How To: Port Siri (GUI) On iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1G Running iOS 5 Firmware

Earlier today we told you that a developer posted files to port the Siri GUI to the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. These files contained everything necessary to get Siri’s GUI functioning on unsupported iDevices. The only aspect of this port that does not work is actually the ability talk to Siri; this is because Siri can not yet contact Apple’s servers. As Siri cannot currently contact Apple’s servers why would one go to the trouble of installing it?

Well the developer who released these files claimed that there were some files included he would not show us how to get functioning at this time. It is in my opinion that these files may contain the key to getting Siri to contact Apple’s servers. Even if I am not right about these files, once you install the GUI to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, all it takes is another developer to release the activation files and you will have already done a brunt of the work to get Siri fully functioning on your iDevice.

If you are ever going to be interested in porting Siri to your:

  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPod Touch 4G
  • iPad 1G

We suggest following this how to guide on installing the Siri GUI files to your unsupported Apple iDevices. That way you will be prepared for when an activation method has been found, and it will be an easy task to get Siri fully functioning.

How To Install Siri On iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad

Before you start this how to guide you will need to download the following:

  • Siri GUI files
  • AssistantServices.framework file (Try this if the one downloaded with the Siri GUI files did not work)
  • iExplorer (Apple iOS File Manager For Mac OS X and Windows)

Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is update to the iOS 5 firmware and then Jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running the iOS 5 firmware.

Step 2) – The next thing you will need to do is open iExplorer and navigate to the following directory:

/Root Directory/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/

Once in the directory you will need to transfer the AssistantServices.framework folder into the directory specified above.

Step 3) – You will now need to navigate to the following directory:

/Root Directory/System/Library/CoreServices/

Once inside the directory you will need to transfer the contents of the SpringBoard_Assistant_pics folders into the above directory.

Step 4) – The next thing you will need to do is edit the SpringBoard .plist file. It will be named N81AP for the fourth generation iPod touch and N9x for iPhone 4 (x may be 0, 1, 2 depending on whether you are installing Siri on an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4).

To edit this file you will need to drag it to your desktop and open the file in a text editor program. Once the file is open look for the following line:


Underneath that line you will need to add the following line:


Once the line has been added you will need to save the file and then transfer it back to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Note: An alternative method to manually editing the file on your computer would be to use an application like iFile.

Step 5) – Now you must simply restart your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Note: As you have a tethered Jailbreak you will need to boot your iDevice using RedSn0w (Mac/Windows).

Upon restarting your iDevice you can hold down the home button and you should notice Siri appears. Congratulations! You have just installed the Siri GUI on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. We will keep you updated when more information is discovered on how to enable Siri to contact Apple’s servers. Until that time enjoy showing off to your friends that you have Siri your iDevice.

UPDATE #1: Try this AssistantServices.framework file if the one downloaded with the Siri GUI files did not work.

  • CyCLoBoT

    I got Siri to come up but when I click on the Mic button, the blue light does not come on. I’m guess that’s normal for now until someone figures out how to enable it correct?

  • Bkoch66player14

    doesnt work still. boot loops and respring loops. kinda sucks. and i used the updates file.

  • Joseph Mikhail

    ok after the update it shows siri but even the regular voice control commands doesnt work as the button itself doesnt do anything when pressed :(

  • Hunt2013

    Does this disable real Voice Control? I have the GUI working but no beep for voice control and talking to it does nothing.

  • Hunt2013

    Does the normal Voice Control work as it should when using this?

  • Panamera

    Nope, installing the Siri GUI disables Voice Control.

  • Panamera


  • Panamera

    Installing the Siri GUI disables Voice Control.

  • Hackpro1989

    to fix the spring loop used iPhone Explorer or iFunBox to drag N88AP.plst backup file or removed the lines you added into the springboard folder overwriting the mod one and it should come back up Video Coming Soon

  • Cooperjazzy55

    Now my N88AP file looks complettely scrambled but looked fine before?

  • Andrew

    You are encountering Loop Boot because you messed up the springboard settings.
    Pay big attention to the syntax of the lines you are adding.

    For 3GS, edit the /System/Library/CoreServices/ via notepad or notepad++:
    Find this exact same line:

    And add right below it:

    For iPhone 4, look for the N9xAP.plist (don’t know the exact number, could be 90) and do the exact thing. Search for this lines:

    Add these lines below it :


    Then turn off phone, and Boot Tethered.

    Loop booting or stucking at the spinning wheel most likely means you messed up the springboard settings.

  • Andrew

    Freaking editor: make sure the is written as , don’t forget the /, write it without spaces.

  • Andrew

    I uploaded the files I used.
    Thing is, the site editor keeps resetting my syntax.
    You need to make sure there is a / at the end of the statement. Look for the syntax in the N88AP.plist to see what I mean.

  • Jameson

    Wow man, you are a freakin’ genius!!! Though I couldn’t say I can now use Siri on my iPod Touch 4G, at least, I already have it. I am totally gonna wait for your next update. Hopefully, we all get to use Siri on older iDevices defore the holidays come in. Thanks a lot dude.

    Thanks for any input… !!

    I’m pretty sure I followed all the directions as said above and when I hold down the home button, voice control continues to show up.  HELP!!!

    Worked perfectly on my 3GS!!!

    For all you people that don’t have the “720p” key on your 3GS, just type that in like this


    And it should work!

    I used Cyberduck on a Mac…. Now just 2 more things:

    1. UNTETHERED iOS5 Jailbreak (However, my 3GS has the old bootrom so its untethered)


  • Jessemarell

    can u tell me the solution if you learned

  • bwulff4

    Now all that happens is the black screen.  Has anyone been able to fix it?

  • Panamera

    This is just a port of the GUI, or Graphical User Interface; therefore voice recognition and all other features of Siri do not work in this port.

  • Panamera

    Everyone saying the Siri mic won’t work: this is simply a port of the Siri GUI (Graphical User Interface) which means only the images/animations are present in this port; voice recognition and all other features of Siri are not present in this port.

  • littlea

    lol guys its just the GUI for Siri, its far away from working… stay tuned

  • Elysium

    I too just have the mic icon – but nothing happens


    iBooty, use it to boot your self out of the Apple logo.
    You should know that iOS 5 is untethered unless you have old bb.

  • Kclbm4

    Yes use the N88 Plist.

    You would then need to enter 720p


    (Add the / after true, it won’t let me do that on this comment)

    Then it should work

    For Everyone That’s Having Respring Loops :
    The Modifications in N90AP.plist file Is Not Wrong
    Just go to AssistantServices.framework
    you will find info.plist and infoo.plist
    delete The infoo.plist and this should make siri GUI work like a charm but only GUI

  • J-City

    delete the infoo.plist file in AssistantServices.framework

  • Mxtime

    TO ALL IN A BOOT LOOP!!  move the AssistantServices.framework folder to AssistantServices.framework.BAK and create a new AssistantServices.framework folder with the new “updated” version.. If that still doesnt work copy the rest of the files back in from the original folder into the new one WITHOUT overwriting ANY of the files…
    Hope that helps…


    that’s because SIRI is yet to connect to apple servers. we all have to wait for hackers to update the siri to connect to apple servers version. this is only the GUI of siri

  • Richard

    shows up on my ipad after using the second file.. however, it looks like i’m looking at a picture and it doesn’t recognise my voice or have that purple line moving as i speak. also the siri icon disappears when touched. (on a ipad1) what gives? (imessage id : chaolan77 @ daum . net)

  • Richard

    same here.. no sound, nothing in settings either and also the siri icon disappears when
    touched. (on a ipad1) what gives? (imessage id : chaolan77 @ daum . net)

    Siri has been connected to the apple servers. The issue now is waiting for the files to be release to the public so we can add them to the GUI file

  • NintendoNaut

    Can someone please answer this question: Should there be an AssistantServices.framework file inside the AssistantUI.framework folder.  I think I might have added it by mistake but can’t be sure.

  • NintendoNaut

    Followed everything exactly, used the new framework file, and I still just get voice control.

  • sirloin34

    check the plist file, see if it’s put your in alphabetical like it did mine. i just get voice control.

  • NintendoNaut

    Well yeah it’s in A-Z order but that’s how it’s always been.  Look at the screenshot.  I’m lost at this point–I’ve followed everything and used the new file.  Look at the screenshot–He’s putting the AssistantServices.framework file into a different directory than he says in the text…Which one’s right?

  • sirloin34

    into the PrivateFrameworks i  guess, that’s where i put it, the plist file, he says put new text on line 9 and 10, when i save it goes to 23 and 34 even though i type in 9 and 10.

    Eh.  Over it.

     that is normal since this ported siri is just a User Interface(UI) that means it’s not connected to apple servers to answer your questions and it doesn’t function as of now..Let’s just wait for the hackers to release the files needed to be able to connect to the apple servers…

  • mhikez

    it is located in the

    use ifile to navigate and change something inside that N9x.plist ….

  • Svenii

    I finally got it to work on my iPhone 4 by deleting the whole assistantServicesframework folder Downloaded the one from the Update 1 AGAIN and copied it back into System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/  all while my phone was still stuck in the loop. I’m using WinSCP to edit my phone ;)

  • Josh

    UPDATE: it cant be done right now. the ipsw files are encrypted so there’s no way to copy siri onto older idevices RIGHT NOW…and theres the copywright problem, which shouldnt be that big of a deal because it would just be the person who put siri on their device’s fault. Siri should be on our devices around the time when the iPhone 4S jailbreak releases

    but WinSCP use wifi only rite?


    Why everybody and in all possible guides are advising to use iexplorer , Ifile etc for transfering files and editing the .plits file ??? To all of you – the easiest and fastest way is to use WinSCP (if you are on Windows , of course), both file transfer and editing of all file types is easy and quick …
    Regards to all


    Yes , only wi-fi but i do not quite agree with the word “only” :) – everywhere there is a wi-fi networks :)

  • Ambrose699

    Hi there, i am using Iphone 3gs jailbroken with semi-tethered and edited my N88AP.plist. I had successfully installed and added the folder/files using iexplorer as according to the steps posted here. After rebooted and try to use Siri using holding down the home button, siri microphone does appearred but it doesn’t hear any beep sound from my phone. Just wonder how does it work?. And also Siri doesn’t appear under iphone’s settings. Anybody can help ??

  • Josh

    Not online with servers. Just a nice look. I think it would be best to really look for FULL operation to be ready around the time the 4s public jailbreak comes out. Just  my opinion. Atleast you are some what there. Hopefully the update will come and you can add those files as well for it to work right.

  • Sheoques

    Hi guys, who can help me? I did everything but now my iPhone is not working. it seems that i lost the firmware.
    Please help me!!!!!!

  • Ambrose699

    Thanks mate, thats mean have to wait till it connect to the server then only SIRI could be function able in my phone? anyone out there successfully connected and SIRI being used in Iphone 3Gs or 4?

  • Josh

    I got the recovery loop when I did it wrong . Not sure if thats what you mean by lost firmware. Mine just kept beeping and spinning. In which case I did full recovery and used UPDATE #1: Try this AssistantServices.framework file if the one downloaded with the Siri GUI files did not work. Listed at the top. It stinks when you mess up but its great when it works sorry thats what I had to do.

  • Bryandonkey

    Got it all right..guess what my Siri was deaf 
    it won’t respond the mike sticks out of my iphone 4 and can’t hear a thing i say 

  • Jonathan Fernandez

    please send me your folder edited fo the installation siri  in my iphon 3gs siri not worked

  • Vignesh Muru

    It would take quite awhile as it requires an Iphone 4S validation token – Which requires a jailbroken iphone 4s (no public release available) and its a time consuming 20 step process to extract it. Still stroughton Smith or Chwkd arent going to release it because it would be an infringement of copyright, but im sure someone will write a tutorial after a iphone 4s untethered jailbreak is available. :)
