Magic Earth maps app won't open

Magic Earth stopped working on my phone.
When I try to open it I get the following message:
‘One or more resource files are missing. Please reinstall the application.’
This is something that I cannot do, we can not uninstall Magic Earth.
Any ideas? When I go to the ‘Apps’ app it only has the option to open it (which doesn’t work either), there is no option to update, reset or anything else.

Yes we can :wink: .

Else, an /e/OS update should install an updated version … but there’s not always an OS update coming shortly.

Thanks for that link, doesn’t look easy. How about reinstalling it? Those instructions said to just enter something in command line, but where would the app be to reinstall it?

the upcoming 0.22 will fix this, Maps / Magic earth fails to start on armeabi-v7a devices (#4708) · Issues · e / Backlog · GitLab


Sorry, if the issue filed at the GitLab is the source of your trouble (and it certainly matches your description), then what I said wouldn’t help until the bug is fixed anyway. If you’re in a hurry, you could try something else …
