    XenonHD is the best on my phone. I have tried AOKP, Sourcery, Belly, CNA, and was getting discouraged. The last one was XenonHD and I'm home for now.

    They are all in experimental mode though.

    Don't blame the ROM. I just tried what failed for you and it succeeded for me.

    Make a nandroid and do a good wipe and flash again? Thats what I do before I condemn a ROM.

    But my Honda 90 may go 5mph faster than your Honda 90 - Eh?

    I am a staunch, die hard, AOKP supporter that donates but, for now, XenonHD is doing better for me.

    You betcha JB4 will be stroked on my device.

    Running JB Sourcery and Google Now is perfect. I have clean wiped and flash the last 2 versions of Xenon (going to 12 then going to 13).

    My other Nexus with stock JB is also perfect.

    Its the ROM. At least on my Honda.

    Just an update...


    Google Now working prperly on:

    JB Sourcery 2.3
    Clean JRO03O ASOP
    XenonHD v14

    Google Now is being stupid with:

    XenonHD v13
    Bugless Beast JB

    AOKP v4 is apprently dropping today, so I'll clean flash and try that one next.

    Okay, my Google Now has gone nuts again. Below is an example of something that works perfectly when I type it, then detects my voice perfectly, but behaves completely differently.



    Xenon 14, which seemed to be previously working fine.

    Sorry for the double post, but this thread is more visible to everyone using Now.

    Ha... I got me thinking. So I tried my Google now that was working perfectly with Xenon v14. And. Now it's doing the same thing as yours.

    This sucks.

    Time to roll to AOKP.

    Voice search was always crap. Nothing but a gimmick.
    I cant think of a single situation where using it was quicker than actually using whatever function it was that i wanted to use anyway.

    Google now just makes things worse. I cant say im impressed with constant google navigate in the background navigating me to places i went to a week ago that just plain wont **** off. I hate to say this as ive been a fan of Android from the beginning but its seriously starting to annoy me now having these useless gimmicky non intuitive bits of bloatware installed.

    The other issue i get is with g+ constantly attempting to upload pics off my phone despite 'instant uploads' being disabled on my phone, tablet, and pc web browser.

    Looking forward to ubuntu mobile as a possible alternative.

    You search for and bump an old thread about a bug in some ROMs to tell everyone that you don't like voice search?

    Pretty much just joined to gripe about GV search.

    All my issues were corrected many ROMS ago.

    Sounds like trolling...
  12. Google voice search has always sucked, and lagged behind Apple's voice search. Ever try voice dialing? Now that really sucks. Welcome to Android.

    I use voice dialing almost everyday... Works great 99% of the time.

    In fact the only time I have issues is a OE problem (Operator Error), like only using the person's first name when their in the phone book with first and last...
