    Default New Cydia Application Allows Siri On Older iDevices - No Proxy Needed


    Two newfangled applications have surfaced in the Cydia store today that permit you to link an iDevice deprived of Siri to an iPhone 4S to use Siri on that older iDevice. The big catch is that you need a jailbroken iPhone 4S, whether it is yours or not. The proxy server method does not necessitate an iPhone 4S because only the owner of the proxy server needs the iPhone 4S keys. In most cases, we buy the use of these servers so that we do not need to go out and buy an iPhone 4S. For that, Modmyi has produced a list of reputable Siri servers that you can use with the popular Siri port dubbed Spire by iOS hacker and developer Grant Paul.

    The two new applications are called AssistantConnect and AssistantConnect4S. As the names advocate, one should be installed on the iPhone 4S and the other one should be installed on the older iDevice that you want Siri on. To use this method of getting Siri on your older, jailbroken iOS 5 device, you will need to have Spire installed on it. For the rest of the ride after installing Spire, you will be using this new application, which is made by an iOS developer by the name of Bilal S. Sayed Ahmad.

    Subsequent to installing AssistantConnect from Cydia on both the iPhone 4S and the older iDevice (free from the BigBoss repository), you should reboot both iDevices. Afterwards, you will find a new icon on your home screen, which is indicated by the screenshot above. This is the application where you will send the iPhone 4S information over to your older iDevice. You can open that application up and you will find the interface, shown below. The top half of the screenshot is what the application will look like on the older iDevice and the bottom half is what you will see on the iPhone 4S.



    The steps for making Siri fully functional on your older iDevice with AssistantConnect and AssistantConnect4S are outlined in five steps by the developer in the Cydia description of AssistantConnect4S:
    1. After installation, open AssistantConnect4S and reboot the iPhone 4S.
    2. After you reboot the iPhone 4S, open AssistantConnect4S again and invoke Siri (hold down the home button for a few seconds) and say something – anything you want to say.
    3. Tap the, “Email Siri Data” button and email it to any of your older iDevices that have AssistantConnect installed on them.
    4. Go over to your older iDevice (which should have not only AssistantConnect installed on it, but also Spire) and open the file that is emailed to you from the iPhone 4S.
    5. Enjoy Siri.

    The developer goes a step further to forewarn us that we should not share our iPhone 4S Siri information with more than five people at once. The developer also promises that the connection is secure.

    Now this is a solution that I am willing to try. Thank you Bilal S. Sayed Ahmad!
    One question I do have is does the app allow the two phones to stay connected for keys?
    Or does it need to be manually sent daily?

    I did all this but my ipod4 complains that I don't have a proxy entered so Siri isn't running..

    and I am guessing this has to be done daily since it says my siri data will expire tomorrow

    AssistantConnect WILL NOT INSTALL in iPad2 with "Spire for iPad"! Please loosen dependency to accommodate the iPad port of Spire.

    I installed spire .. rebooted, followed the 4s instructions, e-mailed it to my ipod4g .. it said it was successful!

    Then I launch siri and it says "Spire not configured"

    Well it simply isn't working for me .. spire wants me to enter a proxy server or siri won't even run .. so I have no clue how the rest of you have gotten this to work.. I tried using SBSettings disable the spire hooks ... siri now runs but it says there is a problem

    I've tried everything from scratch again and still no go

    I just set the proxy server to mirror back to itself. Try using 127.0.0.1
    Working for me on an iPad 2 even though I had to finagle a few things.
