Since the ROM is odexed, and I wouldn't want to slow down the system by adding any deodexed APKs into the mix, I have a "better" method for installing Footprints, so that it ends up on /data (or your EXT partition, if you're using a2sd):
- Install the Footprints system files (flashable zip attached to this post)
- Download the Footprints app & widget APKs (from this post), and install.
That should get you working and uninstallable Footprints. If anyone has issues, let me know.
P.S. As far as Locations goes, the version I'm currently trying to use performs a device ID check, so, while it installs, it Force Closes. If you open the Locations Car Panel, and go to Map Settings, the units automatically adjust themselves from Metric to Imperial, which fixes it in Footprints. But it's a LOT of FC'ing to get there, and the Locations app itself is unusable. I'm going to look for an older version without the Device check, and see if I can get it working a bit more smoothly, for anyone that wants to try it.
Update on Locations - SUCCESS!!
This will follow the same procedure as Footprints above. The only caviat is that there is one APK that must be installed to system, and it is deodexed. Also, in total, Locations will take up about 20MB of space on /system, so if you want to use this, make sure you have ample space there (which you should).
One other thing - this will install a 3rd Car Panel in your app drawer, so you'll probably want to get rid of one or both of the other ones.
So, here are the full instructions (Note: you will need to have installed the Footprints system files for this to work properly. If you choose to keep Locations, the Footprints app & widget can be uninstalled, as Footprints is integrated into Locations):
- Install Footprints system files zip
(if not already installed)
- Install Locations system files zip (Direct Dropbox Link)
- Install Locations APKs attached to this post.
This will also give you the option in Settings (under Location) to Integrate Google Navigation into Locations, which is highly convenient, since Route 66 isn't free.
