    Found this today, and it works.

    Note 1* – If you don’t have Terminal Emulator, download it from the market.

    1. Open Terminal Emulator and type in the follow commands:
    For JRummy ROMs:
    su
    mountsys
    rm system/app/Maps.apk
    cd system/bin
    sh pm uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps
    unmountsys


    For all other ROMs:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 dev/block/mtdblock4 system
    busybox rm system/app/Maps.apk
    cd system/bin
    sh pm uninstall com.google.android.apps.maps
    cd ..
    cd ..
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 dev/block/mtdblock4 system
    sync
    2. You can now attempt to install the Google Maps update.
    3. If it fails the first time, just cancel the download and try again. If it fails again, reboot and try.
    4. Done!
