A couple of days ago a developer named Eric Day developed an application that brings Siri dictation to older iOS devices running the iOS 5 firmware. Even though it has been removed from the Cydia Store due to Nuance, the company that makes the voice recognition technology in Siri0us, who refused to sell a license to use its offerings in the program. If you are interested, you can still download the Siri0us Cydia tweak from the following source:
Note: Like adding any other source in Cydia, go to the manage tab. Press Sources, then press Edit on the right and Add on the left corner. Then Enter apt.if0rce.com . Note that the “o” in if0rce, is a “0” (the number zero).
Once Cydia has reloaded the sources. Go into the apt.if0rce.com source, scroll to the bottom and you should find Siri0us. Install it now.
After you respring your device you should see a Siri microphone icon on your keyboard. Press it, wait for a second, then speak to it. Sir0us uses the same technology used in the actual Siri in the iPhone 4S.
Warning: If your device gets into a respring loop, DO NOT restore! Use iFunBox/iPhone Explorer/SSH to remove /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AssistantServices.framework from your device.
NOTE: You might have to remove any previous useless Siri GUI port.
According to which is the developer’s website it supports the following languages.
中文/国語(中国) 中文/國語(台灣) English (United States) Deutsch (Europa) English (United Kingdom) Français (Europe) Italiano (Europa) 日本語 한국어More languages to come in future releases: 中文/廣東話 中文/國語(台灣) Deutsch (Europa) English (Australia) English (United Kingdom) English (United States) Español (Europa) Español (Américas) Français (Canada) Français (Europe) Italiano (Europa) 日本語 한국어 中文/国語(中国) Dansk Suomi Magyar Nederlands (Europa) Norsk Polski Português (Brasil) Português (Europa) Русский Svenska
Lets all hope that Eric Day will be able to keep Siri0us alive for us. Siri0us is really good!
Update #1: The Siri0us Cydia package was removed from the repo mentioned in this article. You will need to add the following repo http://smolk.myrepospace.com/ instead to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Mathias Erik Hellman says
It works really good but, when you try 2 open the keyboards within apps like facebook and such, the app crashes.. It works with texting and searching on google and stuff, but when you open up a app that you downloaded from the appstore, then open up the keyboard within for instance facebook, the App crashes because of this, so I hope the creater of this tweak will fix this with an update and I’m warning people that if you install it, it is a risk that non-native apps will crash when you open up the Keyboard within it, anyone else got the same problem? Thx for now.
Darren Phillips-Boyd says

Kirk perrin says
Package has been removed from the updated repo as well
The tweak is still there and works perfectly
Does this work with H1Siri?
damn…removed from the new repo. anyone got any new ones?
@Mathias Erik Hellman that is exactly what is happening to me. I had it working before but now when i download it then go on a keyboard on any regular app it crashes don’t kno why. works on like some apps but for example notes or installous it causes the app to crash
Here’s the fix. First remove Siri0us completely and respring. Then goto your general settings and select “Reset All Settings” let it reboot on its own. When that’s finished, turn the phone off and reboot tethered using redsn0w or whichever tool you used to boot tethered. Then re-install Siri0us from the Xsellize repo. This fixes it trust me! I was banging my head trying to figure this out and it has something to with core settings.
Notes, Safari, Facebook etc APP CRASHES SOLVED FOR SIRI0US !!
