Project Description



I am looking for someone who can provide a program or procedure or script and/or step-by-step instructions on how to remove, block or disable Google Maps on an iPod touch. I realize if the iPod is updated it may restore Google Maps. That's fine. I just need a procedure or program or script that can be used whenever needed to disable or remove Google Maps. It doesn't have to be pretty or elegant. Perhaps there is a way to modify the OS or extend the Parental Controls. I am already blocking the Internet using the Parental Controls, but there is no option for blocking Google Maps. Specifically I would like to block Street View in Google Maps. But completely blocking or removing Google Maps would be fine too.

My last project was canceled by [url removed, login to view] Admins because I used a word that starts with an "h" rhymes with backer. ;) I want to make it clear that I am not interested in doing anything illegal. I just want to find a way to modify my son's ipod touch to make it more "child friendly." There is actually some crummy content visible in Street View. So, the goal is to, at minimum, block Street View.

I have also learned that there is a practice called "jail breaking." I would rather not resort to that. It would be *better* if the goal could be accomplished without "jail breaking." Tell me what is possible and what you can do to help.

I am thinking this is an easy $30 for a good programmer. :) Maybe that is you!

Thank you for considering my project. I look forward to your bid.

Regarding payment. I propose that when you have a solution, I will put money in escrow. And once the solution works on my end, I will release the funds to your account. Please see my feedback and you will see that I am trustworthy. If you do not like these terms, please propose your alternative.

Kindest Regards,
