    The new velvet apk is awesome but I can't get Google home to work. I've tried every step and possible workaround there is but still get force close.

    I've not got it to work yet either, I get a error about some placeholder for google search not found lol.

    Google camera works tho, I got a pm about it and checked it out, no purple 1080p video with it. ;)

    Did you install the Google_recognizer lib from xda? I did but it still didn't allow Google home to work. Still getting Google search can't be found as well.

    Yea I read about the same from droid life, tho I got the apks straight from google (stock images for N5) ;)

    Supposedly to get the launcher to work you need the GoogleHome.apk, Velvet.apk, and PrebuiltGmsCore.apk.

    I placed both the launcher and velvet into the system, placed the lib in the system only thing I didn't replace yet in the system is the pre-built. I don't even know if it's all necessary but installing them like a regular app didn't work so I'm trying everything.

    Did you replace the gms core already in the system or just add the pre-built?

    Are you on stock or custom? I haven't unlocked my BL yet so no recovery.
