    Facebook Smoked Glass Widget **Fixed Vertical View**Added Update.zip Format**

    ****Fixed vertical view****
    I attached a new picture also.

    To install:
    ---------------------------
    If you have the sdk installed on your PC drop the com.facebook.katana.apk into your C:\android\tools folder
    1. open a command prompt (start > run > type cmd > ok)
    cd\
    cd android\tools
    adb push com.facebook.katana.apk /system/app/
    exit
    ----------------------------------------
    use "root explorer" and copy the com.facebook.katana.apk to /system/app/
    -----------------------------------------
    To install using Terminal on your droid.

    1. copy the com.facebook.katana.apk to the root of your sdcard
    2. open terminal from your droid
    3. type in the commands below
    su
    sysrw
    cp -R /sdcard/com.facebook.katana.apk /system/app/
    sync
    sysro
    exit
    reboot
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    ***Added Update.zip format***

    ***This was tested in sprecovery, if using clockwork to install be sure to backup before installing.***

    To install using update.zip format:

    -Download facebook_update.zip
    -rename facebook_update.zip to update.zip
    -place update.zip onto the root of your sdcard.
    -Reboot your phone into recovery (turn phone off, hold x on the keypad then press the power button on the droid. Keep holding x until you are in recovery.
    -Use the D pad to navigate down to install, choose install
    -select Allow install update.zip
    -select Install update.zip
    -Once the message says complete.
    -Press the power button twice to go back to the first menu
    -select reboot phone.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you download the com.facebook.katana.zip, be sure to rename the file extension to .apk before installing.

    Enjoy dancedroid

    ud's forum has been down since yesterday afternoon so I thought i would post it here.

    Decompiling the xml's to change the color of the text to white was a pain in the ass.

    You can also just uninstall the old facebook, and use apkinstaller to push the new facebook.apk through.

    Well since the above link isn't working, here's the smoked glass facebook.apk.

    Just unzip it, run it with apkinstaller/root explorer/etc. You'll probably have to uninstall the original Facebook app first, but that's no big deal.

    Yes, this is the new version of FB. I originally downloaded this widget about 5 months ago from a user on a different forum.

    When the new version of facebook came out I had to decompile the xml's in the new facebook apk and update the text in the widget from black to white. I used the images from the original custom smoked widget that someone else created, but forgot who made them so I dont know who to give credit to.

    To answer your question yes this is the new facebook version.

    You should uninstall your current Facebook before, if you haven't already. Generally, when people have tried to install this and received "install failed" it's because they hadn't uninstalled their current FB first. If you're having problems uninstalling your current version, get Uninstaller from the market and uninstall FB like that, then try installing the new FB.
