    Even easier than finding com.google.android.apps.maps.

    Open up a terminal emulator and just type "uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps"

    Just open maps once you get the new version installed and goto /menu/more/sign in. It should put a promt in your message bar, choose allow and you should be good to go.

    This worked for me, went the cheap route and mounted the volume through the terminal emulator, THANKS!!

    Just a couple of things was different for me:

    *steps 1-4: If you are going the cheap route and mounting the volume through the terminal be aware that you are using a linux based system and everything is case sensitive. Spent a few minutes trying to figure out why Maps.apk wouldn't delete until I realized I wasn't capitalizing the M

    *step 2 - Instead of the folder /system/apps my folder was named /system/app So if your phone has app instead of apps don't be scared just navigate to the folder via terminal or root explorer and confirm the file is there.

    *step7 - When you're looking for the correct file to delete my maps file didn't say 0.0mb on the side, said something like 2.0mb. It wasn't until I looked at the details of the file that I saw the data size was 2.0mb but the program itself was 0.0mb


    These are very minute details but for users that follow guides to the letter these details can help when they feel they are stuck. :)

    in terminal type
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    rm /system/app/Maps.apk
    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    reboot

    go to settings manage applications menu filter all look for .com.google.application.maps or something like that. its like0.0KB... uninstall.

    go to market install maps. done.

    sign in problem is this, open maps, menu, more, sign in, "!" show up in notification bar, allow google to sign you in to maps. wait 2 seconds. close maps use task manager to kill all applications. re-enter maps and your now signed in. done.
