We had some great news for you yesterday in regard to the possibility of porting the intelligent voice assistant Siri to A4 iDevices like iPhone 4 and iPod 4G. We said that@Gojhonnyboi was working hard on the port but there were still some problems.

Today we have somewhat disappointing news for you concerning the waiting period for Siri port to A4 devices. Turns out an iPhone 4S jailbreak is required for the port to iPhone 4 and other iDevices running on iOS 5.

RedS0w jailbreak tool is available for iDevices running on iOS 5, but so far it`s still a tethered jailbreak.

iH8sn0w tweeted saying that a jailbreak for iPhone 4S is required to port Siri, but until then any attempt would be considered piracy which is illegal and refused by a lot of hackers and jailbreakers.

“The only way I could see Siri being *legally* available for devices other than the iPhone 4S is when a jailbreak is available for it. A tool could be developed to transfer all required files from the 4S to another possible candidate via USB. Other than that, it would just be straight up piracy as mentioned by@MuscleNerd a few days ago. #OpenThinking”

What MuscleNerd said on the day of iOS 5 release is that Siri will require piracy to get it on other devices. That will be illegal and most of hackers & developers won’t agree to do that.

There’s no a big status about the iPhone 4S jailbreak but we’ve known that both the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S have the same bootrom and dumping this bootrom has already started by some jailbreak hackers.[Via]
