I second this poor souls sentiments (NewdestinyX) but with some additional comments; forgive me therefore if I continue ...
This app crashes constantly when enabled. And by crashing I mean goes into Safe Mode and is a failure of Epic proportions ... all I have to do is invoke Siri via voice command (choose the method, of which there are a few, all with the same result) ask her (it) a question and .... queue Apple logo ... TADDA.... Safe Mode .... <applause><gun shot><screaming>
I don't have time to try and remove this tweak and disable that app and uninstall this sub-whatever-the-hell ... I am a USER [email protected]! Seriously, I get it ... not all things can be known blah blah blah yeah ok fine. But when it happens, and let me tell ya, it is happening ... YOU need to provide US with a way to remove your code and UNDO any (and all) changes made (ESPECIALLY TO THE iOS you Jack wagons) ... instead of leaving the idi0ts (like me) who installed your half-baked app thinking "Hey, if it doesn't work or has a conflict I'll just remove it by golly." Only to find that we are SCREWED because YOU made CHANGES to iOS and didn't ROLL THEM BACK ON UNINSTALL. OMG!!!! **I think I may die from an aneurysm just typing this ... too bad typed words have no physical impact.
I want to get your G-A-R-B-A-G-E off of my beautiful sweet innocent and somewhat naive iPhone and (here's the gotcha) I want it to WORK like it did BEFORE I put your <insert expletive> software on my device. To be clear, I would really really REALLY appreciate your assistance with having Siri Work again, not answer me with British Man-servant voice then a few seconds later (WHILE I AM ASKING HER A QUESTION) pipe in with the normal Siri voice ...
Thankfully I had the foresight to purchase one of those indestructible Otter cases, because the floor would likely be littered with little bits of iPhone if not for that wonderful case. And all because of this app ..... tsk tsk
So, if you wouldn't mind terribly, because I would hate to put you out ... could you see yourself clear to maybe providing us USER types with a removal procedure that will restore Siri to a functional state when your code is expunged from our devices? Pretty please with sugar on top!
Thanks ... much love

I wish I had never purchased or installed this. Great idea. Poor execution. No update has fixed the amount of fail and frustration that comes from installing this app. If you want to destroy Siri install this. You will no longer be able to send SMS or set reminders or do much of anything with the virtual assistant. Crashes crashes crashes with no add ons enabled. Sounds like ill have to do a full restore to get Siri back. Because I'm lazy and still hopefull that an update will make this work I'm gonna hold out for a bit longer. But I am very frustrated here. If I said it worked 50% of the time that would be a overstatement. Let this be a lesson to all the dev's out there. US JAILBREAKERS TRUST YOU to release good products. Betray that trust especially for paid apps that end up requiring I fully erase my device will result in a lot of pissed off users.

As for the keywords, this issue started in 3.3 and was corrected in version 4.0. If you updated you should be able to get "orange" (we just successfully tested it for you, evidentially pronounced "AO R AH N JH"). You should be able to stream audio via bluetooth as this is one of the neat features we advertise with the app. The double beep sound is actually present in iOS file system and should play when switching the vibrate sound off by default. We unintentionally turned this default sound on in our patching process seeking to force all system sounds to play. Why the sound doesn't normally play is unknown to us, as that is its normal purpose there.
Version 3.3 is not compatible for iOS 6.0 and crashes the Springboard upon launch (apple boot logo, mobile substrate safe mode). If you have purchased HFC you should have been notified when version 4.0 came out and had you upgrade. It also should have notified you at version 3.3 that it wasn't compatible with iOS 6 and that you install at your own risk.
Uninstalling the tweak in Cydia will completely remove the app from your device. No special manual removal is necessary. Please ensure that the theme is set back to "Default" before doing so or the sound for starting Siri will remain at whatever you have set (we literally replace that sound file in the file system).
As for crashing, if you are attempting to use HFC 3.3 on iOS 6, we have made multiple attempts to state this was the purpose of releasing version 4.0 to BigBoss. Version 3.3 had been developed and released for iOS 5.1.1. We would hope that the cause of some disgruntled users for not seeing the update on their devices is because they installed the app from a non-legitimate repository (for free).
Uninstalling the app through Cydia should remove HFC from your device without any restore needed.
Thanks goes out to all of our fans that use and enjoy Hands-Free Control! We hope to get keyword recognition to the point where it will be the easiest and most desirable way to use your iPhone or iPad!
