I've put together an update.zip with the latest versions of all the System Apps that come with CyanogenMod 6.

This solves multiple problems:
  1. Allows you to update those apps that just don't want to (Street View, Superuser, etc)
  2. Updates to system apps are stored on the "data" partition. This uses up your available space. By flashing this update, the updated files will be stored on your "system" partition -- where they belong, instead of your "data" partitions, where the files get placed when you update from the Market.
  3. I'm not 100% sure, but I have a good feeling this is the final fix to problem #1. I believe this causes Android to update the signature associated with the app, "correcting" itself.

The updated apps
  • Amazon MP3
  • Chrome-to-Phone
  • Gmail
  • Google Maps
  • Google Search
  • Google Voice
  • ROM Manager
  • Street View
  • Superuser
  • TalkBack
  • Twitter
  • Voice Search

You can go ahead and download the file here: http://www.unforgivendevelopment.com/2010/09/25/cyanogenmod-6-system-apps-update-pack-09252010/

If you encounter any issues, or have any comments or anything, let me know.

Enjoy!

so if I have understand this correct, every time a update is available we should not update through market instead wait for you to update the pack and then flash through recovery? because when I checked market now, I don't see Maps or Voice Search installed even if they are installed and latest versions, if I update they will get into the data directory right?

I have a 2-fold question for you guys:

I have apps on the /data/app partition such as Vlingo, SetCPU, Calibration Settings, MusicMod, Twitter, etc. Many of these are root apps and some are widgets that I use. The phone shows 152.61mb used and 43.64mb free in this partition, fyi.

I also have a most of my apps on the /system/app such as Camera, Browser, Email, Gallery etc. All of these are the core system apps. The phone shows 110.55mb used and 34.45mb free.

(1) If I move all of the apps from /data/app to /system/app can I?
Looks obvious that I wouldn't have enough space on the /system/app partition!

(2) If I move just a couple of widgets from /data/app to /system/app to free up space, would the widgets still boot up normally when the phone reboots or would they have to be re-installed?

Thanks for the quick response Rori!
So I can move what I want to move to the /system/app and they will boot right along with the phone, however, the Market will no longer "see" them as installed on my phone, correct?

I understand that Clockwork is set to ignore signature checks. So, this zip should flash through Clockwork no matter what, but will only flash through Amon_RA's recovery with a proper signature.

There is an updated gapps over at cyanogenmod (Nexus One, Stable forum, downloads section) that is the full gapps bundle. Not sure about the signature situation, but if it's like the previous files, then it should be fine.
