Siri requires piracy on non iPhone 4S devicesYou might think that the Dev Team is almighty when it comes to making everything and anything work with your iDevice, but bear in mind that just like how Hal Jordan in the 2011 movie Green Lantern put it, “We have a saying on earth, that is, ‘We’re only human.’” Guess that is where the Dev Team draws the line this time around, as they are unable to port the iPhone 4S’ new Siri feature to other iOS-powered devices like the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4. According to MuscleNerd, if they were to make an attempt, it will most likely involve piracy – so that is off limits to them. Here’s a tweet from MuscleNerd himself.

Anyone hoping for a “port” of Siri from iPhone4S: pending a very low-level A5 exploit, it likely can’t be done without piracy Siri requires piracy on non iPhone 4S devices

(only way to extract Siri files from iPhone4S filesystem without pirating is to have the main FS keys, requiring low-level exploit)

To put it in a nutshell, an iPhone 4 cannot be tricked into masquerading itself as an iPhone 4S in order to download Siri from Apple directly. Of course, who knows that the Dev Team might change their minds down the road?
