    Steel Droid 3 will not let me update to the newest Google Music App. I'm not sure if this is a steel droid problem however i switched back to my none safe system on safestrap and everything update perfectly fine. So I think this may be a bug of some sort.
    Just wondering if I'm the only one

    It isn't a Steel Droid issue. Ran into the same problem on the stock ROM.

    Just delete the Google Music apk off your phone and then go back to the market to do a fresh install. Fixed it for me.

    I am assuming you are using one of the leaked versions of the music.apk? That is what I had when I ran into this issue. I would assume it doesn't like seeing the "unofficial" (unsigned?) apk and refuses to update on top of it. Not 100% sure though.

    I try and uninstall the apk and it doesn't even present me with the option to uninstall it...I'm assuming i should just navigate in root explorer and delete that apk from the system but i don't want to mess anything up...

    google market support regarding the new google music not updating on my bionic....

    this is the email i received from google music team regarding the new google music not updating on my bionic...

    Hi Reuben,

    Thank you for your note. If you receive the "Package file was not signed
    correctly" error, this is because your device is not on a user build. If
    your device is on a "userdebug" build with "test-keys" in the build
    description, the Music Beta update will not be able to be installed from
    Android Market at this time.

    If you have any further questions or concerns, please respond to this
    email land let me know. Have an incredible day!

    Regards,

    Dave
    The Google Music Team


    i did install one of the leaked bionic updates, so i guess this is the reason why i get this "Package file was not signed
    correctly" error???

    Your 100% right, I'm on StealDroid and had the same problem. I removed the google music apk, from system/app and rebooted, then downloaded the new one from the market and it worked like a charm.

    I tried installing the new Google Music, also. Same thing you guys got. I'm on CM7 at the moment. I installed the leaked 4.0.1 Google Music. I tried uninstalling it, rebooting, and installing the new Music but it still won't let me.

    Did you remove the apk from system/app first? It is the one that says (music).

    Well, I used System App Remover, but I'll remove it through /system/app and see if it works.

    Ok, I got it working, but how I got it working is a bit tedious.

    I downloaded Google Music onto my OG Droid, plugged it into my laptop and used Droid Explorer to go into /data/app and copied the Music.apk and placed it onto the desktop of my computer. I then Plugged my Droid 2 into the laptop, enabled Memory Card Access, then copied and pasted the Music.apk onto my SDcard. I then used the following commands in Better Terminal Emulator to swap a few things around:


    - Remount /system as rw in Terminal Emulator/ConnectBot ("mount -o rw,remount /system" OR "sysrw")
    - Remove Music.apk from /system/app ("rm /system/app/Music.apk")
    - Copy Honeycomb Music.apk to /system/app ("cp /sdcard/download/com.google.android.music.apk /system/app/Music.apk" - Your path to the Honeycomb APK may vary)
    - Set permissions on Music.apk to 0666 ("chmod 0666 /system/app/Music.apk")
    Note: At this point, you might start getting force close messages for the music process. Ignore them. It might help to clear data for music in "Manage Applications" under the "All" tab.
    - Using a root-capable file browser, navigate to /system/app and tap Music.apk to install it. It seems redundant, but it's necessary.


    These commands I got from this thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/cyanogenmod/132175-honeycomb-music-app.html
    I rebooted and everything is working great now. :) :icon_ banana::icon_ lala::icon_ banana::icon_ lala::icon_ banana:

    Btw, those commands are how I got the previous music app installed. The leaked (at the time) 4.0.1 music app.

    no luck for me, I manually deleted the app using root explorer (and did a reboot) attempted to dl the app for the market and got the error "app already exsists" then just manually reinstalled the .apk and now I am back to square one (error package signed incorrectly)

    I got the new version to install.
    I uninstalled the version that came with SD3 with titanium backup, rebooted and downloaded the new version from the market. It worked fine for me.
    Running SD3 on my Droid 3...
