    How Can I Install Google Maps Library on a MC40 (JB)?

    Khai-Van Phu

      Hi Android Users,


      I would like to use application Tasker on my MC40 running JB OS. Unfortunaly the installation fails because of the lack of the Google's Maps Library.


      adb install Tasker_4.4u2.apk

      2573 KB/s (2336015 bytes in 0.886s)

              pkg: /data/local/tmp/Tasker_4.4u2.apk



      I do have the Google Maps Lib in a zip file format and its purpose is to copy two specific files in Android files architecture:

      • com.google.android.maps.jar > /system/framework folder
      • com.google.android.maps.xml > /system/etc/permissions folder


      My MC40 is not rooted hence no right to write to folder /system/framework and /system/etc/permissions folders.

      The other alternative I see is to install the zip file in recovery mode using "apply update from ADB" but from what I understand the file has to be numerically signed.


      So I am looking for a way to copy these files into my MC40.


      Any comment or idea welcome.
