Download And Install Google Talk 1.3 With Video App On Android 2.3+

Now that Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is available for Google Nexus S, many of you might be willing to go for this update. This firmware update brings in some cool new features, one of which is the video chat for Google Talk.
For those of you who like to stay on your current Gingerbread firmware but would like to get the video calling capabilities of Google Talk, here is a way. Folks from XDA have extracted the Google Talk app of Android 2.3.4  from Nexus S and made it available for download.
You will have to be on Android 2.3+ firmware to install this app. Also you will need to have rooted Android phone and have ADB connection with the device in order to transfer the APK file onto it’s file system.
Disclaimer: We recommend you to back up your current Google Talk app before you proceed. We cannot be held responsible in case you brick your device or lose data. Proceed at your own risk.
1. Download Google Talk with Video Chat app for Android 2.3+ Gingerbread.
2. Connect your device to your Computer via USB cable and make sure if USB debugging (Applications –> Settings –> Development –> USB Debugging mode ) is turned on.
3. Use the following commands one after the other in the Command Prompt:

adb remount
adb shell mv /system/app/Talk.apk /system/app/Talk.apk1
adb uninstall
adb push /system/lib/
adb push Talk2.apk /system/app
The Google Talk app does seem to work for most people, though some reported in the developer thread that the other party could not hear or see their Camera images. Let us know in the Comments if this worked for you.
