You need the gel launcher installed then delete Google search and the 3.1.8 update will install. I just checked my version and its 3.1.24 why do you want to install an older version.

I thought 3.1.8 is a newer version than 3.1.24. And do we have the full Google experience now?

Its not newer 24 is higher than 8 and I installed the 3.1.8 and was prompted to update to the version I already had. The only thing we don't have is the Google dialer 100%. Its damn close accept your calls are routed through the stock dialer and the caller I'd doesn't work for non contacts.

Not a lot you can do without root to be honest. The google dialer needs root to be installed you have to put it into a system folder. However on google play there is a KK dialer that is identical to the one we can install just not having all the neat caller id and search features. the GEL launcher you should be able to install without root i think.
