The Google Now Installer/Restorer v1.1

Purpose
There have been a lot of users with issues installing and uninstalling Google Now for ICS. This is my solution for those users.

This is only an installer for the many different variations of Google Now that were created in this news worthy thread: The Google Now for ICS Project

This installer allow user of different types of roms and devices to quickly install Google Now to see if it works for them and if it does not, it allows these users to restore their original Google Search.

This thread is not and will not be about issues with specific modded Google Now apks, go here: The Google Now for ICS Project for that. I have no problem incorporating new apks into the installer. But I will not attempt to deal with issues outside of the installer.

Testing(Green = working, Red = not working)
(Need more people to test as many different devices, roms, and recoveries)
Devices
HTC EVO 3D
HTC EVO 4g LTE

Roms
OTA_Shooter_ICS_35_S_Sprint_WWE_2.89.651.2-2.17.651.5
Tranquility rls1b

Recoveries
CWM 5.0.2.0
TWRP s-on

So if you experience any issues, I will attempt to help, but understand that I if you are not setup the exact same, I may not know what is wrong.

Touch recovery is not active in this aroma installer, so use up and down to make a selection and the power button to confirm the selection.

Requirements
Rooted
ICS
CWM (only recovery tested, others may work, you let me know)

Instructions(should already know this, but here you go)
1. Transfer .zip to the root of your sd card
2. Boot into recovery
3. Select "install zip from sdcard"
4. Select "choose zip from sdcard"
5. Select "GoogleNowforICSInstaller_v1.0.zip"
6. Select "Install GoogleNowforICSInstaller_v1.0.zip"

Once the installer is up, the rest should be self explanatory, if not just follow the prompts.

I hope this helps someone.

It should work on any ICS phone, but it has only been tested on the phone listed in the 1st post.
jdcasino confirms that it works on his HTC EVO 4g LTE.

yes, but if I remember correctly, touchwiz differs from sense in framework files or something. I have epic 4g touch. can anyone else confirm that google now can work on stock rooted touchwiz phone if /system space wasn't an issue?
