I can't install also. It said that package signature verification failed. But I guess its a gmaps error, because I already updated a few other applications.

Patience is a virtue you must learn, mate... Paul has already said he'll add the update tomorrow. I'm sure you can wait another day... :/

Personally I'd like to be able to update it without having to burn a new ROM.

I was able to update this morning with R8, but my R8 was baked with the kitchen without the included maps. So maybe it depends on the way how maps is installed (kitchen/market).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if google maps is in /system, it can't be upgraded.

So just baking without GMaps and then downloading it from the Market will work?

And why does Paul put it in /system anyway, any advantages this way?

Edit: anyone knows the package name of google maps?

We could use mcr console and remove it from /system

As Google Maps is a Google app then it can be updated, as said in my previous post, it updated fine on my stock 2.10.405.2 ROM...and Paul has it on system to save on space as it's large

r8 kitchen updated to latest Google Maps, Google Quick Search Box and Flash Player.

P

so no way to update without rebake ?

Tried also with removing from system (adb in recovery) - same error. Reinstalled old maps in /data again - still same issue.

EDIT: could not find the updated maps in the r8 kitchen ?

can't we just remove maps with clockwork and then install it again from the market? this way it should be updateable.

adb shell mount /system

adb shell rm /system/app/whatever.apk

Yes, that's the way, I think.

you can use android-sdk to access the phone via a "shell" in recovery-mode, where you actually are able to delete apps from /system (which can not be acessed read/write in normal mode).

BUT as i posted before: This did not help - maps from market still could not be updated/installed (throwing "not properly signed" error in logacat)

Here you go, just extract the APK from this ZIP file and use your favourite file manager to install

com.google.android.apps.maps.zip
