    I have lost siri. Do I need to perform a factory restore or is there any possible way to restore siri?


    Long story short:
    Installed technetec siri mic color change. Didn't like it so I removed it, but siri kept crashing upon activation. So I reinstalled blue mic color.

    Someone recommended I install spire. I did, but it was asking for a proxy server addy to connect to. I removed spire, now siri is gone. When activated all I get is voice control. Siri is not found in my settings either.

    You got a 4s, you don't need Spire, that is to get Siri on none 4S devices, Now the reason that it may be gone is because the installer remove all the files thinking are were on a none 4S device (this is just a educated guess, I could be wrong). your best bet is to backup your phone, restore using Itunes and then re-jailbreak.

    Yep, sounds like restore is all you can do at this point.

    Figured id be going down that route lol.


    ps DO NOT install technetec siri mic color change if you plan to go back to the default purple mic color.

    Don't restore just yet.

    I haven't hacked my phone but I know that Siri gets "disabled" in the settings once you've restored.

    You just need to turn it back on....

    Settings > General > Siri

    Hmm I didn't think removing it caused that problem? I installed it but won't risk uninstalling to find out :p

    But you should be able to just SSH the files back to the bundled locations per the winter board theme.

    I believed OP said that the "option" itself was gone.

    I would NOT recommend manually copying the file, we don't have a full structure of what was remove, it is way safer just to restore, it won't lose anything and it will guarantee stability

    I hope it didn't came out like I was personally attacking you or your post, OP got a 4S with default Siri support, no reason to mess around with files, those with iP4 or before are the one that should mess around until everything is broken before restoring. :)

    Yikes.....

    Add that tweak/app to the list of DO NOT INSTALL ON 4S.

    Remember that once apple stops signing the 5.0.1 ipsw you won't be able to jailbreak. So you might want to limit the experimenting you are doing with your device.....

    :cool: let us know if you are back to normal once you do your restore.....

    Im not sure if they updated the package, but after I uninstalled it, siri would crash upon activation. Another user posted about this as well.

    Anyways im back up and running good again.

    im having exact same problem for about 3 days. I did a restore to earlier date in iTunes on my jailBROKE Iphone 5 and it restored fine. But STILL no Siri. Also in settings under general-cellular-cellular data network all of the APN's have the word "phone" typed in. Also below in the mms part it has proxy.mobile.att.net typed in. If anyone can help I would be sooo grateful.

    I wanted Siri on the iPhone 4 I once owned because Apple said I couldn't have it and wouldn't work properly.

    :)
