    Nice guide Marshall0544, thanks.

    Sad that Google Maps does not update ‘out of the box’, but thanks for the instructions.

    My problem with this guide is that is written for a new Zopo phone. Howeve I have a phone fully in use (ZP500) which means that the packages.xml file is much more complex and It is practically impossible to find the exact lines to remove.
    Any tips on that?

    Dear Jos, take the package.xml file and put it on your desktop. With a program like notepad++ delete the rows as above and return it to data/system.When you put it in data/system.Check the permissions owner with the pull-down menu of “root explorer”:is very important.This guide I made with zopo 500 single core of my son ;)

    Muchos Gracias, помогло.

    No, it does not work. As stated by Jos, the file packages.xml is much more complex, and reference to maps are all over other applications. So after all the above mods the Play store still say that you cannot install Maps.
    And restoring back together the files and the lines in packages.xml results in no more Maps!
    I would say the procedure is highly unstable and very deprecated…

    MAPS UPDATE PROCEDURE FOR ZOPO 300

    - Phone must be Rooted
    - Download from PlayStore app Rom Toolbox – the free lite version will do
    - From Rom Toolbox select App Manager and find Maps
    - Keep pressing on Maps until the function menu is not displayed and select “Uninstall”
    - When you get the message “Uninstall completed”, install Maps from PlayStore

    Now, this is a clean, standard procedure…

    Hi,
    I have a big problem with our new ZP500: when i try to delete the maps.apk i get the message “the system is read-only”. Therefore I can´t delete nor change the preferences of the app.
    Phone is successful rooted, Android 4.0.3, 120810.ICS.V1.FWVGA.CN.COM.4P4

    Any ideas?

    • 30/10/2012 at 18:47thay

      Be careful by delete system apk.You must use a file explorer (root explorer work’s well) and enable read/write in the options of the program.Zopo is not responsible about issues after deleting system files make it at your risk

      • 30/10/2012 at 22:19Manfred

        Thanks for the fast answer.
        I don´t want to delete anything – in fact I only want to update Google maps. But since this nice app keeps saying i have to delete the recent version… So how can I do it when I have a read-only system that doesn´t allow a delete?
        Does it mean there is no sulution and I can only return the phone since I need the maps?

        In my ZP300+ that I bought at the same time Maps-update works fine.
