How to install Siri Dictation on the iPhone 4

Siri is currently an iPhone 4S only feature (The iPad 2 users don’t even have access!). Well my question is, why do we have to pay $600+ for a new phone when you can just install it on your old iPhone 4? With that question in mind I decided to help you all, by showing you how to get Siri dictation on your old iPhone 4.

You will need a jailbroken iPhone 4 (Click me for directions on how to jailbreak (only a tethered jailbreak right now).


  1. Open Cydia on your iPhone.
  2. Go to: Manage->Sources->Edit->Add.
  3. Type in “” and click “Add Source” (if that doesn’t work try “”).
  4. Wait for Cydia to update the sources (this may take a while, so be patient).
  5. Search and install the app “Siri0us”
  6. Restart springboard and finished

UPDATE: Added Ty‘s video to this post, I figured it could help some of you.
