Siri is ported to iPhone 4 via H1Siri

OK, so we had been hearing this for days now. Some people from China called CD-Team had finally managed or should I say dare to port the Siri over to a device other than iPhone 4S. Actually there are some other people who had done it before but since it's illegal to do so they didn't distribute it to the mass. Anyway, this CD-Team managed to port Siri over using a proxy server which they created and work on their own. Mix feedback was heard online throughout these few days as some people managed to get it to work while some didn't. Some messed up their phone and put it in a infinite loop of respring mode. Some had their phone restore several times before managed to get it to work. For those who managed to port it, were managed to operate Siri but at  time they will encounter server error as their server are crowded with people trying to connect to it. The developer had informed that they will shift their server to another location for better connectivity. Well, we will just need to wait and see now. 

So here's the step-by-step method on doing the porting but take note that I will not be held liable for any lawsuit that you may face in the future and also damages to your devices. Take note that  this port only works with iPhone 4 with iOS 5 and above. 

  1. It is recommended that you have a clean restore of your iPhone before you proceed. 
  2. Your iPhone 4 must be jailbroken for this tweak to work obviously. 
  3. Got to Cydia --> Managed --> Source --> Edit  and Add this repo (http://www.cydia.be or http://www.iphone3gsystem.fr/cydia)
  4. After adding that repo, search for H1Siri and install it. 
  5. Reboot your iPhone but remember you need Redsn0w to reboot it since it's a tethered jailbreak. 
  6. Go to Setting --> General --> SIRI and Enable it. 
  7. Try rebooting it a few times if you can't get it to work. 
Some of the people had some issue during Step 6 as they can't find the Setting icon anymore. But I guess the most common one would be "Sorry, I'm having trouble connecting to the network" or "Sorry, I don't have a network connection" error. But once you are connected, Siri is live and active. So do try this out (at your own risk). Well as for me, I might wanna wait for the real deal is here. I mean no point installing something that is half way there right? But who am I to judge. Have fun peeps~!
