    Pretty sure there was a Maps 4.2 update.zip type file around for BB v0.1. Might try that to get Maps 4.2 back.

    I can't get 4.3 to install on my Droid FWIW.

    My wife had no issues with this update either. It seems to be an issue only for those of us who messed with our Droids. :(

    Well I believe it's people using the froyo update because I'm on 2.1 BB V1.0 and it worked fine.

    I'm assuming you delete this line:

    <shared-user name="com.google.android.apps.maps" userId="10040">

    I'm using the standard froyo themed with the ud theme but I don't have the market fix installed. New maps updated perfect for me.

    Yes. How do you get to it to delete it?

    I opened it up on my computer to find it easier, I haven't made the change myself.

    It's almost all the way down at the bottom.

    I don't know if you just delete that one line or what. I haven't done it myself, I just found it to share with those looking for it.

    Ok, this is a BARE BONES explanation. I am going to assume a LOT of stuff. Like mainly you know how to work ADB, WordPad and edit XML.


    launch a command prompt
    adb shell cp /data/system/packages.xml /data/system/packages.xml.org
    adb pull /data/system/packages.xml
    wordpad packages.xml

    FIND THE FOLLOWING:

    <shared-user name="com.google.android.apps.maps" userId="10028">
    <sigs count="1">
    <cert index="27" />
    </sigs>
    <perms>
    <item name="com.android.launcher.permission.INSTALL_SHORTCUT" />
    <item name="android.permission.USE_CREDENTIALS" />
    <item name="android.permission.GET_TASKS" />
    <item name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
    <item name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" />
    <item name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
    <item name="android.permission.CALL_PHONE" />
    <item name="android.permission.READ_CONTACTS" />
    <item name="android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS" />
    <item name="android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS" />
    <item name="com.google.android.apps.maps.permission.PUSH_MESSAGE" />
    <item name="com.google.android.googleapps.permission.GOOGLE_AUTH" />
    <item name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />
    <item name="android.permission.DISABLE_KEYGUARD" />
    <item name="com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES" />
    <item name="com.google.android.googleapps.permission.GOOGLE_AUTH.local" />
    <item name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <item name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
    <item name="android.permission.MANAGE_ACCOUNTS" />
    <item name="android.permission.VIBRATE" />
    <item name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK" />
    <item name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
    <item name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" />
    </perms>
    </shared-user>

    DELETE THAT.

    close word pad and say yes to save file
    adb push packages.xml /data/system/packages.xml
    adb shell chmod 664 /data/system/packages.xml
    adb reboot


    Since I am at work I can't tech support every question. Which means the rescue squad might need to lend a hand (sorry I did that to you guys ;) )


    SIDE NOTE:

    IF wordpad doesn't work, launch it manually and go find the file at the location your command prompt is at.

    IF this fails. You have a backup if you did the adb shell cp command. To restore:

    adb shell cp /data/system/packages.xml.org /data/system/packages.xml
    adb shell chmod 664 /data/system/packages.xml
    adb reboot
