Tutorial – Resolving FaceBook 3.2 / 3.2.1 Connection Problems

As you know, the developers recently released a 3.2 version of the FaceBook application. But many (jailbroken) users found themselves unable to connect.

An update, version 3.2.1, was released very quickly, but did not correct anything.

The main problems come from a conflict with BiteSMS and iPhone Delivery. Here is a tutorial to help you solve these problems.

Prerequisites:

  • A jailbroken device
  • OpenSSH installed via Cydia
  • FaceBook 3.2 / 3.2.1 installed on his device
  • Know how to connect in SSH
  • BiteSMS installed

Step 1

Go here (via your computer). Make a copy of the whole file.

2nd step

Connect in SSH to your device and go to the following path:

/ Library / MobileSubstrate / DynamicLibraries

Look for a file named “biteSMSsb.plist”. Of course; if BiteSMS is not installed, you will not find this file. In this case, go directly to the end of the tutorial.

Stage 3

Right click -> Edit file (via FileZilla). Otherwise, if you are on another software, download the file on your computer and open it.

Step 4

Replace the entire contents of the file with what you copied in step 1 of the tutorial.

Then save the file and send it back to the iPhone, replacing the old one.

Step 5

Respring your device using SBSettings. If you haven’t installed SBSettings, reboot your device

Normally facebook should load without problems 😉

For those who have not installed BiteSMS, but who have iphone DElivery installed, here is the method:

Replace the contents of the file /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/iPhoneDeliveryMS.plist

by

{Filter = {Bundles = (“com.apple.springboard”, “com.apple.MobileSMS”);};}

Thanks to Fixinou for the method 😉

If none of these solutions worked, reinstalling FaceBook may fix the problem. Otherwise, you can always reinstall an old version via Installous.

Thanks to Fred for the tutorial 😉
