    I deleted maps.apk from system/apps/.. someone posted the link to the 4.3 Maps.apk on androidforums, The link is a few pages back. Once downloaded I moved the 4.3 Maps.apk to the system/apps/. Then clicked on the Maps.apk file using root explorer and clicked install. Now all is well.

    Froyo 2nd release, no themes, market fix. Package not signed correctly error on install.

    So it may not be Froyo, but the market fix that did something?

    Odd that so many people are having issues and the 4.3 update downloaded and installed flawlessly on my Froyo.

    Wonder what's diff with mine...

    Someone posted this on droid-life, it worked for me
    Via adb:

    adb kill-server
    adb root
    adb remount
    adb shell rm /system/app/Maps.apk (then, back out of adb shell)
    adb uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps

    reboot

    Well, I can say the same there. Luckily it doesnt break 4.2 for me.

    I can wait for a fix, or an updated apk to push, or maybe a released Froyo!!!!!!

    This begs the question on updates (OT, but just for a sec ok?)...

    We now have automatic updating on Froyo, one can elect to manually update, or to automatically do it.

    HOW about if you don't want an update??? Hmm ??? How would one get it off your listing? That would now apply to GM 4.3 ...

    Example: mototorch, current update broken on Froyo, uninstalled, but I don't want to see update(manual) forever in my downloads ...

    Nice eh?

    I looked in Hacks, was there anything else to try on the 4.3 update yet?

    What exactly does back out of adb shell mean?

    Thanks! I got maps to install from the market. I deleted the apk file and followed Skulls directions.

    FWIW: I just used root explorer and deleted the text. Long press on the file and select Open in Text Editor. I then proceeded to delete everything skull posted. Saved and Exited by using the Menu Key. The one next to the Home key on your phone. I then rebooted and downloaded.

    If you attempt to do it this way I take no responsibility if you screw up.

    The only thing I'm bummed about now is that I don't have the uber cool maps icon that came with Nextheme.
