    I followed this, step by step:

    1) adb shell
    2) su
    3) mount -o remount,rw -type yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system (gives you read/write access to system files)
    4) cd /system/app
    5.A) rm maps.apk (if you want to delete maps all together)
    5.B) mv maps.apk maps.apk.bak (if you want to keep a back up. this renames the file and keeps android from seeing the file allowing you to install maps again from the market)
    6) mount -o remount,ro -type yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system (restores read only to system files)
    7) Reboot

    using method A, to remove Maps completely. Now, when I try to download it from the Market, it downloads all the way, and I get an 'installation unsuccessful' notification, saying "incompatible update."

    Anyone know a better way to install manually?

    Go to 4share and download the 4.1 maps apk.
