    I keep getting "Installation Unsuccessfull" every time I go to apply the update. Any one know how to fix this?

    Thanks

    It's probably because you have facebook installed to system/app when it needs to be in data/app to update. To fix you can delete the facebook.apk with root explorer or something similar in your system/app folder. You also need to delete the davlik cache in the data folder. If you need more instruction than that let me know and I can be more detailed.
    You also need to reboot before you try to download the FB app again.

    That took care of it. Forgot that I had installed a themed version of facebook. I didn't do the davlik cache wipe though. Everything seems to be working fine.

    Thanks again!

    Yup. I just used root explorer and deleted facebook.apk from system/apps. Then remounted it is as read only. Rebooted and installed the new facebook from the market.

    Any other suggestions? I don't have a facebook.apk in system/apps -- I do have a com.something or other.facebook-katana in my data/apps.

    Still unable to update... this happens pretty much any time a "standard" android app gets updated (maps is the most common culprit, I am pretty sure I still don't have that update)

    I am running bb5 and I had no issues downloading and installing facebook 1.4.0. Was also able to update maps with no issues.

    I'm having problem deleting FB, I'm running BB5 and do not have root explorer however I was able to locate the file using astro but it will not let me deleted, is there a script like the car home that Pete has on his BB tools to remove FB

    Use root explorer, go to system/app dir and rename facebook.apk to facebook.apk.bak, then restart your phone and install from market. Thats what I did
