VoiceActivator–Popular Jailbreak Tweak Gets iOS 6 Support; Ability To Add Custom Voice Responses To Activator Actions

iOS jailbreak developer Grant Paul aka chpwn has released an update for VoiceActivator – one of the popular jailbreak tweaks to add support for iOS 6 or later.

The jailbreak tweak enhanced the Voice Control feature to allow iOS device users to launch apps, open URLs and also invoke Activator actions, which was pretty cool as it was released much before Apple released Siri.

To recap, VoiceActivator includes the following features:

  • Add new Voice Control commands!
    • Open apps, tweaks, and websites.
    • Change settings, system actions–so you can use voice commands to enable and disable Wi-Fi etc.
  • Easy to configure; quick to use.
  • Doesn’t remove built-in commands.

In addition to the support for iOS 6 or later, VoiceActivator 1.2.1-2 also comes with a major new feature. It allows you to configure custom voice responses to any Activator action. So you can configure VoiceActivator to get a voice response for things like percentage of battery charge, the date etc. You can configure custom voice responses using text and variable such as $BATTERY for percentage of battery charge etc.

You can check out the demo of the jailbreak tweak in action below:

VoiceActivator’s custom voice response feature adds a whole new dimension to Activator – one of our favorite jailbreak tweaks. If you’ve an non-Siri device, then you’ll find VoiceActivator even more useful.

VoiceActivator is available on Cydia for $2.99, so check it out and let us know what you think in the comments below.

      It was compatible with iOS 5.x, the developer has added support for iOS 6/iOS 6.0.1.

      It supports iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, and iPod touch 3G.

    My 4s running 5.1.1 ran VoiceActivator without a hitch. Turning Location Services, Airblue, Wi-Fi, Data, etc. on and off handsfree was a really great thing!

    Now that I’ve ‘upgraded’ to 6.1 and jailbroke again, it’s NOT COMPATIBLE!

    I wish to voice command my iphone 4s via bluetooth headset to open camera and start/stop recording video. What can I use to accomplish this?
