As we all know Android 4.4 has been officially launched
Here is a set of files which will bring Kitkat Launcher to our devices

Screenshots : Attached

Installation Instructions:
  • Download the following file.
  • Unrar the file and you’ll have 3 APKs inside – ‘GoogleHome.apk’, ‘PrebuiltGmsCore.apk’ and ‘Velvet.apk’.
  • Next, transfer all the APKs to your phone.
  • Use a file manager to browse to these APKs from your phone and install them in this order – PrebuiltGmsCore.apk, Velvet.apk and GoogleHome.apk. OR You can also simply copy the files to your root in System/app if rooted.
  • Now, simply select the launcher by pressing the ‘Home’ button and you’re all set.

Google now widget is missing from widgets....
But when i switch back to Touchwiz launcher i can see Google Now widget...

Everything works perfect except google now screen...

As i have read we can instantly access google now by swiping the left edge of the screen but it does not happen in this case

Unhappy Google Service Play Error

After installing this APK on my Samsung GT - i8262 every five minutes a error occurred,"Unfortunately, Google Service Play has stopped". Otherwise theme is good but please help me to solve this issue as it hangs my mobile sometimes.

Seems strange.. as it doesnt mess up with google play services..
can u try to wipe cache only in cwm recovery? or may be try and update google search from play store
