  • Siri Has Been Ported to iPhone 3GS

    Developers are hard at work with porting Siri to older Apple devices.

    Siri is Apple's new-founded voice dictation software that currently runs on only the iPhone 4S. Many are anticipating the porting to older devices. Developers warn that doing this is piracy and some, including chpwn (Grant Paul) are are somewhat against releasing it because of that. That doesn't mean that it absolutely will not be released, though. Currently, the GUI is the only thing that people can get on their devices. There are numerous guides online that point you through the instructions, but the GUI offers no functionality, only looks. Developers have successfully managed to get Siri to work on older iDevices but the process to doing so is complicated and redundant. So instead, they are working on a hack to make it work easier for the end user. The release for Siri to older devices has no (if any) ETA and probably won't be released for a long time, if ever. Chances are that if they do choose to release it, they will wait until the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 is on its way.

    Earlier today, Ryan Petrich tweeted that Siri has been successfully ported to the iPhone 3GS. The developers behind the port are Grant Paul and Steve Troughton-Smith. The hackers managed to successfully port Siri to an iPhone 4, an iPod touch 4G, and now the iPhone 3GS. Ryan Petrich attached a video to his tweet of Siri with working functionality from Youtube. It can be viewed below:



    So that being said, we are ever so closer to possibly seeing Siri on our older iDevices. It's been proven that Siri can run on older hardware and that it's only been released on the iPhone 4S for Apple's marketing purposes. I wonder how Apple will react if Siri is successfully ported to older devices. Will they release an update to their servers, or iOS software that blocks it? Or will they sue for copyright infringement? Who knows. Only time will tell.

    Are you excited for the Siri port? Share in the comments below!

      How come this site will all but put a nail in your coffin if you mention software piracy. But to hack Apple's servers and pirate their Siri software and you publish story after story. Seems like a double standard. I've been on this site since before jail breaking was actually legal. I can remember jail breaking the first iphone and it taking all afternoon. I'm not against proving Apple's apparent greed for not releasing Siri to the phones it will work on, I'm just wondering how you reporting on it is any different then piracy. And in my opinion a whole lot easier to be caught if you ever release the hack for it.

      I also saw that on cnet

      Calm down. This is news, not a how-to guide on pirating software.

      It really baffles me how selfish and ignorant some of these idiots are that leave negative comments about this subject. " ooh, if i cant have it now for free, then i don`t want to know ! ". These guys are working hard to make these things possible so that you can have them for free !. if you have nothing positive to add or care to show any gratitude, then don`t comment on it at all !

      Sweet. I use Siri quite a bit, and it'd be really great to be able to put it on my wife's JB iPhone 4.

      I agree....... Who cares about Siri on the 3GS or the 4 for that matter. If you want siri upgrade, if you can't afford it be happy with what you got. I would like a Ferrari.... Stop doing this $hite, when they release a public jailbreak for the 4 or the 4s post it, until then, how about we keep meeting the mmi staff (yawn).

      The thing that blows is this same guy talked about and showed it running on the iPhone 4. Then he said u need the so called iPhone 4s information that he will not release. So what's the point it u just have it for the looks and can't use it.

      Yeah they could get sued because they are idiots who reveal their true identity! If they were smart they would just release it with no credits to anyone, then how the hell is Crapple gonna know???

      To release it on a website requires some sort of Domain registration and Apple could court order the host/domain registrar.
      Apple would shut it down faster then Wall St in '08.



      I believe that this project is being worked on by Developers to show just how good they are in modding and understanding such a closed system.

      Seriously though, it's a project that is consuming key people's time in the J/B process.

      The entire community would rather the 4S iOS jailbreak be released then a chauvinistic display of Dev's ability on Apple's beloved Siri.
      From Chpwn's post, it's apparent that the 4S has been jailbroken (in order to get Siri Files), why can't they release the legal jailbreak software?
