Install Siri on iPad 2 on iOS 5.1.1

Jealous of your friends with their iPhone 4S’s and their personal assistant Siri? Completely understandable, the girl is quite the handy assistant and quite the conversationalist, I hear. Well, even though Apple doesn’t want you to have Siri on your iPhone (they’d rather you buy the new iPhone instead) doesn’t mean, thanks to some dedicated third-party developers, you can’t have her as well. Here’s how to get Siri on the Apple iPad 2 on iOs 5.1.1

7. Click Add Anyway.


III. Install Siri on Your Device.

1. Once that is done, head to search and search for “Spite”.

2. Find the one called Spite 3.0.1-1 (Untethered), click on it.

3. Click Install in the top right corner. (This will take a good 15-20 minutes so be patient and be connected to WIfi beforehand).

4. Once done, click Reboot Device.

6. Head to Cydia.

V Troubleshooting

If Siri doesn’t work right away, try going back into the SiriServer in Settings and clicking on the Update Server button, then Start Server and wait 10 seconds for it to start up. Then try to use Siri again.

  1. Thank you for these useful information,
    Siri application has lots of benefits like for example playing music in the car, for example, it is much easier and safer with Siri to play the role of your personal DJ, Simply tell siri to “play 'Mickey Mouse Clubhouse'" or "play some pop songs" you will get the music quickly, even if the phone was locked, and without choosing between long lists of artists, playlists and albums. You can also use siri as a calculator by being able to determine appropriate tip amounts, convert measurements, and perform complex mathematical formulas.
