Make Siri Do Almost Anything With AssistantExtensions Cydia Tweak

We’ve already said this before and we’ll say it again. Siri is amazing and is one of the strongest reasons why anyone would want to buy the iPhone 4S. And after the release of the iPhone 4s Jailbreak, Siri has been doing things that it never could before. Take the Sireet Cydia tweak for example, it can be used to tweet with the help of Siri on your iPhone 4S.

AssistantExtension Cydia tweak

This new Cydia tweak, AssistantExtensions, gives Siri much more power than what it has now. It’s not just a tweak, but it is a framework that increases the possibilities of what can be done using Siri. The AssistanExtensions Cydia tweak is based upon MobileSubstrate and can be used to control a lot of things on your iPhone 4S. Here is a list of things that AssistantExtensions Cydia tweak can do out-of-the-box:

  • System commands: tweet, show tweet, launch apps, set brightness to XX %, restart springboard, generate a random number and more.
  • Toggles: you can literally toggle on/off all the shortcuts found in SBSettings.
  • Chat Bot: You can chat with Siri. To start, just say “Let’s chat” and wait a moment. Loading times will be improved a lot in future releases.

That’s not it. Since this is a MobileSubstrate tweak, hackers and developers can come up with their own extensions for the tweak, which means more commands. There already is a YouTube extension that shows thumbnails of search results via Siri. Another neat aspect to this tweak is that it will also have multi-lingual support in the future, in case you speak a language that Siri can’t understand.

AssistantExtensions How To

This is a serious tweak and will extend Siri’s capabilities much more. And to top it all, the AssistantExtensions tweak is available as a FREE download from the BigBoss repo. So go on, what are you waiting for?

We will have how to guides available for customizing Siri with the AssistantExentsions Cydia tweak in the near future so stay tuned. Until that time please leave any questions or thoughts in the comments section below.

  1. I definitely want to know how to write my own commands!

  2. useless when i say what’s new on facebook or post on facebook, it said can’t do it. Everytime i say tweet it always mistaken with date or delete or whatsoever, and everytime i say “open twitter” it will just hear “open”

  3. I love this extension and It makes my iPad siri better than my 4s

  4. Well, maybe try learning to write AIML first, and write the code for the facebook and twitter options yourself.. Also make sure your talking into the correct part of your phone. Seriously. It works amazingly. The features w/ facebook might not be available, read the functions, don’t flame.

    I tried to ask it how much battery life i had left and it said “would you like me to search the web for you”    i thought that was a command!!!!

  6. It would be great if you could create specific commands to save yourself from multistep processes. Like if you type the phrase you’d say, then click a button that takes you to a simulation of your home screen and you open the app and do what you want it to do, then hit done. For example, if you wanted to open a specific note in notes, make a facebook status, upload a photo on facebook, play a station on pandora, open voxer for a specific person, pull up a specific pdf or other file… the possibilities are endless :P

  7. Does this tweak work if i have Siri on my Iphone 4??

  8. yes

  9. Anyone else notice that iJokes/Chatbot breaks regular Siri? It seems to hang on the “Shall I create it” part. I hope they can fix it, as I miss Chatbot from my IRC days.

  10. same in french??

  11. how do u put siri on your ipad?

  12. Help it won’t work on my iPhone 4 ios 6.1.2

  13. Because you don’t have Siri on that, duhh

  14. Ipad 3,4, and mini have it preinstalled
