    Ever since I've rooted, the Facebook app hasn't worked right. The widget works, it downloads the contact pics for my phonebook fine, but the app itself doesn't load any data for some reason and doesn't update, citing that the "package wasn't signed correctly".

    I have gone through the process I went through to get google maps to work (deleted maps.apk, reboot, delete from app list in the settings menu), and it won't let me delete the facebook app from the app list, for some reason- doesn't even show a link to uninstall it. I'm stuck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    I had this issue last week. Delete and reactivate your account. Worked for me.

    What do you mean? On the full site? Or what?

    It actually randomly started working. However, it won't update.

    Are you having troubles with all your google accounts or just facebook?

    It's actually not an issue with the account- it's an issue with the actual app. I don't have any other issues with any other accounts/apps at this point.

    Install the facebook app below, use the update.zip method. Unless you have the android sdk installed on your pc. The adb method is much quicker.

    Seems to have worked. It had me login after I rebooted.

    I went to the market and "installed" the market version, and everything seems good now. Thank you very much for the help!
