Since the first time Siri released, Apple only allows Siri to be exclusively accssible on the iPhone 4S. But as you may know, lots of iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, as well as iPad and iPod Touch users really wish to install siri on their own device , without having to have an iPhone 4S device. Of course, if Siri is the only reason to buy the iPhone 4S, that would really be an unwise decision.
Great news for those who had jailbreak their devices already, without having to have an iPhone 4S, you too can install and use the Siri on the iPhone 2G/3G/3GS/iPhone 4, iPod Touch 2G/3G/4G, and also iPad 1 & iPad 2.
Because of the jailbreak, you could have Siri application, or maybe the one similar to Siri it installed on your device. Some Cydia tweaks allow you to enjoy the features of the Siri assistant. Some of these apps only supports the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G, while others may support all versions of iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
Listed below are some Cydia tweaks you should consider to be installed on iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad you if you wish to have Siri Assistant:
Spire is a simple installer for Siri on any iPhone or iPod on iOS 5.0. Spire downloads and installs a copy of the Siri frameworks and resources. On the iPhone 4S, it allows configuring a proxy easily. Spire developed by chpwn along with Ryan Petrich.
Spire cydia tweak let you install Siri on iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS/iPhone 3G/iPhone 2G, iPod Touch 2G/iPod Touch 3G/iPod Touch 4G, but you will need a working Siri / Spire proxy to get it work. Without proxy, Siri will not work.

- Sara, the clone of Siri
Sara, a clone of Siri with more advanced features.
Sara is actually an open virtual assistant like Siri (Siri clone) and it was claimed for being the most effective and most innovative Siri clones currently. It’s not just accurate, but also offers more functions than Siri. It is simply open virtual assistant like Siri, with many advanced features Siri doesn’t have.
The best alternative so far if you can’t get Siri working with any proxies.
A new jailbreak app called AssistantConnect promises to bring Siri to iPhone 4 without proxy in colaboration with Spire. Unlike previous ports, AssistantConnect allows you to email your Siri data between jailbroken iOS devices to enable Siri assistant. You will need to “Email Siri Data” button in iPhone 4S with AssistantConnect4S installed in order to let non-iPhone 4S device able to use Siri.
