    I was trying to install the new Voice Search from Google.
    Got the dreaded "installation Unsuccessful" messages
    Come here, see thread (in first post) of something similar with Chrome 2 Phone
    Do not know what Voice Search apk was called so asked here (Post 1)
    Used instructions from first post and information provided in Post 2 and evidently removed Google Search Widget (will want that back later :p)
    Complained here using street trash talk wanting more help. (Post 3)
    Followed instructions in Post 4 to remove Voice Search as instructed
    Got the dreaded "installation Unsuccessful" messages
    Came here and went "GAH!" (Post 5)
    You asked for more details of my problem. (Post 6)
    I give you details! (Post 7)


    btw, I do appreciate you continuing to try to help out.

    The last one did the trick for me. I opened up an adb shell. Followed the directions

    did a reboot and bingo it installs.

    Thanks pdroid.

    I had a backup of my ROM before I did anything today.

    I went back and did it step by step, and I got nothing. :(

    I had no problem download and installing the latest google Voice Search from the market without deleting the old Voice Search apk. After it installed I did delete the old Voice Search apk in /system/app and moved the new Voice Search apk in /data/app to /system/app

    How would I go about this?

    No luck, it did not find voicesearch.apk installed


    More ideas will be welcome.

    thanks, I was totally trying out the new app when I figured i better report back and give credit where due.

    NOW.....

    *GROWL*

    I am not sure why and have been searching a bit for the answer (I might just go ahead and reinstall Sapphire again after this) Voice commands are not working, just search. I cannot "navigate to" "send text to" "send email to" or anything, it all comes up as a search in Google, how do I go about getting it to obey!

    OBEY DAMN YOU!


    Help again?

    Could be the new google voice search / voice actions not working as you had hoped. Doesn't do much for me... lol but works ok I guess. Anyhow, check out the official google online demo and info in this blog: Google Voice Search

    Did it the ?hard? way. Went and reflashed Sapphire 1.0 and installed Voice Search first thing. Works fine now, all commands being recognized and such.

    Thanks all for the help.
