Siri has been ported to older iOS devices, including iPhone 4 and 3GS by well known hacker chpwn and stroughtonsmith.
Since Siri was launched along with iPhone 4S as an exclusive feature to Apple’s very latest smartphone, it has scarcely been away from the headlines. Developers have been plugging away to see what the software can really do when unleashed, and if the progress thus far is anything to go by, Siri will be singing songs whilst flipping eggs for your breakfast in no time!
Jokes aside, though, the latest inroads only further increase the suspicion that the fruit company kept Siri as an iPhone 4S-only feature in order to increase sales. It was said that Apple’s first dual-core smartphone was the only device capable of handling the new, exciting technology; but the work of chpwn and friends has certainly made that claim appear as a simple, sensible marketing ploy.
Here is a step by step guide to port Siri on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPad on iOS 5 or iOS 5.0.1:
  1. Jailbreak your iPhone 4 or 3GS
  2. Install iPhone Explorer or any other software to transfer files to your iPhone or iPad
  3. Open Cydia and install iFile
  4. Download this file:
  5. Extract archive downloaded above.
  6. Copy the folder AssistantServices.framework to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ on your iDevice
  7. Copy all the files inside Springboard folder to /System/Library/CoreServices/
  8. Launch iFile on your iDevice and navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/
  9.  Open file N81AP.plist for iPod touch 4G and N9x for iPhone 4 (where x may be 0, 1, 2).
  10. Add
Reboot your iDevice and Enjoy Siri on your iPhone or iPad. Remember that it is only GUI and not fully functional SIRI port.
