How to enable Google Now in Nepal and other countries In Android 4.4 (Solve – Google Location reporting not available in your region problem)
Google Now was first introduced in Android 4.1 Jellybean and it has been used as a personal assistant by many android users ever since. However after the introduction of Android 4.4 Kitkat many users started to complain that the search update broke google now functionality.
Tried it out? Still no luck?? Then you’ve come to the right place. I tried it on my Galaxy Nexus and it worked in the first attempt.
Here’s a video showing Google Now working on my phone.
Just make sure you have an active internet connection and follow all the steps below carefully.
Turn on Airplane mode in your device. Now turn on Wifi and connect it to your Wifi network.
Go to Settings>Location & switch to “Device only” mode
Install this app from Playstore (Fake gps – fake location)
Open the app and set the location to “Miami” (I chose Miami but you can select any other places in the USA which would get guaranteed Google Now support). It might ask you to enable mock location first, do that from the developer options in the settings and set the location to Miami.
Go to Settings and tap in “Google” under Accounts. Then select “Search”. Go to Accounts & privacy> Google Account and sign out.
Go to Settings>Apps>All and look for Google Play Services. Tap on it and Disable it. Then it may ask you to uninstall updates and restore to factory version, do it.
Go to Settings and tap in “Google” under Accounts. Then select “Search”. Go to Accounts & privacy> Google Account and sign in to your Google account.
Google Now setup screen should come up. Select I’m in. (It’s obvious).
Now it may prompt you to Re-enable Google Play Services, do it and an update might be available for Google Play Services, update it from Playstore. Then Turn off Airplane Mode. Uninstall Fake gps app and choose the location service of your choice under Settings>Location.
You did it. Give yourself a pat on the back and enjoy Google Now!
Do let me know if it worked or didn’t work on your Android Device.

doesn’t work on Lollipop 5.0.1
When you want to sign back in, the device forces you to update the google play services first. You won’t be able to see the sign in feature on or google under accouts. And when you update the Google Play Services, it goes back to previous state, not letting you to activate google now cards. In fact the fake location wouldn’t work either unless you update Play Services.

I have some issue as Max. I’m using Xperia SP with 4.3 (JB).
I unchecked the two options (1. Remotely locate this device and 2. Allow remote lock and erase) in the Android Device Manager for step 2 you mentioned. For all the other steps, i did as you described.
After step 7, it forced me to update the google play service first. Fake Location app is showing the different location from my region (seems it working).
