How to install the new Google Now virtual concierge in Android Jelly Bean on your rooted CM9 device

0. phoneArena 04 Jul 2012, 02:47 posted on

If you have been jelly that only a handful of devices are able to take advantage of Google Now in Jelly Bean, now you will have something to celebrate, as the service has just been ported to rooted Android ICS phones, running AOSP ROMs like the ultra-popular CyanogenMod 9. Unfortunately, that cool new Google Voice Search hasn't been ported yet, as it is an integrated part of Jelly Bean...

are you rooted.?

did you install it as a system app
did you rename google search
did you change sdk back to 15
did you change the permissions correctly
do you have cm9, or aokp or anything based on asop?

its still probably you

i use root explorer

did you mount system? you need to mount system before you edit it
and you need to open in text editor and press save

works for me, voice just doesn't work

It worked for me, but sadly there is a lot of bugs.. I can have cards and stuff, but intermittently, the search function freezes and i can't make any search.. But it works nonetheless.. Just need some more works/optimisations, I think.. I reverted back to my old search box already, since I don't think I will use the cards often.. I don't even use weather app on my device.. HTC Desire S running IceColdSandwich v8.2.1 with Linaro AOKP ROM.. (oh, yeah, that Linaro makes it real fast!)
