    Google Search

    Is there any GoogleSearch.apk for 1.5 out there? I want to get rid of Yahoo (like all of you).

    I did a Google search and found apk's, but they were for 1.6+

    Hi! Unfortunately, there is no fix for the problem with search as of now.

    Changing the GoogleSearch APK has no effect as it seems to be tied to the MotoSearch APK as well.

    Hang in there, there should be a fix soon...

    Thanks for your reply, sir.

    In return, you get a motoblur icon. :blur:

    No problem! I'm actually waiting on the fix myself.

    I've been testing the APK's on the emulator but no luck yet...

    It's not a widget, but I use Aurora. The included widget works the same as the icon, so I just use the icon. When you type in a search, the indexed list it starts up and will have google icons next to each result, click the icon and it takes you straight to google results in the browser. I forget if I had to change any settings to make the google icon show up, but it's the easiest way I've found to search google from the home screen on the backflip. It supports voice search if you've installed it, too.

    personally I went with the "skyfire" method

    I still have a "yahoo" search bar, but it provides me with google search results.

    Im just going to skin the search bar with a google logo once I can figure out how to without it screwing up the rest of my phone haha

    I took setting google as my homepage a step further, and wrote a quick homepage with my most frequent links on it, and embedded google search.



    But this way won't let you do voice search, so it's a compromise. And I'm too lazy to figure out why google won't center.

    Gomer, what's the skyfire method?

    Download skyfire from the market, set it as your default browser with google as the home page. if you deleted the motosearch.apk and such from your phone, when you use the search bar it will ask you for a default method, select skyfire and poof google results from the "yahoo" search bar.
