However it's not extinguished the fire, all of the sudden a hacker, Ryan Petrich, successfully run Siri on iPhone 3Gs and posted a demo video in Youtube, but people tend to doubt it really is a 3Gs.
We are still and continually presented with the tweaks, and the techniques to get this voice assistant app to the devices older than A5-powered phone, the recent attempt was a SiriOus from Cydia. So far, YES! We get the intelligent software assistant like Siri. Some of us are satisfied, the rest keep tweaking.
Now we are offered with another feature-packed Siri-like personal assistant, that is recently introduced in Cydia, ESRA, Experimental Speech Response Application. The abbreviation is quite self-explanatory. In other words don't expect too much from this app, let alone bringing the magical assistants Siri offers. But it is understandable due to its early development and it would be unfair to compare this Cydia tweak with the full-fledged Siri.
ESRA is developed by Guillermo Moran and is actively updating it on-the-go. It may have several issues to begin with depending upon various factors including server load, libraries etc. Guillermo Moran is the ESRA developer and currently working of his best to improve his project to be the most of it. And can be a good start to be a Siri alternative on the store.
