Hey Siri!

Getting hey Siri to work without a jailbreak may be possible. I am going to give it a shot. thanks to  NewtonSnoopin
Okay, First things first, I have no had sufficient time to test the battery life after doing this and I’m not responsible if you do something stupid to your iPhone or iPad or iPod. (If it works on iPad and iPods?) Anyways, You’ll need the following things:
  • An iPhone, iPod or iPad. (Running iOS 8.1 or Later)
  • iTunes. (Latest Version from Apples Website)
  • iBackupBot. (Latest Version from their site)
  • Lightning or 30pin cable. (To connect to your computer?)
  • Possibly a plist editor.
  1. Alright, First start by backing up your device to your computer making sure it is NOT an encrypted backup. (If it is it will not let you override files)
  2. Next go to “Settings – iCloud – Find my iPhone” and turn it off. (You’ll need to do this to restore from your backup later on.
  3. Open iBackupBot and select your device from the list on the left under “Backups”
  4. Navigate to “System Files – HomeDomain – Library – Preferences” and double click on “com.apple.voicetrigger.plist” and it should open a window and allow you to edit the file.
  5. In the file you will see:
Language Code en-CA Phrase Detector Enabled VoiceTrigger Enabled
  1. Right above “Language Code” add the following two lines.
Battery Power Allowed
And save your changes.
  1. Restore from your backup using iBackupBot.
  2. When your device boots it will walk you through a setup process just to update your iCloud settings and re-enable iMessage. Nothing has been removed or changed other than that file. Remove it from power and test, it should work if you’ve done it right, If not try again. To reverse the effects remove the line you inserted and restore from your backup again.
Also it's worth saying that anything that happens on your device AFTER your first backup will be removed once your restore from your backup. (Any texts, Notifications, Calls, etc)
