    Sorry if this has been posted else ware but I have not been able to find it nor figure it out.

    Is there a way to install the newest map app from the Nexus One with multi-touch onto a non-rooted Droid? I have the new gallery app with multi-touch working on it but can't figure this map one out. Anybody get this to work? Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Just root your phone. You'll be able to do more with it. Just don't be afraid. You have to have root access for the multitouch maps because you have to transfer a .jar file to system/framework

    Thanks for the response, I think I am gonna go ahead and root it. I've been jailbreaking my ipod touch since the early days, but I'm a bit nervous for some reason about rooting my phone. I know I should be fine though. What rom would you reccommend?
