The latest iOS 5 update has paved the way for iPhone 4 users to get Siri on their devices.
iOS 5 hacker MuscleNerd tweeted Friday that the iOS 5.0.1 update includes Siri-related system files that were previously encrypted, making it possible to extract the necessary files for a Siri port without infringing on Apple’s copyright.
MuscleNerd said, “to clarify: wide open for inspection from a Mac/PC…not wide open security wise Can get Siri files and such without piracy”.
He added, “it’s the first public 4S ipsw where the main filesystem keys are obtainable (due to non-encrypted ramdisks).”
This meams that hackers now have the possibility to make Siri legal on older Apple devices.
