Default Google Now

So, even though I don't have this phone, yet, I'm wondering if there is any way to be able to put Google Now on it? I understand it's a Jelly Bean app, but I'd love to have it on the Spirit 4G. I am planning on getting it in the next 2 or 3 weeks.

As far as I know, that's impossible without root.

Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking too. I hadn't done a lot of research on it yet, so wasn't certain though.

From my experience... on my Evo 4G running paranoid Android 4.0.4 (had other jellybean ROMs but didn't use) but when I was on 4.0.4 there was a guide on how to install google now on ice cream sandwich.... obviously out required root but the only thing that didn't work on google now on 4.0.4 was you can't talk into it.. just type instead but it still works: ))) so yeah it's possible... very possible with root... just search "HTC Evo 4g" or like"google now ON ICS " it's possible dudes: ) just follow the guide.. took approximately 10 minutes

We know it's possible, we just don't have root yet

The LG Spirit is a mid-end device with a bit of a stronger punch. The device doesn't do bad with a 4.5-inch screen, Android 4.0 and a 1.2 GHz processor. All for $200 after a $70 mail-in rebate (no contract) from Metro PCS. Not a bad deal if you... Read More
