yeah i would like to get this on my Minix Neo X7 TV box

It will not work with otner devices exept nexus box and i also think that it is too pity that it works only with some devices, i think they are mistaken with this decision.
I use Handy Smart TV Launcher ( its’ remote control app for my tv box and i ‘m sure that it will be the main rival for this new launcher from Google. Morover it works with a lot of mobile devices and tv-boxes and have intuitive remote control app.

Kinda surprised that nobody has been successful in hacking this to work on regular old android builds. Considering the Google play launcher from lollipop was ported to older versions of android before the play store version was updated I'd think it would be technically possible at least... Too bad I don't have the knowledge to do it myself.

I have it / installed running (laidbacklauncher) whatever that drop box apk was.. it installs.. and runs.. but if you click the voice seach, it crashes, and it looks like its constantly loading (recommendations) but it deffinately loaded.

(Note 2 I317m - model phone)

But i changed a setting in the system via build.prop editor changing the brand of my device to nexus where it before was T0lte (custom firmware for note 2)

i never attempted to install it prior so i dont know if it will load or not. going to see if the play store detects my phone as a nexus and allows the apk download.. (fingers crossed)
