What do you mean by "from within the SDK"? Do you mean from Eclipse?

If you are signing the APK with a different key (e.g., production
key), you need a different Maps API key to match.

The no-tiles symptom usually means one of the following:

-- you don't have an API key that matches the signing key

-- you don't have the INTERNET permission

-- your device/emulator does not have connectivity to the Internet
(e.g., airplane mode)

-- you are experiencing a tear in the fabric of space-time, and have
not recently looked out the window to notice that the world around you
is now a gray grid, and that in the distance the theme music to The
Twilight Zone is playing softly :-)
