Default Android 4.3: Reverting to google talk from hangout

Any way to revert to the google talk app from google hangout in 4.3?
I tried to manually install the gtalk apk, but it won't install.

Wait, you deleted hangouts, then tried to install talk as a system app and it didnt work?

Default Seriously thinking of going back to 4.2.2

This hangouts app is terrible compared to gTalk. Is there any way I can install it on 4.3 without having to get root?

I am interested in this as well. My wife hates hangouts and her GNex is not rooted.

Default Google Talk from 4.2.2 can not be installed any more

First thing that I tried after updating my Nexus to JB 4.3 was to remove Hangouts and install back Google Talk from JB 4.2.2 but with no success. Application can not be installed any more. If anyone find solution for reverting back to Google Talk on JB 4.3 please let us to know. Hangouts are really terrible

Any chance for a solution which does not require root access?
