    I completed the root process which has given me access to several apps that i wanted but now I'm having issues with several previous apps that ran great. Google maps force closes every time now. And a few games by Storm8 no longer work at all.

    I'm on 2.1 ota. All apps worked fine before root. Any suggestions.

    It sounds like he didn't flash a ROM; he's on the 2.1 that came with root.

    I didnt change the rom. I was content with the verizon 2.1 ota. I wanted root mainly for wifi tether. However I know the more i mess with this phone the more likely i will change the ROM.

    I have already attempted to uninstall and re-install the apps with no success, same problems. And now with google maps when i attempt the install it says "Installation error: Package file was not signed correctly"

    ???

    Look to see if the apps write any "config" data or settings and be sure to remove that too. Looking on my phone, I don't see anything in my ~/ directory for Maps.

    Which is rather "old" now, isn't it ? This ROM came out right after leak v1 was out, as I recall.

    He should still be able to get the up-to-date Maps app from the market though. If the problem is solely with Maps and not a combination of an older ROM and Maps, the problem may go away.
