Use Siri to Update Facebook and Twitter on iPhone 4S (No Jailbreak)

Siri has been receiving lots of attention lately from iPhone 4S owners looking to expand her capabilities. There are more tweaks and customizations arriving every day from developers in the jailbreak community. Of course, there are still things you can teach Siri to do without jailbreaking your iPhone 4S.

Siri iPhone tips and tricks

Although Apple has not included support for Siri to update social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, you can easily set up your iPhone 4S to make this possible. Siri will then take your commands and upload the message directly to your account. The same trick can even be used to let Siri update Google+ as well.

Untether Your iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak With Corona

Chronic Dev Team has released a jailbreak tool on the Cydia app store for those who have already installed a tethered jailbreak on their iOS 5.0.1 devices. Using this tool, called Corona 5.0.1 Untether will modify your iPhone with the same exploits used in redsn0w. Unlike the redsn0w jailbreak process, Corona requires no computer to untether a jailbroken device.

Corona 5.0.1 Untether

In order to successfully install Corona, your iOS device must already have a tethered jailbreak installed along with iOS 5.0.1. Do not use Corona if you're using a hybrid iOS 5.0/5.0.1 jailbreak! This requires installing and running redsn0w after a clean restore to stock iOS 5.0.1.

iPhone 4 Jailbreak Instructions (iOS 5.0.1 Redsn0w)

Thanks to pod2g and the iPhone Dev-Team it's now possible to jailbreak the iPhone 4 and all models of the Phone 3GS untethered. Although iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners are still waiting for an A5 jailbreak, all iOS devices running iOS 5.0.1 with A4 hardware can now be jailbroken untethered. This includes the original iPad, iPod touch 3G and iPod touch 4G.
