    you need to move them from system/app to data app, reboot your phone and update. Or you could just delete them and do the same thing.

    I know they just came out yesterday, but does anybody know if (or when ;) ) 928Droid will be applying his theme to the new releases?

    Actually, I just got done renaming it. I renamed it facebook.bak, restarted phone, went to market, downloaded newest version and installed. It is now not themed with 928, he will have to make a patch for it. Or of course you will have to live with it or revert back.

    I personally don't use it enough to care. I will be reverting back for now. Worked just fine before and I like the way it looks themed:)

    Forget the Data/App folder, just concentrate on renaming the Facebook apk file in System/App or just deleting it. You will need a file explorer that allows mounting the SDCard as RW, instead of RO. I use Root Explorer, myself and it does an excellent job. Just go to System/App and click on Mount RW at the top, then delete/rename the APK and reboot the phone. Then install the new one from the market.

    yeah astro will do that. you will need Root Explorer. that'll allow you to move files and mount / unmount etc. astro acts funny and will show those folders as being empty. look for Root Explorer in the market.
