Siri on all iOS powered devices thanks to jailbreak hackers

After apple announced Siri would be iphone4S only, jailbreak hackers have started working overtime to give siri for all iOS powered devices.

Famous hackers iH8snow and Gojohnnyboi have announced that they have already ported the Siri to the previous generation iPod Touch already. But it still needs lot of effort to make Siri work on
iPod Touch. iH8snow said “work in progress”. According to the developers , Siri would be available to iPod Touch soon after the public release of the iOS5 and iPhone4S devices. They think there might be some important files of  Siri missing in the iOS5 GM, on which they have been working on.

Statement from iH8snow about the process, as reported by JOSH Tucker :


“It’s definitely not just a plist value that you have to change in order to get Siri. Thus far, it has required a lot of searching and digging. After sending all the known information to John, I’m beginning to find that it is much harder than expected. We’re using an iPod touch 4G now but our aim is to port it to all devices that Apple won’t support. At this point, we’re unsure of whether Siri requires certain hardware components or not. At this point, we can’t say but are still trying. After buying the iPhone 4S myself, I will be looking to see if there are any new files that are not available on the current iOS 5 version. This might be our stopping point.”
