    Anyone theme Maps 4.20?

    I am having a heck of a time trying to theme Maps 4.20. I have a few of the buttons I want to change out when you tap "menu" while in Maps. I don't like the plain gray ones, so I found some colorful ones.

    When I push my edited Maps.apk to /system/app, I no longer have access to Maps. When I try editing com.google.android.apps.maps.apk, it won't install. All I am trying to do is change six or seven PNG's in the drawable-160dpi and drawable-240dpi folders. I keep them the same size and pixels, just a different picture.

    Any idears from the collective wisdom here at DF?

    I have it themed, the icons you are talking about. And it works but haven't figured out an easy way for it to work for everyone. I got it working on stock froyo but won't work the same way for bb.

    Ill pm you after I'm done working on the truck..

    I got it.....when I was pushing the APK via ADB, I forgot to mount system.

    I combined your Maps with a few icons I prefer for the menu bar.

    If you are going to be using the Google Maps app, I would suggest theming this one. Its modded by Brut.all. It has extra settings, like caching map tiles to SD card, which improves map performance, and reduces the amount of data that would have to be downloaded from Google to show you the tiles. Which even makes browsing the map something you can do OFFLINE, or when you have no signal. There are other features, too.

    This version (the latest right now) is a mod of Google Maps 4.2.0. Its free, so you cant go wrong. I thought more people would have seen this, or at least mentioned it. I have themed this modded app as well, and works great!

    Thanks for putting that link to Brut's maps. It loads way faster now and takes less space on the phone. Lots of other little options too.

    Your welcome. He updates his modded versions of the app more often than there are official releases. Lol I use his version all the time. Much faster.
