Siri is an intelligent software assistant and knowledge navigator functioning as a personal assistant application for iOS. The application uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of web services. Siri claims that the software adapts to the user’s individual preferences over time and personalizes results, as well as accomplishing tasks such as making dinner reservations and reserving a cab.
But iPhone jailbreakers should stay away from the latest Siri port, H1 Siri, which brings Apple’s digital assistant to the iPhone 4S. There is a Chinese hackers’ team, they intended to run a small test, but the code was leaked. And now their servers can’t keep up with the demand.
Beyond the server unresponsiveness, there are also other reasons to skip this hack. It seems to break phones and involves running illegal code.
After the tests with H1 Siri failed, there are advices on Grant Paul’s blog which suggested people should be wary of this new port. If you use a proxy to access Siri, it may give the software creators access to your personal data. E-mail, SMS, Calendar, Contacts, Locations, etc may be sent through that server.
Different complaints came out from those early adopters after installation. Such as it was said to cause random reboots, break the camera, brick the phone, mess up setting apps, etc.
Siri is cool, but be careful. It is not worth all this.
