What do you mean by "work over wifi"? Supposedly how is it working without this registry entry?
What I mean is this...
Google Maps has never worked for me over WiFi. It only worked with GPRS, when you have a cell signal. With this reg entry now it works over WiFi but the My Location does not work yet. You can set the map for your area by searching or moving it to your area and use Google Maps as you would to search for things or directions. Map load time and everything else is much faster. I am looking for the driver in the ROM, if there is one that allows Google Maps My Location feature work over WiFi too.
HUH!? I'm using the official Google Maps and it has always worked fine over wifi! No fix needed.
From a clean install of official test Wm6.5 ROM on my friends T-Mobile Touch Pro2 Google Maps does not work over WiFi. I have never recalled it working in the past when I have tried it. Maybe you have different version because you are in a different country than me but as far as I recall, on my ROM and official ROM it does not work over WiFi but with registry fix it does.
Turn off your radio and see if google maps works. I just did another hard reset to test and after reset it does not work over wif but with registry tweak it does.
google maps works (fully with "my location") for me with wifi without any fix. I use "nodata" to disable all other connections and I use my home and work wifi with no problems! Is there a problem with your wifi - perhaps blocking this app?? (I'm no expert)
