    Hello folks,

    i got sick when i heard that Google Earth app is only runnging on 2.1
    That sucked for me. Then there was a workaround among our forums,
    to get it done with a rooted 2.0.1.
    NOW we have it for non-rooted phones.

    Get the APK in this thread:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-general-discussions/12239-new-apps-2-1-a.html

    Install it using astro.
    DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT DIRECTLY to your phone. Download to PC and
    copy to SD installing from there!!

    If it gets you any error saying "not installed" ignore it and check your main menu. The App IS THERE!

    and works ;)

    I installed it and it WASNT there. I went to try to run it from Astro and it said uninstalled so I installed it again and it worked.

    VERY cool application but it's HUGE... had to delete a bunch of stuff. More of a curiosity just like a real map of course.

    Only in that you don't need 2.1 or root to install, yes.

    Oh great! I wanted to put this on my phone when I wasn't rooted yet, but now I'm rooted! I just rooted my phone to actually put Google Earth on it. LMAO

    Anyway, thanks Tigger! :)

    Tig, I don't understand how to install this App. You say in your instructions not to download directly to phone. To download to PC and move to SD card then install. My assumption is placing it in the root of the SD. Well, wouldn't that be the same as downloading to my phone and move the file to the root of SD using Astro. It still doesn't work, I get a parse error. I tried battery pull and reinstall that didn't seem to work either. Are we to push the file using adb? Any help would be great, I'm on the fence to root, thinking about waiting for 2.1 but we'll see, we're getting all the 2.1 apps anyway, the only thing that is attracting me to root is OC.
