Default [Q] Detach apps from market

Is it possible to detach apps from market?

I have Brut Maps installed but the market says there is an update - i dont want this update as it will overwrite my brut maps.

So is there a way to remove maps from the market?

Cheers guys

Just 'untick' the auto update option on the Market for Google Maps

It is already unticked mate but still shows as update

And if there is more than one app to update and i click update all it will start to update maps aswell.

What about if i use root explorer and move the .apk from /data/app to /system/app?

Would that work?

It'll still show as an update, you can't turn it off...just have to be careful

i think you can use titanium backup to detach the app from market.. the free version may work. and you may need root too. can't verify as i use the donate version and already rooted.

once installed, long press the app and click detach from market. let me know if it works for you.
