I also had this google maps problem after flashing the 3.2 rom and the simple way to get it working from there was

1) back up the map app using titanium backup (actually, I had already done this as part of a general backup)
2) uninstall it from inside titanium backup
3) reboot phone
4) restore it from the backup, choosing the option to restore app only and not the settings

The only slightly problematic moment was finding the backed up version to restore. Nothing seems to happen on the filtering screen in titanium, but when you press "back" a filtered list appears.

But this method doesn't require any command line fiddling nor any cables

Thanks, this fixed it (after manually installing busyboy in titaniumbackup) and now I have a working google maps :)

@DrDre: Thanks for the command to remove "wifi-status"

Because the latest Google Maps requires 1.6+ - just get the .apk from the custom ROM update.zip file and drop it into /system/app.


Cheers for the help. I've installed a Android 2.1 port from HTC Legend in the end. Runs smoothly but there is a few little bugs in it.

I just couldn't resist to try some 2.1 roms. In my opinion Villain rom was the best, but nevertheless I came back to Modaco 3.2: the speed and stability of this ROM is something I just can't live without =D So once again: thanks Paul for your great work!

I think I might come back to be fair. 7 hours after full charge and its nearly dead! But looking at some of the roms when, or should that be if, 2.1 comes out it should be pretty good.

Has anybody tried installing the four square app?

I've got it on but it keeps on crashing with the error:

The application Foursquare (process com.joelapenna.foursquared) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again

Hi Paul, I was just wondering... In your post, you mentioned that the ROM is available in 2 cores. One with and one without Chinese Input. But as I can see, there's only 1 download link for the 3.2. I'm actually looking for the Chinese Input version. Also, would you be adding the latest Superuser 2.1 for Hero? It has support for cupcake versions, I've flashed the unsecure version and can confirm that it works. (:

I couldn't agree more. About to the exact same "downgrade". Villain is not bad, but nothing compares to MoDaCo ROM

I flashed this zip file to fix the Chinese Input. After flashing it, compose a message and click on the little "Gear" icon to enable it.

Bluetooth file transfer is not integrated in Android 1.5 (MCR 3.2 is based on 1.5). You need to install 3rd party software or get the WIP 2.1 update.

Hi

Can anyone tell me where to download MCR3.1 from on MoDaCo? I have searched for it but cannot find the post with all the links to the various flavours of 3.1 + radio packs.

Thanks

Nevermind, seems that the background-services did trigger upon time anyway, cool. :) Too bad I got to make an ass out of myself.

Hey
I installed the ROM and I am very pleased, except that it kills services that are supposed to be running, i.e. Remember The Milk (planner/~GTD) and other.
Is there a way to exclude tasks from being automatically killed? I currently use SystemPanel to manually close all programs if necessary.
Regarding inactive applications not running as services, I'm very pleased that the ROM-additions kill them.

Richard

PS: I have installed Autokiller and applied the preset Optimum to save services such as Remember The Milk and reverse lookup, but I'd like to know the cause of this issue, why important programs like that are killed.

Hi

I've been away from here for a while and have lost touch.

I want to install MCR 3.2

I'm currently on 2.9.

To save me wading through the last hundred pages or so can anyone tell me if I need to do anything other than install 3.2 over the top of 2.9? I've done a Nandroid backup but that's all; anything else I need to do?

Thanks in advance.
