Jailbreak Hack Enables Siri on iPhone 4 and 4th-gen iPod touch

Owners of iPhone 4 will surely be pleased to find out that Siri might become available on their devices, too. New reports reveal that hackers have finally been able to bring the new Siri voice assistant feature into jailbroken devices, including here iPhone 4 and the 4th generation iPod touch.

Initially, the new hack was made public on Twitter, where Steve Troughton-Smith and Grant Paul promoted it. Naturally, the hack can be used by jailbroken devices, only. However, the two hackers claimed that the application is not ready for public release, at least not yet. 

Users of Apple devices commonly are familiar with the concept of jailbreaking. In case you do not know what jailbreaking is, you should find out that this actually is the process through which Apple’s operating system is modified to become compatible with certain applications that otherwise are unauthorized by the company.

To show exactly what they worked at, the two hackers provided a video that details the entire process through which Siri becomes usable on the iPhone 4 and iPod touch through jailbreaking. The two hackers claimed that the hack will become available for users once they are sure it is 100 percent safe and functional. When will this happen exactly, is something that remains unknown.

Siri is a feature that Apple officially announced in October, the feature being exclusive to iPhone 4S. Since the release of iPhone 4S, Siri has been described as a standout feature, which can lead to an immense popularity of this device. There is no wonder after all that a jailbreak hack is willing to make Siri functional on the iPhone 4 and iPod touch, as well.

The reason why Apple claimed to want Siri to remain an exclusive for iPhone 4S was to distinguish this device from all the other models released until now. Probably, part of this decision was influenced by the criticism that was linked to Apple’s smartphone, which took 16 months to be released, even though it featured almost no differences compared to its predecessor.

Meanwhile, Siri remains officially available only on the iPhone 4S, but maybe a jailbreak will help users of iPhone 4 and iPod touch access it, too.
