    I have a UK milestone, but am in Slovenia. I've got used to not having access to paid apps in the market. What bothers me is that some of the free apps are missing from the market. Is there any solution for that? + Where could I find a version of the google maps with buzz?

    The problem is that paid apps are not your problem - protected apps are your problem. Many free apps are protected.

    I don't know that anyone has bothered to pull the APK for Google Maps 4.0 for Android. Here is the file directly lifted from /data/app on my phone. I do not know if it is installable like this - try it.

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    By the way, if you root your phone, you can install Market Enabler (I don't need it, but if you search, you'll find it...), which enables protected and paid apps for anyone. Apparently it works perfectly.

    Market Enabler or SyncMyPix? Because if you are root, you should definitely try Market Enabler...

    As far as I know, this update.zip will work perfectly:

    AllDroid - View topic - Milestone Root

    The UK 2.0.1 is a 1.14 version, and it still had the hackable recovery - meaning it does not verify the signature on an encapsulating zip file around the stock update. So any update.zip can be used, as long as it has been properly modified to just copy and set rights on su and SuperUser.apk.

    Maybe the version that you downloaded was corrupted? Try unzipping it on your PC/Mac/Linux system to see if it is a viable file.
