There are quite a lot of SiriPorts coming up these days, but each comes with a lot of problems of its own. While many do not work at all, some work for a while and then suddenly stop functioning. We’ve already talked about why Siri can’t be easily ported to other devices (iPhone 4, 3GS etc) due to the iPhone 4S certification that Apple servers use.
There’s another method where you don’t have to buy Siri proxy servers and still can somehow manage to use Siri on iPhone 4 – with SiriTD app which is available for jailbroken iPhones on Cydia.
Here’s how to install Siri on iPhone 4 / 3GS with SiriTD:
You’ll need a jailbroken iPhone 4 / 3GS or other iDevices running iOS 5.1, 5.0.1 or 5.0.
You will also need to have Spire installed on your iDevice.
Reboot your iOS device now – once it resprings, Siri will be automatically downloaded from Apple’s own servers.
Now it’s time add the proxy to Spire’s settings. Go to Settings → Spire → and then add this proxy host: https://siritd.com:123
At last, you just have to do one more step. Download and email the certificate from this link and then open it on your iDevice. This will install the certificate.
Respring or reboot the device.
That’s it. Now you should be able to use Spire on the SiriTD port easily.
Advantage of SiriTD
The most common problem faced by Siri-ports is that of the session of the iPhone 4S validation expiring. The other one is the server becoming too loaded due to the usage of similar keybindings. All these are avoided by SiriTD over some good methods that involves MySQL databases and changing validations which are quite complex but make sure that the server is up and running at all times.
Of course, makers of SiriTD have not ruled out the possibility of Siri slowing down or becoming unresponsive at times, but several users have reported that the SiriTD Siri-port has been very successful and useful.
