    Google Maps 4.3 Fix for Droid Froyo Users

    Google Maps 4.3 Fix for Droid Froyo Users


    On 06.22.10, In Root (unlock), Tips, by Kellex

    See that screenie? Thatís my JRummy Kangeraded Froyo Droid running the new Google Maps 4.3 which was released earlier today. Reader scrizzo just sent over a set of instructions I had yet to try that worked like butter. Seriously, I had tried the adb shell instructions out there, the .xml file update method, and couple of others with zero success. And then I received this magicÖ
    InstructionsÖ
    *Note 1* Ė If you donít have Terminal Emulator, download it from the market.
    1. Open Terminal Emulator and type in the follow commands:
    su
    mountsys
    rm system/app/Maps.apk
    cd system/bin
    sh pm uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps
    unmountsys
    reboot
    2. After your phone reboots, open the market and download Google Maps.
    3. If it fails the first time, just cancel the download and try again.
    4. Done!
    If this set of instructions still doesnít work for you, please drop the name and version of the ROM you have in the comments. Maybe we can pinpoint which methods are working for different ROMs.
    Questions?
    Cheers again scrizzo!

    My wife said I spent too much time on my Droid.
    So I bought her one. End of story...

    Instead of using mountsys and unmountsys, use these:

    mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system


    mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    Instead of using mountsys and unmountsys, use these:

    mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system


    mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    When I typed the first one nothing was said, but then I went to the next step and got an error that maps.apk was read only.

    Instead of using mountsys and unmountsys, use these:

    mount -o ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system


    mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    When I typed the first one nothing was said, but then I went to the next step and got an error that maps.apk was read only.
    Try these:

    mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    mount -0 ro,remount /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    I think Bayou just made a couple mistakes in his post

    Just replace mountsys and unmountsys with those scripts. I'm getting "failure" right after "sh pm uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps"
