Warning: This is only for users who are DEODXED ( ie. Running SCV7) AND on ICS!
Good day to All!!
I can confirm that Google Now works on the Atrix 2!!!

Give a thanks to seedoubleyou for finding the original zip from the 300+ page google now port thread!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bloatware Remover!
This is HIGHLY recommend to flash before installing Google Now. This zip will free up a lot of system space to make more room for the google now installation avoiding many errors.
This will MOVE the following apps to /data/app
Google Plus
Gmail
Facebook
Flashplayer
Warning: You will loose any app data associated with these apps!

DOWNLOAD BLOATWARE REMOVER
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Google Now Version 10!
Update 8/22/2012!
In v10 some minor bugs were fixed... links should open more readily and the notifications should appear more often!
This is a NEAR PERFECT working version!
NEW INSTALL Instructions:
You MUST INSTALL V7 FIRST then V9!!
1.) Place google now v7-farshad525hou.zip and Google Now v10 on sdcard
2.) Reboot into BOOTMENU
3.) Wipe Dalvik Cache
4.) Install Zip
5.) Reboot
6.) THEN reboot back into bootmenu
7.) Install V9
8.)Reboot!

Thanks for Clicking Thanks!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Google Now Remover
For those who do not like the bugs of Google Now I have a zip that will delete it and restore the original ICS search.
Instructions for installing are the same as above:

Yeah, i'm still fighting only having 14MB free on my /system partition. Are you guys (that got it working) running a deodexed ROM or did you do something else to get more space in there?

I'm on SCV7 so its deodexed. So that gives me some extra space.

I can confirm (at least on my phone) that Google Now works!! I will not be posting any links until I get this approved by our devs as I've heard some phones don't have enough room in the system partition to install all the lib files. But after fiddling around with it for an hour I got it to work voice search and all. Once I get this approved I will (try to) make a full guide to get this on your phones!!

Alright, now that I have approval of the devs, I will ATTEMPT to make a flashable zip. All you will have to do is boot into bootmenu and flash to get google now! This might take a couple of days as I'm relativly new to creating zips and such. IF I'm not able to make a working zip I will do my BEST to make a comprehensive guide on how to install it manually!

I got it to instal OK. as long as you follow the directions it's not too bad.
Mine is kinda laggy though. Is yours?

It can be a little buggy at times, but it works fine 90% of the time.

Existing flashable zip: http://www.mediafire.com/?p8avdan0jbjacke

I haven't tried it yet

EDIT: CONFIRMED WORKING , booted into custom recovery, flashed, rebooted...

no need to work on this one dude...its already done...

just make sure you're using SCV7 , not stock ICS as you most likely will not have enough room to install..
