    I've noticed that since I jailbroke my iPhone 6 that Hey Siri no longer works. I've tried rebooting and toggling it on and off. I couldn't find a topic about this. Are there any tweaks known to cause this issue?

    Are you using Pangu or Taig? Not trying to sound condescending, but some may not know that stock Hey Siri only works while charging (my friend couldn't figure out why Hey Siri worked plugged up to her car but not unplugged at work).

    I use UntetheredSiri from cydia, works great and you dont have to be plugged in for it to work.

    i hate how if you say "serious" siri activates. literally every time i have my phone plugged in and i say anything close to siri, it activates, so annoying.

    Figures it would be.
    Its sitting there activated and listening 24/7 for a command.
    There's a reason Apple made it available only when plugged in.
    There's trade offs with everything and on this one its not worth it in my opinion.

    I removed it after a couple days due to poor battery life. Was eating up my battery in a few hours.

    Check your battery usage stats. With the tweak installed, the usage and standby times were the same. Not good.

    I used Pangu, and I am aware that the phone must be plugged in. I do not want to use UntetheredSiri because of battery issues. I just want to use it while it's plugged in.
