Default help: is it possible to update to 4.4.2 without updating the google search

Hi I have a unique issue I am trying to fix, I was wondering if someone with the know how can help me out. Here is my problem, when I update to the new 4.4.1 or 4.4.2 the google search also updates to the newer version. I dont have text messaging on my plan and used google voice to send the messages. When I would say OK Google text "blank" subject "blank" I could set it to use google voice as the default, so it would send using google voice. Now when I update to 4.4.1 or 4.4.2 google search updates as well, now when I say "ok google" text "blank" subject " blank" it only tries to send the text through my mobile number, and i get a reply text form tmobile telling me texting is blocked, because I blocked it, because I am cheap. This same thing happened when I was on 4.4 and I updated "google search" through play store, my solution before was just uninstalling the updates, but on 4.4.1 or 4.4.2 google search is defaulted to the newer version that doesnt work with google voice. I tried deleteing patch/system/app/Googlehome.apk.p from the 4.4.1 update file and then sideloading the update, but that didnt work. Just wondering if anyone can help me out .Thanks in advance for your time.
