Samsung Fascinate: How to Install Google Search Now

By Alan Ng - Sep 14, 2010

You may remember yesterday how we informed you that Google Search would be coming to the Samsung Fascinate on Verizon via the update to Android 2.2 Froyo. We now have a guide to show you how to install it now if you can’t wait.

A tutorial guide for this handy trick comes to us courtesy of Android Central, who have provided some easy to follow steps over on their website.

Firstly, you’ll need to download the Enhanced Google Search provider apk which you can find here. Once you’ve done that, put the file on your SD card and then proceed to install it via a file manager. The last step is to acquire a third-party launcher such as ADW or Launcher Pro and then move the Google widget back onto the home screen.

If you have followed these steps correctly, it should be working fine for you, don’t forget to download Google Maps from the Android Market if you haven’t already.

If you want to get the voice feature of Google Search working too, you’ll need to have a rooted handset, you can find details on that over at Android Central.

Did it work for you? Have fun running Google Search on your Fascinate before everyone else! Any of you actually prepared to stay with Bing?
