    Anybody have a MM smoked glass theme for the newest Facebook.apk, I've tried like 5 different ones, MM applies theme but when I apply the widget it just shows problem loading widget.

    Can you extract the APK and edit the background, then push back to /system/app, set permissions, sync, reboot and have that work?

    I don't see why it wouldn't work but I'm pressed for time due studying for finals and work. That's why I was looking for an MM theme but I'm sure I'll end up trying if nobody has an MM theme. Appreciate the suggestion.

    I am also looking for this. My home screen setup was perfect until this new facebook update and now the widget isn't themed anymore.

    Here is a MM theme that I made a little while ago... it is kinda large because it includes everything in the facebook.apk because I wasnt sure what file determined the text color. If you just push the framework the text is still black and very hard to read on a smoked background.

    PS: If it doesnt work make sure your apk is in /system/app and it is called Facebook.apk.

    Hope it works out for ya.

    BB here, I've tried a few things to modify the Facebook app and nothing works for me, and I know I've seen others in the last few days trying to modify it fail as well.

    Those that have the issue with black text. The xml files that need to be edited are widget_view. There are two, one in layout-land and layout-port. Open them in HxD and do a search for hex value of 08 00 00 1C . Other wise if you just want these files made to white, hit me up. As for the the MM not working. I would try it as an update.zip instead.

    I don't believe an mm theme or an update.zip would work because the update downloads to data/app. You will have to copy the apk from data/app, make the changes, uninstall the update, push your modified apk to system/app.

    ok.. I did it in a couple minutes. To apply uninstall the updates, rename the app to Facebook.apk, push to system/app by using root explorer or terminal emulator

    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    busybox cp -R /sdcard/Facebook.apk /system/app
    mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    sync

    Note: the jrummy facebook is themed for my rom. I didn't test these so let me know if it works.

    What was your method of install?

    FYI: I just tested it and it worked fine for me.

    Root explorer, moved to /system/app, set permissions, then rebooted.

    Ok. After testing it for a little I did get the smoked glass widget but the widget gave me an error after I signed into my account. I didn't manually edit the new xml file so I will do that and reupload.

    Still, it should have worked for you.. Did you uninsall the update from the market?
