Jailbreaking changes everything about your device. It gives you more control and access on your device, You are provided with an open resource App Store we call it as Cydia in which you can have multiple tweaks and apps available developed by non official developers. It brings a whole new range of apps which brings more customization to your device.
Apple launched the iOS 5 in the last quarter of 2011 along with the next step generation of iPhone which is iPhone 4S. The device had some good enhanced features but almost it was like iPhone 4. Apple marketed the smartphone on only one feature which is the personal voice assistant. Yes we are talking about Siri and we all know the capabilities and extra ordinary functionality it brings to your device.
Jailbreaking has made many things available to the personal assistant. It is only dedicated to iPhone 4S and non other device can have it, but hackers have developed many successful ports of Siri to the devices other than iPhone 4S. Obviously they do not work at their best because Apple servers are not behind it. If you remember s hacker taken the functionality to this level that he locked and unlocked his car by just saying Siri to do so. This is just awesome and now there is another thing.
Have you noticed that the microphone that appears when Siri is evoked is Purple in color? You can now change it and select the color of your own choice. This is where we say Jailbraking gives you more customization. Yes you can now change the color of your Siri but you will need a jailbroken device. As iPhone 4S has the fully functional Siri and there is not any jailbreak that is available for iPHone 4S, but nothing to worry as the jailbreak untethered for iOS 5.0.1 is near for A5 devices. For all A4 devices, if you want to change the color of the mic of Siri, follow these simple steps.
