    You Can Install Siri on iPad 2 with Spire




    You can now run Siri directly on the iPad 2, thanks to the recent A5 jailbreak and a few third party tools. While Siri works as expected and will answer your questions and inquiries, getting this all put together isn’t exactly for the impatient and it’s a somewhat lengthy procedure with a fair amount of setup required. If you’re interested in this, here’s what you’ll need to get started:

    Jailbreak iPad 2 with Absinthe – must be on iOS 5.0.1

    Spire and iFile installed – free downloads via Cydia

    SiriProxy running on a computer – Mac OS X, Windows, or Linux

    Jailbreaking and installing Spire are the easy parts, it’s really the SiriProxy aspect that requires the most work. It’s also not without risk, as iDB tells us:

    This could make your iPad kick into “iPhone mode” which makes your screen look funky, as everything is sized for iPhone. A quick respring should fix this, but you’ve been warned. I had no problems with it, but it’s worth noting

    Read the full walkthrough on how to set it up at iDB or check out their great video below to get an idea of what’s entailed in the process.






    If you think it’s more trouble than it’s worth, there are rumors that the iPad 3 may include Siri as well, but that won’t be known for certain one way or another until around March.
