    Hey all! Can anyone tell me how to get AdamZ themed facebook widget only or even the one on Koushs remix rom. I am currently running UD7.8 which is ese53 based and I love it but I REALLY want a themed FB widget. It seems only to be included in ROM packages and not individually through Metamorph or maybe I just can't figure it out! Thanks everyone!

    No I think that's what I'm looking for. I used to have the smoked glass theme when I had a 2.0.1 based rom. But its my understanding that it will not work on the ese53 based roms I.e. ultimate droid. If I'm wrong please let me know. The times I tried tol apply it I got a facebook file doesn't exist message from metamorph.

    Here is instructions that I followed. Found in this thread.
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/chevyno1/28503-simply-stunning-2-0-2-release-ese53-3-9-2010-a.html

    Here is the file:
    4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download Facebook.apk

    First go to Market and uninstall Facebook

    I would mount your system in Read/Write.

    go to ADB shell
    the go to root access by typing su
    You should see a "#" symbol

    type
    cd /system/app 'enter'
    rm Facebook.apk 'enter'


    cd /data/app 'enter'
    rm com.facebook.katana.apk 'enter'

    You might get a file not present error. and that is ok

    exit to your command prompt with ADB access and make sure you put the downloaded file in the same directory.

    Then type the following commands
    adb shell sysrw
    adb push Facebook.apk /system/app
    adb shell sysro

    After this you should have the themed facebook. You can go back to the market and update facebook and still keep the themed widget.


    Let me know if you have any questions

    Just one quick question, when you say go to your ADB shell, do you just mean the tools directory?

    Okay got it working thanks everyone! For anyone interested here were the exact steps I followed:
    1. Download facebook.apk from 4shared: (4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download Facebook.apk). *****Put the file in your android tools folder that you use adb shell from.
    2. Uninstall Facebook from your phone.
    3. Connect your DROID to your computer. (Do not mount your phone) Open your C: and cd to your android SDK tools folder (the same folder you downloaded the facebook.apk into).
    4. Then type each of the following commands individually:
    -adb shell sysrw (hit enter)
    -adb push Facebook.apk /system/app (hit enter)
    -adb shell sysro (hit enter)
    5. Leave ADB Shell and reload your facebook widget you may have to resign in.

    Thanks for every ones help and links! Hopefully others will find this thread useful!!!

    Thanks, but if you update the app from the market, don't you lose your widget? That's what happened to me...

    By installing this way I no longer have the app in my downloads from the market. I believe its because its pushed and installed in my system apps!

    There is no need. If you didn't install it through the market. To double check just open your market downloads and verify that its no listed. If it is just select it and select uninstall. But by downloading this .apk and pushing it to your system apps it overwirtes the system installed version.

    yes.....here is what needs to be done
    1) using Root explorer find com.katana.facebook.apk in data/app
    2) Rename it to Facebook.apk
    3) Move to system/app

    Apply metamorph theme as usual

    I've been doing this for every ROM i've had...presently on BB0.8 which is ESE53

    Thanks DroidHoff, makes sense. You're right it's no longer listed in the market, however I did have to go into Settings>Applications>Facebook and hit uninstall updates to make it go back to the correct way. Thanks again, bro
