Ok so I recently got the Verizon OTA update for my rooted Droid 4. I'm lovin it, but I'm curious about the postings that I've been finding about porting "Google Now" to ICS, and I'm trying to figure out if it's possible on Droid 4.
But, the only custom recovery mod I could find that would work for Droid 4 was Safestrap 2.0. I'm able to boot into Safestrap Recovery, but you need to switch over to something called Safe Mode to flash anything on the phone, and I can't seem to get my phone to even boot in Safe Mode. Somewhere I read that it's because you can't load the stock rom into Safe Mode. It's only for custom roms.
Anybody who knows more than me have any ideas? Thanks.
Hehe nevermind. I found an answer to my own question xP
You CAN get Google Now on Droid 4! What I did was flash the Google Now zip file over a deodexed version of the stock ROM that someone pointed out to me on the Droid Forums. Just flash the custom recovery mod Safestrap 2.0 onto your phone, and then boot into Safestrap. Switch over into "Safe" mode, wipe data and flash the ROM. (You might need to already have ICS to flash Safestrap 2.0. Not sure. Anyone know?). Anyway, here's the ROM.
Google Now is awesome!! I'm sooooo happy to finally have it. Voice recognition is great. Only complaint is that the Bluetooth Voice Dialer is a piece of crap. But I just open the "Voice Commands" app when using Bluetooth. And the ROM is pretty cool too. No bloatware, and runs great. Oh and, there's a Droid Razr 1% battery MOD that works on it
