    For some reason I am not able to install the new google street view from the market. I had a previous version on my phone, so when I got my first unsuccessful install, I uninstalled street view with TI. but even after i uninstalled it I still get an error trying to install the new version from the market. anyone else get this issue or know how to solve it?


    ps. I already tried clearing the data for google maps, didnt help


    EDIT SOLVED: ok I got mine to work, I just did a reboot (after I unistalled the version that was on my phone with Titanium backup) and it installed fined

    I can't install it either. I don't have titanium installed, never have. What can I do to get street view working?

    Nevermind. Apparently it is actually built into the updated Maps anyway

    It's not, it works along side of the maps.apk but in the Market it is a different application "street view" :)

    go to /system/app and rename street.apk to .bak

    reboot and retry the install of street view from the market.

    How? I dont have root explorer, but am not afraid of command line.

    I did:

    cd /system/app
    mv Street.apk Street.bak
    failed on 'Street.apk' - Read-only file system

    sudo mv Street.apk Street.bak
    sudo: permission denied

    I deleted street.apk, rebooted (actually had to reboot twice, lost my data connection for some reason) and then was able to install from market. Works fine!

    You need to mount rw before making changes.

    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system ( I believe this is correct)

    Don't forget to go back to read only (ro) after your done.

    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    In Sapphire we have scripts to handle the read/write and read only remounts.

    sysrw
    sysro

    By the way, I deleted the apk - not sure I see the point in renaming.

    I won't delete, and recommend rename to others when troubleshooting their issues by forum, as so they have something to get back in case we fail to resolve the issue.

    I renamed my street.apk to .bak first, rebooted, and after it installed, and was functional, then deleted.

    I find it better so we avoid those posts of "I even deleted the file and now ..." :)

    Could save your life sometime hehehe.

    I got it installed, however I still dont have a stand-alone app. And a long-press in Maps doesnt bring up the option either. Not that I'll ever use the app, but its become personal. What next?

    That's fine - you still deleted it, just exercised a bit more caution than I.

    Space in /system/app is precious - no need having useless clutter in there, IMO.
