Can't Update Google Maps on Android Rooted Phone
Bummer. Every time I tried to update Google Maps via the Market it wouldn't install it. Throwing out an error about package signature or what not. It appears that it just does not work to update an Android stock app on a rooted phone. What then? You will first have to delete/uninstall the Google Maps packages, then just simply go back to the Market, search for the package, and install it. Bam; done.
Below are the commands to use from your ADB shell to remove the package.
