Two hackers have managed to port a limited version of Siri to a jailbroken iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G.
YESSSSS!!!!! Time to throw out my old iPod Touch! Just another example that makes me amazed by hackers.
Wonder how fast Apple will try to shut down the service to jailbreak phones
Apple has tried to make jailbreaking illegal, but the courts ruled against them. The only thing they can do to jailbreakers now is void their warranty.
But in this case where jailbroken phones access their server, I guess the same will apply. Either brick the phones or block the service somehow.
hackers and modders do things that the manufacturers can do but dont want to do. see, if they released siri for older iphones capable of doing it, why would they want the new iphone? its nothing new. HTC is the same. it took the hackers to port sense ui 3.0 to the older HTC models like the Desire Z and Desire HD <both of which are on Sense UI 2.0>
should have been possible from the start. you are correct, I think its to catch users that don't know, very easy if you ask me.
Since i don't have an iPhone 4 or 4S, i will try the Siri on my iPod Touch 4G.
Bound to happen sooner or later
If the iphone was open then think of all the possibilities!
