SiriToggles: Launch Apps, Control Brightness, and Toggle Settings Via Siri

By , Jan 21, 2012

It has barely been a day, and we’ve already seen a plethora of new jailbreak tweaks to take advantage of Siri in new ways. The latest is SiriToggles, and it looks like it could be one of the most promising thus far.

SiriToggles is like SBSettings for voice. You can literally control most of the vital aspects of your iPhone that you normally adjust on a day-to-day basis. Things like brightness, Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, and more can all be controlled using Siri commands.

Even better, Siri Toggles allows you to launch apps; and when we say launch apps, we mean every app, jailbreak or otherwise. Folks, you do not want to miss our preview of this jailbreak tweak if you’re in possession of an iPhone 4S. This is going to make your lives a whole lot easier…

SiriToggles is a natural extension of the Siri personal assistant, and frankly, we’re disappointed that it took a brilliant jailbreak developer to provide us with functionality that should have been there from the get go.

I’d easily pay money for this tweak, but it’s being distributed for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Developer, Hamza Sood, says it should be appearing on the Cydia store within the next 24 hours.

This is one of the main reasons I’ve wanted an iPhone 4S jailbreak for so long, and now that it’s finally here, and I’m actually able to use it, I can happily report that it’s just as great as we thought it would be when we initially previewed it.

Stay refreshing that Cydia app, folks. It’s coming soon. What do you think?

      I’m sure he had an agreement with the developer…………………………………………Don’t ya think?????

      I would’t give it to anyone if the developer told me not to………………

      • http://twitter.com/pokeh123 Hunter Forbus

        I know… But still if it is gonna be free why not give it to people. Well I guess Big Boss would get money from ads…

        @Hunter Forbus
        Boy I tell you people find a way to bit*h at anything. It’s a free f***ing app that will be available on Cydia in the next few hours. This guy could have easily charged $ for it but no. Not only that we want it free … we want it now. HOW DARE HE?!! Geez :Shaking_Head:.

  • mattsuperman148

    Jeff! Doesn’t this defeat the purpose of Siri.. Not saying programmed commands? Or can you say the phrase you want freely? Anyways, looking forward I getting it.

    Since the 4s jailbreak is out, aren’t we supposed to be able to get siri without a proxy?? Please reply.

    Hello Jeff thanks for all your advices can you please help us… we need a list, the most important list, a cydia apps and tweaks list that need reboot the iPhone 4……why this is so important? because most of the timeafter rebooting the phone we will end in Safe-Mode or with the Apple logo for good…. this is very annoying, you know better than me that in this particular situation we need to re-jailbreak the iPhone and re-install all the themes, apps and tweaks, we need to re-sync and do averything all over again. Reboot sometime is dangerous this week it hapend to me I had to re-jailbreak 3 times in a row due to no-compatible items with iOS5. So the solution is to avoid reboot the phone. Winterboard needs a reboot but we know that the phone will start again…so it’s safe but it won’t be the same with CallBar….and many others…. If you find this list let’s know. Thank you

    There is already a jailbreak out that does all this, it’s called SiriUtils from iHacks repo

    • Albert Nguyen

      It only does reboot , safe mode and respring

      • Gus Me

        It does the same things, this one (siritoggles) actually looks like the same app as siriutils, possibly repackaged for the masses, but who knows….

    I just posted this, but its not showing up on your site, so I’ll post it again. Since the untethered jailbreak for the 4s game out, shouldn’t we be able to get siri on older devices without a proxy??

    • Christopher Deal

      Nope. I don’t know where people are getting this notion either. One way or another the information still has to go THROUGH Apple. All the proxy allows is multiple devices to piggy-back upon another 4S. Spire is already out to give older devices a Siri interface and the proxy allows them to use Siri. I doubt there will be any way to use without a proxy unless Apple themselves ports Siri to their legacy devices.

    New to Cydia. I cannot seem to find this app. Has it been posted there yet??

    • Albert Nguyen

      No it has not been posted within 24 hrs

  • http://www.facebook.com/sanil.chitrakar Sanil Chitrakar

    I tried it, everything works, except i can’t get it open any apps for me. Am i missing something here ?

    • http://twitter.com/d_lusu Emil Culic

      Probably you have horrible English

    • Jameel kingdom

      You have to say “launch app ….”. For example launch app facebook will launch facebook app.

      • http://www.facebook.com/sanil.chitrakar Sanil Chitrakar

        I tried that but it was still saying can’t find that app. Then i didn’t say the word “app”… I just said “launch cydia” and it did finally…..but my facebook keeps crashing on launch…

  • http://twitter.com/jake1047s jacob wolin

    I’m excited for this one I’ve wanted this since I got my 4s back in October

  • Jameel kingdom

    Is this the same app as Siriutils? It has the same exact description word for word and does the same thing. The only difference seems to be the repos that host them. Did the developer change the name or something?

    • http://twitter.com/hamzasood Hamza Sood

      An early beta version of my tweak (SiriToggles) was stolen, renamed to SiriUtils and then posted by a new person with him claiming to be the “developer”. I filed a takedown request and I believe SiriUtils no longer exists

        how safe is it :S I’m really scared of adding tweaks

  • http://twitter.com/desaintpreux Highlander

    How do you install it?

    • http://twitter.com/willmelendezz William Melendez

      I know you can install a deb file through ifile. But if I’m not mistaking , don’t you need safari download manager ? But I’m aware that tweak is not compatible with ios 5 . So I don’t know ? Anybody know anything ?

    • http://twitter.com/NSDinfoTV NSDinfoTV

      im uploading a video now, should be up in 20 mins, how to install siritoggles, check my youtube page nsdinfotv

  • http://twitter.com/NSDinfoTV NSDinfoTV

    I have made a how-to video on installing this tweak, its not up on cydia so this is the only way to get the app watch?v=9pCdj6UeZfk

    jeff where is siritoggles?

    • http://www.facebook.com/sanil.chitrakar Sanil Chitrakar

      Its out in bigboss now.

  • Alvin Mendez

    Best thing that’s happened since the 4S came out. There’s a few of these apps now, but SiriUtils seems best

    • http://twitter.com/hamzasood Hamza Sood

      Please don’t confuse SiriUtils with something real. Read my above post but basically an early version of my tweak (SiriToggles) was stolen and reuploaded as SiriUtils. I got it taken down though

  • http://www.facebook.com/mario.kaufmann2 Mario Kaufmann

    Will there be any translations? German Siri is crippled enough without wolfram, location based answers and map functionality :-)

  • http://twitter.com/r0cket1000 Tony M

    Isn’t much faster to just swipe SBsettings and enable those features yourself? I mean I love that we have this option, but I just dont see myself taking more time (especially knowing that Siri at times doesnt want to connect) talking to Siri to enable/disable a simple feature that only takes 2 seconds vs 4-5 for Siri to do it.

    Am I missing something here? I’d like to put this to use somehow.

  • Dillan Mills

    How did you get your cydia to load so fast??

  • Anonymous

    Are we all such fanboy barchs that we just accept Siri as ‘Beta’ – its the main selling point of the 4S and Apple manage to cop out by putting a beta tag on it. Siri doesn’t understand you? Doesn’t locate stuff out of the US. Oh its because its beta – LAME!

    How long should something be allowed to be called Beta?

  • Anonymous

    Pff, now all we need is a good Siri for non-A5 devices which does not require a proxy host, because that sucks balls. I hope there is one coming out soon since the 4S just got jailbroken. SiriToggles is awesome!

  • iamlynda

    Just dowloaded it – works like a charm!!

    • http://twitter.com/MagicHDx EnZiC

      whats the repo to it?

      • iamlynda

        BigBoss. I just refreshed Cydia then did a search for SiriToggle. very easy to find

  • Anonymous

    There are a lots of apps and tools for iPhone, but all in all I am impressed by the possibilities of Siritoggles. From what I’ve seen from the short demo I tend to think that it would be one of the best.
    Well done. I am waiting for the final issue. Thanks in advance!!

  • Mohammad Alyamy

    can i close the apps on the background with it

  • Anonymous

    i deleted this app quickly. Here is why:

    When i was in lock screen mode and held down home button to activate Siri she would say she cannot perform that action when my phone is in lock screen mode. I would slide to unlock and get to the code window and viola…..my phone would open without a code. Maening you can open the phone without a code but just activating siri from sleep mode. That a huge nono!!! My life is on that phone and that’s why I have a code. Deleted!!! At least until I here there is a fix.
