    when did you get the update? almost none/none of us have it...

    can you do us a favor and post in this thread: http://androidforums.com/htc-one-x-xl/639352-theyre-starting-get-jb-2.html that you have it and where you are and when you got it?

    As for Google Now, since none of us have the update yet, we don't really know how google now works exactly, maybe post in the applications or general support forums?

    It won't always talk back, what sort of questions are you asking it? If you ask things like "How old is XXX", it will speak an answer, but other times, it will just search for you.

    It will also talk back if you add appointments to calendars, set alarms etc.

    Without having the update it will be hard to help with this one but I remember seeing something about it and apparently there is a voice setting somewhere that needs to be turned on to always.. sorry if that's a bit vague

    I saw a tip about this on the XDA forum saying that you need to:

    1. clear cache and data from Google Now (essentially reset the app)
    2. Download and run a locale-changing app like MoreLocale 2 or Locale Select
    3. Choose English US as locale for the phone
    4. Run Google Now and perform initial setup in it - select English as language
    5. Later, you're free to revert your phone locale to whatever it was. In theory, Google Now should remember your initial setting to English US

    I can't test nor verify any of the above since I'm still on 4.0.4, but it seemed to have worked for folks on XDA.

    Just stuck on CM10 and within Google Now settings, there's an option for voice. Is that set to headset only?
