I couldn’t install the Gmail.APK from the Android Market. It kept saying something about "installation unsuccessful".

I backed up and uninstalled using Titanium Backup, then I downloaded the APK and installed it.

Synced my accounts and good to go.

Yeah, I'm running KaosFroyo v31. Maybe upgrading to the latest version fixes it. I'll try it later.

If you get a signature failure when installing from market just do the following:

Code:
adb remount
adb shell
rm /system/app/Gmail.apk
pm uninstall com.google.android.gm-1.apk
it may need be /system/app/com.google.android.gm-1.apk or even /data/app/com.google.android.gm-1.apk

and you should be able to install fine from the market.

Running KaosFroyo v35-1, I kept getting "installation unsuccessful" errors when installing from the market or from this downloaded apk (Thanks a bunch, btw!)

Got it to work this way:

1) Using Root Explorer, renamed gmail.apk to gmail.bak in system\app\
2) Reboot phone
3) Ran the gmail.apk acquired here, though I assume that the market installation may work at this step, too.

I tried uninstalling it and then installing from the Market and it still failed. I had to install from the downloaded APK. I have no idea why.

I can confirm that the market installation works at this point. Thanks!

is it just me..or when I installed 35-1, I swear the new gmail came with it...or it auto downloaded from the market and I didnt realize it... but I just went to the market, did a search for GMAIL, and downloaded it which installed correctly.

When I loaded the "downloaded" one, it looked like the one that came with 35-1.

Did I miss something?
