So Siri is back in the news with the porting-it-to-non-iPhone 4S-devices issue. Developers have been working hard at it to legally port it to non-iPhone 4S devices. Although they did manage to achieve this by porting Siri to an iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G, but still the way they used in the port was not legal. So now, hackers (or developers, whatever you say) are working on a new project named “i4Siri” to legally port Siri to the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
According to the official “i4Siri” site,
The project i4Siri generally is supposed to port siri to iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G. Specifically we are looking to make a similar server like apple’s that runs and processes siri dictations just like apple exempt ours will NOT log personal data and it will not require regeneration of 4S keys every 24 hours.
They also uploaded a video of Siri fuctioning on an iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
So as you can see in the video above, both devices are running on iOS 5 and Siri is fully functioning on the iPhone 4 while Siri on iPod Touch is quite laggy and has many glitches — so that seriously needs some work on it to make it perfect. And as far as the Siri on iPhone 4 is concerned, it doesn’t look there is any problem with it at all.
Lets hope that these developers fix these problems, and release Siri for non-iPhone 4S devices as soon as possible. As it really feels a bit left out when you see your friend using Siri on his iPhone 4S, while you can’t use it, although you have an iPhone 4.
