How to open Siri directly from your Home screen

By , Feb 27, 2012

SiriBoard is a simple jailbreak tweak that places a shortcut to Siri directly on your iPhone’s SpringBoard.

This will allow you to launch Siri from any Home screen page, or even place the shortcut into your dock or in a folder.

Personally, I think holding the Home button is the most efficient way to launch Siri, but perhaps you feel otherwise?

If so, then head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where you can download FreeManRepo’s creation for free.

You will of course need Siri enabled on your jailbroken device, which means you have an iPhone 4S, or you use Spire on an older device.

Let us know what your feelings are on SiriBoard below.

    Great video Jeff (as per usual), however, wouldn’t it be courteous to credit the developer of this tweak?

    Just a thought.

        Lol showing the Cydia page of the app doesn’t count as ‘crediting the developer’.

    Nice tweak. It would be better if it had a square shape to the icon, kinda looks out of place on the springboard.

      Yeah! Too many jailbreak apps have icons that are the wrong size, shape or resolution. It’s not hard to get it right.

    I like it, especially since my home button is starting to go… To access siri I have to hold the home button down pretty hard and I notice that it just keeps getting harder and harder to do.

        no, it’s a tweak that lets you replace the camera on the lock screen with any app you want .

        Look it up on cydia : ” anylockapp”

        I think there’s a tweak which replaces the Camera with the Siri toggle.
