    FIX for Facebook sync issues!

    I'm going to get excited for a minute because I think I figured it out.

    Reading on xda-developers someone had commented that Facebook is now referencing the build.prop file to determine whether or not sync should be available to the user.

    I compared the Shiz build.prop against stock to looking for any glaring differences.

    In the stock build.prop you'll find:
    Code:
    ro.product.name=voles
    ro.product.device=sholes
    ro.product.board=sholes
    However, in Shiz you'll find:
    Code:
    ro.product.name=sholes
    ro.product.device=sholes
    ro.product.board=sholes
    Use Root Explorer to edit the build.prop so that the
    Code:
    ro.product.name=sholes
    reads
    Code:
    ro.product.name=voles
    Save and reboot.

    Open the FB app, hit menu, settings, scroll the the bottom, and set your sync options.

    You're welcome. I'll look into the Skype issue next.

    I can confirm it works. I edited the build.prop back to how it was originally (ro.product.name=sholes) and immediately lost the sync capability.

    Does this work?

    Will this fix the sync with contacts or will this fix the facebook notifications?

    It'll restore the synching with the contacts only.

    What exactly is this fixing? I haven't even noticed anything different about fb. I have JRummy's remix v0.8 but it still reads =voles, instead of =sholes.

    Edit: NM I'm retarded it was right to begin with.

    This is for people running the shiz. The option to sync facebook contacts with your google contacts was missing due to a typo. Now the contact pictures, status updates, etc. will pair with your google contacts.

    Long press on the build.prop, and open it with text editor.
