GoogleNow Working with voice both online and offline latest ver7 & FAQ,Troubleshoot
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
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.
Latest L4 - lenny_kano's version 4 : Its identical to the Mikey v& update, allows you to download your language files.

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 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
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
