Earlier today we told you about a new Cydia tweak for your Jailbroken iPhone 4S dubbed AssistantExtensions. The AssistantExtensions Cydia tweak extends the out-of-the-box Siri functionality and allows developers to easily create custom Siri extensions themselves. One neat thing that the AssistantExtensions Cydia tweak can allow you to do fairly easily, as pointed out by iDB, is create custom Siri conversations.
Thus, in this how to guide from iJailbreak.com you will learn how to create custom Siri conversations on your Jailbroken iPhone 4S with the help of the AssistantExtensions Cydia tweak.
Create Custom Siri Conversations
Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is download and install the AssistantExtensions Cydia tweak to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
Step 2) – The next thing you will need to do is open TextEdit on Mac OS X, or Notepad on Windows and copy and paste the following into a blank document:
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”ISO-8859-1″?>
<pattern>YOUR CUSTOM SIRI QUESTION (MUST BE UPPERCASE)</pattern>
<template>your custom response (must be lowercase)</template>
When you have replaced the example text with your custom Siri conversation you will need to save the file with the extension “.aiml“.
Note: AIML stands for Artificial Intelligence Markup Language and is an XML compliant language.
Step 3) – Once you have saved your custom conversation file you will need to download an iPhone file-system editor program like iExplorer and go into the following directory:
Step 4) – When you are in the directory shown above you simply must drop you .aiml custom conversation file into the directory and wait for it to transfer.
Step 5) – Now simply activate Siri and speak “Let’s chat”, which will make Siri re-load her aiml directory and active your custom Siri conversation. When Siri finishes re-loading her data you can now begin speaking your custom conversation prompt.
Now that you know how to create a basic Siri conversation I suggest checking out some of the pre-made .aiml files in the/Library/AssistantExtensions/aiml/ directory to learn how to do more advanced things with Siri. We will how more how to guides available for customizing Siri with the AssistantExtensions Cydia tweak in the near future.
