    Thank you sir...

    EDIT:

    Your upgrade isn't installing for me even after uninstalling the official update and rebooting the phone. Tried it both with Root Explorer and Astro. It just gives me an error of "Application Not Installed".

    Got any ideas?

    See my reply to the same question you posted in the other Thread.

    FYI, duplicate support questions in different threads just slow down my support and ability to respond faster to questions. While I was replying to this duplicate I could have been answering someone elses question.

    I'm actually having problems too. I've flashed the zip twice and rebooted to find 4.4 still.

    Same here Dave. I had not installed the update and I went to your folder and downloaded the update and applied it. Under "about" in my maps it still says 4.4 and the market says I can still update. Just a heads up.

    Sorry about the duplicate Dave.

    Here's my latest:

    I must be doing something wrong here. I downloaded the zip from your site and renamed it to update.zip, rebooted into recovery and selected Apply update.zip. The phone reboots and Maps is still at 4.4.

    Rebooted into recovery again and this time chose Apply zip from SDcard. Chose the update.zip and applied it. Rebooted the phone and its still showing 4.4 for Maps.

    I unzipped and pushed the maps.apk to /system/app and now Maps is gone all together even though the apk still resides in /system/app

    Any other ideas?

    I read the post, and the only place I have the maps.apk is in /system/app. When I look in /data/app there is no reference to map.

    Also, what do you think the reason is that others are having the same problem installing it as me?

    Answer to 1st question.... did you look in the Manage applicatiosn as instructed? Even if the apk file is deleted the data file can still be there and "uninstalling" as instructed will help


    Answer to 2nd question... the same reason that most aren't having problems...experience.

    Dave, there's definitely something wrong with the .zip. I tried 3 times and it doesn't replace the 4.4 version. I ended up extracting the apk and pushing it manually.

    Yes, I did that the first time around before I encountered the problems.

    I don't consider myself an expert, but I'm definitely not a n00b.

    I'm going to have to wait until I get home to reinstall the themed 4.4 app and then try your update again to see what happens.

    Ok, I just got home and pushed maps.apk (4.4) to the phone and made sure it worked.

    This time I didn't even bother installing the 4.5 update through recovery mode. I extracted the apk and placed it on my SD card and then pushed it to /system/app using terminal emulator and it works perfect now.

    Looks great... thanks!

    Weird!!! Will do some more checking on this... I also just uploaded fresh copies for DX and D2 just in case, the have "r2" in the file name.

    Glad you got it working, I put a lot of work into this new Maps and wanted everyone to be able to get it.

    I just get a 404 Error when I follow the link that's supposed to lead to the Maps 4.5 update file. All the other links on the downloads page seem to work just fine....

    Okay, Dave, I downloaded the new file you put on the server and everything worked this time. Hooray!!! Must have been something wrong with the last file as I installed exactly like I did the first time. dancedroid
