    I got it to work!!! First, I restored an old backup of my /system. I then ran the scripts and got "sucess" after "sh pm uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps", rebooted, and it installed perfectly. I'm guessing it had something to do with me trying a different process before hand.

    I'm running Kang and it worked first time. Only issue was after the reboot the phone was slow as hell for like 5 minutes.

    From what I read in the comments, Google Maps 4.3 is slow as hell and all this work to get it on my phone prolly isn't worth it. Read the comments in the market... lot of not very satisfied Droid users.

    Sticking with 4.2 for the moment.

    Finally got it, and thru terminal emulator without anything else. The DF commands on the 4.3 fix blog for other rom worked.

    I think a lot has to be typos made by EU's, or the commands themselves are not set for the rom they are using. I made a couple myself trying this, but realized them and corrected. for one, if you dont have busybox, omit it in that command line. I didn't even have to reboot my unit afterwards for the install to go ok.

    Only using for 10 min, but do not see any slowdown on maps loading from 4.2 here, may retry after a reboot.

    Updte: are you sure the groups were talking about maps? I only saw about EARTH 4.3 slowing down some phones.

    Install Google Maps 4.3 on 2.2 Froyo!

    Instructions…
    *Note 1* – If you don’t have Terminal Emulator, download it from the market.
    1. Open Terminal Emulator and type in the follow commands:
    For JRummy ROMs:
    su
    mountsys
    rm system/app/Maps.apk
    cd system/bin
    sh pm uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps
    unmountsys

    For all other ROMs:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 dev/block/mtdblock4 system
    busybox rm system/app/Maps.apk
    cd system/bin
    sh pm uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps
    cd ..
    cd ..
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 dev/block/mtdblock4 system
    sync
    2. You can now attempt to install the Google Maps update.
    3. If it fails the first time, just cancel the download and try again. If it fails again, reboot and try.
    4. Done!

    How many different versions of commands are we going to see here? I think this is getting a bit confusing.

    I had not problem removing 4.2 or installing 4.3. 4.3 even worked really well, with no noticeable slow down. BUT...

    Within a few mins my phone started to freeze with a black screen and the softkeys lit. I had to pull the battery to get it to respond. 5 mins later it happened again.

    Once I uninstalled it stopped.

    I know some people were able to do the install just fine. I was completely unable to do it, would always get "install unsucessful". Its running pretty smooth for me
