If you are rocking an iPhone older than the iPhone 4S and you want Siri, but don’t want to upgrade your device just yet, you will like this. A hacker had been able to take the newly unencrypted Siri files and create an installer that is apparently fairly easy to use.
Once you have jailbroken your iOS device running 5.0 version of the operating system you can then install Siri on your device legally and have it work. Before Apple left the files unencrypted trying to port Siri to another device was a copyright violation.
The hack does still require access to the Apple servers for Siri to work. Since that access is limited to the iPhone 4S only, the hack uses a proxy with information from an iPhone 4S to work. I would bet Apple would be closing that access down as soon as it can pinpoint the details needed.Filed Under: Apple, Apple iPhone
