For those of you who are still rocking a Dell Streak 5, this bit of news should come as a bit of relief for you since the tablet was discontinued. A few developers have released an app that grants you full access to audio/video calling on your pocket tablet.

All you have to do to get this new app on your Streak 5 is download the file that's linked below, and then follow these instructions:

  • Download the .zip file (linked below)
  • Remove talk.apk from /system/app
  • -adb push … /system/app
  • -adb push …talk2.apk /system/app
  • Don't push the framework GoogleServicesFramework.apk
  • adb reboot

According to the developer, that should do it. Let us know how it goes in the comments!

Update 12/20: As stated in the comments, TheManii has very nicely put together a flashable .zip file for the Streak 5. 

[xda-developers 1, 2 | .zip file] Thanks, Vijay!
