    I have rooted the phone and did not have a problem with installing apps. I deleted myspace and talk. a few days later when i download an app its stuck at starting download it just hangs there. Of course I though I backed up before I deleted anything and didn't. So I though a hard reset would fixed but didn't and removed all the apps I had installed. Any thoughts, thanks

    there have been reported issues of removing the google talk app from the phone which causes the market to hang, unable to make calls force closes...etc... you may need to restore the google talk app. i will edit my post later and give you the correct directory structure. let me know if you need the files and i will upload them.

    here are the links to the files you need:

    Gtalk.zip those 3 files need to be placed in the /system/app folder
    com.google.android.gtalk.zip those files need to be in the /system/framework folder
    RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting
    RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting

    extract those files to the root of your sd card unmount from pc and execute these commands:

    yes your run exit twice in a row in those steps after modifying permissions and remounting the /system folder as read and write and read only

    make sure you use the correct case when using those commands

    post back with the results

    could you please reupload com.google.android.gtalk.zip (or upload to another hoster that allows unlimited downloads)? Made the stupid mistake of deleting Google Talk :-(

    I just noticed that the 2 files in /system/framework are actually still present on my Phone. So I installed the 3 others as per your descriptions but it did not help. Google Talk is listed as installed again but it doesn't connect, neither does Market work :-(
    Any other ideas besides flashing a new image?

    I had this issue with v8 (right after upgrading from v6) with gtalk still on my phone but when i went to open it nothing happened, did a hard reset, gtalk worked, market worked and i still had v8, i think the update causes this issue.

    Unfortunately i currently do not have access to those files as my computer is currently in for repairs. however if you check on the Ally V9 SW Update thread you can follow the instructions there to downgrade to v6 and back up to v8 or up to v9 and it will put gtalk back on there.

    theres the link to the post for upgrading to v9 the v6 instructions follow

    I have in my great wisdom also deleted gtalk from my Captivate. I have no backups so now after a factory rest I have a stock captivate with no ability to download apps. The phone works, but no market. I see what has been posted on the thread but I am a bit of a novice (should not of rooted phone). I need to reinstall gtalk so my phone can move forward. How can I do so?

    You will have too find a gtalk .apk for your phone and install it manually.

    Is there anywhere I can get the files linked above (edit to clarify: the gtalk ones)? The files are no longer available there.

    Thanks much.
