    Noticed something interesting today when I decided to wipe my phone and reload Sapphire. As l sign in (i think, and with any rom btw) for the first time, the Droid instantly starts downloading updated the newer updated google apps (mail, maps, search, voice) successfully; Apps which if updated normally cause headaches throughout rom communities, as the user has to do something with a terminal or w/e to get the old ones off.

    Question is, is there a way to trick the system to run the market place updates at such a high system level as to harness this power and solve the issue once and for all?

    I have a rooted Droid so my experiences may be different that yours.

    Right i know about how normal apps will update, I'm talking about the recent problematic ones (Gmail, Google Search).

    Examples
    Cyanogen: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/koush/82522-gmail-app-update.html
    Sapphire: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/cvpcs/82434-official-gmail-update-market-wont-install.html

    People have problems with these, so they have to nuke the existing via root explorer, terminal, etc. However they update just fine upon the first boot/sync, where any system apps on the market are instantly updated without user interaction. That is what I'm curious about initializing.

    Thanks for the clarification! I've been running Sapphire for several months and I've not experienced any issue with Gmail.
