    Hi all

    I recently purchased a google nexus s from best buy, and as i started exploring android 2.3, i realized that google maps was not updated to the new version 5.0

    I opened marketplace and downloaded the new maps 5.0. It downloaded without any issues, however the installation failed without giving any errors or clues.

    So i searched everywhere and almost everyone suggested to uninstall the current google maps and install the new one. So i uninstalled maps using Titanium Backup, restarted the phone, and tried installing maps 5.0 without any success.

    I also tried reinstalling the previous version without any success either. So im stuck now with no google maps and i dont know what to do.

    I have a rooted Nexus s
    Android 2.3 Gingerbread

    If anyone have any idea how to fix this please let me know
    Thank you for your help in advance

    I got it working,
    what i basically did is reset my phone and erased everything. Once the phone restarted i was able to install maps and everything else without any trouble.

    Thanks for your replies
