I'd be interested, installed it but won't fire up. I've also tried Flash Earth but results are hit and miss.

Same issue here. R1.04 + r4 modaco custom rom.

Strange behaviour after install and run. The screen goes black and the status bar flips between portrait and landscape indefinitely. Have to force quit to kill it.

I am no dev, but I imagine that Google Earth uses the NDK, and if so does it need to be targetted to the Tegra 2 architecture to work properly, possibly why you have to use special builds of flash and not the version on the market?

Yessssss .... It works.
I may have overcooked the solution, but here goes.

It won't start unless it has a location. I found an app "My fake location' in the market. This needs to be running (with an icon in the notification bar).

Paul's ROM pretends that the Vega is a Nexus One (passion) but the original line in build.prop for the Harmony is still there (remarked out with a hash). This may not be necessary but I swapped the remarks around so the Vega would correctly identify itself before downloading Earth.

And it works. Sweet, with two finger swipe and rotation - just like an iPad :-)

Merry.Christmas!

Works with just installing my fake location app.

Thanks and merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Many many thanks. Merry Christmas :-) Top stuff!

I think another worthy addition to Paul's next software repack (the fake location app) as it also allows you to use the navigation app offline as well :-D

Did anyone ever get this running with the latest ROM? Even with Fake location etc engaged, earth simply loads then crashes every time it's opened....

Works fine for me with myfakelocation running first - on r6 with perf' pack. It certainly crashed when I didn't have myfakelocation though.
You get the myfakelocation icon in the notification bar - top left?

Have installed my fake location but when trying to run Google Earth I just get a 'this app is not responding' error and have to kill it.

Anyone have any idea's ?
