    Looks like an update for Google maps was released today. I know the last update caused problems on BB... has anyone updated without any issues?

    Thanks

    I tried it, but downgraded back to 4.3 because the new version removed the ability to sort restaurants by category and it turned all the menus white. Thanks anyway.

    What error are you getting for the Maps update? Installation failed? I had the same problem until I wiped and reinstalled, then it worked fine. As for recovery, Rom Manager never works for me, I have to turn the phone off and manually hold X on boot.

    Are you using Clockwork or SP recovery?

    ROM Manager has issues lately (maybe FroYo related, maybe not). If you're still stuck, pull the battery, wait a minute or so and reinstall. It should boot to what you had before trying to update. If that was a success go to Clockwork and flash the alternate recovery (SPRcovery). Now slide the keyboard open, hold the x button and push and hold the power button (release the power when it starts to boot). You should be in SPRcovery. Do a simple nandroid backup Now if you don't have one. Wait for it to finish and reboot. Follow the guides for updates in SPrecovery (hacking section).

    Mine finally installed last night...and then I rolled it back. Did not like it at all...it took away the Labs option of "Popular Categories" in search, and then added the "Places" app separate, but even that was inferior with (for example) just restaurants as an option (where before I could search for what kind of restaurant) and took away the black backgrounds too.

    Sticking with 4.3 for now.

    Updated fine.
    Not sure why they created this new 'Places' app, when we already had google's Places Directory app (which still has more categories).
