According to the latest reports, it is now possible to install Siri on iPad 2. This has been made possible by the newly released Greenpois0n Absinthe jailbreak. A tutorial, along with a video, has been provided below to help set up the popular voice-activated personal assistant on the device.
However, it should be noted before proceeding that the process is not particularly easy. The first step is to set up the SiriProxy Server and edit the iPad's file system, which can be tricky. Moreover, the iPad 2 must already be jailbroken in order for this to work.
Here are the steps to install Siri on your iPad 2:
Step 1: First, jailbreak the iPad 2 on iOS 5.0.1. Scroll down and check out the second video for a guide on jailbreaking.
Step 2: Next, install Spire on the iPad 2. You will need to open Cydia and search for Spire. Remember that installing Spire changes the iPad into an iPhone mode, which can make the screen look a little different; some reports used the word funky. However, a quick respiring can fix this problem.
Step 3: Download iFile from Cydia and install that. Next, open the app and navigate to - System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/. Now tap open the K.plist file (K93AP.plist, K94AP.plist, etc) using the Property List Viewer.
Then tap and open Capabilities and scroll down until you see a toggle for iPad. Switch it Off and tap Done.
Restart the iPad.
Once restarted, head back to - /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/ using iFile. Once insdie, tap open the K.plist file (K93AP.plist, K94AP.plist, etc) with the Property List Viewer.
Tap Capabilities and scroll down until you see a toggle for iPad. Switch it Off and tap Done. Exit iFile.
Step 4: Next, download and install Dropbox. Log in and download the ca.pem file which should already be there. Select, copy and paste the link from the Safari Browser in your iDevice. Select Install and tap Done.
Step 5: Now open iFile again and go to - /etc/ and tap Hosts and choose Text Viewer. Tap on Edit in the upper left-hand corner and add the below-mentioned line there:
When this is done, tap on Save and then tap Done.
Step 6: When this is done, open the Settings app and go to General -> Siri. Enable Siri.
Step 7: Open Settings again and select Spire, found under Extensions. Type the following in the Proxy Host field:
Step 8: Open iFile and go to - /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/. Now tap and open com.apple.assistant.plist. When this is done, tap on Accounts and choose your hex key (which is a random alphanumeric value) and add the following three fields using the + sign in the bottom right hand corner. The three fields are Ace Host, Assistant Identifier and Speech Identifier. Next, tap on Done.
Step 9: Then open Settings -> Wifi and select the right blue arrow matching your Wi-Fi connection. Here, you will have to change the DNS field to the IP address of your Siri Proxy Server.
Step 10: Lastly, exit Settings and test Siri by pressing and holding the Home button. You should also be able to see the feedback in the terminal window of the Ubuntu server, similar to what you did when you ran Siri Proxy on iPhone 4S or the iPhone.
Remember you can also add and install a host of cool plug-ins such as Hands-Free Control or SiriToggles, as they both work well on the iPad 2.
If you ran all the above mentioned steps, then you have successfully installed Siri on your iPad 2.
