Default [Q] Google search not searching my device

After rooted the phone and using this rom - v2.0 XZ2 AROMA, google search doesn't not index my device (contacts/ apps). Which makes it unable to search my device. I can't find any settings in the google search app or google settings regarding to this. How should I fix this?

Delete the preinstalled play services, with a root explorer app, reboot and reinstall from the play store, it will now work.

@nintendolinky, how should I do this "Delete the preinstalled play services, with a root explorer app"? Should I be looking for a folder? or a bunch of files?

In priv-app there is gmscore.apk, delete that, reboot and then reinstall play services from the play store.

I am using "Root Browser". Trying to uninstall "system/priv-app/GmsCore.apk" got "Uninstall unsuccessful". What could be wrong?

You need to "delete" the file, not "uninstall" it.

I got it resolved by downloading ES file browser. This time tapping gmscore.apk shows "install" rather than "uninstall". I just "install" the apk and the phone search feature is back to normal now. Thanks everyone for the help.
