    I saw Superboy4444's tutorial on how to install Google now. But the tutorial was from before we had CWM.
    So now that we do have CWM, is there a easier way to install it?

    You say you"saw"? For now I'm going to assume that was on youtube, and if that's the case, there's a link if you scroll down under the video that links you to the xda dev. site's specific thread to download to your sd card. I'm also going to assume that you are rooted and already have CWM recovery installed. So now, it's just a matter of booting into recovery, and flashing it into the OS.

    But first, you will need to remove some system apps to make room for it. If you don't,not all files will be copied over. Check /cache/recovery/last_log to make sure it installed successfully as CWM won't tell you if it didn't copy everything. For a list off safe apps to remove, go to the CM10 thread.
