Hello, please help me. I've screwed up my iPhone 3G. Now my Maps app won't work. Tap and open, then immediately crashes back to Home. I remember deleting com.apple.Maps.plist and MapTiles.sqlitedb from somewhere. Please help me! I've also modified the GMM.framework to according to instructions here: http://code.google.com/p/oranav/wiki/iPhoneOS30MapCaches

So which one do you think is causing the problem?

I would guess the deleting of the plist wouldn't help. You really should restore and don't delete files that you need. Why would you delete them anyway? What would be the benefit?

Hopefully you backed up your phone before messing around. If not, do so next time. It'll enable you to erase little mistakes like this.
Restore it and you should be fine.
Be careful what you play with.

No - restore from a backup will save a lot of his data!

May not be a good idea if the backup contains the settings that have been manipulated and just brings back the problem. It happens.
