Copied the following onto my Android's SD card:
Unplugged my phone and waited for it to prep the SD card
Fired up the application Terminal Emulator
Typed the following commands:
suYour phone may prompt you to allow or not allow this, allow it obviously, otherwise wait until you see a # before continuing to the next command
mount -o remount,rw /systemNext it's time to copy the build files into your system directory, but first you should backup the originals just in case.
cp /sdcard/build.prop /system
cp /sdcard/build.sapphire.prop /systemRemove the existing Google Maps app
when i did this it siad it did not exist but i just keep going!!!
rm *maps***END OF UPDATE**
All done with this part, time to reboot.
rebootGetting force close prompts for Google Voice? Yeah, go ahead and do the force close. Be sure to wait until your phone is done booting.
Now it's time to actually install the new app. So again, open up Terminal Emulator and type the following code:
suAgain, allow this command and/or wait until you see a # character
mount -o remount,rw /system
install /sdcard/Maps.apk /system/app/At this point, I couldn't get things to work like the second post I linked earlier, so I'll did this command...
rebootGetting force close prompts for Google Voice again? Close the sucker and wait until your phone is fully booted.
Ok the app is installed and you may be thinking you're good to go, but you aren't. It's still not working for you like it wouldn't work for me. Do you have Google Voice installed before you did all this stuff? Most likely!
Go into your phone's settings and Manage Applications
Uninstall Google Voice
Fire up the Market and search for Google Voice
Install Google Voice
Reboot your phone (You can do this by holding the power button and select "reboot phone" or the long way through Terminal Emulator)
Run the Map app (now you may have your old address in there that you tried earlier, never fear. Just clear the map from the map menu)
Put in some directions like you normally would
You should see the option for "Navigate" after it gets the directions. Click it.
Accept the installation of the voice guide thingy
You're done! Revel in the awesomeness!
Get a beer and laugh at your friends with an iPhone
