Before i flashed gapps though i uninstalled hangouts with titanium...don't know if that was neccessary...also can't detach talk from the market without the paid version of titanium...maybe i should get that, i still have credit left from when i got my nexus 7 last year

If you've installed twrp, when the tablet is on put the zip file on the sd card, reboot into recovery (twrp), select install, navigate to the sdcard folder and select the gapps zip file. it should install.
i also go to advanced and fix permissions after, don't know if it's needed or not.
I also used titanium to uninstall hangouts first, again i dont know if i needed to do this.

Thanks a lot. Will try that today.
P.S. You said "tablet" but I got Nexus 4 phone (from Google, unlocked). Hope it doesn't matter.

Lol aye sorry, tablet or phone, doesnt make much of a difference as long as you have the right twrp for your device...i was just doing it on my (2012) nexus 7 as my galaxy nexus hasnt got the OTA yet...

one annoying thing though...
I uninstalled hangouts without signing out.
Now there's a persistant connection that says "away" since whatever servers google uses for hangouts are too dumb to realise the connection is dead, it's gone, nothing is using it...and i have no way to kill off that resource, used pidgin to sign in on that resource then log off but it keeps rearing its ugly head...even when all android devices are off. sigh...i want to be invisible...

so yeah, before uninstalling hangouts, make sure you sign out of it completely!!!

Try changing your Google password, it should sign you out from that phantom process
Then change it back to the old one if you want, the first password change should break the login session ...

Google account password re-use isn't so easy.

The first part will work.
The "change it back" part will not, unless you change it 100 times first.

Google search [ Gmail not allowing to use old password? Let me change it back. ] for more details.

as stated before, downloaded the gapps for 4.2.2 & took everything out besides google talk, removed hangouts using titanium backup, flashed using twrp & now talk works. Oddly google search was missing after that but I just reinstalled from the app store & it works again.

*edit*
reuploaded file - found the part that was deleting gmail & search & removed it, hopefully this version is better.

Who's expecting google to stop you flashing talk in 5.0 if it ever shows?

Is this also possible without custom recovery, just with root?

This method worked for me, with the difference:
Used Super Manager (free from the market) with root access, to delete the system application - hangouts (bad-bad application) - before deleting it signed out (enter hangouts app, go to settings and sign out before uninstall !!!)
then downloaded the attached zip file, then flashed it with clockworkMod (recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.3.4-maguro.img)
(the recovery clockworkmod is not installed on my phone I run it everytime from image trough [fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.3.4-maguro.img ] command.
rebooted, and all is working fine.

Thank you for the suggestion and [gtalk-signed.zip]

Thumbs up Possible without custom rom, with root

Please read my previous post.
you can use clockworkmod for your device without installing it on your device.
(find the appropriate clockworkmod....img for your device from [clockworkmod.com/rommanager] (touch has touch support)
in the attached [fastboot-abd-clockworkmod.zip] file the clockworkmod is for samsung galaxy nexus) - the zip contains [aroma-fm.zip] file manager too - native file manager whitout booting into system.
power off phone,
start with vol.up+vol.down pushed and power on (until the menu appears) - connect to computer (can be connected even before in the boot menu)
(if the device is not recognized, use the attached drivers [Universal_Naked_Driver_0.72.zip]
run the [!loadClockWork[6034t].cmd] file,
in clockworkmod: navigate to "install zip" then "choose zip from sdcard",
select the [gtalk-signed.zip], and flash (install).
go back,
reboot.
done.
