    sounds like you might just need to use adb root explorer or the like to remove the old maps apk you might have floating in system/app

    To fix this in the past I have gone into Settings, Applications, Manage Applications and deleted MAPS from there. Then reinstalled it. Reboot your phone to see if you can search now.

    you also need to remove com.android.maps before you can install maps again

    With Root Explorer rename /system/apps/Maps.apk

    Then go to Settings > Applications > Manage Apps > menu and Filter All > then scroll down to com.google.android.maps and long pressed and click uninstall.

    Reboot

    Install Maps

    Similar things happened to me when I installed 2.0.1 themes with xml files on top of UD8 (2.1). I had to restore to my earlier backup.

    1. Restore your phone using your latest nandroid.
    2. use Root Explorer and delete the /system/apps/Maps.apk (mount system R/W before, and don't forget to mount it R/O when done)
    3. REBOOT
    4. go to Settings > Mange Applications > Filter All > find the com.google.android.maps (something like that - turn phone in landscape so you can read the long names) and long press it and Unintall
    5. REBOOT again
    6. Go to Market and get Maps.

    Sounds like your phone is already screwed up. LOL

    I know when I was trying to flash the latest Smoked Glass ROM I had the zip file downloaded and uncompressed it on the phone. It used the wrong file extension of .tar instead of .tgz. SPRecovery recognized it and unpacked it and installed it anyhow. But all the wrong options and wrong kernel. The phone booted though. Looked like it worked. But I lost 3G completely. It was like it was operating in analog mode. And I could not get into the market place...could not log into my Google account. I could surf some web pages...just couldn't get into anything secure.

    Follow the above steps from HUMPA. It will make your world clean again.
