Here is the work-around to put it back on your phone. (cut and pasted from two different threads). This is the work around that everyone is using along with the summary of instructions. Once I had Ver 3 back on my phone-I went to the web> Google Maps for mobil and downloaded the new version 4.5.3 to the device and it replaced the earlier version. Works great! Hope this helps you. Good Luck! PS: Use the drop box as it is much easier.Link for download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i8w6jymjdv...ogleMap-v3.zip
[Update] Even better news: after first successful run of v3 you can update to v4.5.3 and it'll get back to work normally .
OTA link: http://dl.google.com/dl/mobile/maps/...GoogleMaps.jad
Worked great! To summarize the steps from the other thread:
- Download the zip file for Google Maps v3 to your PC
- Extract the zip file and copy the extracted folder to your device's media card
- Open the Media Folder, (on media card if you store it there) then choose Explore from the menu option
- Browse for the folder location and select GoogleMap-v3.jad
- Run version 3, decline the upgrade to version 4.5.3 and accept the terms
- Exit Google Maps, run again and allow the upgrade to 4.5.3. if offered.
It didn't offer me an upgrade> so I opened ver 3>closed ver 3> went to web on my phone and downloaded the newest version 4.5.3 to my phone.

I just pointed the browser on my phone to the above OTA link http://dl.google.com/dl/mobile/maps/...GoogleMaps.jad , "replaced" version 4.5.3 by version 4.5.3, rebooted, launched Maps, accepted the terms, and it's working fine. I did not need to downgrade to version 3.
