Enable Voice Control on iPhone 2G 3G

When Apple launched Voice Control for iPhone 3GS, it left lots of previous generation owners thirsty. The reason being feature enables users to make phone calls and play music by using voice commands.

Did you the rising demand, we developers played around to get a hacked app  that is a look-alike app for iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G which works and looks almost exactly as it is on iPhone 3GS.

You will need to have an unlocked and jailbroken iPhone for this to work. Pre-requisites:

Download WinSCP for Windows
Download CyberDuck for Mac
Download VoiceControl (zip) for iPhone 2G and 3G


Step 1: Install OpenSSH via Cydia if you haven’t already

Step 1: Open WinSCP or Cyberduck  and enter the following details to login to your phone:

  • Hostname: The IP address — Setting –> WiFi –> <Netowork>
  • User name: root
  • Password: alpine

Step 3: Unzip VoiceControl.zip and copy it to your iPhone in the /<root>/Applications directory.

Right-click on directory Voice Control.app >> Properties and change the permission to 755 while keeping “Set group, owner and permissions recursively” option selected

You are done! After the restart, you should now have a new app named “Voice Control” on your springboard. Start this new application on your iPhone 3G or 2G and simply search through your contacts, music and bookmarks by using voice commands just like iPhone 3GS!

    • Permissions might not have been set correctly. “Set group, owner and permissions recursively”

    i've tried all i can think of, but i can't even get the icon to show up in springboard… cyberduck has no “properties”, you right click for info, and you can't change the 755, but it's already there… so what can it be?

    I've followed all the steps above in a 2G iPhone. The application was installed and its iicon is the screen, however it doesn't work. When I press the icon, it starts, flashes the screen and return to the main stream and no voice command is activated

    my wifi died a while back, and believe me, i've tried EVERYTHING. so now i'm using DiskAid to transfer files, but it has no option to set permissions. i got the app in, but it just closes after a flash. i know i need to set permissions, but i can't with my current setup. any suggestions? i'm stuck with doing things only through the iphone (MobileTerminal) or over usb. no wifi

Any Suggestions? Oh, And I'm On A JB 2g 3.1.2. Thanks In Advance

    Is there any way you can get this working so that when you hold down the button on a bluetooth headset it launches the voice control app? (I use the Plantronics Discovery 975)

    Thanks in advance,
    Zac

    While I got the Voice Control app to show up and running on iphone 2G with 3.1.3 firmware, the accuracy is HORRENDOUS. I also have an iphone 4 and I don't have a problem finding address book entries.

    BTW, what is the __MACOSX directory for, and where should those go to? I put the whole directory under /Applications, but not sure if that is the right place. The app itself didn't have any complaints.
