Help Google Earth Won't Run

Thanks for reply. If what you suggest is true, doesn't that imply that Google Earth makes calls directly to the processor instruction set bypassing Android. I wonder why they would do that.
some apps use Native code (you can check by opening the .APK and seeing if there is a lib folder)
Apps like Google Earth, Firefox Flash, need processor functions not present in ARMv6 processors, and these processors are far too slow to emulate these functions
