Huawei Ascend - Re-install Google Talk Instructions

    Make a mistake and uninstall Google Talk?

    Here's how to get it back:

    Step 1:

    Download, Extract, and Transfer the contents of this zipped folder to your phone. You can simply do this by plugging your phone in via usb, and dropping the rootexplorer.apk into your download folder.

    Link: [warez link removed]

    Then, go into file manager, Tap the SD Card Tab, go to download folder, and install the root explorer.apk

    Step 2:

    Download, Extract, and Transfer the contents of this zipped folder to the same download folder.

    Link: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1239859/Talk App and Services.zip

    Step 3:

    Go into root explorer, navigate to your SD card, then to the download folder where you will find the following files

    1 gtalkservice.apk
    2 talk.apk
    3 talkprovider.apk

    These are the 3 you just transferred over.

    Step 4:

    Long press on one of those, and click copy or move. Once you click copy, you will see your next option on screen is to paste. Click back 2 times, and scroll to the bottom and you will see system, click system, then click apps. Paste that into apps. Then go back to the download folder again inside your sd card, and do the same for the remaining two files. Once all 3 are moved or copied into the /system/app folder, reboot your phone, and try to download something, if you get the force close error still, then do a hard reset.

    I had to figure this out myself a few days ago. Took forever to find gtalkservice.Apk.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH Jazziette!!!!!!!!!!
    I signed up to this forum just to tell you that your instructions worked for me, another person who also uninstalled Talk. I will be sure to never attempt doing that again.

    The instructions above didn't work for me. Trying Hard Reset after backing up data with Titanium Backup to laptop.

    On the top right of Root Explorer you can change it R/W instead of R/O.

    It seems it doesn't anymore. Although the instructions may not be phone specific, are the files? If so, can anyone with a rooted Ascend please upload them for us? It would be super appreciated.

    If anyone out there knows if the files are not phone specific could you say so? :eek: That way I could just go and try and find them somewhere...

    get the app that he mentioned, APP MANAGER, and create one or edit one to metroPCS or cricket(although if your on cricket it should work)

    Once you download APN MANAGER:

    1) Select which carrier applies to you{CRICKET or METRO PCS}

    2) Activate APN

    3) Exit the APN MANAGER app.

    That's it.You should now be able to send/receive SMS/MMS.Now go into MESSAGING >SETTINGS & select notifications.This isn't actually necessary but to confirm that SMS/MMS is working properly. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
