    Ok so google just announced the new Voice Search and Google Search apps, that work only on Froyo (2.2). I'm on that OS (yeah!) but can't install the apps? Anyone have some clues?

    Neither app can install successfully. I'm on CelebFroyo 1.9

    ok resolved my own problem, apparently if you have the older versions on your custom ROM, remove them, reboot, then install them and it works.

    /system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk

    /system/app/VoiceSearch.apk

    I choose to rename the files with .bak in case the new ones didn't work and had to go back. but its safe to delete.

    you can do via adb commands:

    adb remount

    adb shell rm /system/app/GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk
    adb uninstall com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox

    adb shell rm /system/app/VoiceSearch.apk
    adb uninstall com.google.android.voicesearch

    Absolutely love the new voice app! I can't believe how accurate it is.

    For 2.1 users feeling left out, Vlingo 1.5 is now FREE in the market. (Used to be $10.) Does the same stuff, and it's available for Android 2.0 and 2.1.

    Vlingo is great for voice dialing via Bluetooth, way better than stock Nuance
