    you have done nothing but got rid of my google talk completely from my phone.
    WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET RID OF THE GOOGLE TALK COMPLETELY

    • Aroen

      Yea same here, what gives? Followed directions and my talk disappeared completely! Please advise, thank you.

  • @daryll

    Well it worked for me. As always, I’d recommend backing up your ROM first.

    I tested it out from phone to pc. My pc was only able to show the video its camera and not from the phone, but the phone was able to show video from both.

    The app is a little buggy and was forced closed often. No issues to report if I only use the text feature only.

    FYI: I’m using CyanogenMod 7 running on a HTC Evo.

  • lenny

  • Rob Drake

    i have a samsung galaxy tab 2.3.3. gingerbread.

    I flashed the zip file and rebooted. The process was confirmed as done the icon was not on my desktop so i use file expert to place the shortcut. when i tap the icon i get ‘This is a system application.’if i attempt to install it aborts the installation

    any help from here. appreciate it.

    I have an HTC Desire (mytouch 4g) with cyanogenmod 7.x installed.

    I used Clockwordmod+ROM Manager to install this file and it appears to work just fine, but google talk doesn’t change. I can still use google talk just fine, but I can’t start a vid chat with a friend who has a nexus s. The only thing that might be the problem is I’m installing the .zip from within folders (meaning not at the root of the sdcard).

    • John

      I tried installing from root of sdcard. No go. Am I missing something?

  • AJP

    installed via recovery mode. Voice calls work, but no video option (I get the microphone icon but not the video one)

    any thoughts?

    Samsung Galaxy S 2.3.4

    recovery flash didn’t work on Blandroid. I used file expert to copy apk to system/apps and the lib file to system/lib. Remember to check permissions also. I set permissions the same as other system apps.works well.thank you.
