Gtalk and Yahoo! BlackBerry clients updated

101 Comments

GtalkAs if Facebook wasn’t enough yesterday, we also got a Gtalk and Yahoo! chat client update up to version 2.0. After installing Gtalk here, there are decent upgrades, mainly displaying profile pictures, as noted by Robb, but I’m sure there’s plenty of other new features there that regular Gtalkers will readily spot. You can pick up the new version of Gtalk and Yahoo! Messenger over the air at http://mobile.blackberry.com on your mobile browser.

    Thank you Jason!

    I am very disappointed about how both Blackberry and Yahoo! guys are helping out users solve this. I spent a lot of time searching both sites for helpful info. Zero results!

    Thank God there are search engines and people willing to help!

    I know that some people have been having problems with installing the new GTALK 2.0 on the Blackberry. I have a 8100 and figured out that if you update the software on the Blackberry GTALK 2.0 will work. The software must be 4.2.1 or greater for GTALK 2.0 to work. Once you update the software you might have to download GTALK again.

    It works great.

    Found a solution on one of the other forums. Go to Options/Advanced Options/Applications/Modules then scroll down until you see net_rim_yahoomessenger module (v 1.*.*) and delete it. After it deletes, the device will reboot, and when it comes back on, the error is gone and the icon is there.

    Jason,
    What can i say? you’re an angel! :) thanks!!
    I thought I really messed things up upon upgrading my 7130g to YM ver 2. Same things happened, icon gone and “uncaught exeption:java.lang.error” appeared after reboot.

    But after deleting the file, it works fine and the YM ver2 is great with new features Im now enjoying. Your post is truly appreciated! you’re the man!

    note: the file to be deleted is at the bottom of the list (might help)

  • hkpolarbear

    I followed the link, downloaded and installed Yahoo Messenger successfully. Could it be blocked by company policy ? But there is no icon showing. I check in Options|Advanced options|Applications and in the list I am seeing Yahoo Messenger 2.0.38 but I just can’t run it.

    Please advise.

    Does anyone know how to delete a module on the Curve 8320? The only thing it will let you do is edit permissions.

    MAKE SURE that the icon of the new yahoo is not hidden. I had to go into menu, show all, then go under the IM menu in the curve and it was right there, simply hididng. unclicked hide and I was good to go.

    I didn’t come up with this on my own. All credit goes to DBraxton on crackberry.com but it worked for me so I thought I would share it. I have a curve 8320.

    “8320 Users. You CANNOT delete the modules. I don’t care what the techs tell you.

    If you are a t-mobile customer (If you’re not a t-mobile customer… keep reading), don’t waste time on tech support. They can’t help you either.

    go to t-mobile.com/bbupgrade. This requires you to enter a valid phone number. Download the software for your phone. (ignore the stuff about version info. My version numbers matched, but this still worked.)
    Its about 82MB. The installation package has a complete version of Yahoo, AIM and other stuff that wouldn’t install on my BB.

    If you are not a t-mobile customer, call RIM at (877)255-2377. They can lead you to your providers hidden location.

    I hope this helps!”

    YAY! I have yahoo messenger again! :)
