If Apple’s Siri is the main reason you’d consider upgrading from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 4S, there may be a far cheaper way. A new app available through the Cydia jailbreak store claims to bring near full Siri integration to the iPhone 4.

WARNING: This hack violates Apple’s copyright laws and is therefore illegal. It also may send your personal information and emails to the H1Siri Proxy server. In other words: we can’t recommend it.

H1Siri, available to Jailbroken iPhone 4 handsets, is available through Cydia. While we can’t condone jailbreaking your iPhone 4 due to the dangers invovled, we can at least tell you how to go about it. Although remember, it’s not our fault if everything blows up.

1. Jailbreak

First, you’ll need to head to jailbreakme.com on your iPhone. The page looks like an app page in the App Store, for an app called Cydia. Install it, and it’ll land on your homescreen. Once done, you’ll be able to access the Cydia app store. Note: Updating your iPhone software will lose the Jailbreak, but still runs the risk of knackering your phone.

2. Settings

In Cydia, click Manage, Sources, Edit and then Add. Enter the following ‘http://www.iphone3gsystem.fr/cydia’ and click ‘Add Source’.

3. Installing

Now, back in the Cydia store, search for H1Siri, and install it (you may need to do so over WiFi). Turn you iPhone off and on, and you then should have the option to turn Siri on in the Settings menu.

See the H1Siri app for iPhone 4 tested to its limits by a bloke with a difficult accent:

H1Siri seems to function fine in terms of tasks within the phone such as setting up meetings, starting timers and alarms and sending texts, but anything web-related (that requires a chat between Siri and Apple’s servers) won’t fly.

H1Siri is obviously a bit black market, so don’t come crying to us if it doesn’t work as advertised. If you do have a go, let us know if it all goes smoothly on the ElectricPig Twitter feed.
