    Google just released Car Home as a Market App. I tried downloading and installing and ran in to the same issue as other Google apps that we've had with Sapphire 1.1.* (Voice Search, Search).

    What would be the name of the apk and the command to remove the Car Home so we can download the new version?

    Thanks to all.

    from Terminal

    su
    sysrw
    rm /system/app/CarHomeGoogle.apk


    Then reboot and install from the market.

    Wingdo,

    Worked like a charm! Thanks.

    BTW - don't mind rebooting that much. The spinning sapphire boot screen is pretty slick!

    I like, though I removed the carlauncher apk too, went too far.... so the new one installed and never could open it.

    Went back to my nandroid backup of 1.1 (have one of 1.1.1 but didnt figure a change to that file being google) and replaced it, set perms, good to go.

    Yup, one step too far. CarLauncher is the file called when the magnetic sensor detects the car dock.

    Yeah, i sent this via tapatalk. You got a problem with that?
