Default Google now launcher

Hey Guys!! I am really happy to inform you that google now launcher is fully compatible with our galaxy grand quattro/win.. pls follow the below steps carefully and enjoy the google experience!

1. go to the link http://d-h.st/f6b and download launcher 4.4 .zip.

2. Now download 'libgoogle_recognizer_jni_l.zip' attached to this thread and extract it.

Copy the 'libgoogle_recognizer_jni_l.so' to system/lib in your mobile (since i use Jasp Next Level Rom, i made use of Root Browser in "ROM TOOLBOX LITE".)
overwrite the file if need be...

You can skip this step as i heard this is not necessary but i did follow it

3.Extract the launcher 4.4.zip...Now First install velvet.apk and then PrebuiltGmsCore.apk and lastly GoogleHome.apk.. dont worry if the google search force closes.. carry on..

4.Now after u install the GoogleHome, go to playstore and update ur google search and google playservices....

And thats it everything works perfectly!!

recognizer zip is not required at all.
Start with Google Search 3.2+, and Google Now Launcher initializes itself.
I've been using it since it first came out on nexus 5.

Pressing "THANKS" wouldn't cost you anything.

Of course it will. You don't have to feel like an idiot.

Its good but cant sort the apps in app drawer. ..... they are alphabetically arranged and its difficult to locate an app..

And one thing more is, there any screen lock app that resembles the google experience launcher style or nexus sty. ..?

No, icon arrangement in app drawer is probably still under progress, in Xposed GEL Settings.
You can use AOSP Lockscreen from Xposed.
