SiriPort Activated

Finally i have been able to activate SiriPort on my iPad 1 after some trial and error for 1 day. SiriPort is a porting of the famous Siri that was only available for iPhone 4S to other iDevices, including iPad. It was created by the Russian hacker.

Here's the short tutorial that i performed to install SiriPort :
  • Make sure you have iOS 5.1.1 and untethered jailbreak using the latest absinthe tool 2.0.2
  • Open up Cydia and add a new repo: http://repo.siriport.ru/
  •  You can search for SiriPort in Search tab and install it. 
    • If it failed, you can download the deb file manually and install it using iFile
  • Reboot your device
  • Open up Safari browser and visit http://siriport.ru/1.crt
  • Install the certificate
  • Reboot your device
  • Enable Location Services and Use Siri (or enable it on Settings > General > Siri)
  • Activate Siri by holding the HOME button for 2 seconds until the microphone icon showed up and say "Hi Siri". This process might not be successfull at first attempt due to heavy load on Apple Servers probably, so keep trying doing this until she replied back. I got mine activated after trying for one day.
  • Enjoy Siri :)
