We’ve all been waiting for Siri to finally come and reach us on the iPhone 4. Consistent updates from the Dev Team told us of successful porting to iPod Touch 4G and then onto iPhone 4 and iPad, where it appeared to be running smoothly. The only problem at this point was connecting to Apple’s servers but then we received the all important tweet stating that the Dev’s had finally connected to servers…. So where is Siri now? And why don’t we have it up and running on our iDevices?
Chpwn explained today in a blog that it comes down to copyright laws and that porting to Siri’s server’s would be a blatant and obvious breach of these laws. He stated.
“..the firmware files are distributed encrypted, and we do not yet have the decryption key to access the Siri files inside of the iPhone 4S firmware file.Just from that, you currently must already own an iPhone 4S to install Siri on it without a blatant copyright violation. But even that’s not all: if you do all of that, there’s still a few more reasons why Siri won’t just work.”
It looks like we’re all going to have to wait a little while longer on this one, as until the decryption keys are found to the IPSW files then there’s not going to be a public release of the Siri ports.
