Yesterday, Siri was successfully ported to the iPhone 4 and shown on video. Today, the same person who made that video has uploaded another one, which shows more improvement.

In the first video, Siri was lagging, and looked like it could barely run on the iPhone 4. This is because the GPU was disabled for Siri, putting all the pressure on the A4 processor. As you can see in this video, Siri now works the way it should on the iPhone 4 performance-wise…

The only issue they have left to fix the fact that Siri can’t connect to Apple’s servers, which renders Siri useless.

What are your thoughts? Do you look forward to using Siri on your iPhone 4?

  • Vinny954

    I wonder how their going to port it in the end, considering that they need to connect to Apple’s servers. Maybe it’s just me, but Siri for the iPhone 4S is a bit slow?

    • Angel

      They said something about hooking it up with googles servers instead

      • Dave

        Who is “they”?

      • Angel

        Read it somewhere on a blog but not sure if it’s true or not

      • Angel

        “Troughton-Smith also suggests it could theoretically be possible to hook the Siri front end into Microsoft’s TellMe, or Google’s servers instead.”

    Great to see. Yes, definittely looking forward to using

  • Useless now… But maybe soon it will work! 🙂

  • Max

    That sounds awesome because the only reason why I want the iPhone 4S is because of Siri. I’m happy with my iPhone 4 but I do have a question. If I decide right now to upgrade to iOS5 would I be able to jailbreak it once the Dev-team release the software or am I stuck with iOS5? Thanks

    • SoCoMagNuM

      i have iPhone 4 running on iOS5 jailbroken. its tethered only at the moment.

    • PoW

      Your able to jailbreak now with redsnow or snowbreeze on IOS5 BUT the jailbreak for it will be tethered. That is why most people who jailbreak don’t update yet. They are waiting for the upcoming hardworked untethred jailbreak.

      • SoCoMagNuM

        this is actually my first time using a tethered jailbreak and i must say its not as bad as some make it out to be. as long as i dont power off my phone (which i rarely do) i really dont have a problem with it. only time my phone runs out of battery is when i do my monthly reset of battery and let it run dry so it can recharge with new ions. that helps preserve battery life and the life of the battery itself.

    • John

      You can upgrade and jailbreak iOS 5, but it will be a tethered jailbreak for now. They’re working on an untethered jailbreak right now. Also, not all Cydia apps are 100% compatible with iOS 5 yet.

      • Max

        I was thinking about getting iOS5 just to play with it because i really need the Reminder App. Then once the new jailbreak comes out, I can jailbreak. Do anyone think that’s a bad idea?

      • Brian

        Any idea if you can use the tethered jailbreak on iOS 5, then run the untethered jailbreak later without having to restore again?

    • QuarterSwede

      Brian, that’s worked in past jailbreaks.

  • SoCoMagNuM

    it wasnt useless when it was an app from the app store.

  • Will this also work on the 4th gen iPod touch?

    • CrazyBraulz

      I think they might do it for every iDevice but it’s most useful on the iPhone cause you can use it anywhere you are.

      • Tom

        would u have to use a microphone from the earphones or something like that

  • Maia

    Way better!!

  • Cant they use fake requests and trick Apple’ servers thinking the request is coming from an iPhone 4s?

  • Skiridr

    Link Siri to google network

  • Leslie

    Thats right I can’t wait to have it on my iPhone 4

  • Oliver turgeon

    I cant wait to try it out on my iphone 4 when should siri be available will it be available i the app store or it comes as an update thank you!!!

  • Abdul

    hi guy’s i think i will take a lot off time becuse siri is still a beta
    and there is many fail in it so the hacker want release it to the
    iphone 4 until it is full release to the iPhone 4s so you will wait
    to much on it, as the are waiting to the iOS 5 is full release to
    set an untethered jailbreak down good luck guys……………

  • MALdito

    Looking forward to this!

  • Devan

    Looking for Siri on iPhone 4!!!

  • SabiPhone10

    Can’t wait!!!!!!!

  • XepptizZ

    I’d commit genocide for siri, is she’d ask me too.

    • potamus

      Not a nice comment, if you ask me… Totally out of context.

  • Would definitely be nice to get Siri on the iPad too….

  • Bob

    If the port was linked to google servers than it wouldn’t be the same would it?

  • Pablo

    Apple Server = Need Internet all the time in order to work , so whats the new in Siri … It is the same like Dragon Dictation and other apps… Google Server can do the same.

    • Jeff

      If course you need internet for it to work, do you realize how much space it would take up of all of Siri was stored directly on the iPhone? They would need a much larger version than 64GB, that’s for sure.

  • iynque

    I would think Apple would do everything they can to prevent Siri from working on an iPhone 4. It’s the only thing new in the iPhone 4S that anyone actually wants.

  • Rando

    Other than a larger screen, I’d take the 4S screen, camera, CPU/GPU, build quality over any device out there. Siri is definitely a plus, but I don’t think they sold out of devices because of it.

    I wish they would stop on fooling with siri and worry about the jailbreak for iPad 2 on iOS 5.

  • pipo

    I ve restored my iphone 4 to ios5 and i have jailbroken it so can someone please tell me here i can find siri!!!!!

    • Prplaya420

      Dude it’s not even out yet lol there still working on it

  • pipo

    link siri to twitter

  • Chico

    That’s great news but I’m also expecting mirror on my iphone4
    Any news on this?

    Cheers

  • Sonncee37

    I think once the hype dies down for the 4s it will be ported to all devices

  • MiboiIh

    Yes, siri is in beta stage. Once the hype will downnnn it will be ported to iPhone 4 and other devices. Just wait and see…

  • Moi87

    • Ben

      You can say that again!

  • Cameron MacGregor

    There was a post made on here stating that Siri is technically not limited to A5 iOS devices. It could run on any iOS device running iOS5 but just need to wait and see if apple will play ball. I’m an iPhone4 user and I’m happily able to use my iPhone without Siri. It’s still in beta for crying out loud and you all think software is readdy the second it is released. That is not always the case. Siri IS a beta. So chillax guys. Play around with iOS5. And the untethered jailbreak will be with us soon 😉

  • Hasson

    Cydia should provide us with servers :p

  • Morgan

    I may be a bit of a contrarian, but I really don’t want my phone to verbally tell me what Apple’s servers think the answers to my questions should be. In addition, hearing one side of someone’s phone call is annoying, hearing both sides of someone’s conversation with their phone will be maddening.

  • ShaolinFist

    Siri is the only reason I would upgrade to a 4s. So far the 4 still does what I need it to. I’m not worried though. As soon as the 4s hype goes away, we can start hearing the 5 rumors all over again.

  • Lynne

    I want Siri on my iphone 4. Just purchased the iPhone4 eight months ago when Verizon released it. Not eligible for upgrade for another year! I really don’t think Apple should make me wait that long for Siri!!!! Come on Apple…we are loyal customers…give us what we need!!!

  • Been

    i can,t wait,,,,, this is why i dont upgrade yet and my cousin went to AT&T to do an early upgrade they said they do not alow early upgrade for the IPHONE4S at AT&T

  • Idea: Someone make an open-source linked server cluster w/ multiple locations. People could add their own servers by installing special software. It would serve as the ultimate voice recognition server.

  • zain

    i want the siri assistant on my iphone 4
    what is the download procedure

  • sonncee37

    Its funny that the iPhone 4s has a faster processor and better camera but the only thing people are talking about is siri why is that lol

  • Pankaj

    sonnce thats because iphone4 is also fast and has very camera people dont need more that that so only thing 4s has is siri thats why.

    guys please let me also know how to put siri on 4

  • Pankaj

    i am sure ios5 already has it. its just how to activate it
