    There have been hacks around that. The problem is copyright and that is why a port hasn't been released.

    A lot of people already know that, but nobody was really able to release their GUI ports, that will get connection eventually, due to copyright. With this, it's not illegal anymore.

    It won't matter. They can still legally grab it from this version of 5.0.1

    I find it highly ironic that a company that has been notorious for running a closed operating system and developer environment has all of a sudden left the iOS file system unprotected. I would advise anyone looking to use any files, especially Siri to tread very carefully. Think of it as someone owning a car and leaving the doors unlocked and the windows down. Just because the owner didn't lock the doors doesn't make it legal to take the car for a joyride. You are still playing with files that are Apple's intellectual property. Whether the files have been protected or not makes no difference at all. On top of that, you are still using Apple's servers to process the Siri commands in an unauthorized manner. The EFF has stated over and over that jailbreaking is legal, however unauthorized use of Apple's intellectual property, both servers and iOS files in a manner that violates the EULA are a totally different ballgame altogether. I doubt the end user of the port would ever have anything to fear, however they may very well be looking for a developer to make an example out of and have made it that much easier from their side by dropping the car keys on the seat.

    Very good point. Sure, it may sound like some conspiracy theory, but it could be very true. Maybe this is all they need to stop jailbreaking altogether.

    I agree on the old voice control. I've wanted to just ask it to call someone while traveling in sketch ball signal spots and it can't look up a number. that's poor design. It shouldn't need data to search my device. I do like siri but would rather have my jb'd 4 back + siri.

    If that's true then why did they make it so hard to JB the 4S and iPad 2?
