Spire Siri Installation Guide
It has been the big concern to bring Siri on older iPhone but it is so hard to achieve this milestone. However seem like now we can find a legal way to install Siri on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch 4G and 3G. This is the tool developed by Chpwn. This tweak is called Spire. With this article, you will be able to find source for Spire, instruction and more.
Requirement for installation Siri on on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1 and iPod Touch 4G and 3G with Spire:
- Your iOS devices must run on iOS 5.0+.
- It must be jailbroken (follow our guide to untethered jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 here)
Now you are ready to install Siri.
How to install Siri with Spire:
You iDevices must connect to internet so that you can find Spire on Cydia with BigBoss repo. To search on Cydia, you must first run Cydia and tab on “Search” on the bottom left corner. Enter Spire as keyword in the search box.
If you can’t find this tweak, you must add this source: “http://smolk.myrepospace.com/”
Note: Spire is about 100 MB so make sure that you connection is stable so you won’t have to restart again.
Find proxy server for Spire Siri
Even if you manage to get Siri on your idevices with Spire in this way there are still something else that you need to do to make it fully functions. Siri need proxy server to respond to your command. Here are what on Spire blog about server for Siri:
There’s any number of ways for you to get a proxy that will help you connect Siri to Apple. Here’s a few of my ideas:
- westbaer’s SiriProxy fork
- Own an iPhone 4S too: Maybe you already own an iPhone 4S, and just want Siri on another device of yours. This is simple; you can just use the above proxy yourself.
- Find a friend: Maybe your friend has an iPhone 4S and will let you use their authentication tokens (maybe in exchange for some cool SiriProxy plugins). Then, you can share the authentication. Or, maybe you gave your relative your old iPhone when you got your iPhone 4S: now you can share your token and give them Siri.
- Pay up: It’s very likely that soon we will see for-pay services online to rent you some space on a Siri proxy, attached to one of their iPhone 4S devices. I haven’t seen anything like this yet, but I’ll keep my eye out, and I would encourage anyone who is interested to set something like this up.
- And now for something completely different: As I suggested earlier, you might be able to replace Siri entirely. A simple method might be to use Google Chrome’s speech “API” hooked up to some code to decode the Siri requests and parse Google’s result. Or, someone could hook it up to some logic backends like many of the clones available on Android: the possibilities are endless.
How to Set Up Proxy Server for Spire Siri
Now I assume that you already have installed Spire for Cydia so you can follow our steps below to set up proxy server to make Siri work:
- Go to “Setting” > scroll down and you will find “Spire” > Tab on it so it will lead you to where you can enter the proxy URL.
Note: Currently there is no information about proxy for you and they need more time. I will update this post once the proxy is available.
