    I have the Droid X and yesterday I got the update for android 2.3, so I updated it and everything was okay (sorta), and I didn't like how my facebook contacts and my cell phone contacts got all mashed together in one, so I decided to remove my facebook account from the My Accounts thing. But when I went there to remove the account, my facebook account didn't show up. So I went to add accounts to see if it even had facebook anymore and it did and it also said I already had an account synced up with it, but the account wasn't showing up. I want to get rid of my facebook from My Accounts, but the account isn't even there (even though it says it's all hooked up). I'm sorry if it all sounds confusing, but I really wanna remove it. (It's not the facebook APP, it's the motoblur/My Accounts thing I need to get rid of).

    I used SQLite Editor.
    -Open the app and navigate to Accounts Storage (com.motorola.blur.setupprovider) should be the second one in the list
    -Open serviceaccounts.db
    -Open accounts
    -Scroll right until you see Facebook under the category account_pretty_name
    -Select that line and press the menu key
    -Select Delete Record and confirm

    You must be rooted and grant SQLite superuser permissions.

    I did this with my Atrix, but it should be the same as your Droid X. Hope that helped.

    if I have the original droid x and would like to update the os for processing purposes what is the most recently updated version and how do I download it... I've browsed the marketplace to find nothing...? and p.s. will it mess with the settings I have already set with apps such as launcher pro and handcent messenger...?

    SQLite Editor is an app available on the Android market for just under $3 (or you could alternately pirate it, but nobody does that >.>). Just launch the app and follow the steps in my previous post, no need to have it plugged in to your computer. All that process does is remove your facebook account from your phone.

    I removed mine from Settings>Accounts, but it still left a check next to the facebook logo on the Add Account screen. When I tried to re-add my account, my phone said that there was already a facebook account synced with the phone (and due to motoblur's limitations, could not add a second). I'm certain that this is a bug that motorola simply overlooked, and this was the easiest fix I found for it.

    I had changed my FB password and it wouldn't update my MOTOBLUR feeds anymore. When I tried removing and re-adding my account I only got access denied messages no matter what password was in there. I tried the fix above and it didn't work, ended up doing a factory reset to solve the problem. My back ups worked so it wasn't a problem. My advice to anyone who wants to change a password is to remove the account first and the add it back after.

    Just fixed this issue today on my rooted Droid 3 Android version 2.3.4

    I had removed the built in social networking app but while troubleshooting this i decided to reinstall it. After reinstalling the social networking app i opened it and hit configure, after it loaded through some stuff it brought me to a page to add accounts that looks just like the page when you go to Settings>Accounts but when i clicked on the facebook app with the little green check mark from this page it not only said that there is already an account so i couldn't add one but it asked me if i wanted to remove the existing one, I said yes. Then went back to the regular Settings>Accounts and was able to re add my facebook account. Then I just removed the built in social networking app again and all is good. :)

    How do you remove a built in app? I tried the traditional method and it wouldn't even give me the option to delete...I am having this same problem, except I never did remove my facebook acct...it just isn't listed in my accounts list and won't let me add because it is already added...I considered backing up all my apps and reseting phone, but what about apps I have paid for? Easy Tether Pro won't back up to SD card and I don't want to have to pay for it again...

    You have to be rooted to remove the built in app, but if you haven't removed it manually then you don't need to worry about reinstalling it. I never removed my account when this starting happening as well. As far as your paid apps go, they are linked with your google account so after adding your google account after a reset you can re download all your paid apps without having to repay, including easy tether pro which I also have.

    The free version of Titanium Backup is really good for backing up apps but only if you are rooted, not sure of a good free one for not being rooted
