How to Install Siri on iPhone 4 Running iOS 5?
Hi Jaxov, is there a way to download and install Siri on iPhone 4 running on iOS 5? Do I need to jailbreak my iPhone? What do I need to do to get Siri? Thanks.

Hello Carlyn! Well, Siri for iPhone 4 is still in the works. Recently, jailbreak app developer Joshua Tucker has successfully ported Siri personal assistant
on fourth-gen iPhone and iPad-1 running iOS 5
. The target is to port Siri on all iOS 5 supported iOS devices, which includes iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 4G, and iPod Touch 3G (No iPad 2 support). At the moment, there’s currently no ETA on when Siri will be released for jailbreakers. But it is expected to hit Cydia Store before the end of this month.
Of course, since Siri is exclusive for iPhone 4S only, you will need to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch on iOS 5 in order to port and use Siri on your device as it will require some tricks to make Apple Server believe that your iOS device is an iPhone 4S. Anyway, while waiting for Siri for iPhone 4 and other iOS devices, you can check this blog post to download and know more about Redsn0w 0.9.9b7. Once downloaded, just simply follow this guide to jailbreak iOS 5 on iPhone 4 using Redsn0w.
