    I'm surprised someone doesn't have an APK file of it yet.

    Edit:

    Okay I tried all methods and they failed, so I started messing around, and got it. Here's what I did:

    First and foremost; NANDROID - BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP. Can I say that again? Back. Up.

    I used Root Manager to remove Maps. I rebooted into recovery and wiped cache *5* times! Just to be like, paranoid-y safe.

    I then used the maps reinstall file that was floating around last week or so to reinstall Maps.

    Then I went to Settings > Apps >Manage Apps and uninstalled Maps the normal way. This was the first time the uninstall button was available to me.

    I rebooted into recovery and wiped cache again. Rebooted. Then went to market and downloaded Maps and lo and behold, it installed.

    I'm fairly sure that's what I did. I've been messing w/my phone all day so I may have done 64523 other things and it's all a haze, but I'm pretty sure those are the steps I took.

    Tried it all and nothing is working. All of the files listed to be removed are off the phone. Installation Error from market and apk. Thoughts?
