K1: Getting the latest Google Search/Now to work on krook1's CM10 JB build

2013-02-03, 1:45 AM

For anybody who is running krook1's CM10 build on your K1, and have the problem that the latest version of Google Search/Now abruptly closes almost immediately after you launch it, it turns out there is an easy workaround.


Go into the tablet Settings, select "Language & Input", select "Voice search", and then disable "Hotword detection". 


What this does is disable the ability for you to just say "Google" followed by some search terms, and have the tablet automatically detect that and launch a Google search.   But apparently that is what is causing Google Now to crash/close, so it's clearly a worthwhile trade-off.
