SiriPort: Get Siri On Older iPhone Without iPhone 4S Certificates [Cydia]

The quest for the perfect Siri port to older iOS devices continues, and after Spire, AssistantConnect, H1Siri and a host of other attempts, SiriPort has now become the latest addition to the list of methods which you can use to get Siri on iDevices other than iPhone 4S. Most Siri ports for older iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices require complicated setting up of proxy servers, or provision of a certificate from an actual iPhone 4S. With SiriPort, however, there are no such needs. You just need to download the package from Cydia and after a few simple steps you are good to go. So, are you a fan of the witty Siri? This is just the guide you have been looking for.

SiriPort Cydia repo SiriPort Cert SiriPort

Here are the steps you need to follow in order to get SiriPort working, but before you do anything, make sure that you uninstall any other non-functioning packages related to Siri, like Spire. Once you have cleansed your iDevice of such packages, you are good to go.

Instructions:

  1. Go to the Cydia store, and in the Manage tab, go to Sources.
  2. Add the following new source URL
    repo.siriport.ru
  3. After the repository has finished loading the packages, search for a tweak titled SiriPort.
  4. Make sure that you are on a good Wi-Fi connection, and install the searched tweak. It is more than 250MB in size, so be prepared for a long wait while everything is downloaded and installed to your iPhone.
  5. Your device will reboot when the package has been installed successfully.
  6. Now from your web browser go to the following link, and download the file found there (titled 1.cert)
    siriport.ru/1.crt
  7. Now email the file you have just downloaded to yourself, and open the attachment from the stock Mail app.
  8. You will be taken to an installation page, hit the Install button, followed by Done.
  9. Reboot your device.
  10. When your device comes back on, long-press the Home button to launch Siri, and then say “Hi Siri”.

After that, Siri will be activated and you can enjoy a lovely chat with the talking assistant. In case it fails to activate, reboot the device, and then try step 10 once again. You have to keep repeating until Siri responds to your Hi. SiriPort hasn’t worked for every user who has tried it, but still, it’s worth a shot. Do let us know in the comments section if using SiriPort finally gave you Siri on your older iDevice.

  1. Not working it says “You have been redirected through this website from a suspicious source. We prevented it and you are going to be redirected to our safe web site.”

  2. Prob too late to comment but I installed siri on iphone 4 on 7.1.2 I try to install Cert but iphone keeps redirecting to a “safe site” any ideas

  3. When I go to setting to turn on siri, when i switch to “on”, as soon as I leave the settings it goes back to off.

  4. cant access my mails on my phone now but it seems siri is on my phone.. though she doest answer me back.. any ideas?
    seems that i cannot use the internet and open the apps

  5. I am on 5.1.1 3gs jailbroken and untethered with use of rocky raccoon. When I install siriport and reboot my safari and mail crash and I cannot install cert….I see someone commented that you should reboot with redsnow, but will it fix this and is it safe to boot tethered when I’m already untethered? Please respond in depth in your reply about the process

  6. My Siri works fine. But it doesn’t have all the features. If I ask, where is the closest McDonald’s it won’t work. If I ask “where’s” the closest McDonald’s it works. “where is” and where’s” it’s weird. Also, If I say, “set alarm” it’s doesn’t work. Says it doesn’t understand. If I ask general questions, it doesn’t work. How do I fix this so it has all the results!

  7. Siri is installed on my iphone 4 and it works perfectly, but Safari, mail, camera is not working. What can I do to fix the problem?

  8. i installed it the certificate too it shows in cydia that its installed but theres no siri option in settings sso i cant enable it but im sure that it installed properly

  9. Whenever I try to install the certificate, it asks for a password. Can anybody help me with that? Thanks

  10. there’s a virus once u install Siriport u can’t uninstall coz if u uninstalled ur device will be into Safe Mode

  11. @83d82a1cc7c2092af54cea25b6fe81a2:disqus  it really works here is howstep 1 install bla bla bla bla bla bla
    step 2 install ifile if no already
    step 3 go to [var/mobile/library/preference]  and delete com.apple.assistant.plist
    step 3 re-boot 
    step 4 enjoy siri 😀
    P.S 14siri can also do this  USE 5.1 VERISON!!!!

  12.  installed on ipod touch 4g now says password is incorrect getting the “ipod is disabled” message now

  13. I got it to work smoothly on my iPod Touch 4G 5.0.1 jb’d. Siri responds to everything I ask, I just had to reboot after installing the certificate!

  14. it does work. it is such a pain of butt to get the working certificate for my first device. you do by turning it off and back on again and again. talking about persistence…. however, after get that working certificate, you can copy and paste it to all your device to skip step 10. it works on my iPod touch 4g and iPhone 4.

  15. I followed all of these steps and it didn’t work. I then went in through Ifile and deleted the com.apple.assistant.plist. This is after you install the certificate, then I tried siri and it worked. No reboot or respring after the deletion of the file. Hope this helps some of you.

  16. It appears as if all you need to do to get Siri working again is delete the com.apple.assistant.plist file found in the var/mobile/Library/Preferences/ directory using iFile or a file-system editor program.

    • Just! Reboot and keep trying I promise you she works persistent is the key work keep saying hi, and try again and hi! But don’t give up. I wil post a video on YouTube under the name WWWSOCIALNETMEDIA just to show you how I do it from scratch. DON’T GIVE UP. Sometimes she responds to within 15 minutes other up to 4hrs and other 1 day
      But also try my last post info! The bitch works

    • Keep trying as in keep saying “hi Siri” to get it to work or uninstall siriport and try the steps all over again. I’ve deleted the com file through I file and still get Siri telling me there’s something wrong she can’t help me right now.

    • So I have siri running on my iphone 4 (not activated, however) and I cannot find that file in ifile at all. I can all my other apps in there, but the siri port. 

  17. When I got siriport it reply to everything I say sorry I can’t talk with u right now and I keep on trying

  18. It is a bunch of crap! Yes I had it working in my iPhone 4 after 10 or so re-installs and endless hours of screwing around. It worked for 10 days now nothing plus is f%$#ed up a lot of my apps which now wont open (Facebook, Google translate etc.) so now I have to restore my iPhone and re-break it etc. Do you really think apple would let a FREE certificate slip through? NO. They just want you to try sire for a few days then run out and buy a new iPhone 4S or purchase siri. It only works in the USA anyways for maps, places, stores etc now anyways. So if you are in England and but it or a new iPhone 4S tuff luck !!!!!!

  19. this worked for me.  heres what i did.
    1. updated firmware from 4.3.3. to 5.0.1 (nothing custom, just standard apple update)
    2. jailbroke and installed cydia via redsnow
    3. added source for siriport > reboot
    4. added certificate > reboot
    5. in settings, enabled siri
    6. held home button and said “hi siri”

    it didnt work the first dozen or so tries.  i rebooted after every attempt and tried again.  about the 12 try, it worked.  hope that helps.

  20. I’m having trouble with the certification download link…every time I go to open it Safari opens a new window and then I’m sent back to my homescreen.  Is this just because there are so many users trying to access it, or is this a sign that I need to reinstall Siriport again?

  21. It actually works… But when u restore or re-install, it doesn’t work… It fails to activate… That is the problem in my iPod Touch 4g… I installed it… Enjoyed it for a month… Had to restore my device and jailbreaked it again… Installed Siriport… Waited for a day… Still Siri did not get activated…So when u install it, u shouldn’t restore your device…

  22. I think Sara is a great substitute for Siri, though she’s more direct and somewhat obnoxious, I think she’s worth to check out=) Installing Siri again now, let’s see if she’s working for me!

    • The link is given in point 6 of instructions. Copy and paste it in your browser. If it doesn’t work for you the first time, keep trying as the source servers might be down due to too much load.
