Jackoplane, the mastermind behind this hack, has announced today that he has successfully ported Siri to other devices running iOS 5, and has gotten them to communicate with Apple’s servers without any issues. What this means essentially is that all iOS 5 devices are indeed capable of running Siri. The best part? No jailbreaking is required.
I know you’re anxious right now. All you want to know is when, where, and how. Well folks, don’t hold your breath. Although the main part has been done, Jack says, “the hardest part is still ahead.” Regardless, the best part besides Siri being available on iPads and iPod touches is that you don’t have to jailbreak to get the assistant when she becomes available. Jack mentioned that you’ll use a program called NSFileManager. This allows you to access the files of your iOS device directly. However, something tells me that Apple will be working on patching up the open access points soon.
To give people a sense of what he’s doing and where he is in the process, Jack tweeted out an F.A.Q.
For those of you who don’t believe this for whatever reason, Jack mentions that a video demoing Siri on the various devices is in the works. What do you think? Do you want Siri on all devices or do you think it should remain exclusive to the 4S? Share your wisdom below!
