That great wail of anguish you may have heard recently was from iPod Touch users who upgraded their firmware to version 2.2 — and suddenly discovered the Google Maps app no longer updated Street View.

But don't cry too hard — just follow these simple steps (provided by iPod Touch Fans site member "timmyj9") to correct that:

1. get this file via ssh: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N45AP.plist
2. convert to xml at http://iappcat.com/plist/bin2xml
3. add




4. save then using that website again reconvert to binary
5. rename original file N45AP.old
6. copy new N45AP.plist in (make sure permissions are 644)
7. reboot ipod

Above laundry list also comes with a caveat: "all new Maps features work however you get a searching for service
(replaces the word ipod in the top left) and waiting for activation
message that pops up occassionally, music settings disappear also music
slot in prefs disappears" [sic]
