Earlier today we told you that the moment numerous people have been all waiting for is here. A developer has illegally distributed Siri in the form of a Cydia tweak called H1Siri across 3rd partyCydia repositories. The H1Siri Cydia tweak allows owners of an iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G to use Siri. Unlike previous claimed ports of Siri, H1Siri is a fully functioning port of Siri meant for the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G. It will bring the same great Siri functionality the iPhone 4S features to these older generation Apple devices.
WARNING: H1Siri is illegal as previously mentioned. This is because the Cydia tweak contains Apple’s copyrighted GUI files. Additionally it is has been mentioned by Chpwn that installing this Cydia tweak may pose a risk of sending personal information like emails, SMS messages and your location to the creators of H1Siri.
If you have read the above warning and still want to proceed, you can follow this How To guide on installing H1Siri to your iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G. We will be providing the latest H1Siri Cydia sources as they come around, and this will allow you to download H1Siri and install it to finally use this fully functioning Siri port. So get ready to get your hands dirty and let’s begin…

Step 6) – Once H1Siri has been installed, you will need to simply go into the Settings.app and enable H1Siri through the appropriate tab.
Note: If you find that Siri cannot connect to the server, then this is because there is currently too much traffic hammering the server. Sometimes you can fix this error by restarting your iOS device once again, but generally it simply means you will need to come back later.
Congratulations! You now have the fully functioning Siri port, H1Siri on your iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G
