[Update: 16-Feb-2013] This method doesn’t work anymore. Here is the latest tutorial on how to install Siri on iPhone 4/3GS (iOS 6.1 Compatible)

Siri has been one of the most fantastic things on iPhones and iPads. Technically, Apple lets only iPhone 4S and iPad 3rd-gen to have functional Siri, but as with everything else in life, hackers find ways to get the feature on other devices as well.

While Siriport worked fine with iOS 5 and later till iOS 5.1.1, on came iOS 6 and things became normal again. I mean, there wasn’t any Siri port for older devices running iOS 6 till now.

Siri on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS Running iOS 6

Here’s how to install Siri on your iPhone 4, 3GS or iPod Touch 4G running iOS 6.x:

Things You Will Need:

Let’s get started:

Step 1: Backup everything on your iPhone or iPod Touch 4G because with jailbreaking, it’s always better to have a backup of all the things so you can restore to it if something goes wrong.

Step 2: Now, open Cydia.

Step 3: Navigate to Manage -> Sources

Step 4: Tap on “Edit” on the top-left

Step 5: Now tap on “Add” on the top-right and enter this information:

Step 6: Tap “Add Source” to add the repo to the Cydia sources

Step 7: After the addition is done, look for “Siriport (Original) iOS 6” (do a search on Cydia)

Step 8: Install this and let Cydia reboot the device. (do a tethered reboot through Redsn0w)

Step 9: Now, after the phone powers up, go to Settings

Step 10: Find Siriport.Ru Original and tap it.

Step 11: Next, tap on Install Certificate

Step 12: Once done, long-press Home to open Siri and start talking.

Results with this method have varied from instant successes to complete failures. You might need to keep trying to get Siri to respond, or in some cases reboot the device a few times in order to get Siri working.

Let us know how it went for you.

    I tried this on a iPhone 4 on 6.1 and the device would not boot up. i tried entering safe mode tby holding up the volume up button on startup and still would not work. Strangley the phone did connect to itunes as normal and iFunBox. I just saved the contacts via FunBox and am going to restore and re-Jailbreak. I do not reccomend using this method

    • You’re right and that’s why we posted the update :) Hope you try that out because the updated thing worked like a charm for us here :)
