I also checked the version and it tells me I'm still on 1.2. While the update is 2.0.
The market version doesn't seem to be offering everyone v2.0.122 (904984-30) just yet. For me, it's actually v1.2.018 which doesn't offer SMS/MMS as the description suggests.
The only official version which works for me is the one linked by @millerd79 here
. I installed it as a normal apk, rebooted, and everything works flawlessly (SMS, MMS, Video Chat). The libvideochat_jni.so file is now installed automatically, so no worries. Also, before install, I did not remove the libvideochat_jni.so file that I manually copied into system/lib previously. It was overwritten by the one within the apk.
