Many of you will have had this issue – you go to Google+ open the action bar and press Locations, then all you see are peoples faces on a grey background – no world map…
The issue will soon become more apparent as people are forced to use Google+ locations as a replacement for Latitude which is being retired on 09 August 2013.
But for you root users there is a relatively simple fix available, read below to find out how – There is a link to a flashable update.zip file at the bottom of the article.
[toggle title=”Step 1″ state=”open” ]Move com.google.android.plus.apk (or similar name) from /data/app
DO NOT REBOOT – if google+ force closes, ignore it[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Step 2″ state=”open” ]Move the libs (not the directory) from /data/app-lib/com.google.android.apps.plus
[toggle title=”Step 3″ state=”open” ]Reboot[/toggle]
Update.zip to flash this for you in recovery (for you lazy people), just flash and reboot.
