Default 06/25 Google Now Update hacking

Hey, I'm messing around with the settings here.

As you might know, Google released an update for Google Now. It now allows the use of "OK Google anywhere" and is always listening while charging, pretty much like Moto X! Yay

But it seems that not everybody is getting it, mostly folks outside U.S., and the Moto X is having a hard time to make it run.
As I always mod the Google Now to work on my mother language, I did a brief comparison between both new and old "StartupSettings.bin" and found a couple of new guys, but two caught my eye:

Code:
hotword_blacklisted_devices>XT1049,XT1050,XT1052,XT1053,XT1055,XT1056,XT1058,XT1060,XT912A
Those are all Moto X versions
and:

Code:
!relationships_peopleapi_http_path4https://www.googleapis.com/plus/v2whitelisted/people
which might be the "VIP" list to see if the user is eligible for the new feature.

Some guy from AndroidPolice assured that he could get the feature for a single-use only, if he logged out of Google Now, logged in and tried the feature out. After the first use, the feature would be removed, and all he'd get is the typical "OK Google" from the home screen.

What do you guys think? I'll try to set the whitelist to localhost here to see what happens.

Holy crap dude, it worked.

I modded Google Now to work with my Mother Language, pt-BR. I'll have a look to see if I make it able to work on pt-BR too. Every text and instructions are correct in this language, so it must only be a simple think.

Thank you!

------------------

Damn. It presents me the option to record my voice three times for later recognition, but it crashes just at the end.
So close..

------------------
So stupid! There's no need for this anymore. It has "two languages" now. I set the primary as English and the secondary as Portuguese (Brasil).
Works flawless! This is awesome. Thanks
