...........................................

First of all ...download the latest Maps Update;
Long press on blank space on the screen---->WIDGETS
Open Widget DIRECTIONS....do NOT type anything, just press CANCEL
Now open MAPS.apk.
(short version: Directions widget--->Cancel--->open Maps)
It should work now until phone restart, directly by pressing MAPS icon.
Repeat steps from above every time when you restart your phone, kill maps apk, or maps won't open from some reason.

I repeated these steps 4-5 times and now MAPS work directly from apk. without direction widget.

If you want to navigate using MAPS.apk, then activate a GPS, open DIRECTIONS Widget and type the desired direction, or open Maps apk and navigate from there.

I guarantee 100% that works for my repack (b708 RePack BbN)

Good Luck!

Hello,
I would like to report an issue here on Data network switch option not given. I am using this rom for 2months and about 2days ago I was getting only 2G data service and couldn't find to switch to 3G. However, from Xda I got a solution by following ial this > *#*#2846579159#*#*
Could you tell me why this option is not included in this rom please.
