System Apps Update Pack for CyanogenMod 6
If you are running CyanogenMod 6 on your Nexus One, you may have experienced some issues with updating some of the system apps that come with the ROM.
Additionally, because system apps are stored on the data partition, this uses up precious space. To make things easier for you, XDA forum member unforgiven512 has put together an update.zip with the latest versions of all the system apps that come with CM6.

- Amazon MP3
- Google Maps
- Google Search
- Google Voice
- ROM Manager
- Street View
- Voice Search
To download the zip file and for more information, check out the forum thread.
