier methods including H1Siri.
Spire still requires authorization information from an iPhone 4S to run on your older gen iOS device and you should have a proxy server setup. Chpwn have put up a list of ideas on how you might get access to a proxy.
You can simply use westbaer’s SiriProxy fork proxy to connect to Apple servers. Alternately, you can use this method to set up Siri proxy server. If you have an iPhone 4S you can use the authentication keys from your iphone or also can use authentication tokens from your friend’s iPhone 4S. Please note that this key changes every 24 hours and Apple might blacklist an authentication key and a iPhone 4S in question, so be careful.Here are the steps to install and use Spire on your device.
Step 2: Now, open Cydia and search for “Spire”. Install the tweak.
Step 3: After installation, tether boot your iPhone 4.
Step 4: Now, go to the Settings menu of your iDevice to activate the function of SIRI.
For porting Siri on iPhone 4, you need a proxy server and an authentication key extracted from an iPhone 4S.
Step 5: Open setting to configure proxy server. Enter the Proxy host you have set-up. Proxy server should be chosen carefully, as it requires some private data is sent on the Apple servers.
Not to miss that Spire requires a reboot and you may need to Boot Tether your device after installing the tweak. Big-Boss’ Semi-Tether patch doesn’t support Spire. For more updates connect to us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
