Update: Due to missing repos (WordJelly), this method no longer works.

So after the jailbreak, one of the coolest things that you can do is install Siri on your iPhone (4, 3GS). We’ve been playing around with a lot of Siri ports but unfortunately, it took us this long to actually figure out a genuine, working solution that is awesome.

I don’t know if you’ve heard about Wordjelly yet but it’s a cool Siri alternative for your iPhone. Couple that with some really cool GUI and you’ve got a clincher. Okay, without any more delay, let’s get straight to the point. This tutorial will show you how you can install Siri on your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS running iOS 6.x. It’s pretty easy.

Ok, lets start with Installing Siri On iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS (iOS 6.x Compatible)

Install Siri on iPhone 4 and 3GS

You’ll need:

  • iPhone 4/3GS (jailbroken, of course)
  • Connected to Wifi
  • Running iOS 6.x (we tested on iOS 6.1)

1. Get the Siri Interface
First, we need to get a decent interface that looks and works very much like the original Siri from Apple. To do this, we add a repo in Cydia.

Step 1: Open Cydia

Step 2: Go to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add

Step 3: Add this source:

Add bassamkassem Repo to CydiaStep 4: Add Source

Step 5: Once you’ve added the source, open the source by tapping on the BassamKassem repo.

Step 6: Look for a tweak called “Ac!d Siri for iOS 6.1” (or whichever iOS version you are using)

Install Siri for iOS 6.1

Step 7: Install it. The Siri package is about 90MB and will take a while to install.

Step 8: After installation, you will be asked to reboot your device

2. Install Wordjelly for Siriport Servers
After you’ve rebooted your iPhone, you’ll need to add one more repo. This is the main source for making Siri work.

Step 1: Open Cydia

Step 2: Go to Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add

Step 3: Add this repo:

Add Wordjelly SIRI Port

Step 4: Tap on Add Source

Step 5: Now, open this repo source and look for a tweak called “iOS 6 WordJelly Control Panel

Install iOS 6 WordJelly Control PanelStep 6: Install this and reboot the device again.

(Alternatively, you can add both the repos first and then install the tweaks. But remember to reboot every time you install the tweak.)


3. Start Using Siri!
Now that you’ve installed both the necessary packages, you’ll have to enable Siri.

Step 1: Go to Settings -> General -> Siri and enable it.

Enable Siri

Step 2: Then, go to Settings and scroll down to find “Ac!d Settings

Step 3: Open that and enable Siri here.

Step 4: In the Proxy Host, you should fine this:

Ac!d Settings

That’s it. Long-press Home button to fire up Siri and start using it!!

  1. Doesn’t work. I’ve downladed first source and install it,and after i reboot my Iphone 4 GSM.And appear just Apple image and that’s all ! Nothing

    • Hey, can you tell us what packages you installed? Like, you need to get the correct version for your iPhone4.. Lemme know what packages you installed so we can figure out why this problem crops up.

      Also, if you aren’t able to boot up, try powering down and then when you power on, press the volume up. This will start your iPhone without Cydia packages running on it. You can then remove the problematic packages and then reboot your iPhone normally.

  2. My iPhone Says That This Tweaks Are Crash My SpringBoard.
    When device is rebooted, it start run in safe mode.
    When I delete this tweaks my device starts run normal.
    How I can bypass this problem ?

  3. Doesn´t work on my iPhone 3gs, keeps on crashing.
    If I install [ac!d] siri-iOS6.1 for 3gs it seems to work better, but when I install wordjelly it removes the siri aplication, I can´t find a way to install both. Please can somebody help me??

  4. Doesn´t work on my iphone 3gs, The aplication that does work is [ac!d]siri-iOS 6.1 for 3gs, but after rebooting, I can´t (or don´t know how to) install wordjelly without removing [ac!d]SIRI-iOS 6.1 for 3gs. Can somebody help me please???

  5. siri works for me, but dictation in messages crashes my phone everytime. any way to fix this ? really wanted this feature for a while now. Thanks in advance :D

  6. Hi! This worked but once I install location fix Siri disappears!! So how can I get location to work? Also is there anyway to get the real Siri with the real responses not the ones the developers make. I know thats asking a lot, but I am still optimistic.

    • There should be a package called [Ac!D]iPad-iOS with the appropriate
      firmware version. Download that and then follow the steps after it. Siri
      should now work on the iPad 2 too.

  7. Just tried exactly what you said (I’m not a noob). Everything works – she takes requests but doesn’t DO anything with them. Any ideas? iphone 4, 6.1.3 tethered.

  8. iPhone 3GS – Ac!D seemed to install fine. can’t seem to find Word Jelly control settings. Or the Ac!d setting option to enable SIRI. Everytime I run Siri , get errors. Removed these repo/tweeks, installed again. Same issue, please help! Thx

    • We tried it just now and everything seems to be working fine.

      Did you add the repos correctly? Since all the tweak files are from independent repos
      make sure you’ve added them correctly (no errors should crop up in Cydia’s terminal).

      “iOS 6 Wordjelly Control” is still available in the Wordjelly repo.

  9. Siri won’t respond to anything I say. She just says sorry I can’t take any requests right now. What gives? iphone4 6.1.3 semi-untethered
    also cannot find ac!d settings in settings.

    • Siri won’t work without [Ac!D] Settings configured correctly as
      mentioned in the article. I think it could be a repo issue. Try deleting
      the repo and then re-adding it to Cydia. Then follow the steps from
      installing Ac!D settings.

      • I think you have to download ac!d control panel separately in Bassam Kassem’s repo..
        testing now

      • Update: After uninstalling both packages, reinstall -reboot X2 and some finagling was able to get Siri somewhat responding, had to download apps calling fix from bassam cause she wouldn’t launch my applications, she won’t answer half my questions but has given me weather, directions, and things like “Call Mom” won’t launch music by name in ipod either. It’s nifty but with that duration it takes to load on the A4 processor its almost inconvenient opposed to manually tasking. Oh well.

  10. I don’t have this Ac!d thingy in my Settings !!! What’s wrong?? and Siri keeps saying It can’t help me right now, please try again a little while :| help me guys

    • Looks like the repo is down and that’s why there is no tweak shown with
      that name. We’re looking for alternatives. In the meanwhile, try to
      remove and re-add the repo just in case it’s a server issue at their
      end.

    • Hello.
      I found the solution : Ac!d Control Panel is a separated package now.
      You can find it in the Bassam Kassem source.
      I seems working…

  11. Hello.
    I installed the packages but i am french and Siri seems waiting me to speak english.
    I selected french in the dictation language so Siri speaks english with french accent o_O
    Do you have a solution ?

  12. I have Siri and the WordJelly settings and all that, and I downloaded the Control Panel thing so she no longer says she can’t take my requests, but now she doesn’t respond at all.

  13. I’ve installed Siri from Ac!d .. Couldn’t add the wordjelly repo.It keeps giving me some error.Installed wordjelly from another repository but I can’t find the Ac!d Settings anywhere & Siri won’t work as well.
    What to do now?

  14. Hi Jignesh, I tried your instruction but failed at the Step 4. Cydia failed to verify the cydia.bassamkaseem.com….any other options you would recommended? thanks
