I really like this app and works well for me appart the known bugs.

do you see any way to fix them? especially the voice guidance? is this due to the proxy solution?

This might have something to do with the command below. As written, it will find and delete not only Maps, but also the My Maps Editor:

Code:
C:\>adb shell find /system /data -name \*google\*maps.apk\* -o -name Maps.apk
/data/dalvik-cache/[email protected]@[email protected]
/data/dalvik-cache/[email protected]@[email protected]
/data/app/com.google.android.apps.maps.apk
/data/app/com.google.android.apps.mymaps.apk

For peaople who are runing CM or other Mods based on google development ROMs, I find a solution how to restore the broken functionality of the applications that use google maps framework (e.g. My Track, My Maps Editor, etc.)

This will restore the original Google Maps. You can update it latter from the Market (for me it finds no updates). After this, you can use the bruts.all stand alone (alternative) version to get the full navigation and other stuff (maps 4.0) without messing up the framework file that other apps use for maps display and manipulation.

First go here and download this: DCR83_base_defanged.zip
(I'can post URLs, find you base image, for Magic 32A it is named DRC83_base_defanged.zip, for othe take a look at the CM wiki)

Connect your phone to the PC, enable debugging and make sure the ADB is working.

Uninstall the current Google Maps (hacked or stock whatever) by using this:
Code:
adb remount
adb shell find /system /data -name \*google\*maps.apk\* -o -name Maps.apk \| xargs rm
adb uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps
(for me this xargs rm is not working. I use only the find command, then delete one file at time by using RM)

Now extract from the DRC83_base_defanged.zip, the system\app\com.google.maps.apk to c:\com.google.maps.apk

Use ADB to install:
Code:
adb install c:\com.google.maps.apk
Then extract from the DRC83_base_defanged.zip , the System/Framework/com.google.android.maps.jar, to c:\com.google.android.maps.jar

Then run these commands:

Code:
adb remount
adb push c:\com.google.android.maps.zip /system/framework/com.google.android.maps.jar
REBOOT THE PHONE

After this, install the maps4.0.0-brut4-alt.apk (alt) maps, and you will have best of the both worlds, e.g. Old Google Maps (3.1) working, all applications that use google map working, and the new Google Maps (Name: Maps) working, with navigation and stuff. Bravo for Brut and other people who made it happen!

@Neejay, @neok44: the most of google maps floating here around were built by me or were rebuilt from my version, so it isn't a "good start" ;) and it naturally shares bugs with other versions.

About update.zip: hmm... I try to avoid creating 50 different versions. Now I have 2 versions, if I allow to choose modded or normal navi, then I will have 4. Apk or update.zip? - 8 different files. With or without zoom buttons? - 16.

"alt" version is a must, cause changes are in AndroidManifest.xml, so it isn't possible to change it after built. In last revision (rev4) I have saved my ass from version for Eclairs and Donutters, cause previous maps with MT was force-closing on stock Donut.

I will always try to find alternative to creating masses of subversions with different installation instructions and there actually is alternative to update.zip - very useful app Nav Launcher, which will do everything for you. I will add something about it to first post and try to cooperate with canadiancow, so Nav Launcher will install newest version right after I will release it.

It is known from 3.4.0 version of maps and as far as I know these problems occurs on original maps too :-/

I have copied commands from someone's else thread, but you're right: it will remove MME too. I will try to fix it.

Could be, but I can't live without these aps

Anyway, using the instructions I written above, it is possible to restore the framework and maps apk to the stock version (for me it is 3.1.2), and use everything normaly, and also to install your ALT version of the maps 4.0 with ruting, navigation and other stuff. I can't wish for more, live is beautiful

I never had this problem. I had "My Maps Editor" and "My Tracks" (both by Google) installed, followed Brut.all's instructions (the root apk, not the alt) with one exception (below), and those 2 apps continue to work fine. Of course, Brut.all's Maps works too.

The only thing I did differently was to avoid inadvertently removing the apks and dalvik cache's for either of the 2 apps, which are:
/data/app/com.google.android.apps.mymaps.apk
/data/app/com.google.android.maps.mytracks.apk
/data/dalvik-cache/[email protected]@[email protected] s.dex
/data/dalvik-cache/[email protected]@[email protected] ses.dex

None of this process ever involves /system/framework/com.google.android.maps.jar

This installer will also inadvertently delete the "My Maps Editor" apk. Not good.
