iPhone 4 Siri Port Now Legally Possible Thanks To The New iOS 5.0.1 Release

The upcoming few days will be full of good news in the jailbreak community, starting from pod2g’s jailbreak news which we brought today and yesterday. The well-known iPhone hacker pod2g could test the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak on all A4 devices and it will be released in few days. However, iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreaks are not yet tested.

More news comes today; Apple couple of hours ago released a new version of iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S build 9A406. This new iOS 5.0.1 build makes a lot of things possible.

Siri Port iPhone 4

According to the iPhone Dev Team’s brain member, MuscleNerd, iOS 5.0.1r2 (build 9A406) features decrypted ramdisks.

What does this mean?

To clarify this, with the new decrypted ramdisks in iOS 5.0.1, it’s now possible to write a simple script to legally extract the needed files from iOS 5.0.1 for Siri port on iPhone 4 and older devices.
The download is now publicly available on Apple’s servers so Siri port on all older devices is totally legal.
We’ve previously told you that Siri could be ported on all devices including the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS but the problem was in connectivity. Starting from now, hackers should just write simple scripts to extracts the necessary files needed for a Siri port.
We’ll surely keep you update but you can, as always, leave your mail here so that we send you the “most” important news about Siri port and iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak.
