Download Google Now apk for Ice Cream Sandwich Devices, ported from Jelly Bean (How to Install guide)
One of the most exiting features of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the new voice search system called Google Now. The new Google service is very useful for obtaining information based on location, interests and previous searches. You can check out an awesome video comparison between Google’s voice assistant and Siri for Apple iPhone. As soon as google released the sour code Jelly Bean based ROM’s popping up for Android devices and the Google Now app was ported to other devices. Unfortunately the early ported Voice Now app could’n enjoy voice searches and responses, as some features couldn’t be made to work. Until now.
Well now you will be able to enjoy full service as fully working Google Now has been ported with voice, for ARMv7 CPU based devices. All you require a rooted phone and ClockWorkMod Recovery (CWM) or Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) to install the apk from recovery menu. You will need to make sure you have at least 60MB of free space on your /system partition for Offline/Online files and 30MB of free /system space for Online Only files.
