"OK Google" hotword detection unavailable
Anyone know if it's this method in particular - or RW in general - that causes the "OK Google" hotword to become disabled altogether upon updating Google Search via the Play store?

If I upgrade to the latest version of Google Search (4.1.24.1672412.arm) and go to Google Now > Settings > Voice > "OK Google" Detection, it says "This feature is currently unavailable on this device" next to the "From the Google app" toggle. It works just fine if I uninstall updates (back to 3.1.24.941712.arm).

I've read about "OK Google Now" replacing just "OK Google", but that doesn't work, either.

Thoughts?

I can confirm that the "OK Google" detection is disabled. It's because it can conflict with Touchless Control, which does everything "OK Google" Detection does. Go to your main Android Settings > Touchless Control. Touchless Control has the advantage that the device does not need to be awake for the launch phrase to be detected. Otherwise, the features are identical.

Just a random interjection here w/ some info that might be of help...

I went through the steps in this guide to root, remove write protect, etc, a long while ago. Recently, I needed to revert to stock and accidentally flashed 4.2.2 instead of 4.4.2 and was left in a spot where rockmymoto wouldn't work because, I think, it saw that write protect was already disabled and didn't think it needed to do anything.

To regain root, I was able to run the sunshine tool and it re-rooted. I didn't need to actually use it to unlock anything, I just used it to re-root. Then I could reinstall TWRP and flash up to 4.4.2.

The rockmymoto thread was locked, last time I checked, but someone else there had this same prob. Good luck to all.
