    There's a new update for Facebook today and I can't seem to install the update. It keeps saying update unsuccessful. I also can't install twitter bc it keeps saying installation unsuccessful. Im running the Liberated Honeycomb theme.

    You need to uninstall the apps and then install the updated apps.

    Go into the toolbox under app management and remove apps. Hit menu to show all apps and then uninstall from there.

    I still can't uninstall the apps with that method. I still see them in my app drawer even after I delete them from toolbox. I rebooted afterwards and they're still there.

    You can use root explorer to delete the apk file for the app from the system/app directory and then reboot. For google voice and facebook, I had to use titanium backup to uninstall, reboot, and instal from market. This seems most likely because the apps and their widgets were themed by the mysterious beast skin I use and they are marked as system apps.

    This may sound stupid, but if I update will I lose the color scheme of the FB icon that is currently associated with my theme?

    Once someone creates a new themed FB for the current version(1.5.2)it will install perfectly over the previous version(1.5.1). Atleast thats how it worked for me last time FB updated.
