Say bye to Siri0us for now. Nuance forces developer to pull the tweak.

Say bye to Siri0us for now. Nuance forces developer to pull the tweak.Hey, remember Siri0us? That jailbreak tweak we told you about today that allowed you to use dictation on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 4? Yeah, it got pulled from Cydia today. Apparently, Eric Day, the developer of the tweak, was forced to pull it down after Nuance, the company whose voice-recognition technology the tweak used, denied him the rights to the technology. In other words, Nuance didn’t like him or Siri0us.

But don’t lose courage iPhone 4 users who don’t want to upgrade. After all, Eric Day hasn’t. In fact, he’s already on the hunt to find a free alternative technology to use in place of Nuance. As soon as he finds one, he’ll be sure to re-upload Siri0us.

Say bye to Siri0us for now. Nuance forces developer to pull the tweak.As for you lucky ones who downloaded the tweak before it was pulled, you’re in luck – for now. Siri0us still works. However, there’s a chance that Nuance will be pulling the plug on that shortly. So have fun telling your iPhone what to write while it lasts.
