Get Google Now on the Motorola Atrix 2

August 30, 20120 Comments

For those who are unaware, Google Now is a predictive application that tells you the info you need to know before you actually need it. It will learn your daily routines such as going to work, learn your calender, and even learn your favorite sports teams. Once it learns something, it’ll put cards into your notification bar with information like what the traffic is like on your way to work, the weather in your area, the score of your favorite teams before, during, and after the game, and an assortment of other goodies. Unfortunately, for unrooted users, this is a feature that is only native on Jelly Bean.

But, of course, who stays unrooted anymore, right? For rooted users, there are far more options to get Google Now running on your device and the Motorola Atrix 2, you now have a method to get it installed on any Ice Cream Sandwich ROM. It should be noted that, as Google Now is not meant to run on Ice Cream Sandwich, there are still many bugs that need to be fixed but it is touted as being in near perfect running order. So if you can suffer through the bugs, this is an excellent way to check out the latest and greatest from Google.

The installation process is simple. You just need to download the appropriate files from the source link, boot into BootMenu, flash the files as prescribed, and reboot. Once done, you’ll be running Google Now and can start letting it learn your ways of life so it can give you the info when you need it. It should also be noted that Google Now itself is pretty new, so there are a lot of things it won’t do yet. As an example, the only hockey team the app currently supports is the LA Kings, so if you’re an avid hockey fan who isn’t into LA hockey, you’ll have to wait until they update for more teams. Otherwise, you’ll be good to go! Check out the source link for more information.
