Description

LEASE NOTE THAT VOICE SEARCH DOES NOT WORK AT THIS TIME, SO DONT ASK!

*DISCLAIMER* YOU MUST BE ON ANDROID 4.0 ICE CREAM SANDWICH FOR THIS TO WORK, DON’T TRY INSTALLING IT ON ANYTHING ELSE! *DISCLAIMER*

For those of you who are complaining of no cards showing up:
You Have to understand that Google Now works by gathering information about where you are, what you search for and the like OVER TIME. You simply cannot expect it to have all of the information you want a few minutes after you install, wait for a few days, just use the Google search like you would usually and it will start to fill in!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ok so I’m ready to take charge of this thread proper. Please be patient:

-So first and foremost, Not I, or anyone else is responsible to any damage you do to your device. You are renaming/modifying system files so if you screw it up you are RESPONSIBLE, NOT US.YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED . Follow the Instructions in this post and you should be fine.

-Second, thank you very much to all the kind people who are providing the modded .apks for us. I can’t account for every single person but thank you all for helping with the effort.

-Third, I will try to update this post as frequently as possible, but its so difficult to keep up with all the development as it moves quickly and its hard to pick up important info in the midst of all the questions. Any ‘info dumps’ in PM’s would be appreciated.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
UPDATE 7/6 @ 3:55 PM – Added new .apk and .zip which adds notifications and fixes the no results problem.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These are the current instructions and download:

1.) Rename GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk in system/app to GoogleQuickSearchBox.bak

2.) Rename the “signed_velvet-voicereco.apk” that you downloaded (link below) to: “GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk”

3.) Place the renamed .apk in the system/app folder and set the permissions to rw-r-r

4.) Reboot and enjoy!

OR

1.) Rename GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk in system/app to GoogleQuickSearchBox.bak

2.) Try to install the downloaded .apk off your sd just like any other .apk

OR

1.) Flash the .zip down below through recovery — AOSP ONLY
