Smile GoogleNow Working with voice both online and offline latest ver7 & FAQ,Troubleshoot

Hello
Here is the newest most amazing app Google Now from google working fully both online and offline
It Should work on Sense/Timescape UI (sony mobiles ) /CM/AOKP/AOSP

Firstly ; This guide in only for ARMv7.(NEO ,NEO V And others )

If you dont know of which type your phone is head over to this thread : http://smart4u.org/forum/Thread-List...v7-ARMv6-ARMv5





This is mikeyXDA latest version (ver7) ... Improved since ver6 Much quicker response in ver 7 and smooth
There is no need to change permissions of the file anymore ..it is by default what it should be
Before U start : U should have atleast 60 mb freespace on ur /system partition to get this working or 30 mb for online online only version

Here are my phone specs : Neo v , Xperia Pureness 11 , Using Solid Explorer (its the best you guys should check it out )


For ES file explorer users
Open Es file explorer >Settings >Check "Up to root" >Then check "root explorer">allow access when superuser asks>Check "mount file system"
press back u will be on ur Sd card
press back again and ur into the root of ur android




Heres what u need to get it working
1) ICS
2) Rooted Phone :P
3) CWM installed
4) Latest Gapps (if required )
5)You must be on a deodexed ROM : One way to find out is use a Root Explorer app and navigate to "/system/app" and check if an ".odex" extension file exists. If yes, the ROM is odex; otherwise, the ROM is Deodexed.

Lets start

Latest L4 - lenny_kano's version 4 : Its identical to the Mikey v& update, allows you to download your language files.

Link : http://www.mediafire.com/download/6r...hw/lennyv4.zip


No online/Offline version only one zip
*Go back to google search by flashing the Google now to google search zip and then clear dalvik cache and cache, flash the zip*


For those who are having Reeko tubbs version or mikey XDA previous version installed :
First flash this through CWM http://www.4shared.com/zip/sFyQUr7c/...le_Search.html
This will clean up your google now aand bring back the google search SO you can start a fresh install and no errors are there

For fresh installers no need to install the above zip .you are by default on google search

Download Mikey XDA ver 7 from here : http://www.4shared.com/zip/eb5ydKHM/...7_Offline.html ( This will work both online and offline )
OR
Only Online ver of MikeyXDA v7 from here : http://www.4shared.com/zip/41f9aB6v/...v7_Online.html
Boot into recovery
Clear cache and dalvik cache
Install Zip from SD card >Select the zip
Flash it through CWM

For confirmation that everything is fine :
Open ur file explorer >system >usr>srec(u will see two folders config and en-us )
tap and hold on the config folder >and the permission of the folder will be rwx-rx-rx (this will be for en-us also )
Now go to system>app > see velvet 2.apk or velvet.apk properties it will be set to rw-r-r


And Google now is on ur device



Troubleshooting

1.) The red mic screen won't display.
To fix this, press the normal mic within the Google Now app. While it is listening (after it beeps), press menu > refresh. Now you're at the red mic.
2.) Can't exit the Google Now app with the back button.
Use the Home button.
3.) Google Now Force Closes.
Make sure you have enough space on your /system partition before installing this. You need at least 60MB free for the Offline versions and 30MB free for the Online versions
.
4) If u still cant get it installed :Try flashing the latest Gapps And then Flash Google now

Latest FAQ :https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...yCE/edit?pli=1
Latest Troubleshooting : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=695

Google Now command thread : forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1817640



If it doesn't install please provide your
1.ROM info
2.The zip u used to install
3.Android version ur using
4.the recovery u are using (CWM and other recovery )
5./system partition size

if I understand that is not possible to write text messages using the google voice command using this modification?
Is this mod recognize other languages? for example Polish?
