    How to enable voice control on your iPad

    MAC

    Make sure you have afc2add installed from cydia or rock. SSH into your device or use your favorite USB browser.
    1. Navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    2. Open K48AP.plist in a text editor or a plist editor
    3. Under the capabilities area add the following key:
      <key>voice-control</key>
      <true/>

    4. Reboot your iPad and enjoy Voice Control!

    Windows
    1. For Windows users, you’ll need a software like WINSCP and for Mac you can use Cyberduck.
    2. Install OpenSSH on your iPad using Cydia. Open up Cydia and search for it. You’ll have to restart your iPad after that.
    3. Now use the following settings to log into your iPad: IP address of your iPad and user name: root and password: alpine and protocol: SCP
    4. Navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    5. Open K48AP.plist in a text editor or a plist editor
    6. Under the capabilities area add the following key:
      <key>voice-control</key>
      <true/>

    7. Reboot your iPad and enjoy Voice Control!

    Just tried this. It works!! Ha. Who knew.

    I'm using the backgrounder on the home button, so i have to press the home button for like 3-4s to activate it (looong time). I'm trying to use activator now to change this, but it does not seem to work. Do I need to respring? I try rebooting, lock screen, swipe from bottom of the screen to activate voice, but it didn't work.

    I'm going to assign something else to backgrounder instead and use home button for now.

    This works even if the iPad is in a sleep state (locked). Just press home button and it will turn on a blue screen displaying some possible commands. Wait for the beep and speak. Great as far as it goes.

    No Nav or app control though. Why not, Apple?

    You're kidding? I think it works pretty good. Play artist xxx can be complicated, specially if you have odd names in your library (tiesto, husker du, I can't even type them on the iPad right now...). But play/pause/next, never missed once so far. Play playlist ... Also no problems...

    If you plan to use your iPad in a car, this is a must have.
