"Apple's iPhone 4 may not have the fancy dual core CPU of its successor, but thanks to the efforts of developer Steven Troughton-Smith and the folks at 9to5 Mac, it may soon have Siri. The port of the sultry voice assistant was accomplished by using the 4S Siri and Springboard files, and some serious elbow grease, no doubt. It is far from perfect, but it can recognize spoken commands without issue. Currently, the hack is missing an iPhone 4 GPU driver that keeps things running buttery smooth on the elder phone, and Cupertino won't authenticate Siri's commands coming from it either. So, it isn't quite ready for primetime, but it should only be a matter of time before all you iPhone 4 owners can tell Siri what to do, too."Source : Engaget

from what i read from online reports, apple is blocking requests from non-4s devices. and this is why this could turn out to be a failure. siri is an online service and apple can very well ensure that only 4S users are able to get responses from this app.

Oh. That sucks! But can't blame Apple. Siri is 4S's USP. Perhaps the online database of responses could be copied to another server? Or the Apple server spoofed into believing that the command is from a 4S? But both possibilities look grim.

Hope 4 users get some sort of Siri functionality with limited commands. Looking to hear from these devs soon!
