Siri On iPhone 4
Siri has been successfully ported to A4 devices. iPhone 4 above.
A BIG THANKS TO CHRISTIAN HEUSINGER, THE DEVELOPER OF IREALSMS, HE WAS A PRIMARY PERSON IN THE PORTING OF SIRI.
Turn your attention to the new YouTube video (the third one down). Siri is no longer laggy and fully supports the iPhone 4's GPU. At this point in time, Siri is almost fully functional although devs need to find a way to trick Apple's servers into allowing the iPhone 4 to use Siri. Currently, Siri requires a call home to Apple's servers to verify the device. The iPhone 4S passes the test, however the iPhone 4 will be recognized as an incompatible device. Devs are working hard to find a way to make Siri fully functional on an iPhone 4. Stay tuned!
Just a little while ago, iH8sn0w tweeted on Twitter that Siri does not require an A5 processor to work. That being said, it will work on any of the A4 devices that you already own prior to buying the iPhone 4S.
iH8sn0w also retweeted the original tweet containing the screenshot in the header of this article – which adds legitimacy to the whole ideal.
Also, below are some videos of Siri on an iPhone 4. You can tell it's an iPhone 4 by the look of the antenna. It is a GSM iPhone 4.
EDIT: The developers behind this awesome port have managed to accelerate the speed of Siri on the iPhone 4:
Siri is a voice function for the iPhone 4S that allows the user to ask questions of all sorts and be answered back with intelligent responses. Siri does not handle well with accents and is not a perfect system. It's currently in beta for the iPhone 4S – Apple promised to roll out more and more support with upcoming iPhone updates including more languages and functions. It was recent news that iH8sn0w and his buddy Gojohnnyboi were working on porting Siri to older A4 devices. iPhone hackers warned that it would be impossible to do this without piracy. So if you're brave and don't care too much about the boundaries of the law (not that I support this sort of behavior, because that would be barbaric!), then perhaps you will be able to try out Siri on your jailbroken A4 device very soon. For obvious reasons I will not be providing links or guides for doing this. But following iH8sn0w on Twitter may guide in you in the right direction.
The current version of Siri on the iPhone 4 is still immature, but is capable of recognizing spoken commands. It probably won't be released until the kinks are worked out so give it some time. Currently, devs are working on getting Siri on the iPhone 4 to correctly authenticate with Apple's servers, which only allow for Siri to work on the iPhone 4S. This will take time. Be patient. At this point in time, the Siri project is private and has not been released onto Cydia nor is there any way to download it, but be assured that it will likely be out soon, so stay tuned!
Please make donations to these wonderful people if you have some spare change! They work hard to make sure we get the best out of our devices.

Sweet!!! Now I can talk to my iPhone 4 in public and everyone will think I'm cool cause I have an iPhone 4s!!
Then I will explain to them that it's actually a jailbroken iPhone 4 and I'll look even cooler! "What's a jailbreak?"

Sweet! That is the ONLY reason I considered upgrading to the iPhone 4S! Now I will just wait for the bugs to be worked out and for Siri to be ported to the iPhone 4. iH8sn0w and Gojohnnyboi Pwnd Siri!

What am I missing? I thought I already had this on my iPhone 4 like 6 months ago, and it sucked.

In the second vid that thing runs slooooow. I also noticed nobody asked it anything.
It may be running, but does it work as designed on the slower A4?

this is truly beautiful the one minor thing that might've encouraged me to early upgrade from ip4 to ip4s, before ip5 is now gone

Hmmm, the iPhone in that second video looks incredibly slow and laggy, I'm wondering if that is due to Siri or other apps that may be running. I'm excited to have this on an iP4, but I will wait to see how the performance is before I make judgment.

This is big so give credit to all those that participated in making this happen!

I thought I saw a tweet by MN the other day saying Siri could not be ported without piracy implcations. Meaning the code would need a key work around to it done legally.[CENTER][SIGPIC][/SIGPIC][/CENTER]

It may work but it looks sluggish. Is it available from Apple for the iPad 2? It should be since it's faster than the 4S.

@Cer0, I remember the same tweet. Wonder how Apple will react? Nonetheless, great work to those involved in making it happen. Siri + untethered JB= awesomeness! Be patient, good things come to those who wait.
