Get Siri On iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 & iPod touch Using H1Siri [Cydia Tweak]

Everyone with an iOS 5 device other than the iPhone 4S seems to have just one wish these days, and that is to get Siri their unsupported devices. People with iPhone 4S have been quick to make everyone envious of the vocal personal assistant. A continuous stream of news has been coming out from the dev community regarding the porting of Siri to older devices. It was largely believed that Siri might never make its way to iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and newer iPod touch models because of copyright issues. Moreover, Siri needs access to Apple’s servers to work. So it comes as a huge surprise that someone has finally been able to overcome these difficulties. That’s right; Siri can now be used on devices other than iPhone 4S, provided that they are jailbroken.

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide at your own risk. AddictiveTips will not be liable if you suffer any issues after following the procedure.

The rather alarming-looking disclaimer above is there for one reason alone, and that is privacy. With the latest uproar caused by Carrier IQ, many smartphone owners have taken a new (and fierce) stance over their device’s privacy. If you use this Cydia tweak to port Siri to your iDevice, it will become more susceptible to sniffing, and someone with the right kind of knowledge and skills might break into your personal data, so proceed at your own risk.

The tweak is named H1Siri, but don’t start searching the Cydia store just yet. You won’t find it in any of the default repositories. You will have to add one or more of the sources listed below to get H1Siri. Go to the Manage section of Cydia, and in the Sources menu, add the following repos.

  • http://cydia.myrepospace.com/H1Siri
  • http://www.cydia.iphonetweak.fr
  • http://iphone3gsystem.fr/cydia
  • http://www.cydia.be

These might seem like too many repos for downloading a single package, but due to the huge demand of the tweak, the servers have been swarmed by traffic. You might have to try a couple or more of the above before you’re able to download it to your phone. Also, keep in mind that the package is 109Mb in size, so it will take some time to download.  Some users have complained about being unable to find the tweak in the store even after adding all four repos. If you are faced with the same issue, just wait for a little while, try searching again and you just might get lucky.

Update: According to some reports the tweak, apart from being a privacy risk, can also brick your device. So it’s better if you don’t use it at all for the time being.

    How serious is the security risk we’re talking about here on a scale of 1 to 10?

    • Richardjin1998

      This is actually illegal, as it contains illegal codes.

      • Mikeeve

        Please discontinue use of the screen name Richarjin1998, as it contains illegal codes.

    Hi, i have installed Siri in my iPod Touch 4G, but i have this problem “Sorry, I0m having trouble connecting to the network.”  and  “Sorry, I’m not able to connect right now” …. any suggestions??

    • Mastershake

      thats because its a H1Siri a chinese hacker group developed it and ran it on a test on their servers and it leaked. So everythign you do when you do connect to the servers is being documented i would stay away from this

    • Psu29fun

      Yes just wait and check back on the net. Give it a week and keep checking.

  • mark

    dude it stopped working 2 days ago it only worked for a few hours be4 the servers went down or they got blocked by apple 

  • http://soyestudiambre.com SoyEstudiambre

    Just googled H1Siri and all news about it are claiming to stay away from it as it is potentially harmfull and it even has brokn some phones…

  • Raz0r

    ok to be honest, if you are just some average guy who still goes to school and have no valuable information that could be lost, then the scale would be 3

  • Mastershake

    iPhone jailbreakers should probably stay away from the latest Siri port, dubbed H1Siri, which brings Apple’s digital assistant to the iPhone 4. The new hack comes from a group of Chinese hackers calling themselves the “CD-Dev Team.” According to the team’s account on Weibo (a Chinese microblogging service similar to Twitter), the hackers had originally wanted to just run a small test, but the code was leaked. Now their servers can’t keep up with the demand.

  • Itsyaboy

    One thing who gives a fuck if the codes are illegal or not You will not get Into trouble for installing it people hear illegal and get scared grow a fucking pair it’s like when apple says don’t jailbreak it’s bad and people listen or when the government says 9/11 was done by terrorist and building 7 went down kuz of a fire stupid sheep listen lol ok thT last one was off topic but I just hate sheep mentality
