Facebook 1.6 downgrade to 1.5

I, like many others, am unable to sync BB address book and calander with facebook since upgrading to 1.6. Whether its a BES issue or not, i'd like to downgrade to 1.5 until it gets sorted out. Unfortunately I do not have any backups. Is there any way to downgrade? Or a location to download 1.5?  

 

Any assistance would be appriciated.

 

Thanks

Re: Facebook 1.6 downgrade to 1.5

On your BlackBerry, look at Options > Advanced > Applications > Facebook. What version of the Facebook software do you see?

 

If it is anything other than 1.6.0.21, (a lower number than .21), then you need to upgrade your Facebook to the newer version that fixes the calendar issues.

Re: Facebook 1.6 downgrade to 1.5

I'm running 1.6.0.21

 

My problem is that 1.6 does not give me the option to sync the address book and calander as noted here:

It is totally disabled for me, and according to that site it's an issue with BES, which I do not have access to (company phone).  So as far as I can tell, the only solution right now is to deactivate my enterprise connection (which is out of the question), or go back to 1.5

Re: Facebook 1.6 downgrade to 1.5

I don't know of how you can downgrade to 1.5 UNLESS you have made a backup of your third party apps on your PC, and have the backup still there.

 

Otherwise, you can ask your BES Admin, since it must be disabled for a reason. They don't want your Facebook syncing with the address book.

You're probably right. I just don't know of any 1.5 downgrades unless a friend or someone saved the cod file for you.

Ok, so I found a copy of 1.5 floating around. Loaded that up and everything is back to normal. I'm not sure why RIM made this change but they need to do something about it for all of us on company exchange servers. I loved 1.6 but I won't use it if I can't use the sync features.

Re: Facebook 1.6 downgrade to 1.5

Hi - I am having the same problem with my BB and Facebook 1.6.  Where did you find v1.5?  I can't find it anywhere.

 

Thanks in advance!
