Please be aware there is two different versions; Google Now launcher and AOSP version called "Launcher3" without Google Now on the left. Do you have an APK? As the Google Now launchers I'm downloading are throwing back a "Parse Error" with the latest version of Search. :)

EDIT: He is correct, full Google Now Launcher working. Here is the link: http://d-h.st/f6b

It's just fiy, download the launcher from any source that you like, no need to install any search.apk, enjoy!

I hope the info made some of u waiting for KitKat happy who would've never checked if its working again(as there was no Intel search.apk).

It does not work there are always a google error message :/

I had to re-update Google Play Services and Google Search from the play store to get it working.

Maybe we have to install only "GoogleHome.apk" and it should be ok.

Yes that's all that is needed to be done.
Do the relevant updates from the play store.
Then just download from the link above unzip and install just Google home

"OK Google" anywhere.

has anyone been able to activate hotword recognition everywhere as other devices? i tried both rooted and unrooted ways I found on XDA and none has worked, maybe this is something x86.apk related.

I can activate google now from anywhere, including the app drawer and lock screen.

I can even activate it while watching movies on Netflix or watching videos on YouTube.

No it is bound to the Google now and the best reason to use it is the nice Google now implementation.
