Just now we reported you about a new jailbreak tweak called Spire which brings iPhone 4S Siri Assistant feature legally on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G and iPad 1 devices running iOS 5.0/5.0.1 firmware. The best part of this port on older device is not only it is legal but also it is much more stable and reliable as compared to other ports such as H1Siri already available in Cydia store. It is only because Spire download all required files directly from Apple’s servers and enables you to set up your own proxy server instead of one public proxy server.
