Install Google maps on Blackberry OS 6

Yesterday I was very much free and as usual I was exploring my Blackberry 9300, Because of some reason  I wanted to wipe the device while wiping  I ticked the 'installed application', before doing it  I noted down the names of all apps which where there on my BB. After restoring to factory settings I was trying to install the apps one by one and when it came to Google Maps I was totally dumb stuck. There is no option you can download Google maps from 'm.google.com/maps' (earlier I have done similar way). After a quite search on the web I came to following conclusions.
Recently Google has stopped its maps api to Blackberry and windows mobile devices. Its a very hard fact that hence forth no updates of google maps to blackberry users.
So I decided to share the knowledge here.
In this post you find the how to install the google maps on blackberry OS6.

Check list:
1. Make sure you have BIS or BES
2. Memory Card Installed.
3. Desktop or Laptop
4. Data Cable (to connect BB to PC)

Very simple steps you follow.
1. Download Google maps zip in your PC (Below Download Link given)
2. Connect the your BB to PC - connection method is 'USB Drive'
3.Extract the 'Maps v4.5.2 bb.zip' in your memory card.
4. Disconnect your BB from PC
5. In your BB open the app named "Files" (file manager) - >File Folders - >Media Card - >Google Maps (open extracted folder)
6. Open 'Gmaps.jad'
7. Click on 'Dowmload' button
8.It gets installed in two minutes.
9.Rest anything popups on your BB click on OK.
10.Click and run the Google maps application.

Come Back Story..!

Hi everyone.
Its been so long I stopped writing the blogs. Still have same not good writing skills :) I just wanted to tell a story this time.
A long time ago a family of four members lived in a small village. They were loving each other so much, helping each other in the work. there was a no sign of sorrow in their life. They were so happy. Everyone in the village is to feel so much good about them. One day so happened like this, It was a rainy day, Heavy lightening and thunder took the lead. the family in their small house were very scared, Mom told two kids not to open the windows and doors. Suddenly there is knock on the door mom went to see who is on the door step. she opens a door and scream louder. Kids were unaware what happened, they ran towards the front door and the moment they reach they started screaming.... My goodness it was dark the father just came inside the home with helmet on. He bought some snacks and they had it.

It was great..:) Just wanted to give some work to my fingers and brain.

There will be good post coming up.
 Thank you.
