Two iPhone hackers, Paul and Ryan, have come up with a new Siri port which they say will bring all voice assistant’s quality to any jailbroken iOS 5 device legally.
Ryan Petrich and Grant Paul says their Spire installer which they just released brings all the iPhone 4S Siri functionality to any jailbroken iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4 device, iPod Touch and the iPad’s.
Paul says, “Spire uses a new method to obtain the files necessary for Siri, so it doesn’t have the copyright issues encountered by previous attempts.”
It’s not the easiest of the solutions presently, though because Apple still requires an authorization to use the Siri feature, and that means any information from the iPhone 4S is still required through the use of proxy.
“Paul said that for anyone who already owns an iPhone 4S – or has a friend that does – it’s just a matter of using the phone’s own authentification tokens. Otherwise, he says, it may be possible for them to use Google Chrome’s speech API, hooked up to code that can decode the Siri requests and parse Google’s result.”
“Maybe in the future someone will find a way to evade the authorization requirement, but from my position here that is unlikely,” he says. “Hopefully, however, you will be able to figure something out.” TGdaily

He continues by saying that if the iphone 4S device is jailbroken, that there’s no need to worry about the proxy server in order for the device to work.
Presently, the Spire is freely available on Cydia and you can get it from this link. However, Paul warns users that it uses a memory of about 100MB of data, and that means that a Wi-Fi connection is highly necessary.
