Hi!

I'm having the problem that in Jelly Bean now maps doesn't show any Latitude-friends. It says there were no friends.

I first thought this was because now I've changed my GMail domain (in Germany it first was googlemail.com and now you could switch to gmail.com), but on my Xoom running ICS and the latest maps it works all right. It's just on my GN, where it doesn't work.

Does anyone else have this problem? Or does s.o. have an idea how to fix it?

Regards
McDV

Fix for Latitude

Delete the APK /System/App/maps.apk and redownload from the market. I can now see all my latitude friends.

Why should we?
1) I generally use CM9-nightlies, so why not this?
2) It surely is not very unstable, instead, it's pretty stable. Think about it: They want to release the official version in mid july! What do you think how much they can fix until then? There might be single small bugs left, but if the system could still be considered "unstable", they wouldn't release it before fall! And they wouldn't hand out a firmware to the press, if it wasn't - over all - finish. Just imagine what the Apple-community would write in their blogs...

I don't care if they flash now. Just don't complain when stuff doesn't work.

No one complains, we just ask for solutions that - obviously - exist. There's nothing wrong about it.

I really hate those guys with their "just wait for the official release" stuff. No one prevents you guys from waiting, but please let us enthusiasts test it and let us discuss ways to solve existing bugs on our own. If this annoys you, just don't read it! Thanks!

Glad I searched XDA for this problem - the fix worked for me too. I'm impressed with how stable the leak is already. This has been my only problem so far with native Google apps, or the ROM itself.
