    I'm very confused on what to do with that but I've found a more simple process:
    1) opened the app Root Explorer ($1 in the app market)
    2) navigated to /system/apps and made the folder Read/Writeable
    3) longpress on maps.apk to rename the maps.apk to maps.apk.bak (remove it if you wish...I don't like deleting things)
    4) made the folder Read/Only
    5) rebooted
    6) menukey > Settings/Applications/Managed Applications/ menukey > filter > all
    7) located com.android.google.apps.maps which has a size of 0.00b
    8) clicked it and uninstalled
    9) went to the market, located and installed maps.
    10) enjoy

    free solution:
    Open Android Terminal Emulator and replace steps 1-4 with the following steps:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    rm /system/apps/maps.apk
    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    the only thing is that when i use terminal emulator it says maps.apk is not even found
