Several months ago, when I upgraded to my Galaxy Note 3, I was disgusted by the new 'Hangouts' app that google had forced on me. I promptly rooted, uninstalled it, and found an old .apk for the older Talk app that Hangouts replaced. It worked well enough for a while, but one day several weeks ago the app simply lost its ability to sign in. I'm desperate for a solution to this problem that does NOT involve installing Hangouts. When I try to sign in to Talk, I get a spinning wheel that spins forever.
Thanks in advance!
