Change the Color of Siri's Mic with New Jailbreak Tweak
With the A5 jailbreak being released, many of you iPhone 4S users have probably already jailbroken your device after patiently waiting for several months now. With jailbreak tweaks now being accessible on your iPhone 4S, you are probably wondering if there are any 4S specific tweaks out. Luckily for you there is a cool new tweak (which is free) named Siri Mic Colors available.
Siri Mic Colors allows you to do what the name conveys – change the color of your personal assistant’s mic. The default color as you are probably familiar with is purple. With the addition of this tweak, colors will change based on the intensity of your voice. Instead of the familiar purple, the little mic icon will change colors as you talk, which ends up leading to a pretty suave end result.
For those of you who are interested in getting this tweak for your iPhone 4S, it should be noted that it isn’t just available via a search in Cydia. You will need to add the following repo before performing your search:
To do that, open Cydia, hit Manage > Sources > Edit > Add and type in the aforementioned URL. Once you complete this step, you should be able to search and find the tweak (it’s called Siri Mic Colors).
We've been informed that this tweak infringes on certain patents, since we don't condone piracy, the links have been removed.
It should be noted that if the whole rainbow color changing mic isn’t your style, you also have the option to install a single custom color to replace the generic purple skin for Siri. Amongst the single colors that can be chosen are blue, green, red, and yellow versions.
Is this a tweak you iPhone 4S users are interested in trying out? If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think in the comments below!

After installing this package on my iPhone and checking it on WinterBoard. It told me to respring. And after respringing, it gave me iPhone the Spinning Wheel Of Death! Now it won't even be recognized on iTunes or anything!

It gives several errors but still installs. All options are available. I installed it on my iPhone 4S and am currently using Siri Mic Colors without issue. Pretty cool..depending on how loud your voice is, the colors change. I've noted the 4S is more stable and faster with common jailbreak applications. Can't wait to see what is next!

It doesn't cause spinning wheels. It's a simple winterboard theme. I'll check the errors out later today.

Though, it is just a Winterboard theme, don't know how it could be causing errors.
