Yesterday, we told you some excellent news that Siri feature is not made only for A5 devices. Today, we’ve got more and more good news! Siri has been ported successfully to the iPhone 4. The jailbreak hackers didn’t made the port but someone else..
Steven Troughton-Smith, an iOS developer, has been working with 9to5mac to make the port of Siri from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 4. He was able to get the beginning steps of a full port rolling after installing the iPhone 4S Siri and Springboard files onto an iPhone 4.
Below is a video showing the iPhone 4 with Siri working good:
Siri on the iPhone 4 can recognize the same commands as the iPhone 4S. The problem is:
You may notice Siri and the iPhone 4 acting very sluggish in the above video. The issue here is not Siri, but is that a special GPU driver for iPhone 4 is needed; and it is obviously not included in the iPhone 4S binary cache – where the Siri files are located.
However, the developer posted a new video showing Siri improved on the iPhone 4:
Currently, the site is working hard with the developer to get Siri working perfect on the iPhone 4. Also a couple of hackers are still trying to the do port. You may want to stay tuned!
UPDATE: For those (in comments) who’re not believing that the above videos show Siri working on the iPhone 4, we’ve got more photos and a video proofing that Siri is ported on Apple’s iPhone 4.
The video was an early-port of Siri, that’s why it’s slow. You might want to see the second video to check the high performance. (Thanks Matt for sending this in!)If you found this post useful, hopefully hit the +1 (recommend) button ⇉
