    I saw a thread

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/cv...et-install-unsucessfull-sapphire-1-0-0-a.html

    about Chrome to Phone not installing and thouht that this might be the same situation but am unclear as to what the Voice Search app might be called.

    I also tried to install Bgill55's themed apk but it would not install as well.


    Any help?

    sysrw
    rm /system/app/VoiceSearch.apk
    sysro

    easier if you fork over a few bucks for Root Explorer, btw.

    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

    i had to delete 2 apks in /system/app before it would install on my nephews phone, they were voicesearch.apk and VoiceSearch.apk. not sure why there was 2 but either way it worked.

    How would I go about this?

    No luck, it did not find voicesearch.apk installed


    More ideas will be welcome.
