Siri voice assistant has been hacked, ported successfully connected to Apple’s servers on iPod touch 4G and iPhone 4 as confirmed by iOS developers stroughtonsmith and chpwn. The hackers have released a teaser video showing Siri running on iPod touch 4G. Additionally, they also have posted a screenshot showing Apple’s server connected on iPhone 4 with Siri system.
Two weeks back Steve Troughton-Smith had hacked Siri but was in very alpha version and they were not able to connect to Apple’s servers due to the authentication process that are implemented in Siri App but not they are able to flawlessly by-pass the authentication and connect to the servers with ‘Voice’ on iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G.
It is now proved that Siri is not processor dependent and can work with A4 processor also which was earlier anticipated to be not possible. Siri works slower on these earlier iOS devices due to poor performance of the microphone. You have to be louder and closer to the microphone to operate Siri.
The hack definitely requires jailbreaking iOS 5 but developers have yet not decided any public release of the hack due to repackaging and distributing Apple’s code. But they will be releasing it once the jailbreak of iPhone 4S is publicly released. Stay connected to us on twitter or Facebook, we will provide you as and when the hackers will release it.
