    Hey,

    is there a way of disabling the voice control feature on the iPhone 4? I'm using the "hold the home button" action for something else by way of Activator and it's annoying that if I hold it a little too long it'll launch voice control.

    Thanks!

    I don't think there is an "official" way to do that, you can disable voice dialing, but that's about it (Settings>General>Passcode Lock>Voice dial), all other voice control will still pop up when holding the Home button.

    i hear ya.....

    i got my springflash(LED camera flash light) to turn on using home button hold activation.....and if hold it alittle too long it brings up voice control...lol

    i usually just hold it a second or so and my light will come on before the VC does most times.

    The package to do this is called, surprisingly enough, Disable Voice Control. I've tested it on my wife's phone (she has the Switcheasy Colors case with the raised home button, so turns on voice control every other time she puts it in her purse), and it works great.

    Just checked it out it sucks that it's a winterboard add on I would be interested in it if it was standalone kinda like the one that disables

    Works on iPhone 4 running 4.1, however im not sure what the first part of the video was talking about when he was deleting a file... I only edited the .plist and it worked.

    i was also able to disable voice control on by 3GS just by editing the plist. i didnt delete anything as well.

    what kind of speed improvement are we talking about with disabling VC?

    i wonder if not deleting that specific file wont show any speed improvements. has anyone seen any improvements with just editing the plist and not deleting the daemon file?

    So i didnt delete the file, but i renamed it it to 'com.springboard.scrod.plist.bak' Rebooted my phone, not sure if i can say my phone feels faster, maybe its a placebo effect but the graphics seemed smoother.

    aww

    neither the cydia tweak or the video helped, apple may've fixed that in ipod touch 4. :'(
    waiting for a 5.2 jailbreak(hoping that apple puts a disable voice control option) so my siri works without it being in mobile substrate safe mode.
