    Yup, this is all a publicity stunt. They're like Volkswagen/Bugatti with the Veyron, they just want to show it off and tell everyone: "We did it!". The iPhone jb community is seriously messed up these days. They're working their butts off to port something that Apple themselves might port to other devices once it comes out of BETA, since Siri is still a work in progress. Think about it: if Siri needs the extra power from the hardware of an iPhone 4S (A5 clocked at ~800MHz x 2) how come it doesn't run on an iPad 2 with a more powerful A5 processor? I seriously believe that Apple wants to control the "beta testing" of Siri to just one device, instead of 7 or 8 different devices at the same time... OR, they might have done it to have an excuse to push the 4S into people's faces, since Siri is basically the only reason to upgrade from an iPhone 4 to a 4S... We're dealing with Apple here...

    Obviously you do care or you wouldn't be crying like a ***** about it. YOU'RE not the one that will have to deal with the legal issues if they did tell you about it and Apple went after you. Don't like it, learn how to put it on your 4 yourself. I bet your one of the little kids that ***** and moan because the jailbreak isn't released yet..... grow up and stop acting like a 3 year old.

    Apple would've put it on the 4S to sell the 4S even that it can work on other devices.
    There are heaps of things that work on other devices that Apple just refuse to let it. iMovie on the iPad 1 for example. It works fine but they refuse to let it.
    They like to limit things to the way they want not the way people want so I doubt they will ever let Siri work on anything less that the 4S just because they can. As we've seen Siri does work on the iPhone 4 so why didn't they port it to that too? They don't care about us or older devices. They want to make money not friends.

    And if you want to post videos and not release it then go to the PS3 scene, you'll fit in perfectly.

    Like someone mentioned earlier, I am sure an unknown dev will figure this out and it will be released one way or another. Just gotta be patient.

    my first post so i might be wrong but ya think this stoory was released so an unknown dev could see it's possible so the devs can save themselves from legal action from apple.besides i have seen everywhere this will be released probably after the 4s jb.i'm pretty sure it will be released eventually by someone just like gamecenter on 3gs or above only when it came out,voice control on 4.someone will get it done but i could be wrong.PORNSTAR NOT A TECH GEEK,lol.

    Anybody that thought this would LEGALLY come to us obviously has no real knowledge of how copyright works. Of COURSE this requires piracy to work. We would be using software (and Apple resources) that is not licensed on our devices. The minute they started speaking of the Siri port I knew it might end this way.

    Please explain how this is even in the same ballpark as IE monopolization...

    This reminds me when people said the first generation iPhone couldn't do MMS...then the Dev cracked it and Apple was saying that the first gen IPhone didn't have the processing power to do MMS but in actuality it did and have no problem doing it.

    Has anybody tried this? Seems to be one of those too-good-to-be-true things.

    I look forward to when this gets out in the wild. Having Siri on my 4 and avoiding the battery issue of the 4S would make me happy until the 5 comes out next year and I upgrade.

    I think people may be missing the point. This is not just another jailbreak app being ported to a Jailbroken phone. These guys have to hack SIRI servers which opens them up to legal issues. They are not just adding an app to a phone. Plus I am sure Apple won't respond well since they are not prepared for the extra load on Siri servers. I know from personal experience that when the 4s first came out Siri was extremely over worked and failed from time to time. I am sure adding millions of Jailbroken phones wouldnt help that.

    The legal issues are not because of "hacking". There is no hacking of Siri servers involved. The reason it's illegal is because they're taking files from the iPhone 4S that are copyrighted and redistributing them for other people, when only the 4S is licensed to use them. I highly doubt there would be enough people using the Siri port that would cause trouble for Apple.
