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...27" iMac: Quad-Core 2.93GHz i7 & 16GB RAM
iPhone 4S: 64GB iOS 5.1.1 Jailbroken
iPad 2: 32GB iOS 5.1.1 Jailbroken
iPod Touch 3rd Gen iOS 5.1.1 Jailbroken
iPod Classic (thick) 160GB

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.

I really don't understand all the anger over this. You want siri go by a freakin 4s or learn to port it over to what ever device you have.

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.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

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.

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.

Nice to know Apple are screwing us iPhone 4 users over -_-.....and next year i4S will miss a awesome feature.
