A few months of work by iOS hackers Grant Paul (aka chpwn), Steven Troughton-Smith and Ryan Petrich has culminated in the release of Spire, a new installer that will easily set up Siri on your jailbroken iOS 5 device. While Apple has kept its little helper exclusively constrained to the iPhone 4S, it now runs on iPads, iPhone 4, iPod touches and the iPhone 3GS, and while that’s been done before they claim the other new trick is that it’s legal, avoiding the copyright infringement inherent in previous hacks. When installed it will initiate a 100MB download of Siri directly from Apple so watch your bandwidth limits, and also be prepared to set up your own proxy server with donated info from an iPhone 4S to hold the line between Apple’s backend and yourself. It’s available on Cydia now so if you’ve been waiting for a way to get this feature for yourself it’s not far away, however Troughton-Smith tells 9to5 Mac that the next major step may not come until the iPhone 4S is jailbroken and they can avoid the proxy server issues altogether.

Question by tomlawbcs: Are there any iphone “Proxy” apps? I live in Mexico and would like my iphone to think I’m in the USA. That way I can use my US Vonage or maybe there’s another iphone app service out there as well that would require me to be in the USA. Which I am not…
Answer by HaredXNo, proxies are for internet connections not 3G cellular connections, they do not work in the same way. There is no way to make your phone think that it’s in the US because the way cellular technology works is that it connects to the nearest broadcasting tower.
