    Yes, I did. I loved the searches and how they displayed, but terribly missed the ability to speak searches, and it also caused me to lose the Google search widget. Fortunately for me, 94lt1 came to my rescue!! He told me how to fix it...I'll leave that for him to explain.

    I reversed the installation. When it's truly available with the Voice Search feature I WILL be installing it.

    I love it, its working great for me. what's the problem with voice?? mine works just fine, you tell it what your looking for and then you have to hit enter and your good to go. hitting enter does does not bother me to much but I could see how the extra step might annoy someone.
    By the way maybe you guys dont know this but voice search works for it now go here The Google Now for ICS Project. [UPDATE 7/19][VOICE WORKAROUND][APK AND ZIP] - xda-developers and it will show you how to install it.

    I'm kind of ashamed to say but I did go to that link and I followed it to the letter. I now have Google Now on my Razr MAXX and I can Voice Search. But I'm still stumped as to how to get the voice "read out" to work on my ICS as it does with Jelly Bean. If its something I'm missing or not enabling I would like to find out and get it working.

    Go to the link I posted, you need to download the voice app. pay close attention to the download ITS THE ONE THAT SAYS VOICE APP. download and install it like a normal app. check on your apps and you will see the new icon there LOOK AT my picture of my phone its the light blue one called voice search
