    So I realized today that I wanted to get rid of the Google Talk app and icon in my drawer because I've never used it and never will.

    I got rid of gtalkservice.apk/odex, Talk.apk/odex and TalkProvider.apk/odex from /system/app

    I'm realizing that it was probably stupid to get rid of all these, and I'm wondering if any of these were crucial to any other process..? I'm having trouble finding Google Voice, so I'm guessing it had something to do with that.

    Do these apps/odexes serve any vital purpose other than google talk? I have them all backed up so it's not a problem but it'd be nice to know.

    Thanks!


    New info: When I rebooted, com.google.process.gapps FC'd instantly, but everything still seems to be working fine...

    I made the same mistake!

    To correct the problem, do this:

    1. Download the Android 1.6 recovery image @ HTC - Developer Center

    2. Open up the recovery image via WinRAR, WinZip or whatever

    3. Locate gtalkservice.apk and ImProvider.apk in \system\app

    4. Copy those files to your SDCARD and then unmount when done.

    5. Go into Terminal Emulator and enter these commands:

    su
    mount -o rw,remount /system
    cp /sdcard/ImProvider.apk /system/app
    cp /sdcard/gtalkservice.apk /system/app
    reboot

    The phone will return back to normal. This works on any type of ROM!

    Let me know if it works!

    i've run into this same problem.. but i still can't get the FC to stop.. i deleted the .odex originally and i didnt back that up but i have everything else as far as .apks go. tried doing the "cp path/file " thing but its not recognizing cp??
    i havent really been able to use the phone much but the FC pops up randomly..
