Fix Facebook for iPhone 3.2.1 Can’t Login Problem

Share:

Facebook recently released their 3.2 (and subsequent 3.2.1) update which fixed bugs and introduced the Places feature (USA only at the moment). After writing about this update and then installing it on my iPhone 4, I encountered a problem instantly–I could no longer login to Facebook on my iPhone!

The facebook developers are aware of this issue:

If you have a jailbroken device, you may have experienced problems with our latest updates. We’ve identified the issue and have an update with a fix coming soon. Thank you for your patience.

Thanks to the iPhoneinCanada.ca community, here is a fix to the Facebook for iPhone problem when you can’t login. It involves a current jailbroken iPhone, SBSettings, and BiteSMS.

Here’s how to fix this login problem, so you can resume reading about things you really didn’t need to read about!

*update: this will fix your facebook login but disable the biteSMS quick compose feature. BiteSMS will have an update out soon.

How to Fix the Facebook for iPhone 3.2.1 Can’t Login Problem: Tutorial

1. Open SBSettings–>More–>Mobile Substrate Addons.

2. Disable the biteSMSsb toggle to OFF

3. Restart your Springboard via SBSettings:

4. Launch Facebook–you should now be able to login!

After following the above tutorial, I was able to login to Facebook, and BiteSMS still worked perfectly.

Let me know if the above tutorial was the solution that fixed your Facebook iPhone problem!

    I did that and was able to login to face book.. But now the bite SMS quick compose feature doesn’t work. Usually you can click the volume button and then tap the icon to quickly send an SMS from any screen. Womp womp

    This is NOT a fix but a workaround that disabled the functionality of BiteSMS — you lose quickreply/quickcompose. Sorry, but this article is misleading.

    To fix the problem one has to replace a “com.bitesms.plist” file with the one provided by developers: http://forums.bitesms.com/forums/1/topics/2759

    Version 4.99 will be pushed to Cydia shortly that corrects this problem for those folks who don’t want/can’t edit the plist file.

    Cheers.

    Nay! Not a fix! Tired of seeing this “solution”!!! As said in the first post, this disables the reason for installing biteSMS.

    Please edit… this is a workaround NOT a fix. The whole point of BiteSMS is the QC feature, with this disabled that won’t work, meaning you have to flip it back and forth to use both FB and BiteSMS QC.

    I use SMS way more than FB. I just leave it on until I need to use FB. A pain but at least it’s a workaround.

  • Not a fix at all. Here is a fix:

    SSH to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/ and edit biteSMSsb.plist

    replace all with:

    Filter = { Bundles = (com.apple.springboard); };

    Reboot, not respring!

    I said to myself, oh good a cure for the Facebook login BUT NO, I go to try this and I don’t have BiteSMSsb listed under Mobile Substrate Addons. I guess I have to wait till Facebook comes up with their next update, which I read they are working on already.
