    Hey everyone.

    I want to disable that stupid Voice Control feature. I never use it, and its annoying with the phone in your pocket. I don't want anything to happen when you push/hold the home button.

    So I was going to SSH into the phone, modify the plist to disable voice control, and be happy.

    But, I don't want my phone jailbroken (because I want to be able to shut down the phone and be able to restart it without having to be connected to a computer).

    So if I jailbreak, modify the plist, then restore, will the plist revert back to it's original state?

    I imagine there is no way to do a backup, then edit the plist within the backup, then restore to that modified backup?

    Any help would be great!

    I'd also like to enable SIRI, but I'll worry about that later I think.

    iBackupBot will let you do that, without the need to jailbreak.

    The Voice Control isn't settable via a backup. To change it you must jailbreak. But the only way to unjailbreak is to restore the iPhone.

    OK. I stand corrected.
    But iBackupBot is still great for editing other plist (preferences) files! :cool:

    I guess I'll just wait for the untethered iOS5 Jailbreak.

    I'll need to JB in order to port Siri over, anyway, so I guess it's no big deal.

    Siri is not working at the moment, couple of people that got it working are not sharing everything you need to do.. if you do some reading you can learn more.. ;)

    I did do some additional reading after posting, and it seems like a port to the iP4 is not quite ready.

    Bummer.

    I'll still probably JB when an untethered iOS5 break comes out. At least so I can disable Voice Control, if nothing else.

    Enabling the hidden panorama mode or the auto-correct/suggestion keyboard.
    Worthwhile? Probably not! :D

    Other than that, the app is great when you want to setup your iPhone as new and not restore from backup, but still have some specific things from an old backup that you'd like to transfer over.

    I'd say just sell the i4 and get a 4s would be simpler. That way both problems solved.

    Fair enough suggestion. I don't think the market is ripe for a Verizon iP4, though even though it's a 32GB.

    Chances are, I'll just keep it until the redesign comes out. When that happens, I'll be eligible for upgrade and I'll get it. Until then, I'll probably just JB and play around with different themes and such. I might get my wife a 4S if she wants to switch from the Android camp.
