The Spire Cydia tweak allows you to easily install the Siri GUI (graphical user interface) on your non-iPhone 4S device. The only problem with the Spire Cydia tweak is that users still need to find a working Spire Proxy Server or create their own.
In february we told you about a free Spire Proxy Server called The Three Little Pigs that relied on iPhone 4S owners donating their keys to keep their service alive. Although this method of providing a free Spire Proxy Server can be reliable at times, when there are too many people trying to connect via the same keys things become slow and frustrating. Thus, if you are looking for an alternative to The Three Little pigs Spire Proxy Server then you may want to try i4Siri.
The i4Siri team have recently been working on creating a functional Spire Proxy Server that does not rely on iPhone 4S keys. The way they went about accomplishing this is by creating a hybrid server using siriServer by Eichhoernchen and SiriProxy by plamoni. This allowed them to get rid of the requirement of contacting Apple’s servers, as instead Google’s text to speech API is used for command processing. This of course also has its own pros and cons, but allows the i4Siri Spire Proxy Server to function independently.
With the recent success of creating an alternative solution for Siri command processing the i4Siri team have announced that their Spire Proxy Server has now been launched to the public.
Our developers have worked hard, and with months of data analysis, testing, and tweaking; We now have a stable product to be enjoyed by many thousand more people for free. Our numbers through this beta have been staggering, with over 2,000 participants, and more then 1,500,000 requests made you have proved to us the demand is there.
If you would like to use the i4Siri Spire Proxy Server on your non-iPhone 4S device with Spire then you will be glad to know the details on how to do this can be found below.
Configure The i4Siri Proxy Server
Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is obviously install the Spire Cydia tweak to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
Step 2) – Once Spire has been installed, go into the Settings.app, tap on the general tab, then the Siri tab and finally toggle Siri to the ON position.
Step 3) – Go back to the main Settings menu and tap the Spire tab. Enter the following URL:
Step 4) – Now go to the following address in mobile safari and install the certificate to your iOS device.
Congratulations! You should now be able to hold down the home button to activate Siri and have “her” answer your questions. Please leave any questions or further thoughts on the i4Siri Spire Proxy Server in the comments section below…

Jordan Crisp says
It will not work for me, I have been really desperate for Siri on my iPod
This is gonna get so overloaded I’ll be surprised if someone has it working for longer than 5 minutes…Best bet is too really just get on a private siri server.

KONY 2012 says
the passcode of your phone asshole
My springboard crashes and sends me to Safe Mode.
it has not worked for me….
works for me flawlessly. thx people for your hard work.
This has been working mostly flawlessly for me for 24 hours. I do get occasional issues with it not being able to accept requests right now. But they tend to clear up in a minute or so which leads me to beleive it maybe a server load issue. But otherwise this is the first one that I have gotten to actually work and work well.
this does works for me. thanks for ur hard work.
Kevin Harter says
Worked great for me! THANK YOU!
Now… I’m already bored with Siri after 10 minutes. She just keeps asking me questions about what I asked. Can’t get her to text or email anyone. “I’m sorry but I could not find the forecast for this location!” is all I get when I ask.
What a disappointment!
HELP PLEASE says
ANYONE KNOW WHY SIRI DOESN’T SHOW UP IN SETTIGS>GENERAL!?!? I put in the proxy sever and got the certificate but when I hold home it goes to voice command. PLEASE
Just fixed that no light issue, the URL in the proxy server didn’t have a / at the end, it also had a space at the start. It’s hard to notice so try retyping that
Amyann D says
the siri tab isn’t there when i go to toggle siri on
Siri does not work at all AFTER installing the certificate although I tried a reboot after the installation
How did you get it to work please help me did you follow the steps exactly like that or did you do something different? thank you.
Uninstalled and reinstalled spire several times to try and make this work, but like other people every time I immediately get “sorry I am unable to answer questions at this time please try again later”. I appreciate the effort but this needs to be debugged looking through the comments it seems to only work for a handfull of people and not for the majority.
Srikanth Raj says
does it work on ios 5.0.1 using an iphone 4?
This is bull shit , i4sri has been on my. Phone for almost a month now and all I get is “I can’t help you”
Akshay Guthal says
Hello. I followed the tutorial and installed Siri but whenever I ask it a question which requires the use of the wikipedia, wolfram alpha, weather, etc. plugins, it just says, “Nothing was found for your question!”. However, I know it works because when I say something general like “hello”, it responds normally. Is this a server issue?
it says not trusted
siri says cannot take any requests please try again later.
I wonder the same question
that shit doesn´nt work and don´t ask me if i turn it on and off again!!!! ;P
To enable Siri u need to download latest version of iPhone
yo mama says
