After the 4.3JB update, my xperia m lost the option to launch Google now by swyping up the home screen button. After the restarting the phone I got the it back for some time, but then it was gone again.

If you want to try https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.AdrianCampos.swipeuputility it lets you choose what to do when you swipe up. I set it to nothing because I was constantly hitting it accidently.

Actually I would like it back, because I think it's cool. None of my friends have onscreen keys, so they have always been fascinated by how I do it with ease.

That app will let you choose any program for the swipe, including Google.

I used to have that problem when i had indian version of the firmware on my phone.
Then, I flashed the global version of the firmware, and since then, this feature has been working perfectly for me.
