google now rootedOne of the most notable aspects about the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system would be Google Now, which is Google’s version of the voice assistant – Apple has Siri, Samsung has S-Voice, so here we are with Google Now that has been made available on rooted devices, although it has already arrived on a couple of so of Android-powered devices on an official basis. Folks over at the XDA forums claim that a couple of flashable .ZIP files have been made available, where it would bring Google Now and all of its goodness to a range of Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Android smartphones and tablets.

A version of the flashable .ZIP will carry the whole Google Now experience, inclusive of offline dictation, while the other version is a lighter version, so to speak, where it does not have offline dictation at all. Minimum system requirements to run a port of Google Now? A rooted ARMv7 device which runs ClockWorkMod Recovery and comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to boot. Considering how many Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs there are, the list of compatible devices is nothing short of expansive.
